    Thumbs up victor machine

    I have posted this before BUT I feel exceptional service deserves the complement.
    I ordered from victornet.com the other day. they are VERY helpful. they were able to answer my questions clearly and even look up some info for me to make sure I got the part I needed. WOW . this is a small business and I feel it is important to support small companies so I will buy form them again for sure!!
    they have EVERYTHING I could need for my shop!! their prices are some of the best any ware. they offer choices of USA made parts and quality import parts. BOTH clearly labeled so you can decide exactly what you want to spend more for and what may be plenty good enough. I LIKE choices , I like honest representations of the parts. sometimes I like to save a few bucks and buy a tool from India and sometimes I like to spend a bit more and get the better quality. this is NOT like some of the discount places ware everything is import. I like that.
    Victornet.com Is MY tooling supply and I know If you try them they will be your tooling supply too.
    thanks for reading HB

    Cool! As a machinist what kind of stuff can a do with a drill press on a small scale HB?

    I mean if I wanted to get a multiple axis vise and do a little light milling what would I be able to do? Say I wanted to get a few end mills or reamers to enlarge a hole or maybe take a little material off instead of using a dremel.

    I think I can get 3000 rpm's out of my drill press and teh lowest is 800 or so? Can I do anything with that?

    Winn good to hear I am not the only one that found them.
    Sag it is hard to say from ware I am sitting, I can not even see it. is this the drill you rebuilt? how heavy are the spindel bearings? I would feel prety comfortable saying you should be able to do rails with it even without seeing it. you will have to get a "feel" for it , as to what is stressing your machine and what is not. small cuts on sheet stock beofre hardening should be fine.
    I do have a $49 drill press that I see all the time at the "side of the road" tool sales. I do not think I would try to mill anything with it. one of the biggest reasons is because the spindal moves some , it floats a bit, if their is allmost any play in the spindal I wouyld think the cutter will chatter and that would not be much good.
    if you have a big old press with something like a 3" spindal you sould be looking OK for lite work.

    Thanks, yes I have the $50 HF model. I need to get a small mill sometime. This was brand new, it wasn't me that rebuilt a drill?

    Try it Jeff. The worst you'll do is snap an end mill and I've a drawer full I've snapped on a Bridgeport.
