    I tried to grind down a Deckel 27mm arbour to 1", it broke through a layer of what could have been case hardening. It was soft as butter underneath, hardened cutters were putting deep scratches in...

    As mentioned above, the motor is coming out anyway, find a good motor shop and bring it to them. You have lots of options, large HP single phase, rewire the motor (the price might be reasonable),...

    For anyone looking at a Sanford, note that wear is a very, very critical concern. Take the front cover off (four fasteners) and inspect the ways and vertical frame. Grind a few sample pieces. On the...

    There were more issues. Wear in the main vertical frame was severe, maybe five to ten thou and uneven from left to right and top to bottom. One feature of this machine is a lack of adjustment to take...

    I used to go to a Mennonite fab shop around here, the whole place had a dirt floor but it was as hard as concrete. I asked how they did it, a guy said they compacted the dirt mixed with oil, using...

    Most people's core strength is poor, even some weightlifters. Try one Yoga class and you will see what I mean. As mentioned above, it is great you are thinking about this now. Poor core strength...

    Yes, that last comment is critical too. Don't apply procedures for one customer and not all the others. Your quality program must apply to everything that goes out the door.

    One more thing jumps to mind: what is your procedure if and when there IS a part out of spec? Have a defined Quarantine area for your ‘bad’ parts. Above all, do not hint that you achieve quality...

    "I've been in your situation more than once and it can be done by writing a few pages on how your shop does what it does. Do it yourself or it'll end up as costly rubbish." Correct! If your not...

    There is something that hit me the second I saw this video, there are not enough people in the crowd to create competition and drive up the prices. Poor attendance is the reason for the low prices. I...

    "I feel a little greedy or like a hoarder because I do have a bunch of Rivett stuff that could help others."

    This is a very admirable thought of yours, it reminds me of a buddy who is a Harley...

    These are all good comments, here are a few more thoughts:


    Try to think in reverse; you are 88 years old, in an old age home, what is so special that you want to keep for then? If you are lucky,...

    Works well, one part is on the wood stove inside and one is outside. By the way, Fahrenheit and Celsius scales cross-over at minus 40, and the old-timers up North would say a good test for...

    Believe it or not, a scrolling four-jaw chuck securely holds a six-sided bar too, try it out.
    And it still holds round bar, with the additional holding power of an extra jaw vs. a three-jaw chuck.

    Many of the Kimble variable speed motors were originally used on printing presses; they were good producers of ozone, sparks and unusual sounds. Delightful to use and the variable speed is useful.
