just for the fun of it.....


This is an Eclipse (English toolmaker for the uninitiated) 5x4x3 tool makers cube I picked up out of jig boring shop. being that it came out of a jig boring shop it was already a very accurately ground cube but i wanted to see how far i could take it. there's less than a tenth error parallel or square on any surface. want to take the challenge? I've got a few extras (oops, did i just try to sell something?)

Looks like a nice project for Forrest's Advanced Scraping class. That was 7" round Durabar when you started, right? ;-)

Yes some pictures of the setup would be helpful for noobs like myself!

Nice work! Now, if I'm to believe that you're McGyver, I expect that your setup consists of a blue ball point pen and a paper clip only.
