    The best lathe ever made, vintage or otherwise,
    is the one that you own outright,
    or have a clear plan working to that end,

    that does the job asked of it,

    when it’s asked.

    OT fathers 1968 Chevy k20 selling price?

    Still dissenting. I’m still certain this truck will move quickly enough. I’m certain at nothing less than a grand.

    I’ll be a dissenter. Chevy C/K trucks are only growing in value right now. Square-body prices have doubled in the last few years. I prefer that body style, but the earlier trucks are in demand as...

    Doubtful you’ll find a single phase transformer in the size you’ll need. That said, there’s no reason you HAVE to power something off all three legs.

    First off, it’s “YOU’RE”. You Are.

    You can’t rain on my parade any more than my bosses ALWAYS do. I’m sure there’s a world I’m missing. The VFDs I have on order were recommended to me by a couple of guys at Fanuc.
