Does it have to be 3mm, they do 1/8" which would fit if you knock up a quick stepped bush

Yes I can get away with a 1/8" cutter, the small difference in size wont be a problem. Just ordered one plus some of the spiral flute taps.

Thanks Jason

Ron, you could get another 1.5mm wide blade same as you have and gang them together for your 3mm cut.

Emgee, that had crossed my mind but didnt know if it would work having no experience of it. However I have ordered the 1/8" as 7 thou difference wont be an issue on the spring mounts.

Thanks anyway.

Jason, I have just read your latest Milling for Beginners and I have to say it is excellent you couldn't have a clearer or more understandable "how to do" than that.

I hope.beginners are reading the guides I for one have picked up such a lot from them.

Well done Sir, great stuff.

Morning Jason,

I dont know how long the beginners mill and lathe series have to run, I,m guessing not that many now. Just a thought but having made myself your vice stop I wondered if there is any other mill tooling/fittings that you have made which would be useful for the beginner. There may not be any others but it if there are it would be good to see them, its just an idea.

Ron

Thank's Ron, There will be just one more which I have most of the content for but will see if I can think of anything else to add. Having said that Neil has asked for the occasional article aimed more at the beginner that will cover a broader spectrum than just milling for which I'm open to suggestions.

Best get your name down on the list for a good price on a lightly used SX2.7wink
