    I like that initial 'threading' thingy Clinton. The re-purposed what-ever-it-is

    Hi,
    Yes, same for me, the threading idea is great, I will keep that, and also the way you flute your reamer is really inspiring, I didn't have the idea to weld it temporarily while grinding it, that's the idea !
    And also your adjustable reamer with the set screw and bit welded at the bottom, that's also a great idea !
    Thanks for that !
    Christophe

    (question what kind of welding do you use, is it MIG ?)
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Ahhh, the coil winding tool. I wound a double spiral coil to be used as a cold water condenser using it. The coil is depicted briefly in the video.

    Yes, it's a little Lincoln 220V with an argon/co2 mix.
