    The other one had a similar shipping cost, at $12.20.

    I wouldn't ordinarily harsh someone's "for sale" ad, but this sized plate from: Cast Aluminum Tool & Jig Plate (ATP 5) | Midwest Steel & Aluminum
    is under $90ea.

    So whatever the Ebay fantasy, it...

    I'd still go with taps. Hacksaw blades don't remain in the cut if they break, and dulling makes them easier to remove.

    Going back to my previous comment, even if the taps are from a quality...

    Sorry, no time to talk. I'm off to buy my half-blind friend a 4K TV.

    Exactly! I've read the responses here with some amusement, as I bet that many of us have hearing loss such that the best audio equipment is somewhat pointless.

    That's roughly what I'm using, just not as posh. I keep a fair amount of weight on the cart to ensure no tipping over, something you definitely want to pay attention to when lifting ~180lbs.
  10. Yes, I'm doing this on a somewhat similar combo...

    Yes, I'm doing this on a somewhat similar combo to what you have. Both older, but a VF-5 and HRT210 RT.

    In my case, I'm using a small swivel crane that I've mounted to a heavy-duty rolling cart,...

    Nah, they'll just go for the one that's ~$10 cheaper: 2" PRECISION GRINDING TOOLMAKER SCREWLESS VISE | eBay

    .0002" for under $30? Is that a pig I see flying by??

    The guy likes a nice chamfer on his hexalobes, not going to get that with a rotary broach unless you figure out a way to time it.

    He'd have to find someone with a pretty big oven to do the job, and we're back to excessive costs. Unfortunately he's going to have to trade his time for dollars, or just hand the customer a paint...

    You can find anodize companies that specialize in large parts through Google, but don't bother - you've answered your question in the last line. It'll be much more than a few hundred for a job that...

    At $3K-plus I hope they come with a lifetime supply of wipes. And Amazon buyers (admittedly not the last word on audio reviews) don't have universally good things to say: Amazon.com: STAX SR-009...

    I'd try sandblasting, using lower air pressure and finer grit to start. Use a fan to blow debris away, and good lights to allow you to track removal and not cut into the fiberglass too much.

    I'd agree with you, except that it seems to hit an "exact" spot each time it flakes, which to me points to damage to the scale at that section such that the reader gets confused. But it can't hurt...
