Re: Dust Tube Holder

Just a quick follow up on the holder.
It has been working very well for over a year now.

I have a small piece of scrap wood that I use for the "kickstand" to hold it up.

Re: Water Cooled Spindle Flow Indicator

I am about to jump on board the flow indicator train but want to make sure of the hose and connector. will this work with the existing hose? So, is the G14 fitting what the spindle uses? Looking at ordering these to go with the indicator: G1/4 External Thread Connector Fitting for 9.5X12.7mm Soft Tu...
