    No, there really is a place for cheap indicators. You set those up first and do a check. Not a dimension check. If the first indicator isn't smashed, you go for dimension. :D

    Of course if you're contemplating graduating a dial for metric dimension moves with an imperial pitch screw or vice versa that's a whole different calculation.

    Tell us if that's your problem and...

    The divisions relate to the lead of the thread, that is, how far the slide moves in one rotation of the dial. So, assuming the graduations are marking thousandths of an inch, the 200 dial will move...

    Yup, my mistake.

    According to my informant, the Graf Spee was damaged enough she couldn't go out and face battle so put into port. Argentina, as a third party would allow repairs only to...

    Somewhat OT

    In odd encounters, I met a woman not long back whose father was a diesel mechanic on the Bismark. An interesting story. Crew were stranded in Argentina after the scuttling. Not POW's exactly but...

    And recovering from the cold, yet. Glad you could DRAG out but how do you COPE? :D

    Great! Well you've got that question licked. That has some parallels (no pun intended) to other synchronization schemes.

    $2.50 offer here. That's the best so far. How long do I have to wait?

    That looks good and I hope it works as well as intended. I have a question in my mind about synchronization of cylinders. Hydraulically, if they're all attached to a manifold at the same pressure,...

    I'd be giving you a harder time about it if I'd never done that myself.

    The other five screw ups didn't make it into the video. At least that's how my videos would go.

    Well, there's some assumptions and stereotypes. Ever spent time with no work and no money? It's a different perspective on the "anyone can get rich" trope.

    That's an interesting article on camshaft machining. Particularly on making adaptation to a general purpose machine for the specialized requirements of the cam shafts. It's probably a reasonable...

    It's probably just a sign of the times. Those are "alternative pages". You get to choose what numbers you want to use.

    Whoa, dial for Z? I've never had a lathe with graduated movement along the ways. That's what created a market for the Trav-A-Dial company. For short movements, many of the old lathes may have had...

    I have trouble remembering which way things go too, so usually resort to some sort of logical cross check to clarify. In this case, I see that a larger gear is driving a smaller on, meaning that it...

    Just for fun I did the math. An insert at 90 degrees with a 40 TPI shank can have an adjusting ring with 50 graduations giving .001" increase in the bore with each division. If you mount at an...

    By which he means that the lathe pictured has no compound slide and no tailstock. It's unusable as shown unless you can find the parts it needs.

    I guess I assumed (with all that implies) that the DeVlieg angle was to make the graduated ring come out to some rational number using the same thread for the insert, 40 TPI if I recall.

    Not just you. The self promotion is sometimes a little tiring. There are several threads for classes so no one could possibly forget or overlook.

    Probably just as well you didn't find him trying to find out how hard some other body part would get.

    And was told in the tool design office that a new guy years back was drawing something 2X scale and asked if that meant he doubled the angles as well.
