    How do you store your collets?

    Hey John, a small sheet of clear plastic fastened at the top and trailing down on each rack would help reduce dust collection plus allow you to see items held in the racks. Just saying!

    anvil surfacing

    @John Conroy, enjoyed reading your post. When you speak to "Small depth of cut and slow spindle speed are best for flycutters." Can you be more specific on speeds and depth of cut. How serious is the hit and miss banging at the edges? I assume the same process would also apply to facing a...

    Drill grinder C$200

    One of the nice features of this forum is we can kibitz with one another without causing a damaging rub of any sort. Keeping things civil is an art in itself, my rule of thumb is if you can't say something nice don't say anything! We reside on the northwest side of Moose Jaw a short distance...

    Expect a rise in cost of off-shore products

    Expect a rise in cost of off-shore products

    After the Suez mishap with the Ever-Given running aground and the money that was paid out by insurance companies I'm not really surprised by shipping costs going up. It's all relative and someone has to pay meaning we consumers. Besides that the pandemic has driven world prices up right across...

    Better yet put a cement cutting blade in your hand grinder and cut a straight line across your slab of cement say about 1" deep. As you break the cement away with a sledge the underneath cement can be rough. This setup has worked for me.
