    If you deal with "unknown" people letting out space, make sure your insurance covers you for all the risks. Be especially aware of any laws in your state that could effect you if anyone is doing...

    Mhajicek, got your payment (thanks!), but didn't get a shipping address. Would you send it when you get a moment?

    I knowz all, seez all (and haz a Sawzall).

    Sure, it's overkill, but I'm actually not kidding. Maybe another $200-400 out of pocket for a proper reinforced concrete block rather than fill and...

    Yer going about this all wrong - that there hole is a gift! It's just what you need to pour a proper foundation for a new medium V or HMC. Chose what'cha want, get the anchor points settled, and...

    If an "Albrecht style" keyless chuck is what you're after, I have a number of extra new in box Llambrich 0-3mm (not 1/8") chucks available. Like this, except a J1 mount taper, not J0:

    Llambrich...

    "By Grabthar's Hammer, you shall be passed by QC!"

    This is the way I view it too. If you're sending a print to a shop, why make it any harder for the shop to perform its job well?

    In cases Like this, the folks writing the standards should have...

    Hang around and please comment some more, Sum Dum. It would be nice to have an endmill guru to go with our insert guru.

    The combo Rotabs had a lot of utility back before CNC was big. Now, just occasional use in real shops, maybe still handy for home-types. But at that size, I wasn't kidding - they're pretty heavy.

    I concede - I can't find an inch tolerance either.

    Sort of annoying, maybe they're trying to remind us that Imperial is out of fashion? :(

    Fair call. But presumably Fraisa has "regular" ball endmills too, perhaps those were the ones he tried? IDK, maybe the claimed +/- 5u isn't?

    These seem to be exactly what the OP is looking for. Unless they're hideously expensive or not "really" available, he may be set.

    Presuming you have a lathe, a reasonably close way to indicate a threaded hole is to first turn the head of a screw of the same thread round, then thread the screw into your part. The round head is...

    Heh. It happens every decade or so. I promise not to tell your buddies.

    My quick thought is that this can be done with a shop-made machine, but you'd need really good stiffness in the frame and linear slide that controls depth, and careful design of the male/female rolls...

    Feasibility depends a lot on either how "shallow" a bead is acceptable, and/or the formability of the Al alloy and temper.

    A better description of the actual bead for you'd like, and the...
