  • Don't miss out on this DEAL!!!

    Someone is actually bidding on this. I hope it isn't anyone on this BBS.

    Does not surprise me in the least. Auctions always attract brainless nincompoops. That is how they make their money. "sparklies"!

    Ooh, ooh - he has to pay freight & Handling charges too!

        Maybe we could put together a group buy and get a discount.

        We should offer a Christmas special of specially machined tree decorations at a good price and charge shipping and handling. Cleaning out our lathe for Christmas could be profitable.

          We should get a bunch of those and sell them too!


          Maybe we can sell long shiny drill swarf too!
          $5.00 packing charge for that!

              I have got to start cleaning out my basement and listing the stuff on EBAY before ALL of those types run out of money. Since my cat died, maybe I can sell the "used" cat litter as "oil dry" with an "earthy odor".

                        Let me see now, if I needed a Starret chart for tap drill sizes and I had no books that showed this info, what would I do.... Get in my car, drive to the library, get a copy made of the page out of a machining book? If the library in my small town had one. Or drive to the nearest machine supply store and ask for one? What is the cost for time, gas, the stuff you are going to buy on impulse while you are there? Or, is it wiser to go on eBay and have a nice original one sent direct to my door for $5.25? So tell me again, who is the brainless nincompoop here? Sounds like pretty strong criticism for a 6-of-one, half-dozen-of-another situation....

                          Back when I knew even less about machining than I do now I always just picked out a drill that 'looked about right'. If the tap then felt too tight I'd enlarge hole with next biggest drill I had or just wallow it out larger with the first drill. Tap drill chart?? ...Huh, What's a tap drill chart?
                          Crude. But it worked for me.
