    I beg to differ. The Atlas was never more than an excuse for a lathe. The Ford 8 and 9 Ns were more than adequate for their intended tasks. They pretty much, with Ferguson, mechanized the small farm....

    I did a lot of jig grinding as an apprentice. I knew them as "mounted points". As macds said they are not likely diamond. If used in a Moore jig grinder they were intended to be used at 45000 rpm +....

    Forget it unless you just want to say it is a ground finish and have a worn out mill. The difference between a grinding machine and a cutting machine is not the tool. The entire machine is built to...

    Motion nailed it. When the load was 6 inches off the ground it was obvious that the lines toward the front were almost vertical. That means that they are holding the entire load for safety's sake at...

    I haven't wasted time on your source but either it is very wrong or you don't read well.

    No such thing. A steamship container needs either a flatbed or a container chassis

    Not going to happen. The container number must be current in the equipment register and certified for transport. Otherwise j8st flat car load and good luck with that, the railroads are discouraging...

    And his way of "going through the Holocaust " was to turn in his neighbors to the Nazis. A real sweetheart.

    Guessing that "one way" means single acting, it makes no difference at all. I assume you are restoring this machine for historical purposes. The first pic shows no evidence of ever having any Chrome...

    Amazing the clowns here who do not know the difference between a thread gage and a pitch gage, yet want to tell everyone about threads produced 139 years ago.

    What do these parts do? A "strut" is a common name for a critical suspension part. Who made the parts? That might reveal a clue.

    Why would you assume that it shear at the strongest point? It will likely occur some in between on both. There will be something left of the threads on both depending on the strength of the...

    I doubt that they are stainless steel. In aircraft applications they would likely be Monel. A 300 stainless will be hard to set due to work hardening. A good sized arbor press should be able to set a...

    While the area of the female thread would be larger, the engaged area could not possibly be larger than the male. So that is meaningless.

    The brass washer will result in dramatically less clamping force. For the most use a hardened steel washer and lube the threads. BUT it is a cast iron part and you don't want to break it. If it is...

    The scam is the air outfit. NO WAY it should cost $68000 for one flight. For those who might be interested, AZ senate candidate is heavily invested in one of these.

    It certainly is weaker. The fastener will be stronger because the minor diameter is larger. The threads are smaller and weaker. If your idea was correct we'd have fasteners with 100 threads per inch...
