    Monster HF Tool

    Well got my HF tool from Randy today. Problem is I am a little under the weather so won't get to use it for a day or two. Got the creeping crude from a couple of co-workers who think it is ok to come to work sick. I bought it for the Nova DVR. Of course that didn't stop me from setting it up. All I can say is Wow that thing is smooth. Didn't put the laser on yet. I will report at a later date.

    Congrats Bernie. Looks like you'll be putting out some HFs little bit easier now. Do make sure you show it with curlies all over it.

    You're gonna like that rig, Bernie. Congrats! As I've used mine more and more, I'm getting a better feel for it. I've found that if I'm having problems with the cut (chatter, for example), I can move the base a little to change the angles in the articulating arm and get a different reaction out of the cutting tool. Like I said, you're gonna like it.

    However long it took Randy to make it, this is a tool worth the wait, IMHO.

    Thanks for the comments. This is one cool machine.

    Clark I ordered mine on 01/28/2008 and received it today. Like Vaughn said it is well worth the wait. If I wasn't under the weather I would be out there right now.

    that's great news bernie...i used vaughn's, among others, reviews of randy's tools on this forum as the basis of choosing my hollowing system. i was just interested in the wait and your report is encouraging. my system has been on order for a short time and am looking forward to being able to hollow something deeper than 3-4".
