  • Doug Ripka HSM May/June

    In readers forum Doug Ripka gave info on MLA-8 casting kit from Metal Lathe Accessories but did not give info on Company. I have tried my browser and have not found it. Any one have the company info?

      I can't recomened the kits offered by this outfit to highly, the castings machine like 12l14, great with answering questions to, I am dumber than george bush jr, and I can usually follow them.

      Currently I am working on 5-c collet chuck kit from them, and hava a boring head kit for the winter time. I want to try the die filer kit, die filers are rare in western Canada.

        The web link is great, thanks Mike Bur****!

        I don't own any of Metal Lathe Accessories products, but I have seen them at shows. They look like a quality product, as I retool my shop, I am planing to purchase a few castings at Cabin Fever in '07. I may actually get them into operation by the end of decade.
        Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there no sweeter words than "I told you so."

          I've done the T-slot cross slide. The casting was great. It machined very well, with plenty of allowance.

          I'd have no hesitation about getting any of Andy's kits.
