    If that was the case, wouldn't someone with just scuba gear have dived in the area to look for confirmation. Heck, in the shallow waters of a port, you can just dive without any gear.

    SD memory card? I would think almost any of them will either have one or have a slot for one. I just purchased a card and it slipped into my $25 Nokia with no sweat.

    Is this method correct?

    Like so many questions asked on this and other machining boards, that one is impossible to answer without more information.

    What you do in that case is wait IN LINE, blocking the checkout until the supervisor arrives. Leave your purchases on the counter or belt. Then, when the supervisor comes, talk to him/her about it....

    Boy, that is an old one.

    First, I would like to see a closeup photo of the end of the barrel. I wonder if that is some kind of nut there. Perhaps one that requires a special wrench.

    Two thoughts:

    The material: could it be due to pockets of harder or softer metal? Have you tried another alloy?

    I would try a solid carbide, center cutting end mill that is a bit undersized....
