    Yes, a big part of your problem is that is a cutter for bevel gears. There are several people here who will say there's no such thing as a bevel gear cutter, but I've seen shelves of WW2-vintage old...

    I have some of each eye type, in nylon 1-ply 2" and nylon 2-ply 1". For almost all jobs, it doesn't make much difference. I did select twisted eye type for use with a shop-make spreader because the...

    Depending on where you measured, might be TG75 or EOC16 (DIN 6388). A side view would be helpful, as would measured angles on the longer part of the taper (state each side, or included), and the...

    If that mill has an NMTB50 taper spindle, it probably isn't going to notice that cut. (I'm not familiar with that brand/model of mill, so basing that on experience with other 50 taper machines.) If...

    I don't do 5052 in my shop, but I did a bit of reading and found that 5052 is the only 5xxx alloy which pretty much requires filler. I.e., you can't just fuse it with itself. The problem is weld...

    LPS#3 (available as spray or liquid in a jug) leaves a waxy film that's pretty easy to remove. If you let it harden up for a few days, it doesn't easily transfer to things that touch it.

    Troyke DMT-15 12"x12" rotary cross-slide table is almost the same weight, at 320-330 lbs. I hope you either got a smaller Troyke or your back uses a hoist/crane.
