No one is older than me. I have a YOUNGER brother named Methuselah, who incidentally invented dirt! This makes me OLDER than dirt! So quit complaining. You could be older than me, but you're not!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Check OSG,

YG-1 Recomendation data, (they also make a very good tap, reasonably priced):

Fluid: Castrol Moly-D

You may need to use series taps, and if machining use- a forming tap, all depends on what you are needing.

After listening to you old timers, I feels like a spring chicken. ::)
