I was at my parents house and saw a printout of an order from Harbor Freight....Looks like a 12 toner......

I got Plinkers rivet jig on the way and a new shiny drill press!!!!!

Looks like I need some parts kits..;....

And I owe it all to you guys, who I feal have shared enough knowledge to get me thru my first build.....Thanks

Ditto on the safety issue of that press....

Don't hesitate to ask some of the guys on the board about steel under pressure.

And take lots of photos of your first build when you get that press!!!!

... What is a 12 toner? Most printing presses I've seen were only 3 tones, sometimes they had a forth color; magenta.

"steel under extreme pressure is nothing less than a bomb waiting to go off."

YUP!!! You'd be amazed at how deeply a chunk of steel can imbed itself in a cinder block wall, hahaha!!!( I know I was!!!)

Sounds like someone's getting some nice tooling, though...

Yep steel under pressure is dangerus. I had a cast steel piece break on me. Crushed sinus cavity on right side. Two broken teeth, lots of stitches and a broken finger.

OK, I seen several mentions of Plinker's jig. I have searched and I can't find the info. How can I get one?
