    On a shitastic lathe it's much preferred to start with something that has threads than start with something easy to turn that needs to be threaded.

    I used a tiny grizzly lathe to turn a bunch of 1/2" stainless nuts and cap screws down to a uniform diameter (including facing the nuts and shoulder so they fit tighter). I used the carbide inserts...

    Does the compressor have oil?

    We tripped the overload on our compressor motor a few times due to the oil being too cold (35F) and bogging down the motor.

    I actually live in a strange commercial/residential zone, so I can live in the second story space of a business. There are no noise ordinances but it's also not a true industrial zone.

    I used to live in a barn on the property with the shop I worked at. It was pretty great. Not I live in the upstairs office space of the warehouse I work at. Equally great.
