    Another cast iron repair question

    I've done some cast iron repair, usually successfully using silver braze. Now I've got a potential repair with a wrinkle.

    An enameled cast iron fry pan dropped and broke the handle off. If it...

    My recollection of using one was for things like a keystone shaped punch with precise radii on the corners. Tolerances were fairly tight. You could get everything done with the Grind All. Angles,...

    If you grind the kind of parts that require one, it's invaluable. If you don't, it's just an expensive paperweight. I hope you find someone that needs it.

    I'd be absolutely astonished if one was made commercially, but you can do one yourself. Just buy the nut and wrench.

    Reality is unitary but no two people can see it from the same position at the same time. I found it interesting that a religious/spiritual figure would point that out. Usually the religious leaders...

    I heard an East Indian monk once say that "if two enlightened masters agree on everything, you can be sure one of them is a fake."

    The way clamp doesn't look like it fits to a V-way. If so, that should narrow it down somewhat.

    It takes an EN6 at the tail and an EN8 at the front. These are separably magneto bearings and the back one is in a blind hole so you'll have to make an expanding puller to grab the outer race. I...

    I was going to suggest a slightly different strategy with the nut. Weld a round plate to it to serve as a temporary face plate, mount it up on the Hendey and face it off. Then he can bolt the...

    I have no particular advice on magnet replacement, but refurbishing as a square should be doable. Lap or hone the cylinder and it can be tested for size and straightness. Then check squareness and...

    Certainly your easiest path is finding the right backplate. However, there would be ways to make up a temporary faceplate that would then let you machine and fit the backplate you need. Speak up if...

    So it sounds like you're trying to get the Hendey set up with a new/different chuck and you need to fit a back plate but your only other machine isn't big enough to thread this.

    What if anything...

    Mine says 4/EASL No.37/198/65 - 85431. Head is Ali so that corresponds to what Rich got from Ed. The "65" in the number might be a date code.

    I've got a scraper that's a dead ringer for the lower one in the picture. I did have to replace the motor bearings (angular contact) after one of them shelled out, but fortunately no secondary...

    I've got a small handful of parts in my toolbox I call my high buck paperweights. They WERE going to be good parts.

    Things could be worse.

    Back in the late 60's a friend of mine outfitted his car with a rolling block carb, touted to improve efficiency since WOT presented a straight cylinder with no butterfly and shaft. I don't know how...

    I presume it's because it's a location reference, not a load bearing machine element, but Denis may have a better explanation.

    I'm no hydraulics whiz, but doesn't fluid just feed from one side of the large cylinder to the other during the small cyl/fast advance part of the stroke? Then the mechanism in the large piston...

    Cole,

    You might consider adapting a hand immersion blender for the pepper grinding. It's designed for a detachable working end and shouldn't take that long for your 12 Qt. batch. If that seems...
