    On my Lagun and bed mill I just pulled the units out and installed them so the handles are in the back of the quill casting. Gravity is on my side now and the handle is out of my way.

    Wow, Stoneaxe said a mouthful in the previous post. Going for that last 10% reduction is causing so much manufacturing to go to China and India with almost zero pollution controls. The permanent...

    The friend that told me about this is long since dead. The example he showed me was an exhaust manifold "gasket" for a military radial engine. He had run it for years and had an optimized process....

    Hard to even imagine the horror of being shot at, your husband being beaten to death, and your 11 year old being hauled off by the animals. The comment about full auto was I think about the perps...
