We do like our Pil. Kind of like Tim Horton's being an American owned franchise but our signature Canadian caffeinated swill, Molson Pil is made out east but we like it just the same here in Sask.


What does a guy buy for a first milling vise? Is there anything decent for under a couple hundred bucks?

Gerry said this vise would be okay for me.

Can anyone translate this description to Canadian for me?

This product is main attachments to precision millings grinders nc machines.
When active mouth of the tongs level migration, above it half sphere can have a vertical downward pressure, therefore the clamp work piece cannot surface the boat.
The mouth of the tongs opens the opening to be possible to act according to four firection changes.

Theres a few others with better chinglish and no swivel base for less money, like this one.
I have found a swivel base to be an excellent dust collector....saved me from vacuuming for years.

That Kijiji ad you sent me resulted in the loss of 500 bucks, Kevin
The guy is a 60 yr old Hindu had to close his business because of the NDP and is selling off his bits and pieces, not sure if he went broke but he was a bit beaten.
Got some Cat40 stuff, a Tapmatic and Cat40 adapter and Rohm drill chuck. Don't care for the chuck but I have a Albrecht clone to put on.

But I did get an important kernel of wisdom, too. He showed me how to take a busted milling cutter and turn it into a spade drill to drill out broken taps and hardened bolts.

Yes, when I get a roundtuit. Beats tossing out your favorite cutter.

Just fooling around.

Did this without any dial indicators because...I don't have any yet... But also it seems like you should be able to get results that are "good enough" for a lot of projects without. I mean I don't use a dial indicator and caliper for most of my fab work, right?

Yup, time spent making something more precise than it needs to be is just wasted, especially if you're trying to make (or save) money by doing it. It's nice to have the equipment and skills to make a precise part when you really need it but it's also good to know when "good enough" is, in fact, good enough.

I see you've already clued in to the use of roughing end mills--maybe Gerry gave you the idea. On lighter machines they make a big difference in how much you can cut and how fast you can cut it. I would advise using a bit of cutting oil, though; it will allow you to run a bit faster and your tools will last longer...
