    OT: USPS international shipping tracking

    USPS & UPS are not the same entity. In their defense, with the incredible volume of traffic that they both see, I am amazed that they do so well. That being said, when I have problems with USPS, it is usually AU. Lee (the saw guy)

    I think that you need an electrician to help you with this. There are numerous areas where you can make an error and cause damage to a very expensive unit. I am not able to trouble shoot your unit from afar, and you would be much further ahead to hire local expertise.

    I have railed many timed about the total bull-shit R-8 collet on standard Bridgeport mills! I strongly suggest that you check out a Lagun. They are a SOLID machine, not made of tin foil, and they are available with an international standard 40nmtb collet system. Lee (the saw guy)
