  1. Ball bearings have a median life rating of 10...

    Ball bearings have a median life rating of 10 million revolutions, so I gather from some charts in the SKF catalogue. I suppose oversize can go longer. But the motor made it to 7.5 billion, so that's...

    Not sure what kind of other settings you would need to transfer, if you have some settings from Autocad, those are the files that you need to import.

    When I install a new installation of...

    The few NiCad battery packs that I have taken apart all had a bad cell in the mix. I can't see how any particular charging strategy is going to circumvent that happening. If it happened to nearly all...

    I've never used up any cordless tools to their mechanical failure point. It's always been the batteries that go for shit.

    I've had good luck with the 18V Milwuakee lithium ion batteries going on 5...

    If your machine checks ok, then check your wheel dressing technique. What else is there? Wheel is acting too soft, perhaps, running the wrong speed?

    I see quite a few new square end carbide endmills actually have the rake face inside the flute ground flat and parallel to the tool axis for a short distance. This removes the hyper-sharp and weak...

    Is there some reason you can't just turn the damn grinder on, and apply some abrasive cloth to the shaft and sand it down a bit? This paranoia that people have about 'the factory fit must be right'...

    BEV has barely caught on. So the current demand on the grid is a mere hiccup. And get the climate alarmists crowing ever more about the need to get off fossil fuels, the only 'permitted solution' is...

    I don't like the idea of adding all that extra load to the grid with 'unreliables'. Does everyone really believe that widespread battery charging is not going to have repurcussions on the price of...

    I shouldn't even be writing here because I don't have a lot of experience with daily running of my cnc lathe. But back when I did, I found it pretty helpful to get Kennametal Kmod, which is similar...

    So none of you clean your files on a power wire wheel then? :D

    So you're a mechanical engineer. Do you understand the adjustment of the table gib and the table lock screws?

    The slides don't look all rusted up, so that is good. With some oil and adjustment of...

    I can't see off-loading management of the business to another person unless you literally hire them as boss and obey their commands. The real art is dealing with interruptions, ordering materials,...

    Don't buy it if you're a cheapskate. Every little thing costs time and money to fix, and $1000 is nothing any more. It might be a fine machine (potentially) but it might need a couple of thousand to...

    Are you using RO water or better? Otherwise, your coolant is going to get harder and harder water over time, because the minerals never leave with evaporation.

    I dress cloth flapwheels frequently on a bench grinder with a coarse wheel. I don't think scotch brite would be so different. Have them counter-rotating, and run the wheel fast to make it seem...

    I'd think every employee should be getting 2% per year increase without asking for it. That is what even a mediocre union labor contract can usually haggle out, and it is reasonable, and the shame...

    It may have been the case that cutting the keyway was considered to be a risk insofar as the shaft bending a bit from the stress changes if a lot of material is removed. Hence they planned to take a...

    Yup, I'd heat 'em up with a big torch. Probably, the hard zone is not all that deep so if you can achieve a dull red for the first half an inch, it might be annealed enough. Reason you want to heat...

    I do not agree that 1.500 implies a tolerance of +/-.001. By significant figures, the 'must do' accuracy is 1.50 without exception, and the last decimal could be any value from 0 to 9. The tolerance...

    When I started out, I had hired a helper probably within a couple of years. That necessitated the purchase of an additional lathe. So there is always the aspect of each employee requiring additional...

    I agree that the number of significant digits is not the same thing as a tolerance.

    The tolerance can be whatever you want to specify. I said that.

    The last digit of 0.175 being 5 is...
