    Hot dog cart is not going to roll out today :D

    Cutting carbide endmill in half

    Hello all, I've got a 3/8" dia roundover endmill, solid carbide, which for some unknown reason I bought in a 3-1/2" length, double ended.

    I need to run a part with this, but it won't fit in any of...

    Thanks, very relieved I don't have any "hidden parameters"....because if it did, I do not have those.

    I have all of the other parameters, which I got via photos when I first got the machine,...

    Since you sort of have to automate the heater (is it going to be on 24x7 except disabled when the pressure switch "calls" for air?) you could build a rigid foam enclosure for something easy like a...

    Imo any forklift you buy is not going to be that useful unless it fits inside of the container. Also they don't make containers with slots for the load chain in the ceiling that I'm aware of. Seems...

    I like the punch-slugs-in-a-closed-box idea. Then, add steel shot to it, probably have to buy a pallet of the stuff. That should help fill in the voids to give it more appearance of solidity. Imo,...

    Just a WAG here but an H60 will probably lift 8000 lbs @ 2 feet of load center despite that not appearing on the nameplate. A Hyster has a "little extra" built into it. Lets just say 4 feet back...

    I would also add that you can figure out the max diameter of the "wheel" that will fit between the center post and the vertical frame, but placing any clearance holes, etc, into it would be done on...

    Agree with above but would have to see the internals to make a final judgement. Ideally there's no need to put "liquid pressure" on the seals. But, at the same time, the lube pretty much "climbs"...

    Those don't look very exotic, probably just some 62XX bearings. 4pc x 6209s should be good for more than 10k as I recall. The trouble would be having a spotlessly clean surface and something...

    My guess is this puts you in VFD territory. There isn't a whole lot of wiring. The biggest issue might be finding a "dry" spot for the VFD so it doesn't need its own enclosure, internal to the...

    A little late, 6061 aluminum jaw inserts, pull into pockets with super small screws #2-#0 from the backside. Sort of like a carbide single point insert but with a tapped hole in the insert instead. ...

    Isnt a Fadal 15xt a 20-20-20 machine? I think the regular vmc15 is a 20-16-20 but I could be wrong. More reliable than an Arrow, and better supported from what I read.
