    I wish I understood that better. My friend has his 02 SOT and 07 FFL, but no machine ability. I have neither status but the machine I do have.

    I'd like to dabble, but just too fearful and don't...

    If you want seamless, they take a hot rod and shove a long mandrel down it. Pretty neat process, videos are on YT.

    Reduced speed to 65sfm, feed to .004"ipr and the drill lived through #21 with some touching up with a stone.

    No joke. You can get a decent PLC from automation direct cheap enough that it's the clear winner.

    Hell, even an arduino would probably fit this application.

    ISO - Drill Grinder, preferably Sterling

    Looking for a drill grinder, Sterling or similar, in good, working shape.

    Would prefer it to be within 6-8hrs of OKC, but can travel for the right piece.

    Would like to stay under $1000.

    I'm the opposite. I think the power feed's smooth, steady pressure provides a better cutting environment than my shaky hands.

    If overhead lift is an option, even 20k isn't an issue for a heavy wrecker to pick and carry. Downside is they're not great in close quarters and OH lift does demand extra headroom.

    I must be nose blind, I can very rarely smell my 690. It also doesn't foam, but if a nozzle is improperly aimed it will mist.

    Mixed with OKC tap water.
