    I use plastic fast food trays for that, super handy and non-scratch, great for tools during setup and repairs and for shallow drip trays. Quite rugged. Ebay has lots of choices.

    Same here, bought hundreds at an auction, use them for all sorts of uses. Just about indestructable. Mine are about 13 X 19 X 6" deep, sometimes I find myself wishing they were 7 or 8" deep.

    You are getting answers from folks thinking of setting up a job shop, your proposed use is way different. For flywheels and heads, you really do need dedicated flywheel and head machines, those 2...

    IMO he should have AT LEAST contacted Frank afterward and exhausted that line of help before going nuclear here on PM. I pray that a customer does not do that to me. I had an end user threaten to...

    I find it hard to imaging Iscar "dumping" mislabeled product into the open market. It's easier to believe they did get misprinted and the misprinted label made it all the way to packaging, then...

    I found this 2" Iscar tool to be just about perfect for on our Wells Index, so much so that it found a permanent home in the setup rack. The 2" Dia and 6 flutes is well matched to the rigidity and...

    I have backups. And the backups are backed up. My CMM and other PC driven devices also. I also display the parameters on screen and photograph the screens, and those photos are backed up.

    Yes, happened to me. I had a rotary positioner on the bench doing TIG, the ground was connected to the bench but wasn't perfectly clean. The 120V cord to the wall outlet started smoking. The outlet...

    No this is keyed in on a browser, because that's what the OP asked for. You can get much lower on swiped transactions.
