    A manual machine tool? I think you'll be fine with either. Just go with the cheapest. If you are worried abut scratches then a person could always ask for the machine to be stretch-wrapped ahead...

    I would try for some sort of a parts manual. Armed with some sort of a part number then you can probably do a lot better crossing over.

    Even the old IH tractor part numbers can cross over to Napa...

    As suggested a monorail would be easiest to install if the overhead structure can handle it.

    You could put in an actual jib crane but it might need some concrete work...I just put one in for...

    Imo, owner of the smallest MM-35 is that if you get the sheared part up close to the pivot pin the shear blades are way out of parallel at the start of the cut for thick material. That leads to...

    You'd do best to grind such material. Or grind thru the case with a dremel and then mill it.

    The rigging charge is what, north of $1k to do this? $1k to get the crane to show up and then hourly after that? [don't know for sure but just WAG-ing]

    One can buy enough framing and roofing...

    Possible its valve guide, the exhaust valves usually don't directly contribute but positive pressure can get pushed thru the oil side of the system and thru the PCV ventilation.

    Bottom line is if...

    Drill a pilot hole with a magnet drill?

    Or punch a clearance slug with a 60+ ton ironworker?

    I think Tennsmith could be used if oiling and such was regularly attended to.

    Like light swab on the edges every couple of cycles, oil the eccentrics & pivot on the finger brake. Counteractive to...

    Could also "lose" it which is going to get a new cc number. Tough to bill against a number which is inactive.

    Good that it worked out.

    It was mindless boring work, went for 3 shifts, 7 days.

    The "obstacles" were all manufactured, had the obtuse angle bermed rail crossing to induce max chassis-twist, some "potholes" made out of...

    That's a Motown Exit and has been going on here long before it got popular there. ;)

    It could be done, yes, but the trailer would be easier.

    I towed a GN trailer west of Chicago to pick up a...

    Great detail!

    One question, my eyeball says the worms aren't the same pitch....but calibration of my glasses could be off :) and/or perspective or camera angle.

    What is up with all of those rods going thru the cross-slide? Is there power to the compound?

    Does it use a neutral in the cord-set?

    I would expect 240vac/480vac on all combinations of phase-to-phase.
