    My well guy recommends shocking the well with sodium hypochlorite once a year. Definitely a good idea if you suspect any sort of biological contamination. Get the real stuff from a pool supply.

    Never machined any that hard, but it's bound to be better than UHMW.

    Pictures please, and a dimensioned sketch to the best of your ability. I've had to reverse engineer a lot of stuff like this, but I've had the part in hand. If you only have inch thread pitch gages,...

    I have a Heavy 10L and have been putting together the change gears. I haven't needed them yet, so it hasn't been a priority. It would certainly be easier to work with a machine that was designed to...

    I can't speak to 3-jaws, but I bought a Sanou 6 in. (150mm) 4-jaw for my SB Heavy 10L. It is a nicely made chuck. The only detail that required attention was the fit of the jaws in their slots, which...

    Congratulations, you have found and cured a major portion of the problem. Is there a thrust bearing at the back end of the screw? Does the dial move in and out slightly as you reverse rotation?

    Backlash is just generally at odds with the perfectionist nature of machinists. It is sloppiness that exceeds our level of psychological tolerance, which is in the tenths. The minimum amount of...

    How far have you dug into this? My SB Heavy 10L had 140 thou (!) of backlash when I got it. Tightening up the bolt that retains the nut got rid of most of it, replacing the missing thrust bearing...

    A 3 in. lap will probably be more than enough. I have been trying to separate the 1 in. lap on my test piece and have failed, even trying to pry it apart with a small screwdriver. Just be careful not...

    Well, the braided picture wire failed much too quickly. Not sure if it was just the flexing or sharp edges on the eyelets. I decided to try a different glue.

    I agree that .026 depth is beyond the range for straight nitriding. Iirc, the practical limit is under .010. As for your current dilemma, the parts will need to be re-made. The heat-treaters we used...

    While most of the concern had been focused on driving the cutter, I'd be equally concerned about holding tolerance. Are the bushings intended to be a press fit? If so, your hole tolerance is...
