    Not a problem, I allow myself up to three embarrassing situations per day if I'm in clothes or not! LOL

    I'm glad I mentioned the drills. I got 20 or so large MT3 drill bits (up to about 1.25) that came with my lathe and I was going to use them in the TS! Once I figured out how to sharpen them that is!

    "UP TO 1.25"? You mean "small" MT helical twist drills.

    Bad bizness Page Two: Because "we have seen this movie, before". And more than just the one time.

    A helical-twist-drill is about the worst POSSIBLE device for "opening up" a drilled hole "in successive stages". "Reamers" they were never. Geometry is as wrong as can be. They want to grab, chip, chatter, cut weird shapes.

    JF don't DO that. Not even with an anti-torque rod.

    Boring bars exist. "Balanced" boring bars exist. Trepanning exists.

    And off-lathe drilling exists.

    My Alzmetall is rated 3" in CI, a tad less in steel, but... that is for pushing holes straight through, under power, "at a combat speed", first hole, every hole - until yah run out of holes to make, 24 X 7 if need be. 7 HP and 4400 pounds.

    Even 3,000 lbs of Cazeneuve HBX-360-BC, 5 MT HS and TS also 7 HP, with "capstan" tailstock cannot come CLOSE to matching that AB5/S for making holes.

    The drillpress ain't much of a LATHE, neither, but "I'm good with that."



    Closest you will get to that level of drilling on YOUR lathe?

    The drill is in the spindle bore. Work, or angle-plate is on the carriage.

    Puny tailstock "need not apply" for that level of challenge.

    Might rig the TS to "hold your beer"?

    Only because we are rational-self-interested and lazy.

    USA ever runs out of capable worker-bees, and at least HALF-decent "managers" and planners?

    Also CUSTOMERS, if that better fits the circumstances of OTHER retirees?

    I might have to get off my vintage 1945 ASS and go back to work because the Social Security check isn't really paid off what I put-in "back in the day".

    It is paid out of contributions of present-day earnings of WORKING folks.

    In my own interest to see as many as possible of my fellow sufferers .. 'er "fellow CITIZENS".. do the best as can be done at WHATEVER they choose to do.

    Exact opposite of a "socalist", that is. I did say "whatever THEY choose to do!"

    Ummmh... welll.. there's this little PROBLEM when trying to tool-up Old Iron on a meagre budget...

    - Yah CAN use a draw BAR instead of a draw TUBE, y'see.

    Much the same as my going to ALL D1-3 nose-mount, nose CLOSER goods to keep the stingy-tiny 10EE spindle bore clear of a tube for max diameter stock...

    So there are 5C, Rubberflex, 2J, ER 40, ER 20, and Burnerd Multisize. All great stuff.

    That "little problem"?

    No NEED of a clear spindle bore!

    Time yah bought all this tooling s**t, yah can only afford about 3 inches of steel a year anyway!
