    It's not a very elegant solution but it's often better than nothing. If you're working on a farm or ranch 50 miles
    from town and the baler goes down and you've got 40 acres of hay laying on the...

    All I can say is that I've been frustrated by more than one website. When I'm looking for parts on

    Over the years as I've grown my machine shop I've looked at jobs like this as opportunities to acquire new and
    different tooling with at least some cost recovery. Most tooling is...

    Yup, I agree--you get a lot of flex from a toolpost mounted drill, especially big ones. Years go I made really nice

    We changed the spindle bearings on our SAG 14 about 35 years ago. The dealer we bought the lathe from basically
    did the changeover--although I did watch the whole procedure. He was an old school...

    Fifty years of doing this has generated a big pool of "stories"--biggest problem now is just remembering the
    damn things. :(

    Got a recent one, though, so memory isn't an issue. Couple days ago...

    16 GA is .063" in steel. All the brakes I've ever seen are rated for steel, not aluminum. For a given thickness and

    First thing I'd be doing is looking at a redesign. If that inside radius was flat instead that would be a dead easy

    My thoughts exactly. Just grab a regular hole saw, stuff it in a 1/2" drill and cut your holes. No big deal.
    Don't be afraid to use lots of lube. I've cut 2" holes in 3/4" plate the same way. ...

    Yeah, setting up a fixture in the drill press would be a lot faster--run the pieces through once to drill and then

    Just to qualify that bit, the amount of point loading that a press can handle is directly related to its capacity.
    A 200 ton point load in the middle of a 750 ton press bed would not likely cause...

    You're going to need 200+ tons for sure--depends a lot on how wide your bottom die is. The tonnage required

    If the quill feeds fine I wouldn't worry about the marks; it's probably just staining. If you really feel that you must
    clean them up I would try some fine steel wool to see what it does. Do not...
