In response to the gun drilling, the closest shop that has that capability to us is 250 miles south of us, as far as I know. And we are sometimes getting gun shy with shipping capabilities of getting things shipped and being in one piece unharmed. By the time we factor in the shipping/ delivery, and wait time of one to 4 weeks.

It is just another thing that is nice to know that if needed, we can do this in-house, when the shit hits the fan.

Finally finished the handle for my smaller mill. I have a job I need to do on the mill, so what better time than now to make it better.

My first attempt at the handle shaft failed a couple months ago when I first attempted it. It bent when I was doing the 1/2”-13 thread mount. I’m still getting used to the home lathe.

I managed to get it right tonight. Feels pretty good on the mill too. It has two ball bearings in it so the handle will turn easily.

That will make the mill a lot nicer to use
