    LOL, you saw that. You have good taste in music Ox. Although, I like a lot of stuff that would probably make you cringe.
    I have very broad music taste.

    No pics sorry. I toss something up on IG now & then if a guy is super curious. But, I am somehow absolutely slammed right now.

    There is so much gray area in quoting. Honestly, I feel quoting is 100% an educated guess.
    I feel some things should just be figured in to the shop rate as overhead. Especially for a small shop like...

    So, I have two bushings for the I.D. holders for my lathe (2001 Okuma&Howa HL20) that fit perfectly.
