Thanks MCC.
Today I hovered near the phone waiting for the call to tell me what pre-op clinic to go to....nada. I'll rock their boat tomorrow.

Instead of air arcing out the bad spot on the bucket, cause if I'm wearing ear plugs, I can't hear a ring, I did some lathe work.
I did some threading on the lathe on a 2.17" hole at 14TPI.
I don't do enough threading on the lathe to be cocky and casual, it's a white knuckle time for me.
This is for a hydraulic puller. Terry Lingle gave me some Enerpac cylinders years back, and I have made a puller plate for it years ago. But it was a bit small then and it's arms are really small now for what I seem to be doing. This thread came out really nice and that was encouraging. Now it goes on the mill.
