    although it would stand as a reminder to him, he cant buy cheap tooling. although i bet the thing wasn't that cheap to buy anyway.some times even the junk is expensive.
    You are right, it would bother me every time I see it.
    Some of the rounding mill sets I have been looking at run around $250 -$300, and I'm, still not sure of the quality. I'm just glad I only bought 1 Chinese mill. I had a feeling it might be a disappointment regardless of what I was told that it was pretty decent. Maybe my standards are too high but I don't buy this attitude that its good enough for hobby use. Just because I'm not a professional machinist doesn't mean I don't want a good final product. I never could understand the attitude that "its good enough for hobby use."

      i think "its good enough for hobby use" is not really something you could say about a mill in the first place.
      i don't mind "IGEFHU" if its just about the time it takes to get it done, i suspect they meant it wold work with a little clean up after use and as a hobby guy you have the time. but like you i would want my Mill to work right the first time every time, not know every time i use this tooling i need to allow for cleanup after.
      i think "IGEFHU" has its place, but this is not one of them.
      i hope you can find a better tooling at a affordable price. if you want to look at the glass as 1/2 full...... now you know who not to get tolling from.
      thanks for the help
      ......or..........
      hope i helped

        I think the quickest way to turn any one off from a hobby is to give them junk tools to work with, weather they are dull knives to carve with or crappy brushes to paint with. I feel if you can't afford the hobby, its best to find one you can. Of course I know there is exceptions to every rule, but this is my general consensus.

          verry true, hobby is no fun fighting with your tools all the time. you would be better off colecting stamps.

            Go-cart racing used to be a cheap affordable alternative to car racing, but I was at the track in Beaver and the go-carts they were racing looked pretty pricey. I got a few pics of some regular ones but did not get any of the high end carts.
            I'm not sure if the last 3 pics qualify for go-carts or race cars. They have 500 cc and 1500 cc snow mobile engines.
