    IR's design is intended to keep costs down, not provide a robust solution. Might work ok for a compressor that sees occasional use, but not one that runs all day every day. Wiring a motor starter...

    To add to all the above, if that lathe has an English pitch lead screw, which it probably does, you can't open the half nuts when cutting a metric thread or you will loose index. You have to stop...

    Those are not OEM specific parts. Contact Lube USA, and they can most likely supply what you need. There are most likely numbers stamped on the metering units that will tell you what the flow rate...

    Good luck with your search for someone. Seems I got someone's panties in a bunch for no good reason. Oh well!

    Why the IEC receptacles? Why not regular old NEMA twist lock receptacles? On the 240 V single phase- why? just pull any 240 V single phase off your 3 phase receptacles if you need it, unless you...

    That's a Kennametal KM series quick change tool. The body itself may be custom or possibly for a cutoff tool blade. Valenite also makes a similar version that is interchangeable. AFAIK they are...

    To add to gbent's comment- its probably crapped up at the chuck end from swarf and coolant rather than from the actuator end, so the chances of boring out that end will allow you to get the rest of...

    660 is pretty easy to machine- nothing like the aluminum or manganese bronzes. Make sure the reamer is sharp, and you should be ok. Assuming here you are not planning on reaming the as cast cored...

    There are an abundance of used Enerpak cylinders of all sizes on ebay for pretty decent prices. Rebuild kits for them are very reasonable. Suppose it depends on what your time is worth. Good luck...

    nope- AFAIK, no carloader had power steering, but I could be mistaken. Only thing left is the tilt/lift valve assembly- and a few more bits and pieces- everything else is on its way to China.
