    looking for a tuner that can use both holes , I dont want to
    use the hipshot rail adapters!

    I reach for those more often than a good ruler, I love them.

    I grew up in my dad’s prototype machine shop where he and his two guys made parts for the Mercury and Apollo space programs. One of my jobs as a young teen was to inspect and re-certify the guys calipers and micrometers. I used calipers and micrometers daily.

    I still have the old ones I used almost 60 yrs ago.

    As a layman, I'm surprised how much I use mine. Very useful tool.

    Yup, I’m a fellow layman. I grew up in a machine shop that I’m sure my dad wished I would take over but the minute I was 16 with a car I was long gone from the machine shop world before I got any good at it. I became a lifeguard with girl coworkers in tiny bathing suits, :cool: Much more appealing than looking at Mike or Wade at their lathes.......:eek: I even married one of those hotties (not Mike or Wade) ....Still got her:)
