I am unfortunately VERY concerned about Taiwan.
same here. I think it will fall. The chineese have been very aggressive lately. not just with taiwan, notice the new island they built and declared the area including other soverign nations as theirs, and the sea is their too since it falls in their new border.

lets call that another form of nation building.. not a good one.

I hope you saved the pieces of the stone.
they can be very handy. And if you have a diamond wheel for an angle grinder you can create new shapes... good for honing or shaping depending on the grit.

I saved it. This is why I said that I now have three of different sizes... The one I dropped broke in three pieces. So I will have four when the new one arrives. ;)

Picked up this radial drill press last week. More for the woodworking side of my shop, but it may see some use with softer metals.

The seller had a few other items for sale so I also got this old Craftsman bench grinder and stand. I couldn't have even gotten a Harbor Fright Bench Grinder for $40.

It was kind of funny the seller had both of these from new (1970s vintage as far as I can tell) and still had the manuals for them, but he couldn't find the other guard. He had several attachments that he used on the bare side, so he hadn't had the guard on there for a long time. The attachments came with it, a little drum sander, wire wheels etc.

Sooner or later an error will be made and will lead to China invading Taiwan. No way to stop them and no one will be willing to retaliate.
The US policy of "One China" grants them permission. A strange policy given that the US sells arms to Taiwan.

Actually we should not support a 1 China, they reneged on the deal with the Brits over Hong Kong, and Biden and Xsi met recently and Xsi said they would not invade China, then a few days later said they would become one.. So we should toss the 1 china out the window ... f them.. The consequences of their lies should be a change in our policy.. we should not go to war, but we should support Taiwan if they go to war.. problem is... we no longer make anything... china holds all the cards... how f'd up we have become... But I digress... I don't want to get into a political discussion.
