    Please accept my condolences. It is extraordinary for someone that age and so active to be taken. I'll cut to the chase: 1) What kind of farming do you plan to do 2) do you plan on a diversified...

    Some (many) of the Yahoo groups are moving to groups.io and your group might migrate there at some point. Other machining forums have already gone there, hardinge mill and hardinge lathe.

    That's a really bad idea and a completely wrong way to flatten a sharpening stone. Better ways are:

    1) buy a ceramic flattening stone designed to flatten sharpening stones. They have diagonal...

    Forklift yellow will do, has a nice ring to it. Amazing how collectors will think up reasons to pay more for things. Good you got more money for it rather than less because of the color. It seems...

    This is very impressive. You are owed a big debt of gratitude from many people. Glad I had a chance to meet you in Chapel Hill at my farm/shop and see that canary yellow Miata. An engineer friend got...

    Thanks for the good advice. As for milling or grinding it and holding it down without distortion,
    it seems to me that it could be mounted on the table of the mill or grinder without clamping it ...

    I think snipe may be the problem he is having. He will probably try to get the bed ground somewhere though it could be done on a large mill but not as accurately.

    Well, this is a non paying job for me and the shop is way down the road so cannot supply pix. I suggested the owner get a PM account and take a dive into the lion's den.

    Adjusting the levelling rollers won't do what he needs, it seems. He is getting imperfect planing on costly boards for pricey furniture and it is serious enough for him to have the bed flattened. I...

    Yes, bolted down and the plane of the bed is adjustable side to side. I had doubts about achieving .001 tolerance after removing and machining it so flattening it in place seems to be the best way to...

    Thanks, John. He is an expert woodworker but has no experience with any machining processes. I agree that scraping would be best but he would have to do it himself or find someone willing to do the...

    Amazing, just an ordinary consumer product. Naval Jelly with oxalic acid should work too. Or put the stones in a pot of pokeweed root and berries and boil them up.

    That is a good question. Maybe smaller pore space (3000 grit) would be an issue when deburring precision surfaces and creating metal particles.
