    Definitely something to think about. In my case I already did. Its a "horses for courses" thing.

    I'm not doing this for a living, so my priorities are a bit different. Settling time might be a...

    I'm definitely at 3 now (making a Kingway and a stand-alone level). Depending on the final price I might go four.



    I'm committed, and am OK with paying (via paypal) in advance.

    In for two, maybe three if that helps us hit the 10 piece price break.

    Is it possible that the "0" punch at the Bport factory was damaged and making a mark that looks like a "C"? Or is it very clearly a real "C"?

    HGR's business model is based on volume. Get it in, get it out. You don't have to worry about a Rustoleum rebuild from them, but their forklift drivers have busted many a crank handle. I'm not...

    Oops, I wasn't clear when I wrote "fit a new one". I meant fit a new shim, to replace the trashed one. I definitely agree that it doesn't make sense to fit a new gib unless scraping everything.

    OK, I'm hearing a consensus here. Sounds like I should just put it back together and run it.

    I certainly don't regret taking it apart and cleaning it. I found several oil metering units that...

    I had a bit of 16mm (0.630") TGP bar laying around - cut off a couple 2" lengths. The main problem with the dovetail measurement is that my mics only go up to 6". I had to use a dial caliper for...
  11. Series 1 Saddle - scraping and oil grooves

    I have a new-to-me 1969 B'port. Came with an Albrecht chuck, 6F-B power feed, Acu-Rite AR-5 scales and model 200S DRO, and a slotting head, all for a bit under $2K. Evaluation is on-going, but I've...

    Yes! Don't fight it with dowels, make something that self-aligns.

    Actually I was thinking he should make a crude 90 degree version of a curvic coupling.

    Imagine each plate as a clock face. ...

    I visited a shop where they had to make a big batch of "L" shaped parts from aluminum blocks. The inside of the "L" was about 4" x 6" x 1-1/2". Shop owner found it to be MUCH faster and cheaper to...

    I have a #12 VN. As others have said, they will move a lot of metal for their size. I picked up a 5-1/2" 12 tooth face mill a few years back, and fitted it to the spindle nose.

    I would NOT attempt to use a VFD to run the control circuits of a CNC mill. At best you will be fighting electrical noise problems, at worst you will fry the CNC controls.
