    Racine Power Hacksaw - FREE (Mass.)

    Racine Power hacksaw. This was given to me by a friend, but unfortunately I don't think I'll ever get to fixing it up. As it sits, I believe it should run properly, it's just in rough shape. The lever to start cutting has been broken / brazed, and I think it's missing the mechanical lifter to...

    Prototrak SMX Z Axis not correct (3 Axis Mode)

    We have a prototrak SMX mill at work, about two weeks ago I noticed that when in 3 Axis Mode, the Z axis will be off +.010". So if you set your tool and ran a program to take a .020" depth cut, it will actually only cut about .010". The Z axis always reads correct/ repeats. But for some reason...

    "Correct" gear cutter does not match gear profile (What did I do wrong?)

    Rookie question, I haven't touched gearing since high school, and even then I didn't quite understand it. I have to make a new gear for my Bridgeport shaper head. I did the math to find out what cutter I need, but when the cutter arrived, the profile was different than the gear. It's much...

    Recommend shop to grind lathe bed? - New England area

    I have a Clausing 5914 that I need to get the bed ground. There is wear near the headstock that is causing me to turn a taper. I have tightened the spindle bearings and that was not the problem. I turned a long shaft using a live center, and was able to produce a perfectly straight shaft up...

    A friend found me a L-W Chuck dividing head at the scrapyard, in pretty good condition except the spindle threads are all mangled up. It is the larger 10" version they made.

    NEEDED 1"-5 2 Start Acme Rod

    Does anyone know where I can source a 1"-5 2 start acme rod? Or if anyone has a piece on hand? I need 24". McMaster has 1"-4, and 1"-6, but no 1"-5 in 2 start. I can get tooling to make the shaft but would likely never need them again so don't want to waste money on that. Thanks Eric

    Brown and Sharpe Magnetic Bases

    Two vintage Brown and Sharpe Magnetic bases. Both work, but "on/off" is not necessarily where it's supposed to be. I believe that's why the pins were removed on the blue one. Both have indicator clamps but no rods or anything like that. $30 each + shipping Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
