    Further update - I'm building a new CNC machine and still strongly desire to pick up where I
    left off here (along with maybe machining some DIY grain mill parts again).BIG snag: I'll be
    away from my s...

    Update - I'm in the middle of a pretty major move and won't have access to machining equipment
    for several months. I really want to move forward with this project, but it's gonna be a little
    while bef...

    I can make them out of just about any aluminum stock available at a reasonable price, but I

    An update, lest ye think I've forgotten or abandoned this...Initial testing with the new

    More info tomorrow. At a minimum, I'll post the max tap handle height based on available "Z

    I ordered some more hex bar and received a few more tools via UPS. Progress hasn't exactly been
    at a blistering speed, but I am engaged in making these tap handles.

    I got a couple of thread mills today. I ran a couple of simple tests tonight before bed. I can
    quickly machine 3/8-16 threads using a very simple CAM operation. No more hand tapping! I
    should post a v...
