    And I was being facetious, somewhat like Cole's pocket protectors. A "fad" - An intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something.

    Those horse, water, wind or steam powered line drive machine tools were a real fad for most shops. I guess they were all marketing hype as well. Then there's high carbon cutting tools, and sperm...

    Yes at the simple end there's generally two systems that work the best with 3 ph machines and no available 3 ph to where the machine is. Rotary phase converters and VFD's. Neither removes the...

    It's not a mill I've seen before. Given the bolt on design for that vertical head and it's guessed at build date, a lot more machines like this were horizontal mills with sometimes having optional...

    There's a few websites with tables of shear and tensile loads for bolts, and yeah it's amazing just how much even one 1/4" bolt can take before it fails. I've rigged and hoisted some quite expensive...

    Very true. Spindles and gear boxes would be something very different. And for that I bought 5 gallons of that DTE at the same time. But for way or even feed screw lubrication, in the past I've tried...

    I paid $85 for 5 gallons of Vacra no. 2. It works much much better. Any oil is better than no oil, but I'll stick with what's recommended.

    Many thanks for posting the answers they provided. Mostly for use as checking fixed gauges, I'd never have guessed that. The design does make a lot more sense now. I doubt anything like that would be...

    Jet as you probably know are a badge brand. They don't make anything themselves but have manufactures add paint colors and badging with there brand. For a Taiwan 1981 era machine, look for any other...

    Yep that's the same website I found Ballen. Since there's no actual mention or pictures of the same tool on that website, my guess is it's not something in current production.

    I also can't quite figure out what that row of holes are for, obviously for some kind of round shank tool or gauge pins to be used with this, but I've no idea how they might be used. Your first...

    I get that forums are for passing good verifiable information around. In other words that education. That's why I'm really thankful for this particular forum.But even this one can't do it in detail...

    Forums make it way too easy to just ask any question and get handed the answers. Leaving aside the machine itself and your post that raises more questions than answers. And because of the lack of...

    European sourced probably or almost for sure means metric for the draw bar threads. That may or may not be important to you. I'm vertically challenged in my home shop and just changing a draw bar to...

    Very cool, but those pictures are a bit different than what I expected they were going to show Rivett. Those aren't a design I've seen before. I'd be surprised if you didn't know of or might even...

    Ok, now were finally starting to get somewhere. Colt45's information about how that slot is put in is exactly what was needed. And if the slot isn't parallel with true vertical walls, then the actual...

    This won't be of much help, but fwiw? It seems there's a whole lot more gauge block accessory tools available for the square gauge blocks than the rectangular. Since I don't have any metric square...

    Ok, but the 1911 has to be one of the most modified hand guns for those so called competition race guns. How do the commercial level gun smiths measure that slot? That shouldn't be too hard to find...

    Your terminology is a bit confusing so I have to assume your meaning the extra lowest mounted horizontal shaft. It's a bit hard to say with 100% confidence, but what your thinking are ACME threads...

    Wow, much higher than I'd thought Johansen, thanks. That does make it a bit surprising they got adopted and became more common as quickly as they did. A semi logical guess would be that sales might...

    You need to properly define the word "accurately" first. An automotive odometer will measure miles or kilometers pretty accurately, to the nearest inch there useless. So what's the accuracy level...

    A bit late now but for future reference. Depending on the type of glue Union used and a likely guess given the time period it probably would have been hide glue, then using an old clothes iron...

    The needle or hand doesn't need to be removed or touched at all with any model of Mitutoyo dial calipers I know of. Jim Cristie's very first video link shows how to re-zero the needle in any position...
