    At least you are coming back for more. All your other features are hobby grade, so is your material. But your on size tolerance is strictly top notch. +/- .0002 is a very expensive feature. No...

    So you have an egg laying wool milk pig. At what cost? The bottle opener addition is stupid.

    Run the air intake for your compressor outside. Your outside air probably has a lower dew point than anything you can get from a refrigerated dryer. Won't work in June or July, but it will work now.

    Square way machines can be produced on a boring mill or a planer. Dovetail ways are produced only on a planer.

    The original chart sat on the horizontal surface above the feed change dial. Stupid move on L&S part to put valuable information on a flat surface. Your pic in post 26 shows it in place. Guess it...

    $50. choice delivered of the smaller two, $130 for the pipe center. All have good points. They have a little rust. The black one is NSK, the center says Japan, and the pipe says "News #5".

    I think if my space was at a premium I would get rid of the horizontal saw and keep the vertical. I would replace the horizontal with a portaband. For cuts on long stock with a vertical, DoAll...

    There may be something better out there now, but when I was familiar with the game a Serdi was the fastest seat machine out there. An air float table for a Bridgeport is ok, but you have to check...

    I'll stand by what I wrote given the pictures shown. The center knob is the fine adjust. This unit appears to predate the ships wheel units. Photo 3 shows a lever below the fine adjust with a low,...

    There is a reason the standard hardness test for castings is Brinell.

    What traceability requirements do your hardness test specify? It sounds like a Teleweld Telebrineller would be useful. Any...

    What he said. Looks like that is a 3 speed unit with a fine adjust. I'm going to disagree a little, and say that is a '40's generator unit. No idea about the engine.

    Your magnetic contactor probably has an overload feature. This overload feature may need to be manually reset. I have no idea what this feature looks like on a Japanese contactor, but on an...

    I haven't shaped a lot of parts that way, but I never had a problem with the spindle turning without a spindle lock. I just put it in low gear. YMMV, especially if you have a hollow shaft motor for...

    Hobby? That's a very serious hobby.

    Don't screw around with wet rags for differential temper. The heat will dry them and you will get unwanted heat migration. Put the crank in a bucket of...

    If you have to buy holders, you need a DA rather than a CA. CXA is a toy on that size machine.

    Keep up with the heavy iron acquisitions and she is liable to go white. That close enough?
