Re: [atlas_craftsman] Re: Draw bar for 10inch Atlas
You can tell from my original comments (I remembered the 9/5 fraction) that
they TRIED to teach it to me in the late '60s.
I think it actually stuck until they tried to cram the rest of the metric
system down our throat and the brain went into "OVERLOAD = REJECT" mode.

6061 blocks and some hot roll blocks. Worked better than I expected -
keep the tool sharp and a slow, constant feed.
Just picked up a real omniversal milling machine so I expect once that's
setup, my days of milling on the Atlas will be over. But it can be done
if that's all you've got (which was certainly my situation).
