I have one of those, it's a great oiler. I like it a lot. But I also like my Eagles and Plews too.

I've had to change the cover O ring on one of my three. I have the assortment case, so it was just a matter of selecting the right size

Been using a Shars face mill in my knee mill. 2.5" that uses APKT1604 inserts. I think of it as my sliver generator, scrapes little tiny chips that are conducive to piercing your fingers. Turning up the chipload/feed rate doesn't seems to work. Their inserts don't impress me.
I also have a huge 6" kennametal facemill that uses SEHT43 inserts. They have a sharp, hi positive edge and cut nicely, although I haven't tried that in my smaller mill. I decided to buy this Glacern face mill that also uses the SEHT43 inserts. I'm trying to use common inserts where I can, rather than creating a whole morass of them. Both of the SEHT facemills are 45 degree, so no milling to a shoulder but hopefully better facing stuff on the mill. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try this over the weekend.

I would like to thank Ray(extropic) for offering to go out of his way to purchase, and deliver a US General tool chest to the pier for me. We went to the closest store, and bought whatever color they had in stock. I could have bought a Husky with their drawer layout for 139.00, but I have wanted to try the US General, I'm not disappointed, and it's cheaper than a Snap-On.

I'm so pleased that it got there safely.

It looks GOOD!

Since you didn't mention any dings, I'll assume it's in good shape.

I delivered it to the freight forwarders on Nov 10, so only 14 days to your door. That seems pretty reasonable.

You are very welcome.

That is a beautiful fake lista. I would kinda like to get one and get rid of the one toolbox i got for free.

Awesome that you stepped up to the plate to help him out.
