    Have you considered clamping them between plates and stress relieving them. That is done at a much lower temperature than hardening. You could do it in a kitchen oven.

    Certainly most of us are capable of sorting out what we read. The problem is that these rants often are mixed in with useful information, either from others in the thread or or the posters in...

    I haven't read all 185 posts and am not going to, but I have a possible solution. On another forum they held the posts until the Mod read them. In that case, it was pornography spam, but a similar...

    The freedom of speech issue does not really apply here. Aside from the equal time idea, it does not mean that I have to publish your opposing views in my newspaper. Publishers and editors restrict...

    Sometimes I think that behavior is beyond control of the person. I worked with one like that. Fortunately, he wasn't a manager. The jerk would not keep his hands off of things, including partially...

    An independent did a job for a company that was bad about paying so he put a day drop dead in the program. Of course the line went down and he could say that when they paid, he would give them the...

    If some of the tool holders are 30 taper, they have more value than the R8s for the Bridgeport. I understand that some Laguns were made with 40 taper spindles. If yours uses them and there a...

    There is some moderating going on. One of my posts and the reactions to it have disappeared, probably because some would consider mine to be racist, so someone is watching.

    Now we have a couple of posts difficult to classify, 19 on the subject and 12 relating to the Donie and Thermite show. I propose that we get up a petition for Milacron to add a thread strictly for...
  13. OT When told to stop something, people always have to get in one more lick.

    To make a theoretical example, suppose someone is dragging a piece of machinery around on your desk and scratching it. You say stop-- Stop--, STOP!!! and he says "I just want to get it lined up."...

    I make springs from music wire as it comes, just allow for springback. Once you get it in the shape you want, stress relieve it. Typical stress relief is 400-500 F for an hour, but don't take my word...

    Air is .93% argon. We get the argon for welding, etc., simply by separating it from air. As hobbyman says, It is completely harmless as long as you do not have such a high percentage that it...

    That was satire. You do know about satire, don't you? or has Donie destroyed your ability to recognize it.

    I have a few 40s radios that needed to have capacitors, usually electrolytics, reformed or replaced and a few later instruments that have some get leaky, but that is about all. I can't recall...

    One I have seen repeatedly, specially in movies, is that someone pulls an automatic pistol and it fails to fire. They say it jammed. How can it on the first shot?

    In series it is a good idea to put resistors on each capacitor to balance the voltage across them. If the leakage of each differs, there will be unequal voltages across them. All you need is enough...
