    It is so you don't hork down on it like a 300 pound gorilla.

    Thanks anyways John.
    I believe my machine was only used to grind rubber rolls
    at Kodak, and not much else. I think it might have been
    made around the time of the machinist's strike at Brown

    Could you please look my serial number up for me?
    Many...

    Brake rotors are turned machining both faces at once.
    Something about being uniform thickness is more important
    than run-out for not having pulsations in the brake pedal.

    To be technical,
    grease that will flow has a thickness of
    #0 or #00. Most grease is #2 and as you

    as a lube for your...

    I have a 17" Colchester (Mastiff??) made I believe in 1975.

    Plumb your air trunk line a foot off the floor
    and bring your taps up. This keeps water out.
