    In fact I didn't, they were slightly antagonizing but nothing out of the ordinary for this forum. It's funny, I was gonna mention those posts but I figured you would see. You should look around, there's plenty of threads like these for you to hone your skills on.

    I'm wondering if you would have better luck getting an answer on the Bridgeport subforum. Those guys know Bridgeport.

    Posting that question in the general section is like telling a woman's studies professor to iron your shirt while your manhold is dangling out of your unzipped fly.

    Actually, I think the OP's mill is well within the guidelines of the forum. His attitude is the problem. I've caught my share of shit on this forum. I don't let it bother me and don't respond in a way that derails the thread. Consequently I've received tons of help and advice I couldn't have gotten anywhere else.

    Forum rules on machines: Machinery Discussion Guidelines

    Note this is the is the Manufacturing Forum, not the home shop machinist forum. And while all levels of "how to" metalworking or woodworking questions regarding technique are welcome here, we are drawing the line at discussing manual "home shop grade" Asian machine tools and hand tools.

    Note I said "home shop grade" Larger and/or higher quality Asian machines that might be used in manufacturing or job shop setting are ok to discuss.

    The discouragement of HSM grade Asian machine discussion is partially because they have all ready been discussed to death here, and partically because they are not used (or at shouldn't be) in any manufacturing/job shop envirnoments.

    For these machines, there are other sites such as the HSM Magazine forum, Chaski forum and various Yahoo Groups that are more appropriate.

    ========================

    UPDATE-

    Also not allowed for discussions on PM now-

    *Atlas/ Craftsman/Dunlap products - anywhere

    *Sherline and Taig - anywhere, including CNC versions

    *Hacksaws- anywhere

    *Horizontal shapers - Antique Machinery forum only

    I'm with you on most of what you said.
    I'm just saying that the OP has the right to reply to an aggressive post like everybody else. I'm not sure who has the thicker skin, The OP by replying to a dumb post or those on this forum who can't accept it.

    Thin skin are those who get offended by some words like JET or BILLET, for me, I just don't care if someone use those words, but if someone here can't read these words without going crazy, man leave this forum.

    Thanks
    OR a source for jet parts that is not going to rape me. I need a couple of knobs and shaft for a jet lathe also.
    Just an FYI, in case you didnt see this earlier. Most of the parts from the BP wont fit in a Jet. Secondly, that part for a BP is $250 so it isnt saving you much.

    I welded mine back together. Preheat entire piece, quick weld, slow cool. It does not have a real load on it. If yours broke like mine, it was one ear. It did not distort enough to have to mess with any of the through holes other than the one for the ear itself.. the least critical.
    Some guys would silicon bronze tig "weld" it together. It is more like gluing it back together as you don't melt the base metal in this case, but plenty strong enough for what it does.
    Or, you could make one out of billet.

    wow, you guys really had wadded up panties with this thread.
    You all spent way more time pondering the rights, wrongs, rules, and who was good and bad than I did.
    Thanks for the help, for those that helped.
    Mill is running great!

    PS... if "professionals" like a couple of the clowns on here is what I must be to be "professional", I never will be professional.
