    Just to clear up any confusion, here's my email to Vern. ;) " Hi Vern- Okay, I think I know what you saw now... I was probably talking about belt grease. I don't really ever use it on my belt grinders, but I do use it on my variable speed 9" disc sander. I grind a blade on the belt...

    Multi-Bar Twist Billet For Sale

    Nice!!! :cool: For anyone that doesn't know--- that's a smoke'n deal on a 3 bar composite. There's a lot of work represented in that billet, especially being so clean and showing such control. :1:

    3 boxes of end cuts of micarta(tm) and g10

    This was a screaming deal!!! I got a box and it was way more value than I even expected. I dumped the stuff from one box to another and got rid of a lot of the dust. Then dumped it all on the shop floor and scattered it around. By then, they all looked as clean as most scales I've bought...

    The best sandpaper

    I realize this is "necroposting" or whatever, but after having spent several months working with both Norton Black Ice and the Rhyno Red stuff that Deker mentioned, I have to give my favor to the Red stuff. In my nerdy brain, I want to believe the fancy Norton stuff has to be better, but from...

    You guys rock... yet again!

    So I made a small order to MKS and just followed through with the default shipping method. Turns out that part of my order required it to go UPS ground... which was of course more money. Tracy and Lora just upgraded me no questions asked. I offered to pay the difference, but they said not...

    Milling machine has landed :)

    NO :running dog: That is possible, but would be a whole lot of head-ache Erin. Indexing pins and bedded handles are a whole lot easier than that route :)

    Milling machine has landed :)

    Josh, Great find, I know that excitement you have right now :) An edge finder is one of the basics that is a good thing to have and learn how to use, but I've NEVER used one to slot a guard. I eyeball center on the part, mill the slot... and do all the shaping of the guard AFTER it's...

    help finding KA-Wool and ITC-100

    One major thing that will help your search is it's "KAOWOOL" not "ka-wool" :)

    Jigs: Curse or Cure?

    I really like Les's point about people having a passing knowledge of something. I think about 98% of the folks who get their panties in a twist about machining equipment would have a change of heart if they actually signed up for a couple of machining classes. It's only easy when you don't...

    hidden tang glue-up fixture

    Thanks guys :) Jim, that is an EXCELLENT idea. I was going to use some rubber or leather, but the little pads would be a lot better and could be sized to the bolts. Most of the time the handle will still be in a block form when it goes in here, but those pads would sure work well if it's...
