    There are so many motors and motor manufacturers out there that the best you can say is some are better than others.

    YES!

    I would not even try it. Mist, drip, brush on, or flood; just forget it.

    Personally I prefer oil based coolants for the lubricant effect, but I do understand the need for cooling in many...

    If it works, it works. Great.

    And yes, it is Paul. Not hiding anything: that's what I go by, my middle name. Perhaps I should incorporate it in my tag line. I picked the user name many years ago...

    Well, good luck with it. And remember the purpose for leveling a lathe is to have it turn proper cylinders. The actual level is not the end purpose AND it is not even the last step in setting a lathe...

    Assuming that this is a serious question, it is far, far too vague to obtain any decent answer.

    I would consider redesigning this circuit in the following manner.

    Yes, I had a bone spur. The shots gave me some relief and, in time, it did go away. But, YMMV.

    Now and for the past several decades I have had back problems. Several doctors have recommended...

    I have built a lot of op amp circuits and this is exactly what I was thinking of. Modern op amps can have a very high input impedance and a very low output one. And to maintain the accuracy, op amp...

    Coolant, preferably an OIL based one.
