    Software of choice ?

    Can the experienced machinists please offer up some recs for 2D and 3D software ? Free, intuitive, and powerful would be excellent attributes - but I'm a bit more realistic. :whistle: I have downloaded the 2D software to which Barry linked, but have not installed it as of yet. I was hoping...

    Any ExtremeBeam owners care to chime in ?

    I attempted to contact EB for more info about their claims, and the e-mail was bounced back. One e-mail contact for a self-described multinational firm is a bit odd....but whatever. Until I can get someone on the horn, via the toll-free number, can anyone who has purchased their light(s)...

    I really like this torch. There's nothing wrong with it in stock form, but what couldn't be made better by upping the power four- to fivefold ? :) The plan is to yank out the guts, replace with billet aluminum, then cram in a TRIPLE XM-L U2 setup with a 4-5A Turbo DRY driver. Can you say 3000...

    New Lathe Suggestions - your help needed.

    Hi Guys, I have been learning on a 9x20 HF lathe, and it's quickly becoming "not enough machine." I have upgraded the toolpost to a QCTP, added the cross-slide 4-bolt plate, and done a few more upgrades recommended by the 9x20 websites - I simply need a bigger, stiffer machine. A quick...

    Megabucks car crash...eight Ferras, two Benzes, and a Bull.....

    Megabucks car crash...eight Ferras, two Benzes, and a Bull... Wow. A spirited club drive in Japan turns into automotive disaster. I saw a similar scene at the Tail of the Dragon one year, albeit with supercharged Crossfires rather than Italian exotics.... They should have used some of their...

    What a TOOL. Seriously, the 9x20 lathe is a real tool :)

    Having suffered from Lathe Envy for so long, I couldn't pass up the deal for a low-hour, barn-find 9x20 import lathe on which to cut my teeth (and hopefully some metal.) 12-15 hours of cleaning, dismantling, lubricating and reassembly yielded a decent machine under the dust and chips: The...
