      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Thanks for the replies. I work at a government facility for the DOE so safety is always at the forefront so it's just second nature after working safely for over 20 years. Right now I'm looking at some Sherline machines but I've also got Micro Mark in the back of my mind.

    Thanks again.

    mills & lathes.....
    To those who own mills & lathes, I'd like to pick your brain. I'll be making my last house payment in exactly one year & will be wanting to buy hobby mill & lathe. What machines would you recommend & what attachments should I get? Where could I order my stock? Could these be used in my hobby room or would I need to set them up some place else? I have a credenza that is against the back wall of my hobby room that they could set on. Also, are there any books or publications that I could get that would help me get an idea of what I would be doing on these machines?

    Thanks in advance for the information.
