    Greg, how can you state that. You did not do the Google search I referenced did you. That NHRA National record still stands. That car is famous in drag racing circles. If that isn't high performance,...

    Greg, please do just a little research. Don't shoot from the hip. Nobody goes 6's in a full size stock 2 ton car.

    I have a 1612 and it is a super machine and just the right size. The larger wheel machines take up to much floor space. I made a rolling carriage for mine that allows me to park it against a wall...

    You are looking in the wrong place and you are looking for the wrong things. First contact Kenne Bell. He's the Buick guy. Throw the valve locks away and buy retainers and keepers that match. They...

    Few folks use shapers anymore because they are simply too slow. That makes them readily available cheap. It also makes your's uneconomical to repair. It would have to be a very special shaper to...

    In this size range, you need a speed range of 50 to 2000 rpm. This machine does not have that. The better 1340 machines have a 12 speed spindle. A VFD is no substitute for gears.

    I ran a Clayton dyno for years testing DD 6-71's. They are similar to your go-power. They are simple and work very well. They need a lot of water. I fed mine with a 2" pump from a water tank 5' x 5'...

    I guess you are assuming damage can only occur through the power supply of the PC. If so, you could not be more wrong. If the RF or EM radiation is strong enough, every conductor in that PC is a...

    I think the right answer is it depends on who is buying the tools. If it is your employer, go for it. If it is your machine and your tool cost .040" per pass is just fine.

    The correct answer is maybe.It depends on the shielding within the computer and the design of the high frequency generator in the welder. The cheap ones can be real RF transmitters depending on the...

    The IPB is nice, but to answer your question, I think those oilers just press in. I think a pair of pliers and a gentle twisting motion will remove them and if you are careful they can be reused.

    Do not confuse resolution with accuracy. They are not the same. The issue has been and is indirect position data. In an ideal world position feedback should come directly from the part being...

    Now, I'm confused. I always thought Z is up and down. Y is in and out and X is longitudinal left to right. Why would it be different on a SG? On the use of a DRO on a SG, I don't think they would be...

    I never run water base flood coolant on my lathes or my mills anymore. They are a nightmare and can ruin a machine. On top of that comment, there are good water based coolants and really bad ones as...
