    Ok- thanks.
    The reason I ask is I am setting up for hinges (see other thread), and a I can pick up a Grass hinge boring machine with line drilling head for a good price.

  3. Is anyone using the Grass Euro hinges?

    I am looking into hinges and wondering about which brand is popular.
    Blum vs Grass?

    Chevy vs Ford comparison or is there a substantial difference between these two?

    And what happens if you spend two days building the setup and it doesn’t work?

    If you want to sell here maybe try this-

    Break the items up into a manageable number of lots.
    List the higher value items singly.
    For the rest of it group similar items into several per lot.

    I read one time that a solar panel with no regulator is a good setup for burning off sulfates from plates.
    (and they get to drop to the base so they can short out those plates....)

    I like it.
    I did a quick tear down and clean up and it is working great.
    It really is a Speed-Vise.
    It’s super fast and screws down as tight as one wants.
