    Daryl, Sure makes me so proud to see scraping like that from one of the kids :-) I saw something on here I think it was last week and it was referring to someone selling scraping tools in MI and as I looked at the long list I figured it was you?? They said it was in MI...I figured who else in MI that can scrape that good? lol

    So your selling some surplus or are you slowing retiring? Did Ed Jr. tell you I met him and his dad at the IMTS show in the Dapra Booth over 40 years ago? He also got some lessons over the years at the show....lol. Back then he and his Dad Ed Sr. who was a service tech for Pratt & Whitney and his dad could hand scrape 40 PPI. When Ed Sr retired he started ES Dyjack Co. and that's when his fun began. At one time ESD Company was the largest BIAX distributor selling scraping tools then anyone on the USA. I consider Ed Jr. one of the kids too....lol

    The photo is of the bottom of a set of safety parallels. They are tall parallels with a wide base that makes them more stable and therefore safer to use. The interlaced fingers allow them to be used close together and means they take up less room when stored.

    Thanks Rich! Yes, we have had many conversations about you, lol. I keep going back for new brushes, and keep thinking these should last longer, but time certainly flies when you are having fun.

    Charles, you nailed it! Those turned out real nice and I actually showed the guy with a tenth indicator that they were zero, end to end and matching. I looked up a patent number and found it online. Will try to find the image and post it here. These parallels were manufactured by Magic City Mach. Tool Co. in Muncie Indiana, 1940's.

    The yellow vee blocks I probably had over 100 hours into them. True 90 degree and every dimension matched to one ten thousandths on both from the bottom key-way. I think I sold them for $50, talk about a labor of love.

    BIAX says when the brushes wear out to soon, the wiring to the outlet or your extension cord is to light or small. Try using a bigger wire size and see what happens.

    Default Just a couple of Fadal tunups

    Hello to all, I’m new to the forum but am really enjoying the content and all the information available. Currently started on one of my Fadals replacing the ball screws, turned out getting a little deeper than I thought. Ended up doing a complete turcite replacement also. While checking out the geometry the top of the saddle had about .005 wear,warp and upon removing the saddle the turcite was loose on the bottom and coming out and some missing. With the mill kind of stuck in th corner of the shop and my sel being one of stubbornness and I’m going to do this myself I watched the Russians scrape-grinding hard ways. So I practiced on a couple of bars and dove in head first in shallow water. 3145fcee-7420-43f0-a1a3-a2c3d93ddb25.jpge7feb0cc-a5e0-49f2-8294-fdbba9f137ac.jpg a couple of in process photos this worked surprisingly it worked quite well. I lapped in the ways after spring them to get a smooth surface for the turcite and it came out quite nice. I am fortunate to have a wide array of machines I can use for rebuilding machine parts as I do a lot of machineing on large Diesel engines along with job shop work.

    Hello,

    Just to say something about what I've been scraping! I have not done much over the last couple of years, but a triangular 32" new old stock fresh of the planer showed up on the equivalent of Craig's list for 20€ which was too good to pass up! So I scraped in in one side and made some handles for it. I also milled scraped and painted the 12" that I bought from Kev after the 2017 class at Andrew Mawson's. In the last Photo, there is also the 72" that I bought From Graham Stabler last spring.

    Hi Richard,

    Retirement suits me, it's just I seem to have less time than ever! I'm trying to work my way through a backlog of projects. I've been a bit bogged down with building work on my workshop/home, never ending! I'm working towards the rebuild of my Edgwick Lathe hence the straight edges! I intend to do it a bit at a time, as I don't want it immobilized too long! I will probably have to build a sledge to run a grinder to re-grind the bed ways! This will take time! Lots to do!!
    All the best, Matthew
