    I doubt that any of it bothers the O.P. in the slightest. It's more likely that he exquisitely feels spud's pain better than the rest of us, having just finished a restoration on a similar machine to...

    That is tough. Your brother in law is an idiot... No offense. He should have at least asked you what to do with the stuff. That's not the kind of decision you make without asking.

    WTF?! Was this divorce related or something? Somebody would have had to pull me off that guy.

    Don't care for the swiss army aspect at all. Post something like this in a pro- level machinist forum and you're going to get a little bit of a smackdown for things like that.

    There is no way in...

    I know some of the Mattisons have a tapered solid bearing that uses an oil film... That could cause a lockup if the clearance isn't right or if it's running out of oil. Not sure what yours uses, look...

    No, check the last sentence of the O.P. again. Specifically asking about lathe centers and drill chuck there. And reducers are always useful.

    There is a media for blasting that is round ceramic bead, might be useful. Probably not a great idea to have sharp edged ceramic, as Mark alluded to. Alternatively, you might try round glass bead.

    Yeah, if I can just avoid big holes in the wear surface like the color map shows I'll be happy. I plan to mostly use mine for deburring, rough flattening and knife sharpening.

    It affects it the same, but the traverse speeds have to be higher for multipoint in any case.

    I don't think they are tapered pins in the pic you're talking about. They are nails - one end is the nail shaft and the other is the nail head.

    Milled it, then ground. I was able to hold it right in the vise for milling, and on the magnetic chuck for grinding. It's a Buehler belt grinder, and they had the platen already nicely squared and...

    Yeah it might be possible, but calibrating it would be a bitch. It would have to learn the existing surface texture and would probably require some pretty hefty computing power compared to what the...

    If the bearings have high clearance you can get away with a little more interference before it causes trouble. It sounds like you found the issue.

    The plate will be clamped on after it is machined, when the part is in use. That's why he's saying it doesn't matter if the part springs a bit during machining... So yes, a ½" saw arbor should be...

    This is for wheel dressing on one of the older models, not sure if it would be adaptable for yours on the periphery of the wheel or not:

    I used an older 2B Black Diamond at a shop I worked in for many years. It didn't have a built in dresser for the O.D. of the wheel either - I never even knew they actually made one for those older...

    This shouldn't be that difficult with the right tooling. The question is, are you prepared to pay for it. It's a shame that you weren't able to procure the tooling from the shop that shut down before...

    I get that, but once (or even twice, but 6! Times?) is enough... It's obvious that the machine is probably as hurt as his pride. And yes, some photos would be helpful.

    Talk about a case of piling on... Sheesh, poor fellow probably feels bad enough as it is. I'm glad no one got hurt. About the only thing to do is start disassembling and check piece by piece.
