Bought a USB joypad at a garage sale

True indeed. But..does he need that precision?
Good on you. And one has to spend a bit of money to get that result, or find work arounds to get "almost as good"
Indeed.
Odd..Ive a B300 KO Lee..and it took me a couple hours to learn to use it. Included a bunch of accessories like a Harig Air Glide endmill sharpener etc etc etc. 5c motor driven gizmo, indexing head etc etc.
Like Iggy..Ive sources that others here dont have. Mine cost me a service call. Hummm $186 traded for the grinder. I thought it was a marvelous trade.
Indeed. However its not aluminum either.
The prices I showed were all within $200 of a used Darex. Or did I miss something? And the prices were simply part of the ads for things Iggy should be looking for. Im sure he can beat Ebay prices by a magnitude.
It takes a surface grinder. Period. Iggy doesnt have one? Hell..he can find them for $50 or less. Cup wheel and voila..he has a $200 tool and cutter grinder that will do just hunky. Even a worn out surface grinder will work fine with one of the fixtures I cited. As long as that cup wheel spins....its good enough.
And a hell of a lot cheaper than a used aluminum Darex. Remember..I own a Darex. It worked ok. But..only "ok" and I didnt spend $1200 for it either.
But there are all sorts of Better options within his grasp. He is quite good at finding Stuff and at damned good prices. I showed him what was available and what to look for.
Indeed. However..I presented the info for Iggy..who has a lock on finding surplus machinery in his area. In fact...several of the cites I presented were intentionally from Chicago area.
I respect your opinion deeply. But I presented the info for Iggy, who has resources others here do not have.

If I do not have that precision, it will not cut as well, I thought.
I will keep looking patiently. Far and wide.

Grinding an endmill can be done "perfectly"..or "not half bad!" and the precision is vastly different when measured. Just a heads up....dull does not mean no precision and Precise does not necessarily mean sharp...
I have confidence in a Fellow Scounger of your caliber. Indeed!
