    Hybrid : Llambrich

    LOVE mine! John Welden twigged PM to it, several years ago!

    There's even a Chinese copy, its even well made, and it even actually works. DAMHIKT!

    But COVID and all sorta saturated the market for Chinese exports, so I have ceased buying Chinese goods temporarily. About 40 years should see me out?
    What ever happened to John Weldon?

    Dunno. Busy as Hell?

    He was firin up a new facility about the time he dropped off PM's radar.

    Equipping it with Llambrich Hybrid chucks is why I remember.

    Wasn't much activity after he was one of the instigators in a poll trying to ban some other member. Which went contrary to his expectations.

    Default Hey...

    Hi guys... I feel stupid breaking into this discussion, but I am struggling trying to find out HOW to make a NEW posting for some help I'm looking for with a quick change gear box on my 10" Logan. I've searched high and low, used the FAQ and still cannot find how to post a call for help. Can someone reading this reply let me know HOW one starts a new post/thread. Sorry for being so stupid.

    i think you can start a thread only after a certain number of posts. someone might know how many.

    He took his ball and went home.

    I don't recall exactly what drove it, but he decided he was better off without the razzing he got here (I think they were making fun of him flying kites for fun?) and he just quit logging in. Shame, because I really enjoyed his posts.

    Does this help? You should be able to start a new thread right away. (Most spammers come in like that.......)

    Parting tools: have you ever used 2 whole boxes of inserts in 10 days on the same 2 parts?
    Only when I didn't see the "M04" instead of "M03."

    Vangard

    We've all been there.

    As an apprentice I stuck a dry, too clean #9 B&S cutter in a mill spindle and spent a full day doing all the usual nonsense

    Eventually I had to drill it out with carbide, slew the head to 1/2 the included angle of the taper and bore the rest out. Note to self do not clean B&S tapers and tooling with Acetone. It's all about recovery and fixing mistakes.

    And "take solace in knowin: It all pales next to the guy in a nearby city (name withheld) who bored the spindle out of a perfectly fine DS&G lathe while chatting up the boss... now that's a VERY VERY BAD DAY where no graceful recovery is possible.
