    For Sale Morrison and Marvin mini Wilton Vice kit

    I'd put my name in line if it doesn't sell to 34Dave. I've built two and they are a fun project which turns out a very nice and useful tool. I wish they'd make more.... Martin

    Sold Model Wilton Vise on Ebay

    It's a casting kit made by Morrison and Marvin. I've made two of them. They are some of the finest castings I've ever seen. I thoroughly enjoyed making the two I made. I was going to buy another but they are out of stock. When I bought my second one I was told they were selling all the...

    Wanted WTB Ball top Monitor kit

    If you decide to make some kits, I'd definitely be interested in one. Even if it's just the main body parts, I think you'd have no problem selling them. I would think a full blown kit would be a pain in the butt to produce so just the main cast parts of the body would be enough for most of...

    For Sale Magnum 91 casting kit plus some extras

    I have a casting kit of the Magnum 91 (15cc) r/c plane engine. This was originally put out by Morris Moser, at least that's what the drawings show. Best I can tell is that it's from the early 90's. I picked this up several years ago and then proceeded to add to my casting kit collection to...

    For Sale Many drills, chamfers, and counterbores

    I recently bought a toolbox from an auction and it was full of a bunch of drills, chamfer tools, and counterbores. The drills are all in good shape. Some of them may need sharpened, but for the most part they have little use. Some of the chamfer tools have been resharpened. The counterbores...

    The tool should have quite a b The back plate has a bored hole to fit the crankshaft, then it gets put on a fixture I made to turn the outside edge to match the angle of the spinner. I leave a small lip on the back of the plate for the cone to sit against. From there, the cone just gets...

    setting up for metal spinning

    There's no point in annealing the aluminum. 1100 is pure aluminum. It's not going to get softer. I've found it can be work hardened. I've not found it necessary to anneal it in the work I do. I would also try maple. It's much finer grain than oak, though a bit more expensive. I would try...

    setting up for metal spinning

    I wouldn't waste your time on the 6061. Just wait until the 1100 comes in. When you get out to the edge, you will need to use a back stick. At least that's how I do it. It takes some practice, but you are basically spinning the material with the tool and using the back stick as the "buck"...
