    I'd take half of the hundy for this. I use it all the time as location of holes has always been spotty for me.
    The other half hundy can be used for beer while using the punch.

      A long time ago I bought one when Busy Bee Tools opened up a store here in the city. Anyways, like a maroon I didn't check it out for accuracy when I bought it; I just assumed it would be accurate or at least much better than what my eyeballing a prick punch on a pair of cross lines would be. It isn't. One line on the optical pilot it perfect, the other line is off by quite a bit. This can be verified by sighting them in on cross lines and then rotating the optical pilot 180o for each line. By the time I went to use them and noticed the problem, the store had closed from lack of business. So I'm stuck with it.

      Soba brand btw.

        The link goes to a Unistrut dealer who has a good writeup on Unistrut trolleys, channel, hangers, etc.
        Maybe you shouldn't post when you wake up from having been on a bender.

          I like the way this guy thinks lol

          I would have to say - with a 100 buck limit --- and especially if your only main piece of equipment is a mill - but not not exclusively,,, get a little R-8 5" three jaw chuck and go to town on stuff as if your mills a small lathe... cannot tell you how much I use it because half the other time it's also dismounted from it's R-8 drive and just the chuck mounted on the rotary table as pretty much a permanent fixture to the mills table... so damn handy...

            If I had a choice, which I do not, a .656" $50.00 carbide drill would have saved me 10 hours of machine time last week.
