    Sumptin to think about- roll up doors on either the east or west side of a building can turn into solar heaters. Good in the winter, bad in the summer.

    I'll go $25.00 and just keep it in the drawer for that one job that may never show up. A cardboard tube like McMaster ships in would be best. A 1/16 broach is pretty fragile and two piece ones...

    No one in their right mind would put the dark hi Sulphur thread cutting oil from Home Depot in a machine tool other than a pipe threader.

    Are you certain that the pinion teeth are badly worn? I'm about 97.5% certain that your 10 tooth pinion is cut on an enlarged blank due to the low number of teeth. Even a 20 degree PA 10 tooth gear...

    How hard is the part? tapping or single point threading? Carbide tap? Why? Roughing the thread prior to HT might be a good idea, but that bore is going to shrink with heat treating, but its better...

    This works on stubborn and almost stripped head socket head cap screws very well- so. Take a VERY big brass hammer and pound the small end of the shank toward the boring head. The idea is to...

    My experience has been that unless you have gobs of chips- like hundreds and hundreds of #, no one wants them. Don't know how big your trailer is but. . . .

    Appears to be a nice lathe in great shape for its age, but as others have said or implied, you will be fortunate to probably get half your current asking price.

    Do you know how to check communication settings at the control? If you are not familiar with setting up RS232, the sending computer settings need to match the receiving computer settings. I'm like...

    1st thing I would do is clean the contacts in the auxiliary contact block that latches the coil/control circuit. There should be a wiring diagram in the cover of the contactor enclosure.

    Nothing worse than a lift with forks that are too short. To me, 36" forks are too short unless your work area is so tight that nothing else will work. 48" forks are pretty useful for most tasks, but...

    You really don't need a gundrill to drill thru 16". That's only 8" from each end. A good quality aircraft drill will easily drill that deep. Just saying.
