  1. Thanks for your thoughts. Yeah, my Wells saw...

    Thanks for your thoughts. Yeah, my Wells saw already includes bolt holes on the back that can be used to attach my infeed roller stand, so if the stop were attached to the roller stand, you'd have a...
  2. Curiosity - anyone seen a home brew solution for a CNC saw stop system?

    I don’t have time to do anything about this right now, but curiosity got to me as I was looking at my saw the other day. I’ve seen some really nice looking commercial setups (TigerStop, maybe) for...

    The clear span is 33'. The columns, which I unfortunately wasn't part of the project when they were being poured, are spaced every 11.5' (10m span, columns every 3.5m)

    The two ends of the building...
  4. OT: Anyone ever run across a simple table of steel roof truss loads?

    I have a question. It's probably better suited to WeldingWeb, but in general I think PM answers have more informed math, lol.

    About once a year, someone asks my fab students to do a roof....

    Interesting. Tell me more, if you're willing. Living in a culture that isn't my own has trained me not to make snap judgements about ways of doing things that are different than what I'm used to....

    There were different outlets that had a connector like you're describing, that are meant to grab a cable directly. Like a cable gland. This, though, I think is made to accept conduit to make a liquid...

    Something that looks similar to the pic I posted? The German version of Home Depot had nothing similar!

    Something like this, but with a thread that mates to the one in the outlet, no?

    EU members: electrical conduit question

    In prep for building a new shop in West Africa, I'm collecting the parts to do the electrical install (after the output of the off-grid solar). I'm looking for a part, which I thought I would find...
  10. The hole needs to end up pretty snug and in the...

    The hole needs to end up pretty snug and in the right spot, but like I said, I'll need to put the plates on the mill to drill other features anyway, so I don't mind putting the boring head on to...
  11. Laser tolerance - how much to undersize holes I'll need to bore?

    I'm ordering the first parts I've ever had lasered. (It's the plates for the body of the ring roller in my other thread.) I'm used to the angularity of a cnc plasma cut edge, which is a lot in 1"...
  12. Yes, and auto downfeed (but is a super slow one...

    Yes, and auto downfeed (but is a super slow one meant for steel). That amount of down pressure those saws use, on aluminum, won't leave a very clean edge, perhaps?
  13. Thanks for the input everyone. I realized that...

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    I realized that the 10" saw is a 5/8" arbor and the 14" is 1", so I'm going to have to pick. I think a 12" blade with a 1" arbor on the abrasive saw could be a good...
  14. Perhaps my question wasn't clear. I wasn't asking...

    Perhaps my question wasn't clear. I wasn't asking whether a circular saw cut would be good enough quality. It will. What I was asking was the best way to make the circular saw cuts, given that the...
  15. 150 cuts in 2" x 1/2" 6061 flat bar - best sawing option?

    I have the normal array of bandsaws plus a cold saw (coming). I have 150 parts to do, but I don't want a bandsawn edge and would prefer not to mill post sawing, because the length is ±1/16, so...
  16. Thanks all, I did find the old pic, the one I...

    Thanks all, I did find the old pic, the one I kept was the 254M. (I think because I didn't know anything about them and that one had "master" in the name, so it seemed like it must be the better one,...

    That's a good idea. It raises and interesting question. I've never gone looking for 25-50-75mm blocks, but I suppose someone must make them. An application like this where you're subtracting an inch...

    Perfect, thank you so much - that's exactly what I was hoping for.

    Thanks everyone, I have my initial design, and my gears all ordered.

    I'll pick this thread back up in six months or so when the shipping container gets over to Africa and I start the build!
  20. Anyone know what stock to make a big bending brake?

    I'm out of space in the shipping container I have going over to my non-profit fab school in west Africa, but one of the big items on my wish list was a bending brake. I do have space for plate...

    Thank you all for the information. I'll watch some youtube videos to catch up, but I appreciate all of your ideas to get me started. Sometimes it's hard to do a good search when you don't know what...

    Thanks, everyone. It's either a C454M or 254M. I can't remember which I sold and which I sent, but am looking through pictures to confirm. I would've kept whichever I thought was nicer, lol. If I...
  24. Tooling a Starrett Master Height Gage - what uses?

    I have another rookie question...
    The list of tools that I've gotten cheap at auctions, because lots of shops have them, without knowing what they do, and then later learned about them and really...

    Are you guys liking the 1 yr glass, 2 yr glass, or 6 yr magnetics?
