Royce picked up and sent a tool to me. He drove to a place near his home, bought the piece with his own money and shipped it to me.
Thanks Royce and thanks MTFCA for the great forum that allows stuff like this to happen.
Hey it was a fun place to visit - a real old school shop that deals in used aviation tools and new surplus machine shop items. I am glad to know that this business exists. I wish I had known they were there in my back yard 25 years ago!
So many businesses that used to deal in lathe and milling machine items have gone away. Dallas used to have 50 businesses like this - now most of them are gone, due to cheap offshore junk being sold mail order.
