    Joe, from what I can ascertain the Penetrascope works much like a regular Wilson or Rockwell type tester in that you apply an initial load which pushes the diamond penetrator into...
  5. Everede RH-2 Boring/Milling head documentation?

    I recently bought an Everede RH-2 boring/milling head which despite being in great shape didn't come with any documentation.

    Halligan, you're right on about the SD class and I have to say that I agree with you on the sleekness and beauty of the Iowa class BB's.

    Yes he must be smiling.
    First Sea Lord Jackie Fisher had a similar effect on the Royal Navy.

    "Gunnery! Gunnery! Gunnery! Hit the target, all else is twaddle" is attributed to Jackie Fisher.
