Default Re: Making metal parts

nice guy at the airport said he had 2 metal workin lathes, cmon over and use em.

well, we went and he was convinced that the little PIS on the floor was more accurate than the big on.

long story short, wasted Saturday on trying to make the little toy to make a little part.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - hate trying to make parts with crap

cleaned up the little thing and will return it and try to tell him how nice it worked. obviously he is a tool collector and not a user.
