Re: Long reach bits

Hey Ken

Tailmaker----

Thanks for the quick response. These bits are exactly what I was looking for.
I have 8 inches of Z travel so not a problem on length, also I'm very conservative
on my speeds and feeds, should work well.
THANKS

Long reach bits

I know this question has been asked numerous times and answered.
I have a project I'm working on, design phase is done. I need a up cut
endmill with a 2 inch cutting length. I will be using on walnut and hard

on the web.

Re: beer holder

Great plan on the beer holder. I have a son in law that brews beer
as a hobby. I think this would make a great gift for him.

Really nice job on the Special Forces Insignia.
Being a veteran it is really nice to be recognized for your service.
I'm sure he was very happy to have a symbol of the unit he
served with.

Re: Race Horse Game

I played on one that was similar to yours.
It was played with dice to advance the horses.
It also was played with bets between dice rolls and
of course refreshments at the same time.
Very fun game from what I can remember ! !

Yours is a lot nicer great job.

Re: Portland Head Light, Maine

I have to agree the white grain of the pine looks like clouds and weather
moving in on the water and the yellow gives the impression the sun is
shining through the clouds really nice carve.
