    TRUMP TARIFFS

    I did some research on the Tariffs Trump is putting on the Chinese- looks like it covers most all CNC and manual mills and lathes- Going up from around 4.7% to 25%, so I guess we can expect some...

    Re: Skyfire CNC owners?

    Yes, It's the biggest show and a huge venue. Well organized with buses to take you from building to building- a lifesaver for my old knees that logged 10 miles in 8 hours. Mori was amazing- they...

    If you are referring to Ronald Reagan, he was elected in 1980 and was largely responsible for the collapse of the Soviet Union, a fact that grates on the socialists of the world to this day. BTW, it...

    Re: Hold me, I screwed up.

    It's a tool not the Mona Lisa. But if you are losing sleep, then just mill it deeper and fit a patch- you could even use brass and call it a customizing job.

    This is probably your best option- will hold a lot of hex and round parts.

    Re: Smithy AutoMate

    As I suggested before, he should stay in his garage- and add to that, stop making videos. This could backfire (pun) bigtime on him and Smithy as well if they are using his video to sell machines.
