Re: What tools should I have?

I've been gradually assembling a 'set' of mic's to cover from 1" to the throw of my lathe (15"). Likewise, I've acquired a set of small hole gauges, telescoping gauges and internal mics up to about 6" (if memory serves...) A quality DI (Browne and Sharpe, per Harold); a planer gage; a set of paralle...

A local grocery was selling rib roasts for $5/pound. There was no way to NOT buy one.
No kidding!

We had a yummy lamb shank, here!

With a little tender loving care, I think that roast could be made well again.
LOL!

Re: Table Is stuck

Also, when you say the table is stuck, do you mean that the wheel won't turn? Or the wheel turns freely, but the table doesn't move?
