    Default Master specialty co. Center locator

    Has anybody ever used one of these?

    Recently saw one posted for sale, and was intrigued. But it appears to be unique to this company, perhaps it was their entry into an improved way to do something we were already doing quite fine without this?

    I am trying to figure out if It is worth owning one ; )

    What a shame, two guys running the outfit at about $100k a year founded at 201, and we don’t know how it works.

    *Could have /should have come to PM and ask “How should I market this”

    Could be that the clamp is an exact .10000. so one might measure to that 90* and 90* to spot a drill hole very close...? and

    I tried the search function on the pm forum but no dice. I wonder if archived posts are outside the search function?

    Looks like just a drill bushing guide.

    This is starting to make sense now. Had no idea about the optical aspect of it.
    Appears to work like an optical center I have combined with a drill bushing set.

    That paperwork looks like Ral Mikes "toll o rama".

    Thanks for sharing.

    A bit off the subject and don't want to steal the OP's post. Came across a video on youtube, seen something that had a 3 or 4 jaw chuck attached. Looking for something interesting to watch I ran the video. Was a stupid video of some guy making something from wood. Wondering why the photo on the subject had a chuck I watched it for a little while often fast forwarding to get to the end. Quite a few holes he drilled on a drill press. What was interesting since I have never seen it was some kind if laser light source put a red 90°ish angle so that the lines went 45° left and right, the intersection was at the spindle center. Could have possibly been a complete X and I couldn't see the other 1/2 and since he wasn't selling the light it was only there while he was drilling holes. Not the most accurate center finder but good for a drill press. Yeah I seen what junk the guy made, first was a wooden jig saw, then something else as I fast forwarded looking for a complete item made with a chuck, A wood lathe made with wood! I don't have the site but if I see it again I'll post it if requested.

    Stuff millenials do on U tube reminds me of the troop of monkeys who discovered that a big rock in their jungle territory could be used to smash nuts.
