    Clausing 8540 Horizontal Milling Machine(s) for sale, Carmel California

    there's only one thing keeping me from agreeing with you guys. Reality. if you think $500 bucks worth of crap is worth $4500, shut the fuck up and buy it.

    UN thread designation

    i think he's referring to the 2-1/8 also being 17/8 I would say, if someone sends you a print with 17/8 on it, crumple it up and forget it. That will only be the beginning of your problems. Or, send them a quote with the price called out in nineths of a dollar.

    OT- Tour of Ed Pink's race engine shop--soon to be torn down to make a bus stop

    Ya, not exactly the neighborhood you want to have a flat tire in late at night. I notice Vibrasonic moved out of there. I went to that strip club once , maybe 35 years ago. Place should have had "Skaggs" somewhere in the name

    Special screws for 6-32 heliciol insert tapped hole

    oops, 10-32 is too big. 8-32 is about .020 under, i think it would be pretty easy to strip them i use 6-40 bolts in 4-40 sti holes. It works well, screw pitch is about .010 under and i think you could strip them if not careful.

    Special screws for 6-32 heliciol insert tapped hole

    no it's not I used to make my own special screws. What a pita here's what I've been doing lately, and it works great. Get some 6-32 timeserts. you need to grind the head off, which is easy to do if you screw it onto a shoulder bolt. Then, attach it to a 6-32 bolt with some red locktite.
