    My understanding is that carbon steel pans are much easier to season, but the seasoning is less durable.

    Some of the old cast iron pans were very smooth, but still hold seasoning very well....

    The harbor freight tap/die sets are complete crap. I should know, I have one. They are okay for chasing a thread, but terrible for cutting a new thread.

    I would skip the hand taps and buy good...

    Depends on the bearing. A lot of back to back angular contact ballscrew support bearings are preloaded by the locknut. You torque it to spec and then lock it down with a setscrew.

    I'll have to try that out. I'd actually looked at Helical, but their website isn't great so I didn't see it. They don't list it under the Aluminum rougher section.

    Does anyone make a reduced shank corncob rougher? I've been using Maritool's 3/8 or YG-1 AluPower 1/2 reduced shank endmills, but I'd love something that would reduce forces and make more compact...

    Your cast/machine/HT/paint/ship timeline is way too aggressive in my opinion, especially since you're trying to make this inexpensive. You have 50 units at 220# each, or 11,000# of cast iron. This...

    As others pointed out, this looks like a cast part. Machining it will be very expensive. You have a few options to bring your cost down.

    1) if you don't care about the outer mold line, it should...

    I love samosas, pasties, etc. Really any time you take meat & other stuffing materials and wrap it in some kind of dough I'm happy. I think the big advantage of the pasty or piroshki is that the...

    Given that a lot of cooking during the middle ages was done in a coffin, which was an inedible dough container, it doesn't seem much of a stretch that multiple places figured it out independently.

    The Cornish variety don't have any cabbage in them. Piroshki have lots of cabbage varieties, what with being Russian. I'm guessing someone down there has made a vegemite pasty, though I think I'll...
