    Dang I must be a scam artist. I fit the profile. Not only was I born a newb and machining is my main hobby, I am an engineer and have a license to prove it. Despite being a hobbiest and engineer,...

    What is that thing that looks like a Ridgid brand shop vac fanning the forge? It's an orange thing up on a shelf on the rear wall above and to the right of the forge hood.

    Your hydraulic problem sure sounds electrical to me. Could be the rotary switch or any wire leading to or from it, between the console and column. It's hard to imagine it's the pressure switch or the...

    I think if you press and hold the on/off button for several seconds, the unit resets and the blinkiness goes away. One of mine just did the same thing. You will want to re-check zero if you do the...

    I'll probably substitute a modern 30-mm pushbutton. The existing hole is 35-mm-diam, which is an oddball size nowadays, so I'll turn up an adapter ring. The hole is round and not square like the...

    Aciera square push buttons?

    One of the push buttons on my Aciera F5 caved in yesterday. Anybody have recommendations for a replacement? I see lots of round switches, but am coming up empty on industrial square switches.

    I would expect the oil film to give up long before the babbitt was in danger of turning to mush. I would start to be concerned about the babbitt at 300 degF and really worry above 500 degF.

    Gary Aragon, machinery dealer in San Leandro, has a partner Mike, who moves machines. He’s worth a call. I am not sure whether he’ll go as far as Sacramento.

    Does this have any relation to present-day Weir Minerals and their range of pumps? I have seen new (within the last 3-5 years) Weir centrifugal slurry pumps in ore beneficiation plants.

    I have worked on vintage DC gearless machines from 1928. It's gorgeous stuff in everyday use, and I consider it a privilege to have been up close.

    If you are open to all comers, you may want to have them sign a liability waiver, sad to say. I have been aware of too many cases where someone operating a 4th-hand piece of junk machine worn within...

    Funny, I have a baby Hamilton High Speed drill press out of Mare Island, plus a few chunks of HY-130 hull plate. The latter is TOUGH steel that machines to a nice finish.
