    The risk is one I first heard about in the 90's. I don't know what current medical thought is, but my basic premise is that virtually any dust you breathe in is potentially harmful, so if you can...

    Let us know how it works out for you. I still think a sensitive chuck is the way to go if you have one, but if you try the drill press be sure you can keep the wire at least partly in the hole at...

    Piffle. Bridgeports ARE small machines. Anything I can pick up and put in my pocket is small, and a BP qualifies. And I did mention using a sensitive chuck for the actual drive, did you not notice...

    Try to avoid breathing in airborne WD-40, it's not great for your lungs. But I use it for collet and toolholder cleaning when changing out tools, just make sure they're blown or wiped off well to...

    By all means take the paperwork seriously. It'll keep you warm if the building gets cold.

    Almost my thought too, but I would use a .005" or so piano wire (if such a thing exists, hard stainless otherwise) and a diamond paste to suite (~8 or 10 micron). Put a short (1") section of wire in...

    I have one too and agree it's a decent machine except for the vise. If I get some spare time I'm thinking of cobbling up something better.
