    In the bag

    I made a bushing at .261 and it is much better for tension. I had to re-find the jam length. Im kissing the lands now. With the extra tension I can see the land marks a lot better than before. Thanks...

    Out of center

    That looks just like an out of center threading tool. Looks to be dragging. A HSS cutter would likely give a better finish with sulphurated oil. Some materials are nearly allergic to carbide cutters...
