Making Chips is fun
I got back to making chips the other evening. Adding the holes in the exact spot needed this time.
|Finding the edge|
|1D10T check: 0.625" = 5/8" = Go|
Mr. Pete stacked them and did them together. I did NOT do it that way, so there will be some error. I checked the lengths, and they need to be adjusted, so that'll happen post-holes. heh..
I found some no name parallels at a pawn shop a few years back. 10 bucks as I recall, and the money jumped out of my pocket and met my hand in midair.
|Very inexpensive but good|
|Sizing the hole accurately|
Got part one clamped down, and both holes run through. I found a set of reamers some time back, barely used. I have a lot more, but they are all odd sizes, that I haven't cataloged very well. Another project for a rainy day.
After getting the holes in, time for deburring. I found a great set of deburring cutters on the auction site we all know about, and they work very well. I remember them being extremely cheap. Another lucky hog moment on 'bay.

Deals can be had if you are patient. I have always paid more than I wanted if I get impatient. Make your list, keep it close and save some searches so you get notified if something comes up. And you won't wind up with 5 of the same thing because you forgot if you already had 4...
Now where is that Acme tap?
