I had to put a 1/8" groove in a steel cylinder, the idea came to me to put the cylinder in a drill and mount the drill in a vice going at full speed. then I used a hacksaw blade going in a 90 degrees to put in the groove. the purpose of the groove was to mnake a place for a snap ring. just thought i would share in case somebody had an application for this. anyone else have some homemade devices that they use?
