    I have one of those horizontal saws from MSC. I bought it back when it was ENCO. It has been pretty reliable over the last 15 years. I have cut 7” solid round, 10” pipe, 1/4” key stock, and...

    I have one that just lost the shuttle. I have pushed it out into the yard for now, but not sure if there is much hope left for that poor old girl. Post some pictures if you can

    The bolt gurus beat me to it on the many points against this. That being said, putting it in the lathe and going after it with a boring bar will be hands down the quickest way for you to get it done.

    If it’s DC, simply reversing the polarity will reverse the motor. I think reversing the leads will also change direction of an AC motor

    I have the same machine with the original FANUC control. Most common tools are a good profiling/turning tool, a grooving/part-off tool, a couple boring bars of different length and diameter, and a...

    It has 3 bearings on the shaft. One needle bearing at the front which is mounted in the turret housing and also allows the shaft to slide axially during indexing. The other two are combination needle...

    Buy a used Bridgeport. You can pick one up for nearly what a good new drill press costs, and it will out perform almost any drill press available.

    I do have a eutectic spray metal torch set and materials. However since I rarely use it, and the fact that it is in close proximity to those threads, I’m not sure if I want to tackle that project on...

    Thank you Mr. King, I’ll check them out. The shaft is supposed to be 40mm there and the thread in front of it is 40mm as well, so turning it down and pressing on a hard sleeve is not really a viable...

    Turret spindle repair

    I am working on repairing the upper turret on my Miyano KNC-45. It has been having trouble indexing since I got it almost 3 years ago. The solution at the time was to not index it. Faced with a...

    Trying to cut slots with a drill press? I don’t know that it can be done. At least not without destroying the drill press in the process. And the workpiece too. If you don’t have the proper...

    I concur with Rob F., it is not feasible to turn 3/4 round tube into 1-1/4 square tube without a substantial amount of equipment and research. Maybe even a wand.

    Sub it out to a shop with a machine more suited to smaller workpieces. A 12” chuck is way overkill. By the time it spools up to proper rpm (which your machine may not be able to reach) a smaller...
