    If you believe this waste of space, I have a bridge to sell you. He's had 40+ years to do what he advertised with the last 8 in the WH, he did nothing. Why would you expect him to do anything now?

    Joe,
    I thought about the issue a lot and ended up blocking the bottom of the table with a graphite plate. Then sticking the whole table in my barbecue preheating the whole casting to about 250C. I...

    I have had a shaper in a corner of my shop for more than 20 years and not had a job for it for all that time, but I made a terrible error. I bought a drill press sight unseen because the photo looked...

    This is a huge issue that effects every aspect of human existence. It is not new. This problem has been with us since human day one. Today, the issue is digital, but in reality it is every aspect of...

    I'm sorry to say that I do not believe your measurements. Please understand your numbers are so unusual that something else is happening. Personally, I'm a test bar guy. If the bed is straight, using...

    All motors have an optimum speed where their efficiency is greatest. A VFD varies the speed of a 3 phase motor both above and below their most efficient speed. Even though a 1/2 HP motor is plenty...

    I think it will work perfectly. I suggest you find a friend that has a valve grinder and try it. It won't be any faster, but it will free up the lathe.

    I really, really dislike restrictions. They are for the most part unconstitutional anyway. Individual circumstances vary widely, even among us here on this forum. What works well for some does not...

    I think this virus is a great way to improve the gene pool. There are far too many people in the world. The virus helps. It even filters out the stupid first. Don't be stupid.

    First, I don't think level is so important on a milling machine, but it is important that the weight is evenly distributed across the 24 posts. Secondly, if the table is level under the spindle, but...

    You asked for a recommendation for a low cost superior grinder wheel for your Baldor grinder. Green wheels suck. There is no comparison between green wheels and diamond, but quality diamond wheels...

    I had a similar issue 2 years ago. I started a tread about this issue at that time. I did a comprehensive search and found a company that will make a custom diamond wheel to your specs in the grit...

    The difference between 1 in 10 and 1 in 16 is huge. The 9mm Parabellum was designed by the Germans so the officers behind the battle line could provide harassing fire over long distances. That twist...

    First, the process is called re-chambering not reaming. Second, not all 9mm barrels will have adequate wall thickness to be safe and thirdly, since the 9mm barrels have a must too fast rifling twist...

    Exactly why using the cloud for your data is fraught with risk. Once your IP leaves your possession, it is essentially public and no longer yours.

    I think you are wrong. I did a major repair of a SB 1308 almost 20 years ago and I powder coated the base cabinet at that time. The cabinet not only supports the lathe bed, but acts as a chip pan as...
