    For their safety, keep your pets out of any area where there might be metal chips on the floor. I don't let Timber in the shop. If you have a good sized air compressor, consider a spray mister. On the mill, I prefer them to using flood coolant.

    While there are instances where you don't want to use a cutting oil (cast iron is one that comes to mind). For most machining, a cutting oil or fluid will reduce vibration, produce a better finish and extend the life of your cutters. For many...

    Model 70 were chambered in 284 and I think some 700s were. I believe the Kimber and cooper rifles have it as a chambering available also. In a hunting gun a variation of this cartridge might be interesting the 6.5 X 284 it was is popular with the...

    The Gentleman at the garage offered us his home to wait for my brother even. I did do a couple oil changes for him for the use of the phone and time waiting. I was really impressed with the people we met there

    The plunk test is about as cut and dried, for sure as it gets. While not as handy as the "Gages" are its the exact same chamber your using in the gun. If you have some rounds that chambered left use them in your gage and make note of how much...

    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.

    Any mould can warp. Its not so much the material but how hard it was machined and worked. Certain ways of making the stock also contribute to this stress. extruded materials like brass and aluminum have a lot of stress in them heating cooling cycles...

    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...

    I would prefer more x travel in the unit. y travel isn't a big issue but with longer x travel hole spacing for both blocks can be done in 1 set up. The big thing with the x y tables is getting them mounted square and true so moving in one direction...

    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?
