How about post #7.
The post by Harold? I don't see anything disrespectful about it.
To make this statement, "you're cruising for a bruising. ", to a Veteran is okay?

No one was asking for unbridled political dialogue, just respect where respect is due.

Re: Sirens

I think I know what you're talking about, and if I'm right, you're cruising for a bruising. I just can't help but think that you're discussing a political issue, something that is going to get you banned from the board if you persist. If I am wrong, please accept my apology.

Kind of sad. The guy had a lot of knowledge, shared it with many, had an awful lot on his plate and when he passed, not one word of reaching out to help the survivors. Must be two, three, dozen guys living within an hours drive or so of his homestead. Not even a pass the hat collection for expenses.

TechTony really needs to buy or borrow a book on basic machining practices. Should be able to find something in your local library before you hurt yourself or damage your machine.
