    Use a counter-bore with a cut diameter the size you want the finished hole. Make/turn a pilot for the c'bore the diameter of the current hole. It will follow the pilot and cut the hole to the proper size, even with an extension. :mrgreen:

    Dan: I'm having trouble visualizing your fix, could you post a pic? 1st pic is of the auto-disc PM base where you can see the shiny spots I filed down until they were flush with a disc to tighten/eliminate the gap between the disc and seal, so...

    I tracked the leakage om my auto disc to the uneven pressure on the seal. When I tightened the off-center screw that holds the hopper on, it cocked the hopper. That created uneven pressure on the seal and powder leakage. I made a parallel clamp...

    Bought this HF lathe to make a MC part sold online for about 1/2 the cost of the lathe. So I made 3 parts and sold the other 2 to pay for the lathe. I have operated lathes of all sizes in a former life and knew what I was in for though. I had...
