  • howdy!

    thought i'd say hello first,at the hot rod message board i post at you get torn a new one if you pop up in the middle of a thread without an intro.my name is george,i have an Atlas 10"x"36 with a milling attachement and a Delta benchtop drill press that i inherited from my father.i mostly use them to make parts and gizmos for my 1954 Oldsmobile or my '72 Sportster.i'd like to get a real vertical mill someday,but i can't justify the expense,or find enough room for it either,what with all the junk around here.don't worry though,i plan on looking through the archives for awhile before i start asking questions.if anyone else here is into "traditional" rods and customs chek out www.jalopyjournal.com (go to the h.a.m.b. section) i ought to mention though,anything made of "billet" that you didn't make yourself is met with outright hostility,don't say i didn't warn you!

        Yep, jump right in, and you will find rodders, old car enthusiasts motorcycle junkies and a whole lot of gearheads, but watch out for THRUD, he is a 400lb gorilla that eats meatloaf his sister makes, but he has a lot of smarts and is very helpful when you have a problem. welcome aboard...

              Seems to be no problem adding your two cents worth any time. Great bunch.
              I also have an Atlas 10 x 36 which I am learning on and rebuilding. Might share notes sometime.

                          ok,i've been reading up on here,and it looks like there's some people who really know what they're talking about,for which i am greatful.it seems i have some problems though;1.i have been using the wrong lube on my lathe.2.it doesn't matter because it's junk,and i should trade it in for (insert name of favorite machine here)3.some of you (you know who you are) are seriously disturbed individuals.4.i need more guns,but not because of reason #3.i'm thinking something that uses black powder.5.i am a rank amateur at this kind of thing,but that doesn't matter,mostly because of #2.

                            Hey, you say "disturbed individuals" like it's a bad thing. You people who use (insert your brand of lathe) are all alike!

                              My favourite Black Powder (pyrodex, actually) gun was my "Golfball Mortar" - diving for "ammo" at the golf coarse was a drag.
