    Kudos on getting published! Technical "stuff" like that is way over my head but I can readily appreciate the knowledge, ability, and organization that it takes to do such an article!

    Congratulations. I used to pick up a copy of Homeshop Machinest now and then when it had something of interest to me. Then Hastings went out of business and I don't have a source for any magazine unless I subscribe to it.

    Congrats..... Getting published is a notable accomplishment and one to be proud of. Years ago I was putting together a piece for "Varmint Hunter" magazine which is sadly no longer around. Back then they accepted freelance work from subscribers. Never did get it finished before they went belly up. If I had gotten published there I was gonna make sure I had about a dozen copies of that issue.

    Very cool. The ability to come up with the idea, competently execute it, and then put it together in an instructive, understandable, and readable manner. Individually those are uncommon talents, collectively, that's pretty awesome.

    Excellent! Keep up the good work!
    Many of us like to think we have useful machining skills, until we encounter someone who actually does.

    Good work! My hearty congratulations.

    I had an article published in about 1983. It was the only one, but the memory still feels good.
