    Inside English vs Outside English

    Newsflash: the conversation you are having with yourself is not about inside vs outside english. Cornerman freddie has described the phenomenon clearly, concisely, and correctly. FWIW - ask any C- or better 3C player, we use inside that is running all the time. Consider the opening break...

    Quick and dirty CNC

    FWIW - I was aware of Todd's machine. Fine it is for profiling butts or shafts in one direction but not practical to expand into a fully functional CNC. The BB6 at this point seems to be a CNC lathe DIY kit with few instructions and even less "support". Ya' think maybe he and the XZERO guy...
