Boring Bars - not an anti drinking comment

Spent today making some boring bars for work on the ML7. I use a piece of 8mm HSS to make a cutter which I mount in a square hole drilled and filed in the bar and retained with a 6mm screw from below. Today I had to run down some 25mm stock and tried the travelling steady to control chatter. In practice it worked very well.
