    The short Allen hit me, because I had just swapped jaws on my vise. I had a 1" piece of knurled 1/2"aluminum rod, that I bored 1/2" deep to fit a 1" cut off of a 3/8" Allen. Epoxied it in and now I have a short leg L-Allen for leverage, and a very short straight Allen with a knurled knob. Thanks!!!

    I'm glad you liked it, Ken. I get a LOT of use out of that tool. Thanks for watching!

    Glad to put them in there. I know I've forgotten to do some though. I'm going to do a video on inch to metric conversions one of these days, but I've got a bunch of others that I need to get to first. Take care and thanks for watching!

    Just watched the milling machine locating video. Excellent as usual, and it's the first time I have seen someone demonstrate the use of the center finder (pointy end of some edge finders). I remember searching for it a while back, and there was a thread on PM about it. Half the posters insisted that it had no practical use, and the other half argued about how it should be used. Funny, they rarely argue over there

    If you're still looking for suggestions, I would like to see a face milling video. Choosing the right width cutter, best location to enter the cut, step-over, HSS vs. carbide, etc.

    My Dad always said, "If you want people to do things for you on the farm, you have to buy a machine they can sit on that does most of the work."

    Hi Pinstripe. Thanks for watching and for the suggestion. I'll add it to my list. Honestly, I've never given much thought to where I enter the cut. I always try to use a cutter that will go across the entire surface (for facemills and endmills alike). If I have to take multiple cuts across a face, I try to split it into even chunks and make sure I'm using conventional milling.
