    One awkward aspect of the flu vaccine development business is that it's impossible for them to ever be completely right. That is, until there's a time machine to go forward and see what strains...

    Your foundation for decision making ("I got a shot once ..") or ("I know multiple people who have gotten sick ...") or using opioid manufacturers as substantiation probably says everything. That is,...

    Probably because it would take so much heat the process makes it a real PITA. You can't do it with a torch. You'd heat a local area up to temp but adjacent areas of the casting and shim won't be...

    I'm not going to make a recommendation for anyone since they'll do what they want regardless. Just my personal experience and perspective.

    I grew up in one of those shit hole countries our...

    Or, could that be a casting defect that was welded up before grinding. It almost looks like a patch on the that face of the way that's a slightly different color.

    Wouldn't this also depend on the number of teeth in the gears?

    A search through lathes.co.uk might turn it up. I looked through listings A-G designated Italian without a match but it's likely there somewhere if you spend the time. One liability of searching...

    One option. The sleeve is a friction fit on the micrometer body so it can be rotated slightly. Knowing this you might be able to wangle it back and forth a bit while exerting pressure to slightly...

    I think he's just suggesting filling the gap between base and body so there shouldn't be a (lack of) friction problem. Just a shortcut to getting the shims right. It assumes that parallelism is...

    Wallace can verify that, along with support from the faithful Grommit.

    Heat treat regimens can also generate realignments such as the proprietary Meehanite or ductile iron varieties. It's still probably to the point to cool down slowly rather than toss them from the...

    That's really interesting. I wouldn't expect that much no matter how much stress was left. You'd think a casting stressed like that might just blow up sitting in the back lot aging.

    Perhaps it's...

    It couldn't be hard to make, and maybe why you don't see them in the catalogs. A piece of stock with one hole this way for the stem one one hole that way where the lug would mount.

    Well it would honor some who deserved it and possibly save a few from an embarrassing gaff.

    Hang them up and whack them for several minutes with a two by four.

    At least that's what one contributor swears will work.

    No, there really is a place for cheap indicators. You set those up first and do a check. Not a dimension check. If the first indicator isn't smashed, you go for dimension. :D

    Of course if you're contemplating graduating a dial for metric dimension moves with an imperial pitch screw or vice versa that's a whole different calculation.

    Tell us if that's your problem and...

    The divisions relate to the lead of the thread, that is, how far the slide moves in one rotation of the dial. So, assuming the graduations are marking thousandths of an inch, the 200 dial will move...

    Yup, my mistake.

    According to my informant, the Graf Spee was damaged enough she couldn't go out and face battle so put into port. Argentina, as a third party would allow repairs only to...

    In odd encounters, I met a woman not long back whose father was a diesel mechanic on the Bismark. An interesting story. Crew were stranded in Argentina after the scuttling. Not POW's exactly but...

    And recovering from the cold, yet. Glad you could DRAG out but how do you COPE? :D

    Great! Well you've got that question licked. That has some parallels (no pun intended) to other synchronization schemes.

    That looks good and I hope it works as well as intended. I have a question in my mind about synchronization of cylinders. Hydraulically, if they're all attached to a manifold at the same pressure,...
