    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?

    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?

    Got a question, I am about to core some forearms and I have the 5/8 drill and 3/4 drill. Which would you use and why? The main reason I don't want to use the 5/8 is because I usually open up the joint collars a little and haven't got the best idea how to overcome this. Should I make my coring...

    I have used 5 minute epoxy before and waited until it setup some before pushing it on to prevent the expoxy from soaking in and leaving a dark line behind the ferrule. I have also heard people say 5 minute epoxy has no business being used for ferrules even though I have never had one pop using...
