    New to me SB 10L screaming at me while parting

    Question about maximizing cutting efficiency on an old Cincinnati horizontal mill

    Dope Sir, Here's a few things that may be of use to you. Always consider the 'direction of force' when milling. If your 'up milling' ( feeding the work piece into the work whilst cutter is exiting the top ) the part is going to want to kick forward. Put a kicker or a stop to keep it from moving...

    Hey Ya'll, Many years ago when I was doing concrete day in and day out.. We had a rather large job where we used coil rods for our form work.. LOt's of nut turning there as the wall was 'battered' ( think pyramid shaped) and we only had one length of rod. Boss wouldn't let us cut the rods down...

    Is it just me or do drill bits suck now?

    Hey Ya'll, Awhile back I had a rash of bad bits.. Just couldn't seem to find any that didn't immediately need sharpening. ( I have an Oliver 21 and a Oliver 600 ) Lately I've had good results with "cle-forge" brand from MSC. Just an observation from a small job shop owner who has no skills...

    OT: Filling in a concrete pit

    To the OP, Just fill the hole up with 57's ( that's Maryland quarry/mdot speak for 1/2 blue stone/lime stone gravel ) That would be the industry standard solution. Stone can be 'settled' but not compacted. Pour what ever thickness of concrete you wish. Pin into existing slab if you wish.. If...

    Mystery Black Powder Rifle

    Bart, I have seen a similar gun of that type.. It was known as a 'ships gun'.. It could be used as a harpoon gun or as a line thrower. Also had the ability to be used as a forage gun for a shore party. Think more along the lines of a shotgun for the shore party work so no need for sights...

The numbered series have EP ( extreme pressure ) additives in them. So named is plain and numbered has additives. If there is...
