    Stripped screw on J-HS head

    I have a T-ram B/P with the J-HS stepper head and that collar on top, the one you move to go from hi to low has the two shoulder screw guide pins that run in that angled slot, well one of those screws stripped out. Hi range runs fine but low will do a partial gear grind because the inner piece...

    Riveting question

    Ok, I have this clutch basket / gear assembly of my 1989 KTM 500 dirtbike and it's two pieces, a die cast aluminum clutch basket riveted to a steel gear with six steel rivets 8mm in diameter. The rivets have worked loose and the rivet heads started breaking off (good thing for a magnetic drain...

    Turning between centers

    I've got a part to run and it's a high speed roll for a folder/gluer packaging machine. The material is 3-1/4" stressproof steel 44" long. It's a typical looking roll, looking just like a rolling pin with a 30" center section at 3.117" - 3.119" finish diameter and a 1.500" - 1.498" 7" long stem...

    OT: Building a Rope Tow - snow tube play hill

    Wondering if a rope tow can be built to pull snow tubes with riders up a hill using a lawnmower engine and a geared speed reducer. This is a continuous rope loop like a standard ski lift. Distance is about 200 feet, grade is very slight, and there are trees to anchor to. Lots of suggestions...

    OT: Room A/C Size

    My shop is 24'x32' and 8' high ceiling. All finished interior with fully insulated attic and walls, approx. 8" slab floor. My question is this: How big of a window-mount a/c unit do I need to cool it in terms of BTUs? Window is 33" square so I can go fairly big. Temps go mid to high 90's here...

    FS: KDK Toolpost with holders

    KDK Toolpost, and it's missing it's ID plate. It's not the smallest one they make, but I'm assuming it's next one up. It uses the "00" series of holders, like KDK's "02","03",ect. The KDK body itself is 2.5" wide, 4.5" long, and 2.200" high. It uses a 5/8" centerbolt. It comes with a .437"...

    OT: Chevy charging problems

    1994 Chevy Silverado 2500 6.5L Turbo diesel is eating up alternators about every year or so, and it's not a daily driver. I'm using so-called "premium quality" ones from NAPA and they start off fine, delivering about 14V on the dash meter and then going weaker and weaker over time according to...

    KING Machine Tools

    There's one machine I love more than anything. It's the KING vertical boring mills and vertical turret lathes. They rock. Gravity-loading. No tailstock, no steadyrests, followrests, or any of the typical monkey-business that goes on with regular lathes. Just big fat F,T,&B gravy. Very nice work...

    Machine Shop Tricks

    I like tricks. Not tricks like the old "grease on the handles" or Super-gluing soda cans to the workbench. Those are fun, too. I mean tricks like holding roundstock for sawing on a table-type bandsaw with an upside-down mill vise. And turning roundstock in a mill collet with the turning bit in...

    1/4 turn fasteners

    Trying to get some good selection info on 1/4 turn fasteners. You might see them on Sportbike body panels, among other places. They have a "stud" held in place by a "retainer" that stays captive on the removable panel. This stud stabs into the fixed-location "socket". I'm looking all over, Mc...
