Anybody know the ENCO FREE SHIPPING CODE for February?
- I spoke with ENCO not long ago and they were accepting WEBNRJN6. But now I'm pretty sure that was in late January.I have two of their Hot Deals sale flyers on hand. Both are current. Does the FREE SHIPPING CODE appear in these somewhere?Duh,Tom----- Original Message -----From: Jerry KimberlinSent: Thursday, February 09, 2006 10:44 PMSubject: Re: [mill_drill] Re: What attaches an EXPANDING ARBOR to your mill table?Tom Burgess wrote:

5C collets are externally threaded at the rear for a drawbar
and are also threaded internally for an adjustable collet
stop so you can control the depth that a part will go into
the collet. That feature is quite handy too, especially
when making many parts of the same design.

I don't know since I don't have the spin indexer. I know
that the one I mentioned does quite well and you can bolt it
down so that the collet is horizontal or vertical. It is
not a very versatile piece of equipment though, and the spin
indexer would be more versatile, I think, since it can also
rotate to different positions. If it will go both
horizontal and vertical it will be very versatile and second
only to an indexing head.

I agree, you only need to decide on the best bang for the
buck. Either way, both tool holders will fulfill a need
eventually. Get the best one now, which will be the most
versatile - probably the spin indexer if you can get
together the $$ without hurting the budget too much.

Better to not be in a hurry to spend good money. I hope you
have the Enco free shipping code for February - if not, wait
until someone posts it. I don't have it yet or I'd mention it.
