Kind of neat. Could add an XY table and computer control. Been thinking of getting a plasma cutter.

It took 5 weeks for delivery, but other than having to run a tap into the threaded handle hole, it looks like a good deal. It even came with a carbide insert. And, has a smooth ball bearing movement.

Now to STOP doing home improvements and get back on the cars.

I got a box of end mills really cheap when buying a rotary table. Sprayed them with wd40 and they sat a few years. Started going through them this summer and some are dull, but it was a bargain in retrospect.

I like the drill and sanders. With a coupon you can usually get an HF angle grinder for $10.

Too lazy to start a new thread, but thought these were cool.

Never seen anyone drape a vice/table on a mill. Sure would make cleanup easier.

Until it wraps up in the spindle and drags your hand in!

Funny, I saw that and thought it would keep things clean too and then said I’d never do that. Plus, I always use oil, so that material would be a mess. I just vacuum now and then.

But, when I was a kid, I’ve seen guys blow off being told to cut their long hair. We had big rotating “cat heads” at head height. Some people like living dangerously.
