    Ok Fellow Machine Geeks

    If I can't post this here, I can't post it anywhere!

    I included the geeky details below, but here is a pic I took of some chips I made tonight, finish boring some steel tonight! They are sitting on a 1/64 inch ruler:

    I was putting a 5/8 in bore I piece of 1 inch steel, most likely 12L14, on my Heavy 10 in 5C collet. My feed was .0032, depth of cut was .004, 750 RPM. I was using an HSS boring bar pictures below:
    I LOVE these Bokum Boring Bars!

    Bernie,
    Beautiful chips. Do you have a part number or model on that boring bar. I think the shape is similar to something I'm looking for but i didn't see it on their ebay site.
    Thanks,
    Dave
