    OT Generator Frequency Meter

    Take a look at a "Kill A Watt" meter. They are about $25. They are very handy for looking a smaller electrical loads. http://www.google.com/search?q=kill+a+watt Some of the Fluke meters require a minimum current before you can get a frequency reading.

    OT: Goggle search of Practical Machinist

    I wanted to pass along a google tool that I find very helpful, the "site:" command. I like the search provided by the site for somethings, like user names. There are times when google does a better job of tracking down information that has already been discussed. I did google for a previous...

    K&T 2H Problem

    Update: I am not sure what changed the lockup problem but I had changed much, looked under the rapid traverse clutch cover, moved the sump pump around and pulled the pulleys to confirm the motor wasn't the problem. When I put a pulley back on, the lockup was gone. Put the other pulley back on...

    K&T 2H Problem

    I just double checked and the problem occurs in the direction of the arrow on the sheave. This is also the direction of rotation under power.

    K&T 2H Problem

    I have seen the spindle rotate until the blockage is hit, this was under power at the time. This happened when I backed the motor up by hand and then engaged the power. I'll give the clutch a try.

    K&T 2H Problem

    When I "spin the motor" I have the right side door open and just manually turn the motor. I also put a tool holder in the spindle to get a hold on and spin the motor. The coolant pump that is in there has a separate power supply. I will look for signs of an old pump drive. I'm not sure what...

    K&T 2H Problem

    I have a new to me K&T #2 HL Universal Mill, serial number 15-5147. I have a couple of questions that might be related. I have a K series parts manual which doesn't seem close enough, so some of the terms might wrong. I just ordered a parts and operator manual for the H series. Sorry for the...

    OT : Does homemade biodiesel fuel actually work?

    Here is a good forum to start with if you want to make your own. Look for the appleseed processor http://forums.biodieselnow.com/ You want to not skip steps and pay attention to the quality of the used vegetable oil that you pick up. I have ran B100 ( 100% Biodiesel ) in a 94 Dodge truck for...

    WTB Shaper

    I would like to buy a medium sized shaper in repairable or better condition. I am going to be in between Colorado and Michigan this weekend and the beginning of next week with a gooseneck trailer. I will have about 7000 pounds of capacity left. So this rules out the really big ones. If you...

    Horizontal Mill advise wanted

    Well thanks for the information. I did put in a bid. We'll see how it goes. I wouldn't want to get anything too new. I have a Harrison 13" lathe from 1973. I forget the age of a Cincinnati no. 2 tool and cutter grinder, I think it was the 50's. The Reid surface grinder would be in the same...

    Horizontal Mill advise wanted

    So, you don't think the directional feed popping out would be that big of an issue on mill listed on e-bay?

    Horizontal Mill advise wanted

    I am looking for an older horizontal mill with a vertical head attachment. This is for non-production work. I am new to metalworking. While I am a new member to the board, I have appreciated the knowledge of this forum for quite awhile. My question is, What models to look for and to avoid? I...

    Reid 2B Surface Grinder

    I haven't seen any references to manuals online or hard copy. I also have a Reid 2B that I am working on ( starters were toasted ). The y feed mechanism seems to work and I would be happy to send you some snapshots if that would help. This forum has been such a help to me, it was nice to see...
