    Who would have picked CSR for making a dodgy building product?. Caneite had a smell that never went away even when very old. Think old paperback books with caramel.

    Looks like the stuff I buy as Ash. Locally grown stuff has rings much further apart and thus harder and denser still.
    Oak vs Ash is as simple as oak has a ray if quartered or ray fleck if flatsawn,...

    Heat the section of the backplate that covers the thread and feed penetrating oil in at the exposed thread end. Not too hot, just uncomfortable to touch is about right. Tapping the backplate all over...

    It's threaded.
    Attach a stud to the faceplate and "bump" it (in the correct direction) against a block resting against the bed.
    Don't use the backgear to lock it up.

    But it's a bench lathe! Two minutes in wasn't much more substantive. Preview saved 22 minutes of my day.
    I did wonder why a collet was needed to hold a grinding wheel though. Flanges are not good...

    What he has made seems to be belt drive, which makes for confusion as to what you have in mind.
    If you do want to direct drive a grinding spindle, it is very possible for internal grinding (several...

    I've owned two Taylor chucks and seen one other that were cracked in the bottom of the jaw slot, so I'd say the same has happened here. The conical scroll takes all the gripping forces of the body so...

    Sort-of maybe

    I don't agree that standard low- E stops the sun's heat at all. There is slightly less long wave transmission because of the ceramic/metallic coating but less tham 0.1%. Re-radiation of short wave is...

    It's important to have some gap as glass and steel move quite a bit with temperature changes. The old rule of thumb was to measure and deduct 1/8" for timber sashes, a bit more for steel.

    That's the beast- I have also seen them with a morse taper socket but don't own one. Railways workshops seem to have been the native home, both for hardwood and metal.
