    If its a poor design, you will find yourself chasing the next weakest part. Forever. Think of Sisyphus, rolling his rock uphill.

    Thats a cute little guy. Looks like a solid aluminum steering wheel with a factory Brodie knob. Gotta love the air scoops on the sides. If you can change the engine yourself, check with Grindstaff...

    The problem is the square footage it takes up. Its tough to pencil out today's building values when you are installing a 80 year old machine. If you have lots of VTL work, you need a newer one than...

    It seems like every scrap dealer I've ever seen claims to pay the highest price around. I guess that means all but one of them are lying. Why don't you post your prices and let us judge?

    In well pumps the eductor would be part of a system called a jet pump. I had no idea they would be used for dewatering, but an excellent solution for low head discharge.

    Have you checked out "Phil in Montana"'s G & L? Its probably the closest boring mill to you that is for sale, and he seems to be a motivated seller.

    Yes, my spindle is drilled for a drawbar. From what I've seen, only the longer BOSS series spindles weren't drilled.

  13. Erickson QC#30 complete spindle and toolholders for a Series I manual Bridgeport

    I sold my Series I Bridgeport to someone who wanted the R8 spindle, so I am left with the QC spindle. It was purchased new, bare and I installed new bearings. It probably has fewer than 500 hours,...

    You need an adjustable wedge to support the mandrel against the bottom of the tubing, and a support for the bottom of the tubing. Then your mandrel strength doesn't matter much.

    To the op, you are right. The hammer is the best tool. First apply it to your colleagues. Then I would straighten it as best I could. If it didn't work acceptably well I would replace it. Its...

    Are you strong enough to bend your existing bar, or is this a commercial product development? Look into cut knurling and I believe you can knurl heat treated bars.

    I think as fast as you can move the case will be fine. If that doesn't do it, you probably need more amp*turns. A tighter coil may be helpful as well.

    On edit: Looks like we were typing at the...

    A little above your budget, but there is a Smart & Brown listed a little lower on the page that is even on your side of the border.

    To demag something with AC, you must taper the magnetic flux to zero. Sure, you can use a variac, but not everyone has one. So instead you remove the part from the magnetic flux. Distance will...

    After you put more money into the Grizzly it will be non-returnable. After you go to use it you will probably find other problems that are only evident with usage. Then what are you going to do? ...

    Every wood plant has a cyclone and bag house. In spite of working with a non-sparking material, they all, sooner or later, catch the system on fire.

    The OP was not an attack on wind power exclusively, as I grouped natural gas in there as well. It was a rant on having third world services when we need a first world grid the most. If there is an...
