    implmex:

    When I started toying with this over a year ago, I looked into the 3R system but wrote it off for some reason. Time flies and I can't remember why now but the manual flipping of sides is...

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating the poor or looking for the Govt to keep prices artificially low. The way I see it is that the min wage deal will bring a certain % of the population out of...

  10. What's the better endmill for dynamic/HSM, square or corner rad?

    My covers haven't really turned black but they are discolored. When I wipe the joint where the wipers are the grime is black as can be. Must be it. Thanks.
