So what's the best way to link to photos?
Imo, it's much easier to just upload the photos here. That way they don't disappear if they get removed from the site that's hosting them.
Just use the Go Advanced reply button, and click on Manage Attachments.
You can't find a hockey puck in Canada?

"You can't find a hockey puck in Canada?"
Well the Canadiens are out of the payoffs so the hockey season is officially over . So why would the stores still carry them? Just kidding, I asked around and they were over a buck apiece, I have lots of oak and a lathe so I made the substitute.
"the talent of some of those guys are amazing"
I do a lot of lurking to. There are quite a few very capable people there.
Spent part of yesterday and today drilling holes. You would think the steel would start to get lighter with all those holes. I ordered a tap guide similar to carveOne's, a couple of taps, some drill bits, and 2 counter bores from Wholesale Tool. The tap guide was on back order so i had to cancel it from the order. still not shipped. The guides and R&P kits are in Canadian customs.
If I get some time next week I'll do some tapping. Then onto welding
You can make a passable drill guide from a couple or three layers of 1x3 oak board glued together. Using a drill press, drill the size holes in the oak that you will be drilling in steel. Then position and clamp the proper hole at the place you want to drill. It can be tricky to get the hole in the block on the center punch mark, but a transfer punch set can be used to do this. Use the punch to feel when the hole in the block is centered over the punch mark.
It was the tap guide I couldn't get. Delivery would have been 3 or 4 months. I plan to use a wood guide to keep the tapping straight now.
The tap guide is very handy to have. Sometimes the tap has some run-out but some fiddling with it usually gets it running straight. It has to do with how the little clamping jaws inside the tap handle gets seated when you tighten it. It even works on round pipe.
Up here we have to watch who the company ships with. The brokerage fees with UPS are said to be exorbitant . I always use USPS. Brokerage is $5 along with the other taxes. I think Grizzly only ships UPS so I haven't used them.
Cncrouterparts and Wholesale tool allow USPS so I used them.
