    I had a twenty foot tall stack of pallets to burn,so I stress relieved a bunch of things.

    Charcoal is my favorite for small things thou.

    Wierdscience,
    This is just brilliant.Looks pretty enough to go in the lounge as well.Thank you for the pictures.
    How did you stress relieve the base plate? Did you use heat or violence;ie hammering?
    thank you again for a really good post,
    bobby

    wierdscience, you sure are eating up the attention, are you not!. I looked real close at the photo, I do think I see that slot on a radius. I am proud of you, damn, were a talented lot!!!. Someday when I learn how to do the computor camera thing, I will submit some fine work myself. Bask in the glory as long as you can, my man!!! ---

    Jim,ahh..I understand,just a stupid camera angle,the slot IS on a radius Pretty shiney ahhh...what a life If it just had arms and said things like"oh,let me get you a drink and the channel changer"

    Ya,Joe,it represents 2 hours worth of slack time broken up in 120,000,000 millisecond intervals

    wierdscience - by radius I meant the length of the slot could be on a arc. That way if you moved the head out of alignment the tap would still end up in the slot, and it would look impressive. PS: IT IS BEAUTIFULL MAN, A TRUE WORK OF ART !!!! ---

    Darin, thats to pretty to use. I think the sales department has had some slack time. Customers must have stopped comming in every 5 seconds.

    Same guy you get yours from

    Snowman,no collet,I threaded the holder 3/8-24 then turned a chamfer to match the nut on the end.Drilled and reamed the hole to fit the .1406" Tap shank and milled a 7/64 slot through one side at the top(it's actually the rectangular thingy just over the nut)to fit the square drive on the tap.Then I just used a .015" slitting saw to put two splits through opposite sides,The result,stick the tap in and snug it with a wrench.

    Jrouche,no finish,the hot rolled was in the form of a 4x1/2" flatbar,it had a nice radius edge on it so I left it.The blue you see is just the ground finish on the top.I put a fine dress on the wheel and then borrowed the Dave Opincarne sharpening system to even the finish.(320 grit wet dry on float glass+a little WD for lube)

    Real nice looking and plenty useful too.

    Is it just the photo angle or is the base plate blued, blackened, browned or colored in any way.

    If so, yer process please? Always lookin for a new formula, ahhhh, chemicals.
