    I've thought of making them. Starting with a commercial micrometer frame, say a 0-3 interchange anvil one, it doesn't look like there is a lot to it or that would be any great challenge to 99% of...

    One way to make sure they show up is to sue for 20,000 not 200. Sure its BS, and they get settled before court for say the 200, but it won't be ignored as...

    To tell if its bad enough to need honing, check the bore with a bore gauge. Measure at various places along it. I'd be a bit surprised if the lathe was worn enough to need scraping but the...
