    Anybody have a lathe?

    I need about a 4" length of 14mm round steel stock. Here, of course, the closest I can get is 1/2" (a good solid measure, that) just too small though.

    So to get what I need I have to rely on the interwebs.

    Anybody?

    14 mm round steel bar is European standard, if you don't get it anywhere closer to yourself drop me a PM and I'll get it for you here in Finland.

    I know. It's amazing that I have to go to this extreme to get a piece. I thank you for your kind offer and may take you up on it. I am going to try one or two ideas that I have had this week. If they don't produce results, I will be back to you.

    Thanks again.

    I find it very surprising there isn't somewhere in the entire USA that has it.

    Problem is that I am not buying industrial quantities. Also, I could go to a machine shop but god knows what their hourly rate is.

    I'll take a look for you tomorrow. I think I may have it as rolled bar.

    thank you.



    Watch: this time next week I'll have 5 metric tons of the stuff and will have a corner on the lucrative Hotchkiss Cap Pin market.

    I am batting a zero here. I think that it is time to unleash the Metric Hordes.
