Agreed! If you only ever want to make folders, it might be ok. I bought a 24, in retrospect would have been ok with an 18.5.
Also, people seem to think the 240 heats up faster, which seems right since it has more watts of heating element. I have a 240 myself, and wouldn't want it to go any...
I respectfully disagree. It is directly on topic as I have had situations where a cobalt drill cut right through stuff that was eating up HSS drills.
P.s. nice handle, I wanted ocelot, but it was taken...
That's really cool.
I've been trying to think of a way to showcase the fact that I do metalworking at my job. One of these would work really well for that purpose.
Care to share the order in which you did things?
I would imagine that you would get more repeat customers if there was a greater variety of well executed tools.
My dad really liked the marking knives you did that were written up for a woodworking magazine... And that lead him to talking me into making him some of them and some other stuff as...
Just a thought:
If there's a hospital in town, oxygen is being delivered.
The people who make oxygen end up with liquid nitrogen as a byproduct.
Maybe you could either get some from the hospital or get the supplier to deliver when they deliver to the hospital?
To add to the comments... I bought mine because I didn't have the tooling. Even though I do now, I would buy again because it's put together nicely.
On the other hand, if you enjoy machining and can thrown one together for $150, why not? If/when you get a commercial machine, you'll know...
