    In case anyone thinks exotic animals or foods are required---or that it could not happen here in the US.

    It can, and it did.

    Evapo-Rust(R) Is Available At These International Suppliers

    No one has mentioned Evaporust. It will remove the rust, and not affect the base metal.
    While submerging the part is ideal, it is not...

    Here is another idea to consider.

    Given the limited access, mount the vial housing and adjusting mechanism in a thin walled tube, which is then inserted into the casting and held in place with...

    I like it.

    You mention the adjustment range, and possibly adjusting this by changing the taper of the socket taper.

    There is another option to consider. Place the 1/4-40 thread off center so...

    Forrest.

    Thank you for the correction.

    It is an embarrassing mistake. Not sure how long ago or why I got the idea that the hand of the threads needed to be different, but I had thought that...

    With the central shaft and the threads chosen keying the carrier will significantly limit your adjustment range. If the keyway is 180 degrees out of where it needs to be you could have to move the...

    Here is what I described drawn out in concept.

    If I were making one I would have knurled knobs on the ends of the carrier and the central shaft.
  8. I have been working on a differential thread...

    I have been working on a differential thread adjustment design. Without knowing all the dimensions no final design is possible, but I did want to outline the design. The height of the casting is...

    Put a flexure in the middle, so you can put in two vials, one less sensitive, and one more sensitive.

    If there is room, but in a differential thread so the sensitive level can be adjusted as...
  10. Is it sticky as soon as you start to reverse it,...

    Is it sticky as soon as you start to reverse it, and stay the same--or does it increase as you get closer to being fully retracted?

    When you say you backed off the thread dial, you are referring...

    EDA level 100H

    Here is another option for screw on sensitive level assemblies- though would need to find US source. This might not be hard as Travers tools sells EDA levels.

    I personally would use the scotchbright as a last resort- because it is designed to be abrasive. There will be times that is what you need, but for me that is when other things have not worked.

    A...

    I watched all of of the videos, and noted some errors.

    In the first video he calls and labels the idler motor as a "pony motor". They are not the same thing. A pony motor is a smaller motor used...

    One option would be to use a thin abrasive wheel and cut slots through the pits perpendicular to the travel of the saddle. By angling the wheel you can cut the slot as a small dovetail. This will...

    I do not know why you would intentionally start .002 below the centerline. If you want to grind a true taper, you need to be on the centerline.

    I would want the table elevation locked. The small...

    In using the term "high humidity" and not "rain" I am assuming you are talking about machines already under a shelter.

    ripperj is correct, the knurled portion should spin in one direction.
    The spin will be clockwise looking from the endcap you removed.

    I would not soak the entire micrometer unless I was...

    I reviewed the parts manual. It gives part numbers for two spindles. One is identified as "main spindle", the other as "main spindle camlock". Chances are are it is a d1-4. Chances are it also...

    If you can get some Evaporust, try it. Hopefully you can get to most of it with the abrasive strips mentioned in prior posts. For the areas that are harder to get to, the...

    The design of the spring calipers goes back to when a shaft and bore were made to fit each other- not made to any measured standard. If you have enough time to make repeated adjustments and...

    In my case the run capacitors contributed to its "generating". It also took time for the voltage to climb. I was using a timer to kick in the mains power to the idler after starting the pony. The...

    Last spring I was setting up a 10 HP idler to start with a pony motor. I had a spare VFD available, and so used it for the pony motor. I anticipated having a lower inrush current due to using the...
