    The only reason is convenience. Try it lengthwise with the table and it will become readily apparent.

    Somewhere in the 70s I think, since medical malpractice insurance wasn't mandatory yet, hence the lower price. True the lawyers are part of the blame but doctors, staff, do stupid mistakes. A...

    My father-in-law fought it tooth and nail when it was first being proposed as mandatory. His fellow doctors kept saying what's the big deal, it's only $200 a year?

    Another thing, his advice to...

    Such is the power of pay to play government. It is truly amazing how good an investment a lobbyist can be, in some cases well over a thousand to one, dollars that is. What percentage of fat is...

    I too do as Finegrain shows but I typically use a .0675" radius with .01" blend radiuses so I can use an 1/8" end mill. How much clearance with the corner of the part depends on if I am clamping on...

    Here is an article from the BBC that is interesting, probably about the same thing. I do buy a few things from them but try like hell to avoid them.

    I too do mine myself, and traffic does matter. I have noticed the more traffic it has the more orders I get. I do my own SEO as well, which can not be overstated how important that is.

    Yeah, that pre-existing condition will really suck now that they can discriminate for it. I really liked that part of the ACA.

    Do a search on "Bill Clinton's diet", it is very informative. Not...

    I too am very sorry to hear this and hope you do well with it. It sounds like you need to follow the Bill Clinton diet, religiously. Nothing to do with politics and worth looking into. It would be...

    I just got back from our accountant doing our taxes. We barely were qualifying for Obamacare so were paying the high end of the catastrophic plan, but went over so now we have to pay it all back. ...

    I have a 2001 Mycenter 1 and no hydraulics. Are you sure yours has it? Any chance it's low air pressure?

    Spindles are like cats, they have 9 lives. Hard to say just when they run out of them or what crash costs how many lives. I have had some live through bad crashes and had minor crashes cause a...

    One man shop, 30,000+ parts a year and increasing, manual is getting old. With a 1/8" blade 4%-20% of the stock goes to the cut so a band saw would cut down on waste, if it cuts straight, for me. ...
