    I have a large collection of speed indicators that counted revolutions. The Stewart Warner, however, is basically the same as a dash mounted tach and uses a spinning magnet as best as I can...

    Yeah low batteries can trigger odd things in newer cars. We don't drive our 2014 Buick Encore very often and when I went to exercise it a few weeks ago the battery was dead. A quick jump and she was...

    I don't think I have ever heard one that wasn't fairly loud. The commercial dust collector units use large diameter hoses and are somewhat quieter but your small blast cabinet is probably set up for...

    I'm thinking an auger is going to jam. Chip conveyors are typically small belt systems. I know you are across the country but here is a beautiful 3" wide conveyor for $16 at HGR in Cleveland. Small...

    Hmm, I have never been to an auction where the price wasn't known. How could it not be known, you are right there and they are calling it out, even if it is a phone or Internet bid. Are you talking...

    Well, I've done hundreds of such flares with no problems. AS mentioned, the flaring tool must be for stainless. The floor mounted, motor driven flaring machine we used for all critical work used a...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don't know about the certified crates. U-Line has a good selection, and even HGR has a few in stock that may work. Meanwhile the buyer located a shipper with a good...

    Although I am a big fan of the Sanfords, there are several small British grinders that may be easier to buy. The Herbert Junior, the Eagle and the Superior are very nice machines with small...

    Whew, what a lot of hand work! An amazing amount of effort to mark, drill, ream, sleeve, and re-ream all those holes. You would think they could have powered the final reaming since it was in the...

    It sounds like you are getting good beads all the way into the filter? That shouldn't be happening. Do you have a reclaimer in the system? It does a good job of collecting the beads and allowing only...

    I think PriddyShitty has it right. The doors are the weak point. Some manufacturers even offer a trough on the side under the door to catch what falls out, but then you have to clean the trough. The...

    This early wind tunnel is actually tunnel #2, the Variable Density Tunnel. It looks like a boiler because it is one (sort of)! To understand better, if you test a 1/20 scale model, the Reynolds...

    The slot is just to hold the shaft while you loosen the outer flange (left handed). There is no taper, the wheel just slides on the 1/2" shaft. You could make an adapter to 1 1/4" but the machine...

    There really isn't any spindle adapter. Just an inner flange and a 1/2"-13 - LH threaded outer flange to tighten against the wheel. The wheel fits directly on the 1/2" shaft. No need to balance 4"...
