Hi Dunc,

Machines are courtesy of my employer, they were kind enough to let me use the equipment on the weekends and during holidays. Just wait till you see the WaterJet cutter !
As far as castings are concerned, I have seen worse, a LOT worse ( not from Stuart ) ! Hard spots, inclusions, porousness, and yes you are right, you always discover them on finishing cut !
Imperial is ok, been working with it for a long time, in Australia we use a mix of both, metric and imperial. But still, when I encounter 21/64 or something like that, I have to reach for the calculator.
I will have to buy some taps and dies, mostly BA's, the rest should be available at my factory.
