    Bet that doesn't work. The mt2 socket is in the front of the adapter, not the back. Like cyanidekid said in post 18, the Sheldon stub is off the back end. When you get the adapter cut to the...

    Don't combine. Some of the threads (the big one, in particular) long ago devolved into nothing but name-calling and a political pissing match. That thread should be deleted. The rest, for now, focus...

    Some of the 'short' MT5s you may find will still be too long for your Sheldon (I have a Sheldon too). Most are not hardened, and you'll probably be saving time and frustration to just turn down the...

    Looks like there may not be a whole lot of copper left to turn! Can you tell by looking at the end how much is left?

    You describe the pads used by the thousands in every hospital. At the moment, I doubt there are any available.

    That is grounds for a lawyer! You ought to be able to get punitive damages as well as actual costs. Go for it, but be sure to tell us how it turns out.

    Instead of a lawyer, sounds to me what you need is a much more visible gate! Hang some highly reflective panels on it and see where that leads.

    JIC type fittings are fine, and readily available in numerous configurations.

    There are a lot of hydraulic fittings available with swivel capability on a pipe thread. They're mostly plated steel, but should be ok for coolant. You don't need to use the crimp ferrules either....

    Last die set I made from S-7, about 6 months ago gave the HT co a bit of trouble. They used a double-quench of some sort and took a couple of tries to get it where I wanted it. There is an...

    The question is, did they exclude one person businesses. The list from the gov in PA makes no distinction.

    With no thought about how many people may or may not be at a given place? A one-man-shop has to close? Heavy equipment operations where each operator is in his own vehicle, hundreds of feet apart?...

    All my riveting was in the mid 70s during A&P school. We just set the air for the size and type rivet and after that the only 'adjustment' was how long we hit it. 99% of what I did was aluminum, the...

    Agreed. You introduce the equivalent of 'backlash' in your adjustment if you do anything else.

    dwebster, I have the same chuck, same vintage that you have. I loosen the clamp screws to the 'barely snug' point, make my adjustment and tighten them up again. I never have any drift on the...

    Have you priced powder coating? Might not be as pricey as you think. You don't say where in Utah you are, or how long the object is, but there is a place in St. George that can do pretty big stuff at...

    Well, Don did. I wondered something similar a few months ago and he clarified the misconception. I'll see if I can find it.

    Funny, my experience has been quite the opposite. I've used thousands of them and find them to be extremely strong in shear and good for pullout IF they're used in a properly sized hole in solid...

    I've wondered about that myself. I have a microwave in the shop, sitting on top of the mini-fridge. Its only 5 ft from the pedestal grinder.... maybe I ought to take a look inside!
