    WTB: Dyna Mechtronics bt30 pull studs

    I bought mine to do a retrofit on, I pretty much threw all of the original electronics away. If you want to part yours out there is a dynamechtronics forum in the cnczone forums that seems to be kind of active.

    How should a size a central dust collection unit CFM?

    Definitely, but in this application there are particals with lead in them and also very fine polymer particals in a very large facility with a sizeable number of people working in the area. It's a health issue I want to try and tackle.

    How should a size a central dust collection unit CFM?

    I want to size a dust collection unit for an application where there will be several grinding and drilling stations simultaneously working. How should I pick the correct CFM without going way overkill? I was thinking of getting a rough volume of all our fume hoods to get a general idea of what...

    I want to temper a hardened pulley so I can turn it. Bad idea?

    Actually it is a factory made adapter. It's off a 1990s vintage machine so probably not many exist today, the format sure didn't catch on as an industry standard.

    I want to temper a hardened pulley so I can turn it. Bad idea?

    Not sure cutting down the motor arbor is an option as it's a servo motor and I have no idea what kind of wizardry is going on inside there. I do have a small boring bar with a handful of what I assume are China made carbide inserts, I've never turned anything hardened and my lathe defiantly...

    I want to temper a hardened pulley so I can turn it. Bad idea?

    I have a little pully adapter shaft that is pretty unique to a machine I'm working on and need to widen the motor arbor hole to fit a larger motor. My plan is to chuck it up in a lathe and turn a larger diameter arbor hole and enlarge the keyway, my problem is that its made from an unknown...

    Looking in the Ohio area, what companies do drones or additive manufacturing?

    Thanks guys, I think I may have found a position thats a pretty good fit. On the Intel subject, have you heard anything about when they anticipate their facilities to be running? Kinda sounds like a good opportunity to work with AM embedded electronics.

    Looking in the Ohio area, what companies do drones or additive manufacturing?

    Hello all, I just finished up a ME degree and am looking around for an interesting starting position near Ohio or Indiana. It seems a bit overwhelming at the moment to find specific companies out of a haystack of employers when I don't recognize any names. Are there any companies to check out...

    Found this in a job posting: Is ANSI 14.5Y a real thing?

    Interesting. Thanks for the clarification. I bet if I point out this mistake I'll get the job for sure! lol

    Found this in a job posting: Is ANSI 14.5Y a real thing?

    I came across an ME job position I'm wanting to apply for but there's something a little odd in the job description. I'm pretty sure whoever made it meant to type ASME Y14.5 (GD&T) but instead wrote "Engineering drawing standards (ANSI 14.5Y)" I'm pretty new to this industry in a professional...

    Does anyone have a Cat V50 forklift? Trying to locate where my serial number is

    No such luck, I checked under the dash and didn't see anything. Hoping maybe this weekend I'll power wash it again and something else will show up. It's crazy how it wouldn't be stamped in the metal frame in a noticeable place.

    Does anyone have a Cat V50 forklift? Trying to locate where my serial number is

    By chance does anyone have an old Cat tow motor? I have a V50 (from what I was told) forklift that has no data tags on it, estimate it was built back in the early 1980's. I'm trying to find a serial number stamped somewhere on it but so far have had no luck locating it. I called the Cat service...

    Refrigerated air dryer question

    I found an old refrigerated air dryer that I want to use but don't really know anything about them. Do these units need to be part of a system of air tanks, ect.. to actually work or can I essentially just hook it inline with my compressor hose and get it to work? It's a really small 110v 10cfm...

    Balancing my RFC, I keep blowing a start capacitor. Could voltage be an issue?

    Well I got everything balanced as well as I can with my capacitor supply on hand. I'm surprised I got it to run on a 50a breaker. When I start it up all the shop lights dim for a breif second but when it's running with no load it's only drawing a little less than 8 amps if my cheap clamp on amp...
