    I'm not sure if your question is directed at me or not. Either way, I think you may need to try again at asking the question, perhaps with an example. It is hard to determine exactly what your...

    You'd be surprised.

    I worked at a school shop which had both inch and metric QCTP's. Every term I would go through and make sure each toolholder had the correct set screws. No matter how much I...

    Dorian's are US made. Can't see why they would be metric.

    Website states they are ion nitrided. That could mean up to low 70's RC .02" deep depending on base material and process. I could see how...

    You don't need two matching vises. You can use any two vises that have the same height which you can do with custom parallels if necessary. You could also do it on the table with a sacrificial piece...

    I'd say your best bet to keep it from happening again is to not buy the cheapest thing you can find. Buy quality components from reputable manufacturers that stand behind their products.

    Sargon is standard quadrature encoding. Pinout is different, yes. I've adapted Sargon scales to work on other DRO's before. The ones I had used a DB-25 connector. Wasn't hard to figure out what was...

    Reverse that. Feeding in the compound, when set parallel to Z, will adjust timing.

    Good idea to use a dial indicator to track the location of the compound. That way you can move back and forth...

    Only two US based manufacturers of size I know of are Rolf Prima and Velocity. I'm sure you could get contact information off of their websites. I used to work closely with Rolf Prima, if you have...

    I used to use Koolmist but have found it rusts my tables and vises unless thoroughly cleaned and dried after every use (including pulling the vises). Kind of a pain the way I use my mills.

    This blog post reports a ton of data on the Model S battery life which seems much better than you write. There were major improvements in the Model 3 battery so one would assume it to be the same or...

    I do not have experience with Singer's pull studs, myself. As to why they don't pull out when unscrewing the draw bar, I think it has to do with the asymmetrical buttress thread form. They provide a...

    Mostly agreeing with Andy. In the states CAT40 is probably the most readily available tooling that easily adapts to your mill. I'd leave the drawbar alone so you can use Deckel tooling and get the...

    Nope, I do have a 40 taper to R8 adapter kicking around. Tons of stickout, though, think you'd be over a foot of stickout if you were to use it with this head.

    I imagine you would be keeping the cabinet even if you were going to retrofit but if not, I'd be interested in it. Not the PC just the cabinet as I'd like to downsize mine.
