    There is a hole in the table underneath the cross slide unit, with I guess a corresponding drain hole on the cross slide unit. If you remove it you will see it. It’s possible a return gallery is...

    Iíll go along with that. I always found them far to inconvenient and clumsy for production. The only good thing I saw in one was a Mastiff model, it had a huge spindle for its size, very robust, but...

    I think they are are overrated. Definitely considering what you pay for them.

    I haven’t turned 718 but I have turned 625 which is considerably kinder. As mentioned use a sharp tool, pick your speeds carefully, 718 will be pretty slow. Use a 45 degree tool, pre chamfer the...

    If on a road perhaps itís due to the oil coming off the cars? They probably do rust over then seal themselves off to the air like Corten steel does. Steel railway rails donít rust either when in use,...

    I think there is limited use. However for prototypes, one off odd jobs, or hobby work it could create a usefull feature with very little tooling. The alternatives are what? Broaching, rotary broach,...
