    A drill press should not used for milling functions. You might get away with it for a bit, but the taper of the chuck and bearings are not made for milling. It will eventually throw the bit and/or...

    You're understanding is incorrect... it's actually almost reversed.

    I would strongly recommend that last part from the manual for getting a resistor value of the motor. If you have a power supply there's no reason you shouldn't try to figure out the forward voltage...

    Indeed as in "Yes, it works."

    I'm doing it right now. In addition to TCSS parts I grabbed some nylon parts from my hardware store. A 1.375" washer works for the inside of a Graflex. So not only...

    Yeah, I was just poking my head over there. I'll probably post soonish there. I did look around to see if someone had more posts than me at this point... took JLo a few years but it appears she has!

    Yeah, they were a direct tap to the power and amped the PWM from those outputs. I wasn't aware of a limit, but I'm not surprised as it's probably the practical limit of the components.

    Green/Blue/White Rebels can all go up to 1A just fine. It's within their specs, but for some reason Luxeon publishes them at 700mA.

    I've found no reason to go to more, but they don't make that...

    Tritium is highly regulated. Not nearly as bright as people may want too. It's used a lot for gun sights. It'll also "die" in a few years (less than a decade).

    Do you have calipers? that has to be a rough guess because 3mm is very visibly too large. It takes little to not fit well. Sanding is not unusual though. Tends to be larger with the thin tubes...
