  1. Looking good Ken. Iโ€™m watching.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. Saw RUSH live in Pittsburgh on theyโ€™re โ€œRoll The Bonesโ€ tour. RIP Neil. ๐Ÿ˜”
  3. 88 Ford ranger shortbed that someone had swapped in a Chevy 350 with a Hurst shift kit, ford 9 inch rear and fender well headers. They had taken out the brake booster to make room for the engine, which left only drum brakes. Went like stink in a straight line, but braking, not so much!! I owned it for about 2 weeks and sold it. That thing was FAST, but to scary for my taste.
  4. Iโ€™ve done just that. It works great!๐Ÿ˜Ž
  5. Iโ€™m looking for the Revell stock 48 Ford coupe kit. Open is fine. Missing police car bits is fine. Let me know what your looking for. Thanks guys and gals.
  6. Iโ€™d be in for 1 or 2. I love old buses. ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Outstanding build Hermann!! I have been following your build thread from the beginning. Love the detail work. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  8. Kit has been traded. Thanks . Mods, please remove.
  9. Up for trade is a factory sealed Pittman Willy coupe. I'm looking for the amt 69 Olds 442 w-30 kit or the Hurst olds kit. Open if fine, but must be unstarted.Please pm any offers. Thanks.
  10. Very true. Your righ. You might be able to come up with some sort of clamp system to hold an insert / tool holder, but you could forget about any kind of accuracy. With no way of touching off and no cross feed. I wouldn't try it. I've tried some pretty sketchy stuff on my lathe at work, and still have all my fingers.
  11. For harder metals, yes. That is too fast, but for aluminum, you have to use higher speeds to get a smoother finish. Aluminum doesn't "cut" like regular metals. It's an alloy. It has to be sliced. Try using a regular cutting insert to machine aluminum, and it will look horrible when your done.
