    MolyKote 111 compound has been recommended for use between the magnetic chuck and the table. I've got a tube of it, but haven't used it yet. At the moment, the chuck is resting on a layer of...

    We have one where the cutting wheel cuts into the side of the seam instead of the top of the lid. It's a brilliant idea. The lid and the body come apart with no sharp edges! Wasn't a major brand...

    Building volume should be almost irrelevant when heating a large shop. Why would anyone in their right mind heat the air instead of using infra-red heating unless there were very specialised reasons...

    I found my 0.2 thou/10" one (in a 10" square) pretty damned useful when verifying the alignment of my milling machine and my shaper when I rebuilt them.

    As the others have said. The insulation is probably varnish (class B) instead of bitumen (class A). Use kerosene/paraffin/mineral spirits to clean the windings. Then use C3 bearings. A good solution...

    But if you don't have patents in the relevant territories, you don't have any comeback if someone comes out with a similar/identical technology. You can't have it both ways.

    The ones you link to in the first post are pretty-much the common standard for such self-levelling casters+feet. There is another variety, which is not as highly rated (should be just sufficient)...
