I’ve seen alot of Rodger Smith’s videos but not this one. I can see why those Levin gear collets are so expensive. They were cutting about five at the time I think. I’d like to try that sometime. Heck, there are so many things that I still want/need – it gets depressing, but I just keep pluggin’ along anyway.

What I’m looking at now is a rotary table for my drill/mill. Based upon your recommendation, I looking at something like this one.

With the 3 jaw attachement, it’s probably too tall for my machine. Also, the gear ratio seems a little high, but I could be wrong about that. I can’t find anything un $400.00 that has all of the attachements and isn’t junk.

The other thing I want to get into is building wooden molds and casting with aluminum. I could build the furnace, but buying a decent mulling machine is going to cost alot I think.

Pie in the sky at the moment I think… ;)
