Nice work as usual Greyson turning the Bridgeport into a punch press. You would have been a real asset in our shop.
I'm terrible about using the quill as a punch holder. I figure if I am pulling with less force than on a 1/2 drill in steel, it shouldn't hurt anything. The table and vise make the worlds easiest to align die bolster. The good ole BP is just the most versatile tool in the world.http://www.thegaragegazette.com/index.php?topic=24587.0

Been a lot of Bud box gaskets used around here
These were going to be some fancy waxed cardboard out of the trash can, but there happened to be a nice roll of bonified material in the drawer.
