THIS MONTHS HELPFUL HINTS

Chattering reamers. Have you ever had a reamer cut a
pentagonal hole? The solution is to pack out the flutes
with lard next time, this has worked in the past.

Saving "tee" slots. If you are concerned about the
prospect of breaking out your tee slots while tightening
your part down. Here's a tip that works for me, simply
take a cold chisel (or any other blunt instrument), turn
your "tee" nut upside down, and hit the last thread over
with a hammer. Having done this, the stud cannot pass
right through the nut anymore, cannot bottom out in
the "tee" slot, and can, therefore, cause no inadvertent
damage to your table.

WE NEED YOUR HELPFUL HINTS!!!!!

Please e-mail your tip (at this time we cannot use drawings)

NO MONEY BUT YOU WILL GET TO SEE
YOUR NAME ON THE WEB. THANKS
