Default Re: Mill/Lathe

I used to do a lot of short run custom circuits. That tool would have been a help. Don't do much of that now as I have so my many other projects lined up(most of wich I'll never get too). Could you post the link for the drill bit supplier.

PS: I enjoy your postings.

I've also discovered that tiny tungsten carbide drill bits are easy to find at a cheap price from China as well. When I was still doing a lot of model making buying tiny drills at model shop prices was expensive. The Chinese are basically selling their drills for 1/10th the price and they're tungsten carbide and not HSS which is a major bonus
