    Was gonna say... Dude is surprised that the link didn't work 18 YEARS later?! :D

    Sounds like you probably can't get the SFM where it needs to be. 1018 will probably need a crazy high SFM using a cermet insert to achieve plasticization of the chip and/or prevent built-up edge....

    How about instead you post some shit that's actually worth reading and drop the rest. Nobody cares about your vendetta. Nobody. Take it to PMs if you're that desperate to write the guy a love letter,...

    I was going to say donie is like a broken record, but this is worse than a broken record. At least that's usually playing something pleasing to the ears.

    O. P. There probably isn't much new out...

    I don't know, dissimilar metals like that could cause even worse issues with temperature related warpage. At least when it's just one metal it can grow in a straight line. I'll stick with the iron....

    Sales tax on a used item is not supposed to be collected when it's person to person. But there are exceptions when the seller is in the business or practice of selling used items for profit. I forget...

    I think if it was a worthy idea it would have been done by the old line makers. Have you ever heard of an aluminum straight edge from one of these? Not me. This is a product of the "low cost import"...

    It looks very nice. Good shape too. If I didn't already have a Grind-All I would have been interested. I have a few Ral-Mike's items now, they are all pretty good quality.

    Yeah that's the built-up-edge Forrest was talking about in the other thread. The rest of your post is true to my experience also.

    Probably won't *as long as it's factory ground* but seeing a lead-in like that makes me think this was intended as a hand reamer or bridge reamer. Both of which usually have side clearance and lack a...

    How about now? I see at least two distinct bevels there. The first at about 45° and the second much more shallow. The shallow one will be doing all the cutting unless he's leaving WAY to much stock....

    20-30 SFM is more in the range of where you should be. Slower is better on this. Are you hand feeding the reamer? Your comment of "didn't feel good" leads me to believe so... Use the machine feed if...

    Hmm, having just taken a closer look at your drawing I got a better look at the reamer. Is that a sort of double and quite long lead-in there that I see? And you're saying that this reamer doesn't...

    That is the idea. However, as I noted earlier, keep that "5°" angle as minimal as you can. It doesn't need to be specifically 5°. Less is fine, definitely not more. Also be sure to check for burrs!...

    Did the lever rotate all the way back to where it was when you started? That's a new one on me. Maybe a sheared key inside? But then the table wouldn't freely rotate... Hmm. Worm slid off the end of...

    I like to scrape away the bulk of the rust first also, keeps from clogging the hone as my last step. I have always used an old putty knife type scraper. Seems to me a little softer scraper like this...

    I guess I'm returning the favor then. We should probably both drop it now.

    Probably not; it would have to be hanging out there pretty far. I agree that this looks like it was set up for grinding spindle I.D.s. - tapered or no.
