    AEB-L Etch

    Hi Fred, yes the AEB-L is stainless. (Professionally HT'd and with cryo to 61 HRC) The FC is working, although it is not quick. But, as the picture shows I am getting some strange patterns.

    Hey Man, Got A Light?

    If you want just an awesome screw in light bulb, check out Cree bulbs. The big box stores have them. I am using a 75 watt spot in one of the cheap clamp on reflector lamps at my grinder and I swear I am outside on a sunny day. Scott
