    home made mounts for line boring

    Some have asked me about my avatar, so I thought I'd share some of the jobs I used it on
    along with how I had to adapt some bits of scrap to be able to use it
    OK the boring bar and the adapter to fit the Versi-mill are home made as well

    If I can ever get around to recovering data from a dead hard drive I have about 10 more special tools that I made for the dumore
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Thanks Frank. I made my own (mag drill Powered) years a go. Did a lot of boring with it. Glad to see someone else doing this. Love your title??? at the bottom. Never tell me it can't be done! Been my motto for years. I'll figure it out one way or another.

    Did you ever find the pics of the other Versa-Mil mods?
    Is that a Model 31 (1) or 32 (2)?
    I've got a 32 (the larger one) that I'm restoring that I'll probably do a post on when it's done.

    Thanks
