Default My weekend Ebay purchases have started to arrive

Today I received the 2MT live centre $40.00 + delivery and the set of 3 Vix style bits $10.00 + delivery.

The live centre really looks the part but there is 0.004" run-out, no problem if I keep it for the wood lathe and my expensive SANVIK one that I bought about 25years ago for $120.00 and has less than 0.001" run-out, for the metal lathe.
On the other hand the set of VIX bits are beautifully made, far nicer than my so called genuine one which currently sells here for $15.00 EACH.

I wonder which items will arrive tomorrow, isn't it exciting!

Hi Harry

Very nice,, here's a small tip replace the bit in the small Vix with a 1/16" drill bit then you will be a happy camper..it takes a lathe made adapter to fit the 1/16" bit in place..

I have only two words in response to your obvious delight.

I think that I can do that Bob, I don't know why, but your word is good enough for me.

Hi Harry

Why,, the bit that comes with the small one is to big the norm like you I use the small hinges for boxes and the screws are very small in diam.if you use the bit in the small one it will pull out to much stock and the screw will strip out very easy but the tool is a great one to put the hole dead on center with the hole in the hinge but it's for not if the hole is to big, what I did is put a slug in the tool and drilled it out to hold the 1/16" drill bit just right, a little tricky but I have 5" long 1/16" drill bit (air craft drill bits) that made the job easy..

Hi Harry, congratulations on your recent purchases! I just purchased a used 100,000 BTU propane heater and 40 lb. propane tank for the shed.

With a heater that size Jack methinks that you're going to spend most of the winter in your shop, and be the envy of so many members who, because of lack of heating, seem to hibernate every winter.
