    Could you spell out a little more detail on what you expect or want on a refurb? Some damaged threads are obvious, but beyond that, what? Do you know what thread it is, meaning is it a common...

    I recently modified one to fit a similar lathe. The castings were robust so it looked good. Modifications were scraping the crosslide and attachment for alignment, modifying the way clamp for a...

    A safety talk to our crew some years back had an interesting and sobering recommendation. If your crane or equipment gets into a high voltage line, best stay in your seat until help comes. If it's...

    Hey, there's a whole new technique I'd never considered. So I've got this 6" x 8" cast iron plate I need to surface. Ditch that cranking all the X and Y handles and making multiple passes. Now I'm...

    Talking to Starrett would be a good place to start. If you need basic instruction on use of gauges and measuring tools, books or classes would help.

    I'm clearly missing something since I'm not following your question. There should be a certain number of threads in one inch, most often a whole number but there are occasional outliers like an...

    You MIGHT find someone on this forum with a good answer but you're much much more likely to find specific SB help in the SB forum in the specific machine section.

    I built Michael's (McgGyver) design and can vouch for it. Only a slight mod for a QCTP so it added a dovetail and used the height adjust standard for tool posts. A good design and as usual,...

    One awkward aspect of the flu vaccine development business is that it's impossible for them to ever be completely right. That is, until there's a time machine to go forward and see what strains...

    Probably because it would take so much heat the process makes it a real PITA. You can't do it with a torch. You'd heat a local area up to temp but adjacent areas of the casting and shim won't be...

    I'm not going to make a recommendation for anyone since they'll do what they want regardless. Just my personal experience and perspective.

    Or, could that be a casting defect that was welded up before grinding. It almost looks like a patch on the that face of the way that's a slightly different color.

    One option. The sleeve is a friction fit on the micrometer body so it can be rotated slightly. Knowing this you might be able to wangle it back and forth a bit while exerting pressure to slightly...

    I think he's just suggesting filling the gap between base and body so there shouldn't be a (lack of) friction problem. Just a shortcut to getting the shims right. It assumes that parallelism is...

    Heat treat regimens can also generate realignments such as the proprietary Meehanite or ductile iron varieties. It's still probably to the point to cool down slowly rather than toss them from the...

    That's really interesting. I wouldn't expect that much no matter how much stress was left. You'd think a casting stressed like that might just blow up sitting in the back lot aging.

    It couldn't be hard to make, and maybe why you don't see them in the catalogs. A piece of stock with one hole this way for the stem one one hole that way where the lug would mount.
