    Yes I have noticed that many machinists won't make the required tool to adjust or maintain their machines, instead they grab the hammer and punch. #@%&*!!

    We need a steady rest library, with pics and dimensions.
    Identifying a mystery steady rest or finding a missing steady rest is a daunting and usually unfruitful task.

    For something like monkey bars, you should add a impact factor, multiplying that static load of 180lbs by 2-3 times.

    Hmmm... I think that is a very reasonable price.
    I would expect them to want stripped for the least cost and hassle.

    Apparently they install a grinding head on a planer to do bed grinding.
