Default Re: Inexpensive way to give it a try

Steve,

Thanks for the info, looks like I'll have to get the sharpener to make life easier. What size/style blank do you use with it? The blank I've tried to cut the proper angles on is 3/16 HSS. Granted, I just wanted to see if I could make a few lines in some brass, but I found I spent a couple hours playing with it and making some ugly lines. When I went to find info, I saw your site and gained a little hope that I could actually learn it.

Thanks for the encouragement on the V8, those are long term projects.:willy_nilly:

Thanks again for the help!
Rob
