    Small parcel arrived today...

    I'm not going to be in Philly for a while, so I thought I'd mail-order a coupld of small items,

    I got meself a steb centre, as I had one on my old lathe, and like it, a 60º live centre as mine has jammed up, and a diamond parting tool, to avoid the few times I have burned stuff when parting larger turnings.

    The old 60º live centre I had got some rust on it due to condensation in winter storage, and I dipped in Evaporust, which took the rust off nicely, but some got into the bearings I guess, and it jammed up on me. I'll take it apart later and see if I can fix it.

    Nice haul, Roger. All three of those items are must-haves in my book.

    It only takes a few items to make a job go from miserable to enjoyable....enjoy (as Jim would say)!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Thanks! I'll have to take a look if I'm up there some time when I have my truck with me. I usually take the train.
