    Sorry, but this ^^^ vision, structure, etc. is a lot of management-meeting blather and not relevant to the OP. All an experienced shop owner needs to read is "Cincinnati Sabre" and the fact there's...

    I have to mention that these MariTool holders are really, really nice-looking high quality pieces. And, astonishingly, priced at less than 50% of the cheapest Interstate crap from MSC. This is...

    Yes, history is clear.
    In America, Christians stopped executing witches three centuries ago, whereas under Islam infidels and apostates are beheaded on social media.

    Another New Machine Day

    These two Hyundai Wia TCs were bought for 1st and 2nd op on our steering control valves. I miscalculated their size, assuming incorrectly that the "160" in the model number, aside from chuck...
