        Thanks for all the kind words, folks. I appreciate them.

        As I've said before, the site is meant as a little karmic payback to all the
        friends, mentors and skilled amateurs who have helped me over the years.

        My conviction is that mathematics, particularly when augmented by the
        computational speed of the computer, can simplify shop work in a multitude of
        ways. A good example is my lathe change gear program. Trying all possible
        change gear combinations to find the one needed for a particular thread would
        be practically impossible if done by hand. With a computer program such an
        exercise is completely feasible.

        Even if one knows the math to solve the problem, having a program to perform
        the calculation is still very useful. Computer programs, once properly
        debugged, never forget the proper sequence of operations, never transpose
        digits, and never strike an errant key on the calculator - all things too
        easily done by a human computor.
        Regards, Marv

          Well, on that note.......

          Let me take this auspicious occasion to tell you how I made out with my "learning to thread" you all helped me with a few weeks ago! I cut my first 1/2 13tpi thread today that I was able to get a nut on that has a nice feel to it. Someone suggested trying the bull gear to slow things down and then I was able to hit the thread dial better. I'll post some pictures of the threads, the ones cut by me, when my website is back up

          I know return you to your regularly scheduled flap with millman !!

          Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

          It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                  Better late than never...

                  I agree that mklotz site is great, I found it by accident with a search. The funny thing I didn't "connect" it with its creator, until a few weeks ago, A little slow on the uptake.

                  BobWarfield site is the one of the most amazing "personal" sites I have found. I have spent hours, late at night gawking the pretty pictures.

                  Maybe if I am good (or win the lotto), I'll get a digi-camera and figure out how to post pics. Until then, I'll just machine half-naked (Evan as a role model)!
                  Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there no sweeter words than "I told you so."
