    Years back....one of the guys (Bill) who worked for us came from another large motor manufacturer. Keep in mind, this was in the days of 3 hour martini lunches and patting the secretary on her ass,...

    I receive tires all the time via UPS and they are wrapped in shrink wrap...and I am sure no one is paying extra. The reason they are only shrink wrapped is it's easier and cheaper than boxing them. ...

    I always just look at the chart on my wall, if I can't remember. Then, whatever the chart says, I find the closest drill bit I have and use it. If the drill is smaller, I waller it around a little....

    No telling without taking it there and seeing if they do. It's dependent on the leniency of the specific person at UPS.

    UPS won't like those tabs sticking up.

    But even if they accept it, and...

    By your definition, any business structure would be an accessory building. It's not legal to sell land with a business on it?

    It's always scary to talk about motor pricing when you have no specifics (not even the HP) but let's assume a 13" lathe has a 2HP motor. You can buy a decent TEFC 3/240v 2HP motor for $250 or less,...

    All those electronics sounds like a nightmare. Even the guys who understand it want to quibble over which way will work without disasters.

    Again, it goes back to the willingness to scrap a part...

    If he's using cast iron heads, I doubt an o-ring will seal.

    And....I also think he's daydreaming if he tells you the o-ring is a 'splash shield' and not a seal. It sounds as if he's trying to use...

    An initial consideration for me would be the parts being threaded...if they are production parts that are worth a few bucks in material, that's one thing. But if scrapping a part is expensive, or...

    How dare you questions scientists! If they say you use 60KG per day, then you do. Only a nutcase would dare ask for proof or clarification.

    I'm surprised anyone uses cut-off wheels in a 4-1/2" or 7" grinder. I thought only the Master Artisans on TV who wear black shirts did that.

    Yes, sometimes the grinder is unavoidably the tool for...

    No, cyanide - oddly enough - is perfectly safe to breathe or even drink in large quantities. Proof? It's organic.
