    Put a 10% federal tax on the 26.1 billion American dollars that individuals in the U.S. send to Mexico in wire transfers each year. Think 10% is too much? Sales tax in the city of Los Angeles is real close to that. Yep! Belongs in The Pit.

    You can't mill in a drill press. Drill press quills and spindles are not designed to take side loads and I don't know of any drill presses that have collet type tool holders that will hold an end mill or milling cutter securely. Milling should not...

    While it hasn't been in use as a center-point lube since I think the early half of the 20th century, I think I still have a small can of "white lead" somewhere in the shop. How's that for going back in time?

    I'd do some thorough checking, as I recall reading something about Kali's DOJ ignoring federal definitions and assigning their own to black powder "firearms". I suspect they're looking forward to the day that "firearms" will be confiscated. They...

    A live center is multi ball bearings designed for severe service in the tailstock of a lathe. I even use a carbide-tipped (not live) lathe dead center with straight shank for starting taps. If the tip (point) of the center spins, it's a "live...

    What merlin101 said. Same, no difference. No grooves, TL/micro grooves, lube grooves all powder coat just fine. Don't worry about it.

    The little spring-loaded tap guides are handy. I have one and will use it when I only have 1 or 2 holes to tap and run-out isn't that critical. If close tolerances on concentricity/run-out need to be maintained, I do it like bangerjim describes....

    mold maker replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    A tip is supposed to be a personal "Thank You" for above and beyond service. I grew up in an era when 10% was a good tip. If the service you are tipping is the same, why do they expect a higher percent in a tip? The food/hotel price has increased...

    I use the Clear Ballistics synthetic gel. Got two 24 inch blocks and two molds. It is resuable. Not too expensive. Just add a crock pot and you good to go casting gel blocks. Fun to use

    I use #000 in a Governor It goes 16 inches in bare gelatin Very similar to getting smoked by Wild Bill Hickok with his .36 caliber revolvers, but rather than a single hit, 4 at once.
