    I was kind of surprised that some bystander didn't get the El Paso guy. Pretty easy to carry there, open or concealed.

    They would have every 0.10mm, probably from 0.10 though not sure, up to 4mm almost certainly (the collets over about 3mm would likely have stepped bores). So you're missing quite a few!

    Would be a special kind of ninja that can kill 5 and injure 21 from a car with knives.

    How can anyone want to be anti-antifascism ? I'm pretty sure literally everyone I know personally is.

    Age, condition, and tooling included will help, some pics would be good too. No matter what, jig borers aren't in demand, though the really small ones are (like the size of a small Igloo cooler)and...

    I made the mistake of cleaning the mirror in a little Hauser bench top profile projector, I knew they were fragile, just laid cotton balls on wet and picked them off and there went the silvering....

    That's the first time I've seen Shark mentioned here- I've been using it for years, anyone I've mentioned it to have never heard of it including folks I know who work for Autodesk here. It's...

    It's a nice technique but I don't see a prop shaft fitting between centers on a SB!

    Before it gets locked, check Clickspring on YT, he uses a couple of smallish lathes and shows a lot of techniques that should translate to what you're doing.

    Same here, made a 6 tooth pinion a few weeks ago that was about 3mm long and 0.52mm diameter. Really need a better camera and a little light box to get any decent detail at that size.

    This was very likely a semi-production machine made in house late 1800s. Keep it as a beautiful curio but if the collets measure what you've described it's a real oddball (center height too).

    Absolutely
    You should check your arbor, then shift the cutter through 45 degree turns on it and hopefully cancel out.

    Then there's the face of the arbor (and cutter)... ..

    Gordon, considering your general demeanor, truly can't understand this thread. Someone who wants to potentially buy from you wants your bank info and you're befuddled? When I buy/sell on Swiss...

    It's been a while for me too but i think depending on export destination and year could have been dual SU, dual Stroms (prefer SU myself), and later years Bosch injection. That (sorta) first gen...

    110 yo you're probably outside of any realistic norm, you'll need to get/make drawings at the least. What sort of function does this perform? If it's delivering power or delivering "motion" makes a...

    I'm a watchmaker and make loads of gears and pinions all the time. In watchmaking the norm is epicyclic gearing. The theory is there's less frictional loss in the gearing (watch and clock geartrains...

    If you don't mind going a bit vintage the 95-96 Volvo 850 turbo was a beast. Reckon around 250hp, it was to total sleeper car. Definitely cheaper to maintain than an older Mercedes.

    My local pub has wooden doors. Glassed at the top but wood; I had my first beer there 20 years ago and it was already an old door, still going strong. It's an Irish pub (Irish owned too), nice...

    Yes that's a clockmaker staking set. Main differences to a watchmaking one is size and lack of frame to hold the punches vertically.

    This used to be common in watchmaking too, and I've run a few guys through it. Start with maybe 2cm rough cube and finish near 1cm. A talented guy will take 2-3 days for the first one, then by the...

    I don't think Jim has ever quoted correctly, to the point it must be done on purpose.

    Hmm, I was taught that drawfiling is done with a single cut file. I suppose one could do it with a double cut, then it would make sense to put pressure in both direction.

    You are correct, the teeth only cut in one direction. It's ok to maintain contact on the opposite stroke, just no pressure. I'm surprised that neither company made that clear.
