      Rick,
      Even though you've labeled your articles as for "Beginners" and I have now owned and used my Lathe and Mill for over 3 years, I still consider myself a beginner. 20 years ago I worked for a company that made injection moulded medical parts. They also had a large mould shop on site and employed about 30 machinist. These guys were very experienced in their work. Comparing what I know now with what these guys knew back then, I am a beginner.

      I've been doing software development for over 25 years now and still enjoy it. Do I know everything about software, not at all. There are always new tricks and shortcuts to learn and many of them I've learned from beginners.

      Keep up the good work, I've enjoyed all of your articles.

      Denis

      BTW
      Your article on your "Screw cutting jig" is not on your site.

        Well, I learned something today. I have a chart on the shop wall from Industrial Pipe & Steel, and it has the typical decimal/fractional/metric/letter drill/wire drill conversions. Its tap and clearance drill chart lists #10 as the clearance drill size for #10 machine screws. I've been using this chart for years.

        I was going to challenge your use of a #9 clearance drill, but when I called up tap tables on the web, they all definitely appear to call for a #9 drill. That said, I haven't had any problems using #10 clearance drills.

        Regards,
        Ed
