    My First Punch

    D2 would be the material of choice for the punches and die blocks. Or you can order punches pre-made from Danly and get a set of die buttons then install them in some 4130 and be done with it. I don't think a 4 ton arbor press would be the way to go on this (your arms are going to get very...

    Hardinge "special accuracy" collets?

    Aren't the normal Hardinge 5c collets 3 flutes with roughly 1/2" of grip? The Hardinge 5SC collets are 4 flute with over an inch of grip creating the higher accuracy. Or am I all wrong and haven't bought any collets in a long, long time? Rich McCain.

    How To Run Carbide Endmills In Manual Machines

    I have to say this is a good discussion. I have been doing it for so long, that I don't even think about it anymore. It has come down to what feels right for me. I run manual Acer every day, and adjust feed and speed without thought. Same on the Hardinge HLV. I have a new guy with no...

    Improving a Handwheel

    Try a can of plasti-dip. It puts somewhat of a grippy surface on pliers, screwdrivers and the like, should work fine for this too.

    Newbie Intro -- Mic Frame Patterns?

    Now that makes sense. I know about the special mics for can seams and other things, but never gave any real thought or research in to straight versus c shapes.

    Newbie Intro -- Mic Frame Patterns?

    Okay fellows, I am still waiting for someone to answer the real question here. Why do some mics have a shallow frame and others have the C shape? After thirty years, I admit that I don't know the answer to this one either. At time though, I have wondered about this.

    Hardening Steel

    Quite a few years ago, we made pins for skidders out of 4140 and had them induction hardened. These were 4" and 3" dia. pins. I worked for an LLC, and if I remember correctly, they were made with the understanding that as was stated previously we did not warranty them due to no control over...

    PM T shirts ?

    I'll chime in with my 2 cents. If the quality is there, then it doesn't matter wether all cotton or a blend. It just depends on the use or abuse and the quality. But for me, I would prefer a henly style with deep pocket, small logo on front, nothing on back. The button up front is great when...

    OT - Herniated Discs

    Another thing that helps is if you can place a bucket next to where you are standing and place 1 foot up on it. Then switching which leg is raised from time to time. I think how this works is by straightening out the posture when you stand for long times. I had back surgery 5 years ago for a...

    OT- Cat litter

    You did ask what concoctions can help with the odor, so seeing as how anything going in affects what comes out, what they eat is the best place to start. AFter that, only thing I can offer is to use baking soda in the bottom of the pan and once a week, sanitize the box real good or use box...

    Honing ways or table?

    We use to clean our stone with kerosene on a flat cast iron surface that we kept just for this. Every once in a while we would put a dab of clover compound mixed with kerosene on the table and rub our stones through this until the stone was flat, then rinse with more kerosene to clean. Now, I...

    O.T. Electric problem

    Each of the 4 units have a separate meter. I turned all breakers off and checked the wire at the main lugs in the breaker panel, before the breakers. The power meter outside the house is just barely moving, even slower than when 120 volts are present. I have called the power company and will...

    O.T. Electric problem

    One of my residential tenants called with no power on the main level of their townhouse. I went over to check it out and the lights were real dim. There was no 220 service for the heat, stove and water heater. I opened up the breaker panel and checked the incoming voltage. One leg had 117...
