    WTB: 3/4"-6 Acme RH tap

    Does anyone have a 3/4"-6 RH Acme tap that I can purchase, or possibly use and return?

    I am making a book press and would prefer to use Acme threaded rod and need to make a brass nut for it.

    Do you have the need for a 48" push? I work on a lot of big stuff, and never has a need to have that kind of push/pull stroke been needed.

    Could you instead build yourself a tall press frame...

    I learned from another machinist that you can drape a shop rag over your tool and it will keep it from spraying, it just climbs up the rag. It makes cutting brass much more enjoyable.

    Yes, I really accelerated my understanding of mixing bulk epoxy yesterday.

    A puzzle to you? Imagine the shock and defeat I felt when a $300 hardened glob of epoxy falls out of the bucket.

    My user name is Farmer Phil and I live in Kentucky, it should be assumed I was...

    Just finished setting the plate; ruined one batch of this stuff the first go at it. Man it hardened so fast (five minutes) that we are very confident that it will work.

    I cannot answer that. It is driven from the motor in a different building via a drive shaft connected with u-joints. I do not believe alignment to be as critical.

    Correct, our focus is the surface. One will find no disagreement from me with regards to how it should be bolted properly. I came here for guidance and I'm receiving exactly what I'd hoped for.

    There are epoxies used to install liners in crushers in the aggregate business so I am confident that this will be a suitable repair given the right conditions to apply it.

    Very valid points are made and I cannot take a stance against any of them.

    Once we are able to have a somewhat flat surface then we can/will address the bolting.

    If there are, I'm at the right place to find out.

    We know how to repair correctly. This is a moment where a gun is to your head and just right solution but wrong time.

    A new plate has been made and the bearing housing is flat, so only the machine has a worn surface.
