    That doesn't sound like a very good idea to me at all. For the same money you could get whole variety of carbon steel blades that would enable you to figure out what works best for your purposes. ...

    If it shrank after machining it obviously got drier. When you say it was drying for 18 months, was that outside or indoors? It just won't get dry enuf outside, needs to be in a heated space, ...

    I think the taper shank on that part is hardened, only the "machinable" end is soft

    Any reason he couldn't glue the shank in the sleeve with CA glue and then heat gently to get it out?

  5. OT- Cataract surgery - which lens option to choose?

    It's time, I no longer feel comfortable driving in the dark. I'm 75, near sighted, been wearing classes since I was 10 years old. Used to have great up-close vision w/o glasses, not so great...

    If you do replace the bearings, and they are not sealed, I'd use Kluber grease in them. It's expensive, but lasts a really long time.

    Yeah, I've had experience lapping centers. Did it decades ago to prepare a big woodworking shaper spindle for re-machining at the shop of my precision metalworking mentor. Needed to get the bearing...

    Where would one get the abrasive paper cone? Seems like who ever makes the cone would also make the rest of it.

    Looks to me like these are playing at double the speed they were recorded at. Try playing back at 50%, looks normal

    Also, that scrap looks like scrap from a stamping press, not really razor wire.

    Make sure you use HOT hide glue and not liquid hide glue. Requires preparation, but stronger.

    Hey, recycling stock makes a lot of sense, especially if you have more time than $$. A good industrial auction can be a goldmine. I've picked up pallets of large cnc fixtures for less than scrap...

    I'm pretty sure nitromethane works as a super glue remover. Never tried it myself tho.

    Ok, be honest, you just posted this to get more views for your video, yes? ;-)

    Regarding the stock left outside, I notice you're in Pillager, MN - coincidence?

    I really like your guard dog and...

    I think the OP is referring to the 3 leg "spider" that the worker is using to grab the wheel and remove it from the machine. Right at 3:53

    Looks to me like formica is the simplest and least costly solution for this. Re-anodizing would be a nice restoration, but way more expensive and time consuming, and no more functional, IMHO.

    I've used a fair amount of UHMW tape over the years, plenty slippery enuf, and much less $$$. The real issue is keeping it stuck in place. Once an edge gets loose, it just starts to peel off. ...

    Tbanks for the replies. These are parts sorta like fancy acorn nuts that I'm buying, not my tap that's causing trouble. Cut tap chases them just fine.

    If I start making these myself, I'd drill...
  20. Form or cut tap for chasing tight threads in nickel plate brass?

    I use a lot of nickel plated brass hardware on my banjos, and often internal threads need to be chased because they are too tight. Threads range from 6-32 to 10-24. sometimes 8-26 (custom made...

    This is exactly right, the way to maximize return. But at a huge cost of time and effort. I'm doing just that with some exotic wood I have, to find out what the market value is. Then I can decide...

    +1 for Stephens drill bushing jig! The holes don't even have to be accurately spaced on a mill, layout with a scale will do, so longs as the jig is positioned identically for each cabinet side.

    I've always found shipping costs from McMaster to be very reasonable. And way cheaper than driving somewhere to pick something up.
