    It is a Mitsubishi Celos control, so I bet you're right, and apparently you've got a better program example than I do. I'll try that next time and see if it works. Thanks for the info.

    I hadn't thought about the holder being that thin causing problems with the ring in tension. Do you think the ring could go to a smaller OD and maybe fix that? Or am I just doomed no matter what I...

    If you can run it in oil on a different machine, then I'd say a form tap would be your best bet. Depth shouldn't be much of a problem with one of those, since it's not creating a chip that could...

    You could look into wix.com

    It's pretty straight forward and easy to get a simple site up and running. Not too terribly expensive either.

    Hope this helps.

    I saw the $30 one, but the guy has no feedback and it's a download and a key, which all made me kind of nervous.

    I'll look into everything else though.
