    I think this is more the root of the issue than anything. I grew up, as my wife calls it, "poor". I never considered myself poor. I had more than others, never went hungry, and always had a roof over...

    I understand the lead itself, I’m trying to understand the cutter that is specified for cutting that lead. Since it is a basic helix, not a gear, any cutter can do the required work, why or...

    I would have been ecstatic to get a 2k vertical with low lead and gears for $3600. Like jumping out of my skin grinning. And another $600 for the change gears.

    A unique B&S Dividing Head

    For years I’ve had a Brown and Sharpe that I’ve primarily used for regular dividing head work. Rarely have I done any helical or spiral indexing. And in all reality, as I think on it, I primarily use...
