    The best way to handle this is load it up with all the tools and possibly add some. Put my address on it and ship it. Send me a private message if you need my address.
  4. Question for those that machine silicon bronze

    I am not trying to machine this but rather need to know what to do with it. I inherited a 1000' spool of 1/2" silicon bronze cable that my dad bought to re-rig his sailboat. I inherited the sailboat...

    The tang is a bit odd for a tailstock mount but from the looks of the part of the cone that is loaded up I agree that it may be used to clean up a wonky center hole. Not sure why you would need this...

    I think it would be safe to say that the process tat takes the longest would be the first to be addressed. There are circumstances where you have to consider cost vs benefit. It may not be...

    It might be better to tilt the rotab and grind the pins with a dressed cup wheel. The fact that you don't have a lathe limits your options somewhat. Not saying it can't be done, it's just going to be...

    Anybody who would work on that road would need some kind of shoulder harness to support his nuts.

    I agree with gbent. If you have to go a couple of hundred feet then 3/4" is way too small. You might have to fight a fire or something and you would want a lot more water then 3/4" can provide. I...

    A chuck that fits the threaded spindle on the side opposite the blade is about the only useful item I can think of and have ever used. This allows you to route on the radial saw which is actually...

    That is a great idea Rons. I don't suppose the heat of making and breaking would melt the solder. I am going to go to the shop now and scrounge through my relay collection. Thanks.
