    Thx, tomorrow I’ll wander around among our disused stuff, ought to be something, I recall some 1” steel plate but can’t recall if wide enough.

    What thickness steel do you use for faceplate intended for average jobs?

    Thx, I looked at their site and the shortest piece they advertise in the diameters I’d want is 72 inches. Did your company ever get it in single or few-slice quantities?
  4. Thank You, neighbor Thermite!

    Thank You, neighbor Thermite!

    Yeah, sounds logical. I think a lot of the bad things happen when folks do things I just would never have expected. Like Friday a normally very good worker decided to reinstall this 1/8” o.d. Lube...

    Thx, it is a nice item and for another $150. I’m sure I can get a D1-8 backplate that I can fit to it. Big enuf hole too. Gotta pick up, 9-hr r/t is a bit of a letdown, no time for that, would have...

    Good suggestion, but you must not spend much time watching YouTube videos of what employees do when boss is out of sight; pretty scary. Some of the older folks I’ve had just do what they damn well...

    Good suggestion, that’s a possibility, a 12” would probably handle 80% of our planned faceplate/doggie work but I need 3” hole to match the lathe, don’t want to lose capability there.

    Another...

    Dear neighbor Thermite,
    You missed your calling, you ought to be writing for Rush Limbaugh or something. Definitely ought to have your own podcast or blog, ‘cause I suspect much of your wit goes to...

    293350It just occurred to me that installing a simple “high speed disable” stop would make me comfortable selecting any appropriate faceplate, including cast iron. Since I’d never have a need to run...
  11. Advice on buying safe steel D1-8 Faceplate/Driver

    Looking to buy a safe steel D1-8 faceplate for 17” Colchester-Clausing M8000 lathe. My choices are a bit limited because I can’t use any cast iron, the lathe can do 1600 rpm and it is easy to set...

    The successor to Miller Co. told me that this stuff only had one customer, which I think means it was never advertised for sale, nor is it in the 2015 list of products. So I’ll have to mix some up...

    Right!

    Ok if I can’t find the intended use, I’ll just mix some up at 10% and try it here and there. Maybe it’ll work on the one thing we’ve been unable to dissolve or clean, the dreaded...

    I noticed that all of these “special” potions require dilution averaging 10% strength.

    Maybe it’ll work as a COVID 19 vaccine.

    Well I’m still interested in info on this stuff, the gent who mentioned machine clean out might have something there since “special lubricant cleaner” kinds points that way. I went to the Miller...

    Well the gears had no splash oil for years so I’m sure they are happier now, and this machine is low rpm everywhere after the motor so I’m not worried. The two oils looked equivalent to me when I...

    I saw it cheap at hgr last year and pushed the button, and it eventually showed up with some other liquids I am using, like NuClear for thread cutting, honing fluid, etc. I just put 8 gal. Of...

    What is the application for this liquid?

    I tried asking the successor to the maker, but product names were changed around and I don’t have their input. Anyone used it? I’m sure we can use it for something if only we had a little more...

    I’m guessing a Mild steel washer with sawtooth-type profiles on both sides would be overkill. Big spring-type lock-washers? That’s so obvious I’m guessing it has been tried and failed.


    Thx...
  24. Slitting saws, round vs. keyed arbor holes

    I’ve never used a slitting saw but will need to do so soon, using horizontal mills, and as always will consider tooling onhand before buying anything. We have many different blades with key slots...

    GMTA, I first set it on our quad Walker-Turner because it has a smooth table with no T-slots for clamping. The problem with that was the mag/Gem is near 8” tall and crowds the quills on...
