    PHA! When I was doing residential framing and got a splinter, first thing I'd do is whip out a razor and cut out the splinter. Let me know if you want me to elaborate. I deleted that part.,,, I'm not...
  5. Random tip for metal splinters - use your calipers.

    I saw a guy get a big splinter from a piece of metal on the lathe. He immediately whipped out his calipers and use those as tweezers. Worked really well from what I could tell.

    Buy a carbide tipped masonry drill bit, go to the bench grinder (with any wheel, doesn't matter) and sharpen the point. I go fairly shallow on the relief angle and I'd try a standard point angle....

    That's along the lines of what I suggested. Wonder what would be better - FRP or formica? Guess it depends on the price.

    I can't recall every messing with FRP... I know formica makes a good work...

    So, you're using the tailstock to hold the tap, not just center it. In that case, depending on the amount of accuracy you need, what about a socket adapter for the chuck and some tap sockets? No...

    Since Forged in Fire aired and especially since Wuhan Flu, anvils are stupidly expensive. A good, new, US made, 140 pound steel anvil is $10 a pound.

    I've done a lot of chisel work in steel and iron - fortunately, most of it is hot work at an anvil.
