With a 20mm hole?

Wow, Makky, I wish my sparky had arrived as quickly as you got those plates done up. Yes yours look very similar to the ones I have. Sorry I couldn't get you the exact dimensions right now, but you look really close! I use an MKR (?) brand from Andrew and Leah, around .25 mm and it works really well, just no good if you want to cut anything too thick.
Common sense isn't exactly common

All good Bucket, hope your sorted you electric issues. Hopefully I"ll get a chance to finish the new knob and see if it cuts tomorrow.

Congrats, looks pretty slick. Could be a real game changer for speeding up the initial cutting for large, hard stones. Is it pretty chippy on the facet edges?
