    Interesting reading the old posts. I will ignore the spammer. I have a major gas pipe line though our property. It is a 32 inch serving San Antonio. Owned by CPS of San Antonio. Early on we trenched...

    Its funny, I grew up with erector sets and hand tools, I thought Legos led to the demise of mechanical skills. From the earlier comments I guess I was very wrong.

    Wilson Appraisal District (WAD) for short did send me a form with zero as the estimated value on both wells this year. With all their excesses in the first couple of years they will still be ahead if...

    Your right about the Traub, less stuff going on so it would be quieter. A live saw on the rear cross slide for cutting off would make less burrs if they have not already figured that one out.

    In an ad for an appraiser a few years ago, they specified ability to appraise machine shops. At the time there were only 2 other shops in the county so they had eyes on raising our valuations. If...

    I saw this thread late but they do allow reasonable depreciation in Texas. I think I put $15000.00 on my rendition for our Hardinge GT. That is about what the used ones are selling for and they have...

    Yeah, that is pretty fast, and I do run inserts in my CNC lathes, just never as fast as your example. On the really dumb single spindle screw machine I have had 7 tools in the cut at one time, that...

    Think a CNC is dumb, watch a screw machine for a while. Would not even think of using a carbide insert on mine. Too slow on the RPMs and an insert pulling out or crumbling would be a disaster.

    I bought a 106-102 0-1 mike with non-rotating spindle for $25.00 from the back of a co worker's trunk in the early 70s. Back then I wondered what the source was because he had a bunch of them brand...

    How did your get the #11 clip out without pulling the rear bearing? Did pulling the #8 sleeve give you access? If so the #19 bearing cover looks to me like it will have to be loosened for the front...
