    having 2 lathes

    :D:D Not to mention how they somehow don't have the full amount asked would I take what they brought... Appreciate the motivation to keep it. who knows, if it sits unused but pristine for a few years..prices go up, maybe then I would not lose $ on it. Also, I am not self-convinced that...

    Birthday DRO's

    ;D ;D My birthday present to myself..! DRO's for the lathe and mill. yeehaw. Sino's via the ebay. wish I had the proper taps to get started today though!! ( plug + bottom tap).

    a nice mystery metal find

    "located" for pocket change, a nice HUNK of 5-1/2 round steel yesterday....about 4 long. and man, is it HEAVY. and no rust on it - even though it has been outside.

    Kits..the down side and the up side..

    Kits..the down side and the up side..

    lol, the down side: having to spend $$ on taps and dies for 3-48, 5-40 and the like. (let me guess - the kit maker sells these ) the upside: can fix (maybe) or make (maybe) those holes and screws in my rifles. lol.
