Ditch the tenacity 5 for easy flow especially on small jobs. Flux will go glassy and then seem to disappear that’s the point when it all happens.

sorry Richard but the 1.2 dimension does not appear on my original drawing. the mix of dims are there to enable people to imagine the sizes as some people think in imperial and some in metric. It looks like you have made a good job of it and I hope it gives you pleasure using it. Try putting your screws in with tweezers.

Thread: Four facet drill grinding.
26/04/2021 17:14:27

DAG Brown has done articles in the past but there is one in ME Jan/Feb 1995 by Roland Gyllander from Sweden. i have made his jig but found it susceptible to variable hand pressure so have adapted it to fit directly on the T and C table removing the variable hand pressure problem. I have made a start on a article for MEW about the adaption but not finished yet! and sometimes think people have had enough of four facet articles. if interested drop me a PM
