    I may have missed it, but where in Ohio?

    (Not sure if I'm asking to lend moral or physical support, or to make sure I'm outta town that day...)

    From the opioid crisis, I think that 'doctor shopping' is frowned upon, if not illegal. Hmm... But that puts Trump in good company with arrested-but-not-prosecuted OxyContin abuser Rush Limbaugh.

    Look at Peabody Noise Control spring-isolated feet. They'll keep it from walking away, but isolate well when loaded correctly. (Correct loading is key to all isolation solutions.) Ballast may still...

    Interesting post, that generates two questions. Both of which may inadvertently reveal my lack of smarts.

    First, most of the Grade 8 stuff I see is probably case-hardened, as the center is not as...

    "Sure hope he numbered them."

    Diagonal line in red marker across the edge. If it's a huge stack, multiple lines in different colors.

    This means you total up your bill, add 3.5%, and charge that total to your customer.

    If you didn't add the 3.5%, 'you' would be paying it.
    If you do add the 3.5%, customer is paying it.

    Can you pick it up a little more and set it on I beams instead? Cheaper/more readily available used/rented. You'll have to secure them well to the base, as they won't be as constrained as the proper...

    Needs to be a disruption in the software/adjustment arena for hearing aids. Re-using them is difficult due to tie-ins with specific audiologists -- who aren't interested in sharing access and...

    On the 'can't cut old glass' thing -- I concur. I saved bunches of old window glass because I liked how wavy it was, and had multiple 100 year old windows that needed repairs. Could never cut the...

    May have been mentioned before, but get out your magnifying glass and read the fine print on the lamp's power supply. It may have a wide range of allowable input voltage -- up to and including your...

    Bet they start testing those hooks prior to crane use going forward. Wonder if "crane #2" was already in production -- or if there even is a #2.

    Square for me, too. Last I checked, they had a 'blended' rate that wasn't card-specific, which resulted in being able to accept Amex at a more affordable cut than other sources. Customer wanted to...

    So your commute would be to hop on the toolpost, engage the lead screw and motor on down the 'ways'.

    Timely post. I just resurrected a 1HP Jet grinder that had been disassembled for awhile. Don't recall noticing the blotters/washers when mounting wheel. I'll check.

    We first got one because that's how the various bits on a pop-up Starcraft camper (1977 vintage) were attached. Everything from outside skin and hold-downs to inside wood-to-wood joints. And as...

    Is it worth considering extending the shafts enough to put the traditional timing belt outside the hot zone? Additional space required, but no new systems, maintenance re-timing requirements, etc...

    Did some new regulations come into play recently, regarding dust/particulate control (mostly from grinders)? That might have an impact on what can be sold for pro use -- dust/vacuum shrouds...
