    The new motor does have over-temp protection and I installed a float activated auto drain bowl right after the intercooler last spring, what a time saver!!!! One of the best $30 I ever spent. The...

    rons, thank you for all of the information. I think that SMC pressure switch is $78 direct but it doesn't look like it would like being outside, minimum of 35 degrees. I wonder if it would handle...

    As I read it the single-phase switches only go to 3 hp.

    rons, more info please! I did look for one of your posts on this but never figured out the right keywords. What model and what else did you get to make it all work?

  6. Need help finding a pressure switch for a 4hp compressor

    The contacts in my Square D Pumptrol switch are fried after 6 months. Upon further investigation, I see it is only good for a 2hp motor. After looking all afternoon, between part changes, I can't...

    My go-to for something like this is an epoxy for wooden boat building, System 3s General Purpose epoxy. In thin layers it is clear, it is a marine epoxy so contact with water is not an issue, and...

    It is my understanding the white filter is to remove moisture from the air, and I wonder where all that moisture goes? Does it get water in the tank like recip compressors do? They do look...

    More retention force certainly makes for a stiffer connection no matter what taper.

    Have you called Hyundai's tech help to see if they will advise you about this? Some MTBs will, some won't. No experience with Hyundai but I have pulled a few spindles. Does this one have a...

    With a new blade not and not cutting too much you don't need any lube. The thicker the section the more you need some lube. Your 1" x 1/2" would be no problem. I cut 1" x 1-3/4" all the time...

    Figure an hourly rate and keep track of hours worked. When it gets slow I don't log many hours. I own most everything personally and lease it to the business, leaves far less for disbursements.

    At least try a corn cob rougher, they do use quite a bit less hp. The chips are a lot denser so you may have trouble clearing them. Also minimize the projection of the tool, stiffer is better.

    They are small drones, powered by RC motors or weed eater motors. Funny part is I almost had to beg for tolerances, generally no prints, only cad models, real low key. Just wish they paid quicker...

    I get more done with less distractions, after all, I am working to make money, not to just spend some time in the shop. For those times I need someone to bounce ideas off of or ask for help then I...

    Are Boeing drones considered aerospace? Although the tightest tolerances I have had to do was for fiber optic test equipment, lots of .0002" tolerances. Never mind years of plastic injection molds.

    If you control the temperature then it is not an issue. I have an aluminum tailstock for my cast iron 4th. I made it in a hurry 18 years ago so that is why it is aluminum, it works well enough I...

    Steel expands about half as much as aluminum. You had another problem causing .005" of movement.

    If memory serves this machine has very low drawbar tension, like around 350lbs, so be very careful when milling. Corncob roughers will try pulling the tool down far less than any other endmill so...

    The main argument we have is at the end of the day it is hard to beat these type machines for throughput if you are doing any kind of production, and they are very energy and space efficient.

    I have heard of them sending it back into the grid but never storing it for the upcoming acceleration. I think this is more like what F1 does, short term, high burst storage. That is interesting.

    The last time I looked Lyndex had the shortest gage length face mill holder, but that has been a few years ago. At least try the stubby sidelocks, Maritool makes them 5/8" and smaller. The more I...

    I would try stoning it out first, masking the good section with tape so I didn't hit it with the stone getting most of it out. I have done the home shop regrind myself with a high-end die grinder...
