    Can anyone on the Forum turn out a steel bushing 1" OD X 5/8" ID X 1/8 thick ? PM me please. It's for a PWD tooling project.

    Cancel the request please. Billy’s Red Necked his way out of another one
    . All it took was a flat washer or 2 for a 7/16 OD bolt, a drill with a uni-bit and a vise. The boys smarter than Jethro Bobine.

    What had happened was Billy didn’t have a disc sander but he does now. Was going to bushing up an old chop saw abrasive blade and stick a 3M sticky disc on it then spindle it onto his table saw but he pooed that idea and the next one as well. He finally took a wore out table saw blade outlined a sanding disc circle. The plasma cutter made quick work of it. Works like a charm especially when using the cross cut block to angle sand the nose on his next build. The boys a genius !! Lol
