    Yes, this technique is used for in-process gauging of tapered bolts used in aerospace applications. There, the taper rates are limited to a few fixed ratios, so, instead of using a sine bar and gauge...

    Thanks guys. I found a French supplier for the originals, but they have a minimum order quantity that is a lot more than one each. Is there any issue with substituting, say, a 400 mAh battery for the...
  5. What's the skinny nowadays on replacement Dialog 4 batteries?

    I think at least the six-pack battery in the bottom of the console is getting tired. The control crashed a couple times lately without losing stored programs, but then it crashed hard enough last...

    The GT-27 is not wildly over-priced at $16k given the apparent light use. It's a little 2-axis gang tool machine probably with a Fanuc control competing with something like an OmniTurn. I have seen...

    Those fellows hanging hoists in the bottom two photos would give Arnold the Terminator a run for his money. They look like they've just raised a loaf of bread. Those must be the magnesium model hoist.

    Can you divide the ripple spacing by the traverse speed and see whether that equals the wheel rpm, with proper accounting for units? Thinking out loud, if the ripples are .25” apart and the traverse...

    I have 3 WJ200s used for 1- to 3-phase conversion. All are remote-controlled. I've never had a problem. The WJ200s have a nice feature, in which they only brake as much as possible without tripping...

    Both interferometers and encoder scales are getting into the sub-nanometer range nowadays in terms of best theoretical resolution. A Heidenhain LIP21 scale reader head will pick up a 0.03-nanometer...

    My Dad's 1952 N-D Handbook lists an 88502 bearing as a double-sealed 15-mm bore, 35-mm OD, 14.4-mm inner ring width, maybe 0.433" outer ring width and [email protected]" balls. The width is probably oddball...

    3/8 seems way too large. No way would my Hamilton turn a 3/8 drill and actually cut. You’d also lose a couple inches of headroom. Mine has a 1/8” Albrecht, which seems about right. I have other...

    I have one. As Larry says, the ratchet is for setting the handle position and the screw can adjust how easy it is to ratchet or to lock it.

    HF's "Daytona" models are decent. They are the same as SnapOn's apart from stylistic tweaks. They allegedly both come from the same factory.
