    It might be pricey but a knife maker's supply would have a decent supply but maybe be too high a price.

    I wouldn't exclude quality imports from the search - a nice Rohm or Bison will be better than a beat-up Clausing or Buck.

    These things are made by people and can usually be repaired by people, maybe just not you (same for me with SMD boards, can't see them well enough to repair them). Open it up and take some pictures....

    Pretty sure that the one shot would still need meter units, just slightly larger ones. My experience with the one shots is that they have a pretty significant volume.

    Here's what I think you're...

    If you have the gearbox set for threading the leadscrew should be turning. There is a shear pin in the output to the leadscrew, it's possible that needs replacing.

    I replaced the Bijut meter units and fixed my apron pump. I don't think I've had to put oil in the apron in some time, I might top it off once in 5 years. I'm not sure where the claims of slow...

    Sure - if you pop the taper pin at the gearbox end and pull the end block off it should come all the way off with little fuss unless you have the half nuts locked.

    He's asking for an adhesive to stick metal to something, not a metal to act as an adhesive (not really sure what that'd be? A low temperature solder?)

    Yeah, I had a brain fart and said "taper arbor" instead of "expanding arbor". But the point is that you want the material held as rigidly as possible under the cutter so that the pressure of the...

    As I mentioned before you don't have to bypass the FFL, just hold in the start button (it's a bypass on the FFL) to see if either tube is firing. Now swap the tubes and see if the problem moves with...

    I think you're confusing grid with filament. Grid voltage should be more like 20-30V (can be 500), filament is 2.5V.

    As for cold starts, the drive has a built-in 60 second timer before you can...
