    Good idea, I'd be for it. (Much as I don't like the necessity of it, I am forced to agree that there *is* a necessity for it.)

    Need help IDing a weird panel switch

    Hi guys,

    I need help ID'ing a weird punch button switch off the power box for my hydraulic shear. (Peck, Stowe & Wilcox. Yeah, that old. )
    I'd guess 60's, at a bet.

    It's a sort of push...
  4. Wet widebelt sander: coolant mix? and other new owner questions.

    HI guys,

    So I found a used wet timesaver for not insane sums of coin. Yay. It arrived today, more-or-less un-smashed by the LTL guys. Bigger Yay.
    We're still sorting it all out, but it looks...

    HI Adam,
    I started out as a jeweler. I've taught it at the college level even. So I've polished more than my share of brass.
    If I were doing these, I'd prep the surface with a succession of...

    That has *got* to be a troll. (the Ebay listing)
    There's just too many keywords stuck into it that're clearly designed to get PM'ers goats.

  8. Timesaver vs. woodworkng widebelt. What's rotation got to do with it?

    HI guys,

    I'm looking for a small timesaver, or similar widebelt sander. Our parts max out at around 12" wide. Timesaver makes a 13, if you can find one. The next are 19's, and they exist, but...

    I'm not sure of the origin of this thread, since I just tumbled to it, but I've got a full, running (but currently in pieces) Heavy 9 that I could certainly part with, complete with a couple of...

    The first set of blocks died from semi natural causes. They started leaving bits of seal all over the place, but we caught them before they started shedding rollers. The machine has a really handy...
  12. Linear ways: replace just the trucks, or both trucks and rails?

    Greetings:
    I've got a Ganesh Cyclone 32CS, which is a sliding headstock twin spindle not-quite-exactly-a-swiss lathe.
    (no guide bushing, but otherwise, it acts like a Swiss.) It's not a Citizen,...

    I don't have a whole lot of time to reply, I'm just in the office checking something. (besides PM. God knows why I'm reading it now...)

    Greetings,

    Try checking your program axis. Some machines, especially multi-axes lathes like Swisses, have an axis call, (G17, G18, G19, for mine.) that sets up which axis things move in. So a...

    OK, I just went and looked at Tony's site for the Triplex. It's been a while.
    Looking at how the triplex did its threader versus how the mainline Ames machines did it, I don't think they shared any...

    Greetings all,

    As someone who's ended up with more Ames gear than any one person really should have, I can say a few things.
    A) the 2A collets were unique to the Triplex. The lathes, mills and...

    Greetings,

    I don't have a Triplex...yet. But I'm hunting for one, and sooner or later, the gods-of-the-scrounge will deliver.
    I've got 5 or 6 Ames lathes, and a mill, so the Triplex is all I...

    Greetings,

    I've got a Doosan VMC of that vintage (2007 DMV 3016 with a Fanuc 0iMB)
    They're great machines, and there are a couple of advantages to them.
    A) the 'Doosan' badged ones are the last...

    I'd be in.
    My sense is they need run parts too, not just the neck collars. But between the bunch here, we *can* (and probably have) made anything.

    Followup:
    If the disks are flat, 'up' climbing is going to cause a fair bit of chatter, since you're pulling up in to air. You *can* do it "down", and press into a jig face, but at that point, a...

    HI Christie,

    I thought about your problem on the drive home, and came up with a way to do it reasonably fast, on a basic 3 axis VMC, **without** expensive custom tapered end mills.

    It was hard...

    Greetings,

    I run a swiss with live tooling/poly milling capability.
    Yeah, you *could* do it on a machine like this, but looking at it, I think you're probably best served to do it on a standard 3...
