    My knob has a pin and a spring on the back side. The pin is located in a small depth hole at either the thread or feed positions.
    Might be something going on with that.

    Who ever is using that bare copper bundle as a tie wrap deserves a merit badge. The strands are hanging above a high voltage component. :nutter:

    I use Industrial Coatings from DuPont. Two part paint that is for metal but less expensive than car paint. Still can take a week to fully cure if not

    People are brought up in a fast food culture and quick check-out lanes. Can't blame the guy.

    Around here garage floors are not 6" thick. Half that. Over-build and be happy.

    The red/blue/yellow color code jaw tool is not strong enough to bend the metal. That lug has .050 thick rolled pieces. The insulated connector lugs
    are about 1/3 that thickness. Those thick...

    Is it stuck in a operating position? Or in the middle.
    If it was in a running position I would see if running the machine up to temp might work.

    Sometimes I use a 3/8 square stick to jam in the...

    Been holding my breath if I was not doing stuff right. Because I duplicate some parts made from CNC machines the process is not like how they do it.
    A process of trimming down a hex head, drilling a...

    This is the insert I have with an Iscar holder.

    11ER A60 K20C INSERT – chpeters.com

    The tip can fit in a .010 square box. An upside V in a square box. Observed under pretty good mag (50x).

    Feeding in straight causes two chips and they interfere with each other and mess up the cut. According to Machine Shop Practice by...

    This is an air dryer this guy made for his plasma cutter. This is where I got the idea for my setup. I have had it operating periodically for several months.
    The coil has reduced the large gush to a...
  11. Hardinge threading with a partial profile bit. How to widen bottom to Pitch/4.

    A partial profile bit I use in a Iscar holder. There is a warning label on the box of ten. Warning about grinding dust.
    I was not aware that these bits are altered with grinding. The coating is...

    Yes, that is how it was explained to me by a knowledgeable person at Motion Industries. The lube is injected at the factory by a machine with know amount.
    The last time I looked at one of those...

    You reminded me that I have to periodically change the x position when using a partial profile bit. To sweep the flat on the bottom.
    When I don't do it right the fit is tight or won't fit at all....

    If you use the zerks to pump the same grease then no problem. Not optimum to pump in a known grease into a unknown greased bearing. Avoid mixing greases.

    The new grease is fine and I don't think...

    Here is some explanation.

    There are two paint guns. One came with an adjustment for air (bushing & alum screw). The other paint gun came with a plugged hole.

    I can copy the bushing & screw. The...

    Well the Italians broke that rule or close to it.

    The screw in question is probably not going to be plated. If it starts to loosen up over time then plating would have prevented that.

    I have put back straight edges like that with a Kurt vise (minimum) with handle and a few scrap pieces of wood and metal.
    It's going to have to be touched up with filler. The paint job is not hard...

    I would not trust the chemicals in that stuff to be compatible with human organs. Lymph fluid and blood distributes stuff everywhere.

    Maybe this happens to you too. A major reason for writing about this stuff:

    To admin, thought this question was worth asking. Obviously it's too weak so just remove all this. Will make room for more jokes elsewhere.

    In this case the depth is 0.298. I might try power tapping with a cheaper tap. Or I can try with this one again, because I will probably not use it for a long time.
