    My mill is NMTB 30 taper--I'd certainly take that over the R8. No chance you could get a 40 taper instead?
    I really wish that was what my machine was equipped with.

    All of the 30 tapers...

    That was my first thought when I saw the pics and the models. It's fine to test someone's ability with a
    challenging part but, in my view at least, the part should have some relevance to the real...

    I've never seen anything like what you're describing but that doesn't mean they don't exist--the world
    is a big place. Would be dead simple to make something that would do the job. Just run an...

    I'm not really criticizing either but it's nice to have more info when you're being asked for advice. Lots of
    different ways of approaching something like this.

    Sadly, most of these "I'm gonna...

    Make a small V-block out of a piece of hardwood or aluminum and have someone carefully hold the pin

    Since those holes are wallowed out so much that's probably the best idea for fixing this. Years ago we used to do
    a lot of custom automotive work and we had a number of reamers ground up for...

    The key is not "jammed", it's just tight. If you want it out a couple good wacks with a hammer and a sharp-edged
    cold chisel will lift it out of there. Square key-stock is so cheap there's never...

    What are you welding? If you're dealing with products that "require" a certification you'll often find that the
    buyer will state what level of certification they require. Since you're not in North...

    A 7/8-32 thread is a "standard" size--listed in Machinery's Handbook. The fact that the tap is adjustable makes
    it quite unique. As to usage, could be almost anything...

    Sounds about right. :D This ain't rocket science. If you move the legs in from the ends a bit I'm sure the
    2" tube will be adequate.

    And a little hint: When you attach the legs angle them out...

    This is a very good point. Get two (or more) guys swingin' on the thing at the same time and the load goes
    up quite a bit. I'm thinkin' the 2" Sched 40 pipe is a better bet...

    Speaking from experience, I don't think the deflection will be anywhere near that much. Remember you've got two

    I agree. I don't think there's much hope of bending 2" OD x .050" wall brass tubing without some support on the
    inside. And even then you'll most likely have to anneal the tube at the points where...
