    You have the center in a sleeve. You need to get a center that fits your tailstock without a sleeve, the sleeve is just one more place for error and movement.

    Ok, I have to ask. What do you have in the background? It looks like a K&T knee and base, but I don't see a column. What looks like the column is offset from the base. Do I need to get my glasses...

    My guess is it is an extension for a facing head on a horizontal boring mill.

    I don't understand what you are asking, as you have already identified the boring bar. Purpose built for a specific job with a specific length and diameter. At a previous shop we used to make...

    Be glad the center didn't pull the bar into perfect alignment. If it would have, when you removed the turned piece it would have been bent. If you want to turn good work using a tailstock center...

    I would ship all contents in separate packaging. The drawer slides aren't made for the live loads that will be encountered in commercial shipping. I'd just put the toolbox in a large cardboard box...

    Here is your problem. You need a new accountant. It will be an accounting firm, not a sole proprietor. Depending on how much you need them to do, the cost could be in the neighborhood of 1/2% of...

    I realize it was a rhetorical question, but put the 19" Carlton in the junk yard. At 30,000#, it has real scrap value. There are very few people who can afford the rigging and the cost of the...

    Sure it's hard, but it's so thin it doesn't matter. Just tired, not retired.

    Surfacing such a small head should not be a problem.
