Guess we’ll see if he comes back. Makes me even more tempted to finish setting up the mill and making a pair of these just for the heck of it.

I’ve also realized why the tolerance/dimensioning didn’t seem to ‘click’. He’s using 3/8” bolts in 1/2” diameter holes. Little excessive on the clearance.

Maybe interest him in this tool.
When you call a surface grinder a lathe there is room to grow a crop of knowledge.

On a manual machine the easiest way to cut that groove is to stand the part upright and use a flycutter set to the correct radius. Pretty easy but a bit time-consuming. With a little trial and error you'd get it right...

No, I don't need that "lathe"

And strange as it may seem to us all....I think I have reached a plateau in my tool buying, I can't find much more that I need. I will take counseling for this.

Well, now, that was interesting reading.

So many people willing to help but getting biffed by attitude. Crazy. I used to see it all the time as a mechanic. One crazy example- this gal comes in and needs a fan belt. She then takes out a can of WD-40 and sprays the remaining belts (engine running) until the juice is flinging everywhere. I told her if that's how she treats fan belts, I'm not putting a (whichever) belt on it, because it's just going to get ruined. She explained how her ex-husband told her to use WD-40 on belts. I wonder if it was before or after he was an ex. You just gotta wonder.

If your pipe is measuring 1.66" Outer Diameter I think you probably bought 1¼" schedule pipe not 1½".

This reminds me of a favorite quote of mine (I have no idea whose it is):

"The problem with people today is that they listen to respond instead of listening to understand".
