    We currently use the arbor press for all of our internal key way and broaching needs. While being the most economical and taking the least space, there are some times that it's just a pain to hold...

    One thing I'd be interested to see is if anyone has made a custom insert or rack to hold a 0-6" set of micrometers? We have a couple of the fitted wood cases, but they of course take up a lot of room...

    That seems to be part of the fun, is finding the balance between the location that best fits the tools shape, and the location that best fits the tools use. I'm sure that the companies that make...

    I think I wore out 3 Casio watches over 5 or 6 years. I keep a Casio graphing calculator face up in one of my tool box's thin drawers now, but I used to "cheat" all the time using the wrist...

    I use that one on a little rolling jib crane to help handle my bigger straight edges. It's just parked there at the moment. We have several rope block-n-tackles around the shop that get frequently...

    Tips for Organizing Machinists Chests

    I know, if it fits and closes, you're good! I'm just curious if anyone has made things like fitted inserts for certain tools, etc.

    In our shop, stuff like fixturing, tool holders, and expendables,...

    Another year goes by and Tory is still waiting for me to finish the saddle:(. Life and projects and all.

    I got the reliefs cut between the top surfaces of the saddle and the cross slide ways....

    I used to wear the Casio calculator watch's. Even with the tiny buttons (use a pencil, not your finger) they're super handy for quick math. My last one, the rubber strap ripped and I switched to a...

    It's almost daily that I talk to someone who has no clue how things are made OR how small business works. It's not something you learn in school, it's a state of awareness IMO. People don't get how...

    Just speculation, but the fresh paint leads me to think that enough of it was there for someone to start working it over (provided the bits and pieces haven't been lost in moves).

    I'd start by getting it cleaned and oiled, find a counter-shaft assembly (ebay), and get it wired on a stand/bench it can call home. From there just start filling in blanks as you go until you're...

    Just an update: If everything goes to plan, the lathe will be loading onto a truck and departing Mass. this Friday. So I could have it here in Texas between Wednesday and Friday of next week.

    I've always used the shim-stock method to mitigate warped parts from being pulled flat by the magnet. You can also use a sheet of copier paper between the part and the magnet to give a slight amount...

    It appears that Ames Mfg. and B.C. Ames are different companies.

    I wouldn't group SB in the same category as the import stuff, but I do agree that harry-home-shop hacks, while they might "get-er-done" and do so on a budget, don't belong on a "professional" site....

    ^ That would by my guess is that they adapted the top half of a BP head to replace the original flat-belt drive.

    This one turned out pretty good. I think it all boils down to surface prep; lots of sanding, primer, and a little well placed filler....

    If it was my machine, I'd "match" the dividing head to my table. IMO, they SHOULD be part of the machine anyway, not an accessory to be interchanged with other machines or put on a shelf and sold...

    I assume your machine is hand feed? The Length of the cut is only going to effect your arm muscles. Take multiple lighter depth of cuts and don't crowd the cutter and leave material for a finish...

    Also, here's a 2AM center I finished today. Since my machine still had the original driving plate, I wanted to make a center to go with it and complete the set-up (minus the drive dog, but...

    This is my first 2AM center. It turned out pretty good with the two angles being concentric within .001 without being ground to size. The heat treat came out a little soft at 40 rockwell. I...
