    I was forced to participate after BCBS cancelled my good BSBS Advantage grandfathered plan 2 years ago (this was by design of the ACA, since no new members were allowed in any grandfathered plan). ...

    My (probably unwanted) $.02, a tension-arm lamp (one on each side) with an LED flood/spot bulb, is much more effective on the mill; those style lamps are a pain because you can't really reposition...

    Shops that clean and tidy are indeed like an alien environment to me... and I marvel at whatever aptitudes folks possess to achieve such witchcraft.

    Seems that many aren't too fond of the standard hardinge follow-rest; it isn't configured very well for aloris-type tool-blocks, and it won't fit without modification if you have a DRO scale. I have...

    Metcal, these use an RF power supply and curie temp tips, so do not rely on thermal load of the tip. The RF power supply supplies power as required to keep the tip at a *constant temp* by the...

    Website and service is unparalleled, always has been since I started using them 35 years ago. I think their website and internal operations are part of their "trade secret". Their website will even...

    That is funny, I would get flack if a proper "assortment" was not offered; for projects requiring more extensive bribes, bad coffee from those coffee-vending machines was sometimes also required....

    Regarding Windows 10, also beware that certain old programs may not run on it, while they do work on Windows 7 (a couple of examples: cadkey=nogo, corel=nogo, and old versions of Word are unstable). ...

    I always ask a surgeon what his hobbies are; if it's wine-tasting, stamp-collecting, opera, golfing, or similar, I pass. If it's woodworking, mechanics, machining, or similar, OK. Also, there are...

    If you can access the feature from the edge, you might be able to find a radius-cutter. Using either, most of the material could be removed with regular end mill(s), and then finished with the...

    Not to hijack the thread, but the smallest piece of debris or nick on the plate on faces of the dial assemblies will cause a problem. I also put a second thin "locknut" on those handle/dial nuts. I...
