    Have you considered a used CNC grinder? As a side note, before going full time on my own in my garage shop, I was programming/running a couple Studers (S40 and S41), a large Usach, and Danobat. The...

    RFQ, possible laser?

    Hey guys, looking to have 10x of these plates cut out. Initially planned to cut them traditionally either drill or endmill, but thinking waterjet or laser is the way to go if tolerances can be hit...

    Abene VHF-3 table capacity?

    I noticed in the manual I have, it doesn't appear to list weight limit for the table. Anyone happen to know what that is?

    I know I'm digging up an old post (really old) but, as I find myself digging around the internet trying to see how other people have powered a Syncrowave 300, I'd like to clarify (I think) that the...

    Welp, ended up pulled the trigger on a Syncrowave 300 AC/DC a couple hrs away with liquid cooled torch and Radiator 1 cooler. It's quite a bit larger than the Syncrowave 250, but the 1 for sale...

    And honestly, will I ever run into a situation where the few extra amps on the Miller/Marquette will make or break some project I may have going on, and how many yrs between instances... LOL

    It was working great prior to being placed in storage several yrs ago, but damn it's huge... My shop is 18x32ft, this would certainly take up a sizeable dent in it...

    Power isn't a problem yet, I have a 200amp service on the garage, with a 50kva xformer out on the pole. It's just enough to run the shop, but not the welder at full tilt with the Okuma at full tilt....

    It certainly is a beast! It does have a fairly new rheostat as well.

    Turns out the Marquette is a re-branded Miller 330 A/B. That being said, the actual Miller 330 A/B for sale I think would be a better deal because it has a more substantial water pump (1.6gph 60psi)...

    I'll see about getting a photo in a bit, as well as the schematic on the inside of the panel. For what it's worth, it looks identical to a Miller 330 A/B. I'm not sure if it uses the older big...

    Marquette welder

    I'm considering a TIG welder, trying to decide between a Lincoln IdealArc 250 AC/DC, Miller 330 A/B, or Marquette 300amp AC/DC TIG. The Lincoln would come with a tank, no reg, air cooled torch with...

    The Clausing Colchesters we have at work all run water based coolant, without problems. Just clean them off at the end of each day with air and a rag, no big deal.

    EG,
    Thanks for the tips. Yeah I didn't know if the gear cutter would work for a spline? But that appears to be a no. I could either do it in the B-port, or in the Abene. I'll need to rig up a...

    Turns out I have a 2nd shaft to make as well (qtny 3, same spline on both ends, would prefer gear cutter vs fly cutter). This one seems a bit easier to determine, at least to a non-expert on gears vs...

    Phil, I was sorta leaning that direction at one point as well. I just don't have much of a template to go by. Suppose I could take an impression with putty and match that as closely as possible?

    Usually just blow off the cross-slide, toolpost, ways with air (being careful not to blow directly into crevasses), and wipe the rest with a rag. Quick easy cleanup. This is what I do at work...

    I think I have at least 1 involute spline I need to reproduce. It's a driveshaft for an old tractor that's no longer available, shaft snapped, 21tooth spline at one end, 19tooth spline at...

    Just a follow up, initially tried with a long twist drill, which unsurprisingly walked into the 4140prehard bushing (30-35HRC) by roughly 0.010" to 0.015" over about 3". Switched to a gun drill, and...
