Default Frank The Chinaman

Welp, today I broke down and bought a dozen QCTP AXA Tool holder blocks, from Frank the Chinaman, AKA, Frank at CDCO. He had never let me down before, I’m sure he won’t now.

I made a mistake to actually talk to Frank on the phone, by time I was done, even I was confused on what I exactly ordered. He seems like nice guy, wanting to help, but I found the website is the best way to do business.

So how many tool holders do you have now?

With various lathe cutting tools, threading, cut-off, grooving, boring and a few other misc tools, were in the 90-100 range.

You would have thunk.....That the Gnap (as in GREAT !) would have started
a breeding program long ago, thereby cutting out the manuf, as well as the middle man (AKA "Frank")
