    • Have a Sternkreuz press i use for most glasses. Love it. I bought a second one on tradera some month ago for spares.  Also have an other which looks like a Robur but not 100% sure it's a Robur. Was thinking i could make an adapter  so i could use some other dies as the Robur ones cost a lot of money. Maybe i can part with that as i have to many presses anyway.   
    • That is the Indian copy of an MKS 46610 (famous Japanese brand), I got one as clearance from Germany and paid maybe less than that. If you use the search function you should find my posting.
    • My experience with the handheld cheap Chinese glass presses on eBay is truly poor, and I've come to learn that I'm not alone. Yesterday I was struggling with it for over 30 minutes to fit an armoured glass in a Vostok Amphibian before giving up. At that point, while still holding it in my hand looking at it with disdain, I thought: "What a piece of utter rubbish!". Anyway, what I'd really want would be a Robus press, but gosh, that would be over £500 with the die set (tax included, excluding shipping)! So, I found this tool "Professional spindle press for housings and glasses with twenty-four inserts" on eBay for £72. It sure sounds promising, but it would be great with a review, or if none can be had your opinion.
    • Sharpening is a science and an industry. Trivia facts follow An important figure in drill sharpening is Joseph Mazoff, a self-taught American. His article is still current on the matter and the basis for most sharpeners, I have attached it here.  A 1st brand drill bit sharpener can cost €600  https://www.wabeco-remscheid.de/catalog/product/view/id/6710/s/spiralbohrer-schleifmaschine/category/487/  It's Chinese copy, one half of that https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Drill-Bit-Electric-Big-Grinder-MR-13A-CNC-drilling-cutter-grinding-machines-with-ER11-collects/32867482062.html If you have something that cuts there is a professional way to sharpen it. Blunt axe? No problem https://www.sharpening.org.uk/product/tormek-sva-170-axe-grinding-jig/ I'm currently disputing an Amazon seller that sent a cheap knife sharpener instead of a 75mm grinding wheel  Drill_Point_Geometry_nt.pdf
    • I recall a fairly recent topic which where some was saying that Bergeon screwdriver had become worse and worse with time. We got the proof here.
