    I'd messaged angle grinder privately on this, but for the public record, he did a superior job of packing a combination of heavy metal chunks (the indicator stands) and delicate instruments in one...

    If it were 1/2" solid round, it would have more machining and scrap value. As wire cable, it doesn't have much machining value, and it's harder to melt down without significant material losses.

    If you find any, astonish us all and post the source here. Go&Go tools were reasonably common, but I don't think there was ever a second source for their proprietary cutters. And the dominance of...

    A 50" overall length is really, really pushing it for any decent machine. While there are probably a number of obscure, unobtainable machines of decent quality that fit that constraint, about the...

    In addition to counterbores, check out Forstner drill bits. (A type, not a brand.) They are like what you show, but without the pilot drill.

    Brochure linked from that webpage says:

    That doesn't answer the question of who makes it, of course. Although the brochure also claims "100% MADE IN GERMANY".

    I've done just this on a floor-standing arbor press frame that was far too large to submerge in any bucket or improvised basin. Made a dam from semi-rigid plastic sheet and plumber's putty to...

    I think he's talking about an edge finder with 1/2" shank and 1/2" endcap.

    I am also having a hard time visualizing how this annulus ("washer") was cut into segments. I am guessing that the thing...
