    IMO, if T1 of a given thickness won't do the job, you need thicker, not stronger, steel.

    Will welding your old spring buy you enough time to get one made?

    My bet is a 4 speed motor was not rewired for a different voltage. 4 speed 3 phase is a serious amount of keeping track of wires, possibly no way to make dual voltage.

    Very interesting motor tag. The rpm's listed are for 60hz power, but the tag is labeled 50hz. I believe it will do just fine on American power.

    The SAE 300 is the best welder of the lot, as long as you have cheap power, 3 phase, and are deaf. The Idealarc 250 is a good stick welder.

    Brand names are important in this business. It is not unusual for a name brand such as Starrett to be worth 10 times the price of an Asian knockoff.

    Blanchard may not be flat enough without scraping. If you are going to scrape it, tell them not to spark it out completely. The top will get a polish that is hard to get a bite on using a scraper. ...

    Depending on condition, simply usable for $1800 would be cheap.

    As far as keyways, the PO had my P&W pushing 3/4 wide keyways in Rc40, 8" long, 6 per piece.

    If I read your post correctly, you are liquid nitrogen cooling the blades after quench and before temper? If so, that would be a no-no for most steels.

    I have a similar straightedge. 5 1/2 wide by 48 long, originally hook scraped. I never considered it could be for scraping turbine cases for sealing rather than machine tool alignment.
