  1. Anyone know the weight of Brown and Sharpe 818 Dial-a-Size

    I am going to pick up a grinder in the morning and the seller isn't sure on the weight - he estimated 1,500-2,000 pounds. Sound about right? I am thinking at that weight I can just haul it in the bed...

    Check your control wiring. Perhaps you have a NO switch when you need an NC or vice versa. IIRC you might be able to change this by moving a wire. And also, what is the HP of the drill press motor?...

    Re: using all the horsepower; 10 HP really isn't all that much if you're doing any larger work. The larger the diameter you're cutting on and the higher the SFM you're running, the more horsepower it...

    If you're like many of us, those fellows who say "get a job in a different field" won't even register on your radar because you love making things and working with your hands. So if that's the case, ...

    It sounds like the machine is already running, so no VFD costs associated with the change. If the energy cost difference is that negligible it's probably not worth the time and effort.

    I think this is your mechanism. Patents are useful since they often describe the workings of the mechanism:

    "Because China import" probably sums it up. It sounds like a manufacturer's defect to me. No warranty? Otherwise you're going to have to have the tools to actually monitor the output if you want to...

    Yeah it's easy to make a quick response without thinking that doesn't make sense when you read it later, especially in the morning. I've done it more than a few times, we all have.

    150mm long is only 6"... I'd think you could just stick it halfway in the chuck and turn half, then turn it around and turn the other half easy peasy. Not THAT bad of a L to D ratio if you do it half...

    Yeah I was just about to comment that the V was unnecessary. Excellent use of the flat, good thinking.

    Yes I get all that. I am still missing hardware that is necessary to really use dynamic braking in my application. The resistor and switch are hardware... I do appreciate the elaboration though.

    No, I dont. The E0 drives have no internal braking transistor, it's an external-only on the E0, so you have to add it on. For dynamic braking you need the transistor to turn on only when the DC bus...

    Maybe he should send the mics instead. At least you could sell them. Then you could send him a gift wrapped kick in the nuts.

    Nobody said that it did, nor argued otherwise! The only claim made was that a plate bent to 90° could potentially pass a parallelism spec of .002" but NOT a flatness spec of .002".
