    Kinda crud with his finishing, no stones used or mentioned other than a
    diamond lap that is not the best for a steel bit. lets ignore the mild
    steel vs HSS as Barry did.

    Dude, what kind of grinder are you using? I have a crappy little bench
    grinder about 1/2″ thick at best. I want the one you use! Thanks for your
    vids, they help alot…

    Thanks for Teaching us this

    Boring bar?

  20. YoeyYutch says:

    I’m learning the lathe right now. I want to make a tool for cutting a 30
    degree interior chamfer. The chamfer only has to be about .150 deep into a
    2.25 inch diameter aluminum tube so I’m pretty confident that I can do it.
    I can’t figure out why the person who is teaching me insists that we use
    such an elaborate setup for a simple cut. He just gets mad if I ask so I’m
    going to figure it out on my own. I think the tips in your video will help
    a lot. Thanks!

    the good work. Regards Tom Lipton

  22. Euan Taylor says:

  23. Barry Young says:

    That is a Cincinnati pedestal grinder from the 40′s, it has a 2″ wide wheel.
