    I was thinking the same thing. That's a hefty shell mill for R8. Generally the arbor size correlates to the mill size. IMHO, 2" is a good "large" size shell mill for R8. Going to be a bit of digging...

    It's basic human nature to want to try to put the pieces back together again... but you must resist that urge to preserve all of the forensic information contained in the fractured surfaces.

    Those are good pics of the failure. There is a lot that can be learned from them. Unfortunately, I haven't kept up on that and it's been over a decade since I learned all that stuff in college so I...

    Are the long. feeds off by the same factor? I find it interesting the lead-screw is right but cross-feed is off.

    No worries, that was my first thought also but as I read through the posts it occurred to me that it wouldn't work the way I thought.

    Unless I'm completely misinterpreting your suggestion, that won't reduce chip thickness. The teeth would still cut their full designed load. There may be a way to use a series of special bushings...

    They're readily available as comm-bloc surplus in many places.

    No, but you're on the right track. The way I was taught, 2 different ways, #1 I wouldn't try on a picky customer's gun just in-case.

    #1 Wrap a thin piece of oiled leather around the barrel and...

    Is it possible they were tracers and imparting a ton of photons on the image sensor as they streaked across the picture? Possible they were tracers that were old and the tracer compound was leaving a...

    I must've missed that neat little prism when he developed it... and I can't find a sale thread for it. What's he charging for them (not-machined)?

    I'm going to bet it has to do with the peck tapping. When the tap hits metal it loads/flexes a bit. A peck will let it unload and pecking changes the dynamics of the tap especially right when it gets...

    The duramax doesn't have "way more power" than those. For a general idea (w/o looking up specs) just look at displacement. Your duramax is a 6.6L, and those are 4.4L & 3.9L (the 3.9L isn't large...

    Simply put, no the products you linked will not work.

    You seemed excited that your cylinder could "do 3000 psi" whatever you mean by that. Then you linked to a valve that has a max pressure of...

    That's the nature of machine tools. They almost never appreciate. Tools that sold for tens of thousands in the 50's sell for just thousands today.

    I see them fine.
