    Yay! I'd been hoping for a reply like yours!

    I know how to build a sheet metal rectangular chute (as you call it). And I have a nice dust extractor unit I just finished wiring up today. Purrs like...

    I measured my gears. All 7 diametral pitch. I have 3 with 38 teeth and one with 32 teeth for an idler. Actually the 3 matching gears are double gears with 19/38 teeth. So I can use either the 5.714"...

    I remember those pictures! Amazing! Isn't that actually a pyramid roll, though?



    I don't see any capability for one end of a roll to be lifted on the machine you show pictures of.

    I'm thinking of a roller built on the lines of a sheet metal slip roll only quite a bit heavier. Three rolls about 12" wide somewhere 3-4" diameter. I used to try to use a 22 gauge slip roll with...
  8. make a dust collector to fit a KO Lee 6x18 SG?

    I ground some cast iron awhile back. The iron was beautiful but black dust was spread over a wide area in my shop. I've looked for a commercial solution but can not find one. I have a good little...

    Many years ago a wise person told me don't do any work for inventors. They never have any money and they always want to do things over and over again and almost never is there any ultimate payout....

    Why not take it to a calibration shop? They will lap it in as necessary and provide you with calibration papers also. Yes, it will cost some money but a truly flat surface is useful in many ways.

    I once bought a large faceplate from a scrapyard for about 10 cents a pound. I don't remember its diameter but it fit on a lathe with an L-9 spindle nose. I'm pretty sure it was between 3 and 4 feet...
