    No. Nothing like that ever happens to me Digger. And I never lose small parts that are launched by my wire wheel either.

    I have a table similar to that one. Not long ago I had a problem with it raising so I took the little plug out and filled it to the opening with fluid. It went up fine after I filled it but then it...

    many years ago I worked in a motor rebuild shop so I have done this quite a bit. Turn the comm down with a tool with a good radius on the nose and quite a bit of back rake since it is soft copper....

    I don't know if you have the equivalent of Harbor Freight (basically cheap imported tools) but they have a one ton arbor press for $50.00. There's your rack and pinion.

    I have gone through two used dishwashers in the last thirty years. I usually just use hot soapy water and detergent but I have used a commercial water based de-greaser. Doesn't seem to tear up the...

    I have made quite a few arbors for slitting saws. Even though the arbors run dead true you may find that the saw seems to give you an intermittent cut. These are not cheap saws either. I have never...

    I'm not sure what your tolerance is but they have some .014" wide for $40.

    I have used diamond coated bronze saw blades that thin with good results. I would think it would be asking a lot for a carbide blade due to the brittleness. You did not say what you are trying to...

    My Do-All has tires. It did not have them when I first got it (used) so I assumed it didn't need them. I found that after a while the blade wouldn't cut straight and tended to wander regardless of...

    Welcome. I would not start out learning with a tapered thread. Start simple. You need to learn how to use the half nuts, coordinate your hand movements to stop the lathe and withdraw the tool bit and...

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their suggestions. I hate it when someone asks for help and then disappears.

    Some advertising twinkie said "we are going to roll back prices" and these idiots took it literally.

    That looks promising Brotherfrank. I have about thirty tool holders and I really don't want to spend a lot of time making something. Yes I could machine some high hex nuts but there goes a day I will...

    Yes a picture would be very helpful. However without knowing anything about the design, I don't think a bearing clanking around in a hole is a great idea. You said that the design was supposed to...

    I was looking for something a bit more elegant then tape Matthew. Plus everything is covered in cutting fluid or oil. I think tape would be a PITA. I was thinking some kind of little plastic...

    I actually do use the air hose sometimes but I hate to send chips flying into weird places. Yes Digger a shop towel would stop the chips but then I've got a shop towel with chips stuck in it. I know...
  20. Keeping swarf out of quick change tool holders set screws

    For some reason it seems like I am spending more and more time digging swarf out of quick change tool holder set screws. I keep one of those magnets on a stick near the lathe and that works pretty...

    If standard non Victory holders work with you QCTP then I see no reason to replace it. If non standard holders did not fit it then certainly I would replace it. Does the AXA size work with your...

    I don't bother putting them back in their original boxes but I do put them in a padded drawer in my Vidmar cabinet next to the lathe. My mill is on the other side of the cabinet so it is not much...

    Well if you want to keep it simple then I would get it as close as possible in your lathe. Then I would get a three stone brake cylinder hone and stone it by hand. The spring loaded stones will give...

    I would not use anything abrasive in a bronze bushing. It is too easy to leave abrasive material embedded in the bushing. You didn't say, but if this is oilite bronze then you should consider that...
