    There is not nearly enough information given to allow even a wild assed guess of the loads. Find a structural engineer with experience in small bridges and furnish him ALL the relevant information.

    Not quite. The screw pushes a small diameter piston into an oil-filled chamber. The large piston at the other end of the chamber pushes the operating rod that runs through the screw. I can forward...

    I like the idea of going with lower pressure. If you use parts that are common in agriculture your costs should be lower and readily available.

    What kind of boring tool are you using? Is it "as purchased" or did you touch up the edges before using it?

    You can have the motor re-wound if it has been fried. If it was connected to single phase long enough that may be a possibility.

    I would bet it is 1mm pitch. If your lathe is not capable of cutting metric, find someone that has the capability. Machine the threads so the nut fits. If the pitch is a little bit off an...

    Same problem as encountered with cold finished steel. Locked in stress from rolling cause distortion when the surface is cut away. If you could start with .5 x 1.0 you would eliminate the cuts that...

    Not to worry. The inner race ain't gonna spin on the square shaft. A fairly close fit would be nice so the wheel doesn't wobble.

    OK, so this is a design project. In the real world we would probably design around a standard micrometer head or a dial indicator.

    Follow the advise given by the other contributors. It is all...

    Could the design be modified to include 3 tapped holes, equally spaced in the groove on the periphery? I visualize 3 lifting rings installed. Use a 3 leg sling to handle the part on and off the...

    Any so called improvements to Wilton, Palmgren, or Chinese tilting vises is pretty much like polishing a turd.

    Asphalt used as a binder in blacktop is a viscous liquid. Any long term loading will cause flow. Look at parking lots for malls. All have depressions where the tires sit. You need concrete pads...

    Forrest,
    The trepanning tools used have 2 cutters 180* apart. One establishes the ID of the bore, the other sets the OD of the core. Wouldn't the opposed cutters tend to limit deviation of the...

    Ignoring the tolerance issues.
    I would drill through 3/4" then follow with the APT multi-tool. Use the blade size appropriate to leave stock for boring.

    I have used a 1 x 42 belt sander and let the rod spin in my gloved hands. Use the friction of your grip to control the spin.
