      Pretty sure safety went out the window when he started drinking the coolant. Can't see another reason to sodomize half of two budget anvils away into a bookend.

    A project I can relate too, havent watched it yet. My rail has held up well as an anvil, paperweight and occasional bottle opener.

    I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. FWIW, I tried milling a bit of rail to make a die for bending heavy sheet metal. (no CNC, though). I went through a lot of that before realizing I was doomed. It does work well as an anvil, though.

    You talk about an organizational concept that starts with an L. Can you spell it please? Is it lee? Ley? Le? I like that there is a good word for this concept but can't find a dictionary definition that includes it. I don't need there to be a dictionary definition but I'm curious how it is spelled. If you know the etymology I'd be interested in that too.

    You'd have done real art if you'd have tied it to the truck hitch with a 10ft chain and dragged it down the road for an hour, drinking some PBRs. It just warms my heart to see others go through the same excitement I had 30+yrs ago when I was given my first section of Rail. My brain was so happy thinking of all the stuff I was gonna create with it and not knowing how much sh*t I was gonna destroy plus a whole weekend I wasted just trying to slice it in half, once!! xD

    Years ago KiwiRail (New Zealands rail network owner) asked us to cut some rail in half. The twist was that the cut had to be down some ‘welded’ joints in the rail, which were insanely hard. I can’t remember the exact cost but I think we had to pay a machinist $3500 to cut two joints in half, just so kiwi rail could show the difference between two weld methods.

    So unless I cut in the softest part of my rail, or the rail is made completely different from your's, my bandsaw blad worked just fine after cutting into it.

    My gravestone will read "it never fucking ends" every single thing I've ever done in my life brought more problems than solutions. Could work on my truck, change the spark plugs and start it up only for it to blow a radiator hose. When I wanted to try vr I bought a vr headset, the day it arrived my game console died. Bought a new car with almost no miles on it only for a cam timing tensioner to go bad the next day. Draw a picture on the computer get almost or the end and delete the whole thing. It never ever ends.

    Now my comment has nothing to do with The video . I don’t know where to go to request things to review. You are funnier than hell. I don’t think most people catch timer if they do it’s probably minutes late. Anyway my request would be for you to do a tour review on the new flex tools. They just did a video and they painted them against painted white mill fuckee tools and talk about nonsensors and all this bullshit. Again, relax, trolls I don’t know the due process for video request . I just saw the most recent video maybe the review will be seeing who knows. Just doing what I know how to do you know pissing with the cock I got. Flex tools lifetime warranty on the tour on the charger on the battery lifetime warranty . The 1/2 impact has anti-vibration technology for her pleasure. Please flex tools from Blowes

    I wonder if as your machining through some forged bits you release internal stresses, making the part move enough to fudge the cutter out of whack and lose its teeth. That and I suspect as the cutting tooth goes in and out of hard and soft bits, it makes the machine torque flutter and make the spindle experience weird accelerations
