    If the company is local you could file a small claims action for whatever it costs to file and serve the papers. Then there is a wait for the trial which can be a month or two. If you get a judgment...

    Well, I wasn't graced with the funds for a place like Georgetown so I did the night school routine. Once I started practicing, it paid for a mill, lathe tooling and some welders. That made it...

    Well I was on limited funds at t\hat time and admittedly somewhat naive. I thought that by hiring the fellow he might even deign to share a bit of knowledge with a teen aged kid, but no,

    It's not just that machinists are grumpy to newbies, sometimes they are that way towards customers.

    I agree. the machine should not be a useful measure, so why do new comers feel the need even to talk about their machinery?

    The biggest mistake that newcomers make on this site, besides not...

    I certainly agree. Used compressor tanks that have outlived their compressors are generally rather old. They often contain rust that may have penetrated the skin of the tank. These can be like a...

    I also have a Webb Mill (4VH, 1987, Taiwan). I installed a two axis Mitutoyo KA unit and scales ca. 2012 and it works very well.

    On the quill, I installed a Mitutoyo scale that is also very good,...

    I know why I don't like evaluations. I've seen them misused in several places where I worked and not only on me. If your boss is a prick, it's a handy way for him to take you out. BTDT.

    If I were buying a brand new knee mill, I would certainly look for a 30 or 40 taper of whatever type. R8 is limited and really won't turn larger shell or face mills and such as mentioned above. 30 or...

    If I were buying a brand new knee mill, I would certainly look for a 30 or 40 taper of whatever type. R8 is limited and really won't turn larger face mills and such . 30 or 40 should be no problem.

    If he could get that BP for cheap, it might be worth a look. For me, it would depend on the condition of the table for starters. I don't like looking at mistakes made by previous users. If the table...

    I couldn't agree more. Love my aging Miller Syncrowave 200. Although I'm not a pro-welder, it does what I need and it's seen a lot of use. Even if I bought a newer inverter unit, I'd still keep my...

    I would never buy an Apple computer. My old boss kept telling me how good they were and he was a pathological liar and dumber than a box of rocks to boot so I ignored him. LOL
