    I followed my own advice, and bought an 8150 cutting plier. It's similar to the 8160 I bought in the 1970s, but the next smaller size, which is useful to have. Cost about $25. Micro-Bevel 112.5...

    Scothbrite pads are color-coded. The white scotchbrite pads do not have any abrasive.

    That sounds right.

    I looked up the kitchen undercabinet lights. They are 3000K with a CRI of 85%.

    These were bought in 2013, and I don't think they are made any more: Philips "eW Profile...

    Depending on what is being displayed, that can be safety-critical for sure. Or merely mission-critical.

    This enclosure will get the full treatment and review.

    See next posting (#122). I'd think that those advertisers would very much want to reach your students - absolutely a key audience for their products.

    Yes, but what is the specific kind of application. It matters - some things are more critical, or requires special attention.

    Don't forget to locktite the screw into the cone, to keep it from slowly unscrewing. Or, cross-pin it.

    But I bet that in the old days, this was made by a blacksmith.

    A big issue is how much shop space you have (in square feet), and how much headroom you have (in feet). Old manual machine tools often go for basically the price for the iron, and so one can do very...

    I bet it would be cheaper to just buy a replacement lathe and ship it to your shop - pay freight just once.

    I have one of those, bought in January 2007.

    You will hate me. It came from Harbor Freight, item 36629, but they no longer carry it. But they are still available:

    Hardware-store rope is dangerous for this. For something that heavy, I would use nylon slings intended for hoisting, with guaranteed load capacities. They are widely available and cheap. I would...

    I asked a Swedish friend (who bought all his tools before the 1970s) if Lindström is still good. He called the company in Sweden, and found only a sales operation. It turns out that Lindström is...
