Glad you had a good time. What auto did Jay bring out this year?

Thanks for this, Alex. I'm a CT native and would be interested in exchanging war stories with you when I'm back east. I'm from pretty close by in Norwalk where my family still lives.

Hey Herm: Those X-Grooves look pretty clean. Are they done on a Waterbury or similar machine or do you use another of your home-spun jigs?

Re: Drive shaft bushing spot facer, diameter.

If I'd been smart enough to turn the cutter wheel over, I would have seen this marking. Definitely a few thou under, though.

Re: Drive shaft bushing spot facer, diameter.

I've got the K.R. Wilson W17 Facer. It checks out at 1.5285. As the others have said, not too great on brass. I had mine sharpened and it still is weak for brass. Cuts the babbitt like butter, though!
