    Both of those are brand name machines with a decent reputation ... but as for comparing to k&t and cincy, what you will miss with most of those big honkers is the quill. That's more important than...

    I can't think of any drill that's going to guarantee a great finish. If the finish was important I'd probably drill undersize fast then ream. That would be repeatable and fit your size and finish...

    If you want to do it yourself, a #3 Fellows can be had for much less than that attachment - less than half, probably less than a quarter. It takes up about 2' x 2' by 4' tall, and will kick out those...

    Differential ? What's that ? If you want to go around a corner, just change the stagger :)

    It wasn't always. They got bought. And now bought again, I guess.

    At least Brown & Sharpe mostly left them alone. This is too bad :(

    With a slightly deep hole like this, I've always liked parabolic flute twist drills, since they have easy chip exit.

    In fact, from using them for deepish holes I grew to like them for most...

    ^ +1 :)

    Another reason some do the p.o.r. thing these days is to snag your info. Once they get your email, you're going to see hundreds of stupid emails for stuff you have no interest in. Who...

    7 to 8-ish ? seriously ?

    For comparison, a few years ago (okay, ten) I helped a place that had a bunch of clapped-out 1940's #7 Fellows shapers. With a bunch of work tuning and adjusting we got...

    I'm not in the habit of throwing my apron over my face and crying "oh gosh, I'm so helpless in this big bad world !" :D

    I've never had small claims consume more than a few hours, and every time I...

    Okay, I should have said payment on delivery :) The C can be checks, too. Or electronic or whatever.

    After years of this, I just went C.O.D. Lost a couple of customers but they were the ones who never paid anyhow. For a small place, cash flow is a killer. Purchasing agents ARE going to take the 2%...

    Exactly ! If they are so important, why can't the US do it themselves ?

    Maybe because it would require an actual investment in people and facilities ?

    At least in California, it's not "you don't need." It's "you can't have." They go out of their way to make sure this is a small-time venue.


    It's not incorrect. It's obsolete. As I am also sort...

    I've said for years that all of Wall Street should be in prison. Forever.

    Why don't we put these bastards behind bars ?

    By whose standards ? :)

    No way you're going to touch a gear machine for cutting teeth. If other requirements of the part make using a gear machine non-optimal, then it can be worthwhile.

    I've done this for a few friends for a fraction of the US cost, but it does take a little while. Six weeks, by the time all is said and done.

    At least the extortion is out of the closet this time. Usually they do it in secret so the US can say "tinfoil hat ! tinfoil hat ! normal business forces, we had nothing to do with it !"
