    I think we need some comparison testing between machine ground and hand ground. Maybe the Myth Busters TV show could do a tungsten special.

      thats a good idea. except that taking a GOOD pic/s of a grind would be hard for most of us.

      i have been getting pretty good at grinding mine. its just like tig'n, you need good equipment, and LOTS of practice. i just now tried to take a closeup, not good. if i could trim pics, that may help, but i don't know if i have what i need to do that.

        you can e-mail me the pic and ill resize it for ya.

        i think a sharpie would be realy cool and will no dought save up to get me 1.
        that being said i will be grinding them by hand till i get that exta did i say exta $200.00



        jeffscarstrucks made the best point here
        It's important to evaluate want vs need as an individual and not worry about the other guys. If I had to explain a NEED for all the junk in my shop then I'd be in deep trouble!

        we all may justafy a need to the lil woman on acation to get it but realy most of my stuf is well over the need limit.

        the 1 thing i realy need is to get menny, menny years out of the tool i do get.
        thanks for the help
        ......or..........

            Hey Blown S-10 take the pic right click, open with, paint, once you have it open with paint use the dotted line square to highlight the part you want to keep, right click copy, click file, new, click edit, paste. Give that a try see if it's what you were trying for. This is how i get decent resolution pics on this site. My camera when you turn up the pic quality the pic size goes up to like 500 mb or something like that, so I have to just cut out the piece I want to show.

              its not the price, kinda. its a freakin dremel with a nice wheel, and a hunk of metal with a few holes in it. does that seem like $200+ ? not to me. that thing should cost $70-$80. oh, maybe the fancy case is worth the other $120+.

              i have a hard time paying for gas for a 50' speedboat of some rich guy. sometimes it can't be avoided, but it can in this case.

                If your camera takes a 500 MB image, it must be one **** of a camera!

                I have a professional digital SLR and I know how to use it and light close ups, so if everyone wants to organize and figure out who can provide what type of grind on a specific size of tungsten and mail them to me I would be more than happy to photograph them and post them here, or even on my server as a dedicated page about the topic. I'd return your tungstens, of course.

                    Blown S-10

                    some one hooked me up with this a wile back and ill look for the link if you cant find it. it is called power toys from micro soft. it is stuf they were working on to put in windows but never got there due to time restraints or size or what ever.
                    anyway they have a pic resizer in there for windows XP all you have to do is right click on it and it will have a resize pic option along with all the standerd stuf like
                    preview
                    edit
                    print
                    resize pic
                    open with >
                    scan anti virus
                    send to >
                    cut
                    copy

                    well you get the ideal it goes right int your windows like it was always there (well it was going to but didnt make the cut ) any how it gives you the option to resize 1 or multiple pic's at once in 4 size options with a click . realy nice and i have never had a problem with it interacting with XP
                    probly the only thing i havent had truble with, with XP

                    any how ill see if i can find the link, i know it is on the microsoft home site.
                    thanks for the help

                      More to think about.

                      Comments and Opinions on the following;

                      Longitudinal Grinding verses Circular Grinding is there a difference?

                      See the following photo;

                        there is nothing to comment about. there is right, there is wrong, and there is what is that there for.
