    Cut a house cue

    Dang, got asked to cut a house cue, had a ring middle way. I told the owner it likely had a bolt there, it did. I cut it fine. I drilled it and bored it, almost done and boring bar sent last 1/16 threw the side of the butt. What did I do wrong? I ran a 1/4 end mill, then the boring bar.

    Motor Controller

    My motor controller died on my mid america lathe. I bought another resistor and replaced the bad one and it burnt back out again. I talked to Todd and he told me what a new one costs. My question, my old one did last 9 years, but is there something better I should buy or just get another like I had?

    Sneaky Shaft too white

    Guys help me out, I have a shaft nearly finished on an old conversion sneaky, one I took the finish off of and am ready to apply finish to the shaft and the butt. The problem I am seeing is the shaft is way too white for it to look good to me. Is there a way to yellow the maple shaft some, maybe...

    3/4" gundrill F/S

    I told a couple people I would post pics of how I made a couple of these bits work for my taig. I cut pieces off an old brass punch, that's why it looks a little rough. I made these pieces on my large bore headstock. With the threaded air fitting I don't have to worry about epoxy.

    Tired of Masking

    I got tired of trying to mask the bottom of the shaft and the top of the butt when shooting auto clear so I made these little delrin spacers on the last 5 that I cleared and they worked great. Just wondering if anyone else does anything like this?
