    Yeah, wood was not an ideal choice, to say the least. Hopefully you'll be able to work around it. Have you been flipping the lap end for end as suggested by Milland?

    Got a photo of your setup? How are you making a hone with 500 grit diamonds? Do you really mean you made a lap? Need to get some better info before offering any advice.

    There are different types and causes of back pain. Some can start elsewhere, but the disc-related ones are vicious. For those who haven't had the experience, imagine raw nerve pain like the worst...

    I tried the CBD gummies, didn't seem to do anything for me. I am in about the same boat as Dualkit. I would like to have some active time rather than just lay down like a lump all the time. Ain't no...

    I'm assuming you're talking about a radius considerably outside the diameter of the table... Without simultaneous two axis movement you'd need to make up a large arm anchored elsewhere to hold the...

    I'd say you could trust it if you test it first. Run it up to 600+° after you braze it and then beat it around a good bit against some wood blocks and see if it holds. I might try a weld instead,...
