Re: Center Drill Tip Broken Off In Hole

Ah Ha, now I see it. :D Clever Idea. Works when there is not enough room to use a grooving tool around it. :wink:

Re: Center Drill Tip Broken Off In Hole

When that happened to me I had enough room around the broken tip to use a small grooving tool to remove material around the tip and pick it out.

Re: Speaker selection switch, and more than you wanted to know!

My dad used to love to demonstrate his outfit by playing Gus Farney(sp) at the Mighty Wurlitzer. I'm surprised the house never...
