So I was down in my little shop just making . . . stuff. Anyway I had to tap some holes to 3/8" - 16 thread in some 3/8" thick steel plate. Got ready to go & whoops . . . no cutting oil . . . in fact NO oil! Then I spied my bottle of Lyman Case Lube. I thought, well I'll give it a try. I've tapped a lot of holes & threaded a lot of rod & pipe & this was the best & slickest cutting oil that I've ever used! Wish I had a quart of it! That would be pretty darn expensive though.
If someone else had of done to me what I did to myself . . . I'd have killed him. Humility is an asset. Heh - heh.
