    Ever forklift I've driven would pick more with the tilt cylinders than it would with the mast lift. So when picking a heavy load from a trailer, you would lift all the mast would do, and then pick...

    No help, but I didn't know anyone could put enough transmissions in the awd version to wear out the front differential.

    You have described a carbon black plant. A place where, after you visit, they will suggest you throw your clothes away. You will get nasty dirty, even through a tyvek suit.

    Toll in this case probably means "fee", like a toll road. So much per piece for supplied material.

    I don't do aluminum, so I can't comment on edge quality. If I was serious about cut quality, I'd go with high def plasma.

    All this good advice, and nobody asks what kind of work you do?

    IMHO, a hone goes with lathe work. If your best lathe bores a .002 taper, a hone on will make your bores much better.

    Your plan for light-duty work is fine, but in reality it won't work. You will drill a hole on the edge of a small part and the bit will catch and the part will be spinning on the bit. That will side...
