Some bits from LMS
« on: October 24, 2009, 06:17:59 PM »
If you are from the US I think that LMS have a few real good items on offer or for sale at this time.

I am lucky in that I have a friend who brings me stuff back from the US, but the exchange rate isn't good for us at the moment, but for you local guys, here are a few that I can really recommend.

I had one of these brought back a while ago, and if you have a bit of throat depth on your mill, it is a great tool. In fact it is dead easy to make shorter pins for those higher jobs on the RT. It is on special for a week. It is well worth downloading and watching the vid. It shows just how easy and quick it is to use. It is one of those tools that you might think of as a gimmick, but I can attest, it is far from it.

Coaxial Centering Indicator

There is no excuse for not having a milling vice backstop at this price. You will wonder how you ever lived without it.

Mill backstop

For all those who crave accuracy, but are limited by the digivern, one of these can solve your problems. I use one where I want to accurately measure larger diameters and widths, which is where a digivern tends to start to lose it's accuracy.

Dial caliper

This is another thing I use a lot. If the thought of the cost of a set of slips puts you off buying them, for the average machinist, these will work great, and are very well made indeed. I have two sets of precision slips, but for almost all jobs I use these, I find them much easier to handle.
Mine came in a blow moulded case, which I actually prefer.

Space block set

I hope you found some of them interesting, and worth considering.
