    Another possibility would be to introduce an air gap between the ram and upper die. Even a modest air flow through the gap would significantly cool the upper part and ram. Supports could be SS posts...

    I've had very good results with the HVLP guns sold by Eastwood. The price isn't bad and they are of good quality. I had a chance to do a side-by-side comparison with a high end pro gun and it was...

    I'd use Tung oil, slightly thinned with mineral spirits and a bit of Japan dryer for faster curing. Apply a generous coat and let it soak in for 10-15 minutes then wipe off. Wait more than 24 hours...

    I'd suggest laying a 1/2" machinist's scale next to the part.

    That suggests that arbor may not have been correctly re-installed on the motor shaft, which could explain the arbor & flange runout.

    Interesting... Sometime in the last 12 months or so my bookmark for Esta USA has morphed into something else. Digging a little further into the site indicates that Esta was the US distributor for...

    8 thou at the flange is a lot. Since the arbor screws onto the motor shaft, there could be a registration problem between the arbor and the motor shaft, the arbor could be bent, or the bearings could...

    With respect to the planer & jointer, the blades can be changed quickly and easily with Esta knives (ESTA USA - Online Application For The U.S. Visa Waiver Program). The actual knives are double...

    Try a pair of hemostats. They are stainless and solder won't stick to them. You can find sets (curved and straight) of various sizes on Amazon for $5-10.

    It sounds like you are talking about a Super Pubic Catheter. I have one while nerve damage repairs. It hurts for a while (a few days to a week) following insertion, but should become unnoticeable...

    Tiles vary in thickness by type and maker. I'd grab a piece of concrete backer, apply thinset in the normal manner (with a notched trowel), lay down a tile, and measure the height above the backer...

    The concrete isn't ideal, as mentioned above. Drive a ground rod in a few inches from the concrete. If that hole missed to power wires the ground rod should also.
  13. If you measured those voltages under no load,...

    If you measured those voltages under no load, they will probably drop under load. Motors are pretty tolerant of minor under/over voltage, so it probably won't be a problem.

    I must be missing something as I don't see the point of pulling single-phase loads of the 3-phase output of the the RPC. If you need additional single-phase circuits, just pull the power from the...

    If you aren't in a hurry. Wet down the oil stains with kerosene or mineral spirits, let it soak for 6-8 hours, then cover with a thick layer of "kitty litter". Repeat until the stain is gone. For the...

    If using 1" tube, cross braces are not needed. Since the forces on the 3-in1 will be to the front. the rear legs can be straight but the front legs need to angled out a good bit. I prefer to put the...

    You would need 8 AWG wire only if you had multiple machines that were in simultaneous operation (each machine adds to the generated 3phase power). A more reasonable approach, in my opinion, would be...

    I hardly ever use rattle cans any more. A while back I replaced my siphon fed trim and full sized spray guns with gravity fed HVLP guns, which are way easier to clean and have little overspray. I'll...
