    hwacheon, WHACHEON, Hawcheon.... wtf... all the same?

    What is "accurate" supposed to mean ? Mount a dro and turn the handle a little, anything is "accurate to .0001" The statement is meaningless.

    Trying to clear loft, sell OG redwood

    Most older houses in northern california are all framed in redwood and a lot of the siding, too. Rough, even. Real 2x4's. All those victorians ? All redwood. Seems to be good for earthqake resistance :)

    hwacheon, WHACHEON, Hawcheon.... wtf... all the same?

    No. They start with pinyin, then move on to characters. Pinyin was actually designed in China to help in teaching the masses of people who could not read. In fact, this was surprising to me, but a whole lot of older people still cannot read or write. Pinyin is used all over the place, I don't...

So the state of alabama decided this, the benefits should...

    Any experiences running a "home" shop in Utah?

    We can thank ben bernanke. Dump trillions of dollars into goldman-sachs and what will happen ? you think those guys want worthless paper ? Of course they immediately turn it into real stuff - like houses and companies and commercial property. Then they jack up the rent and all the costs of...

    Cincinnati universal cylindrical grinder 15x80

    I wouldn't trust anyone who tried to sneak in under someone else's name. Right off the top that's deceptive. Liars tend to lie. Unless it's people who used to work there, rebuilding the old ones or something .... but doesn't sound like it. People do rebuild cincinnati and landis grinders so...

    Any experiences running a "home" shop in Utah?

    For the amount of money they piss away ? they could buy Detroit and give every one of them a house. It's ridiculous. And annoying.

    Great new tax deduction in Alabama

    You have embryos, Buck ? Or just identify as an embryo-carrying person of unidentified gender ? Wait ! wait ! possibly this is a case of sex discrimination ! Us males are facing discrimination in tax law by being denied deductions for embryohood ! Aren't sperm children too ? Does Alabama have...

    Buying a TL-2. Should I get the tool changer?

    None of my business but ... that TL-2 looks like a lathe built by a committee to me. So many compromises, good at none? First off, a lathe with a real toolchanger is not a hassle at all. Conventional eight tools or better, horizontal spindle, vertical plate; except for rare occasions you'll...

    hwacheon, WHACHEON, Hawcheon.... wtf... all the same?

    Somebody got turned on the Y .... but a little correction is in order. The spellings that people used to see for chinese were wade-giles. It was developed at Yale, but the problem with it is, it doesn't make sense. If you know how it works then you know that what wade-giles spells as "peking"...

    hwacheon, WHACHEON, Hawcheon.... wtf... all the same?

    okay ... first off, 1 1/2 to 4" diameter is never going to be "heavy loads". The little 13" square head Colchester would probably be fine for you, it's a nice smaller lathe, easy to manipulate, handy, looks good, well made, all that. But they don't make them anymore. Beyond that, between name...

    hwacheon, WHACHEON, Hawcheon.... wtf... all the same?

    Yeah, you could look at it like that. I look at it more like ... errr .... uninformed. Lathes don't do tenths. Has nothing to do with quality. If you want to talk tenths then you can ask about the "quality" of a grinder. Or, if you want to be like all the other cool kids, just put a dro on it...
