    Material safety for small children?

    I became a grandfather a couple of months ago when my oldest daughter gave birth to twin girls. One of the first thing that comes to my mind is that now I have grandkids to make stuff for. I've got a couple of simple designs in mind that would be appropriate for their ages in a couple of...

    SB 9C for sale in the Omaha, NE area

    Just wanted to give a "heads up" for anyone looking for what appears to be a pretty decent deal on a 9C. South Bend Lathe - tools - by owner - sale These don't show up in this area very often especially as complete as this one looks. FWIW - I have no idea who the seller is and do not have any...

    Any tips for making mill tramming less irritating?

    I have an older Wells-Index 860 mill that is roughly set up like a Bridgeport, 4 nuts that hold the head on and a worm gear to angle it side to side. It's a bit worn and the worm gear has some slop so I need to loosen the bolts to get movement without possibly destroying the worm gear (yes, I...

    Odd SB on local CL

    I believe this is an old SB anyway. It's history is probably pretty questionable considering some of the odd things I see on it. Two things in this pic, the abortion of tooling sticking out of the tailstock and it looks like there is an electric motor attached to the cross slide screw. The...

    Landis lathe information

    A Landis 12" x 40" lathe showed up on my local Craig's List and while the name kind of "rings a bell" I don't know if/or remember ever seeing one. The price is kind of OUT there as well. Here is the ad (I'm not trying to help sell it and have no idea who owns it -FWIW): Landis 12X40 lathe -...

    Two Hendey lathes and a LeBlond Regal at auction , Lincoln, NE - FYI

    Looking for a price check on this Steptoe shaper

    I was planning on making an offer on this Steptoe shaper but I thought I'd get some input on what you guys thought it may be worth before I do. I know it's tough with the poor pic but here is what I know about it... It's a 16" and I won't be able to see/hear it run as the seller doesn't have...

    Instead of 3D printed guns they've just discovered.... US!

    OT: (sort of) NFA rant

    Can someone give me any explanation or reasoning, reasonable or not, why adding a folding stock to a pistol somehow makes it a SBR? Let's see, same cartridge, same magazine, same sights, etc. and overall less concealable. So how is it "more dangerous" than the standard pistol? I know the...

    What lube to use on old Cincinnati bench grinder?

    I just finished rewiring an old Cincinnati bench grinder I purchased at auction for my shop. I haven't been able to find out any information about the grinder or it's age so before firing it up for a prolonged time I'd like to find out what I need to be using for lubrication of the bearings...

    OT: Be alert, Babin seems to be misrepresenting himself on CL

    Browsing my local CL this evening I come across this suspicious ad with questionable english: It would appear that he is trying to represent himself as Victor from Plaza Machinery. It's even odder that this showed up in the Omaha, NE CL, he must be desperate to find more rubes. Check out...

    My wife has become interested in shooting more and would like to work towards a concealed carry permit.

    Interesting read on the short-comings of the M4

    Although none of this information is "new" I still found this article interesting. Troops left to fend for themselves after Army was warned of flaws in M4 carbine assault rifle - Washington Times I'm not sure just why it is making the headlines "now" though. "Politics" probably. :rolleyes5...

    Just how "safe" would a "printed" gun be?

    Guys, I just read this article on Forbes concerning a gun that was "completely made with a 3D printer" They say the only component not made on the printer was the firing pin. I'm wondering more about the barrel(s). Can a "printed" plastic be strong enough to withstand even some of the lower...

    Anyone suggest a good vendor for Newall DROs for my Wells-Index 860?

    I have been shopping around on the internet and I see a number of places where they are available. I'm looking at the Newall 700 DRO with microsyn5 encoders. (That is unless I'm showed a "better" option - I kind of like the design of the microsyn encoders.) The problem comes in to play when I...
