    The chuck is actually a separate accessory. IIRC, I bought my chuck elsewhere (still a 6-jaw) and mounted it to the TBAS. It doesn't do anything special for tapers, but you can shim them how you...

    I love Kroil. It seems to creep between the barrel and lead fouling, in particular. It's also amazing for casting. Molds lubed with Kroil throw good articles the first time, so no need to clean...

    If you must, then an angle grinder is quick and easy, but it's remarkable how much an anvil is restored just by use. (Well, it does nothing for the sides, but that's fine by me.) Not sure what...
