Headstock refurb: Flex-Hones to lend

(Just realized this sticky was here so reposting)

I recently rebuilt--tried anyway--my headstock and purchased these two Flex-Hones:

flex-hone.jpg


These are McMaster #'s 4424A32 & 4424A28, 2" and 1.5", 180 grit. Cost $47.93

As far as I can tell they have a lot of life left in them and I don't want to sell them in case what I did doesn't last; so, if they are of use to anyone here I'd like to lend them. Just cover postage and return them within a couple of weeks.

From what I gathered online and from Flex-Hone these aren't meant to rebore the journals, just smooth them. They were pretty easy to use.

Disclaimer: I'm a beginner and spent some time researching what to do after my spindle seized. After a few hours of running everything seems to be fine--but I have little experience and maybe am not too picky or just don't know how to check well enough so no claims are being made that these will work for you or even that they are the right way to go.

Just wanted to try and give something back for all that I learn here and the help received.

Need #1 Morse Taper Reamer

I recently purchased a spindle with a #1 Morse taper and need to "clean-up" the taper. Does anybody have a #1 Morse reamer that they would be willing to loan. Shipping should be about $5.00 each way and I don't see that they can be bought for anything near $10.00.

Thank you, John.

Wow!

I'm new here and just wanted to say that this is quite a group. Why can't more folks be more like machinists!
