  1. It was SPAM.

    Digger Doug got it right off the bat-

    The OP question was not a question, it was clickbait... a spammer.

    I totally get your point Tom, and I agree... but the first step is the guy getting something that will START... and once doing so, the confidence level of success has STATED. Once that has been...

    Perhaps that was misunderstood- I was being somewhat facicious, in that both of the incidences resulted in the 'same size hole', which as anyone with projectile weapon experience knows, the size of...

    I'm baffled how anyone would look at THIS 10EE and question the reliability of it's drive...

    It has none... it has a VFD in a box, and a conversion motor sitting on a plate.

    Sorry to hear about the brush fires, Jim... fortunately, you're not in California... there's still a few Aussies that know how to put out fires, I'm certain... In California, they complain about the...

    Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier...

    after having worked on LOTS of machines, but NONE of them planers... I recognized this setup from many other applications.

    Okay, Stu- I took a look at the video... at 4:49, you see the hydraulic power unit removed from the base, and on that base is a single O-ring with three holes. THAT is the key.

    You need two...

    :-D Dangit, I HATE it when that happens... Do keep your dustpan and broom handy, so you can gather up and properly recycle all those bits that fall out. We keep wasting so many, that the binary...

    The big industrial-flavor Quincy pumps have more than one operational mode, and the unloader function is the key.

    They can be run in stop-start mode... where the unloader dumps head pressure after...
  10. All cats are dogs.

    The question is subjective to more factors than just barrel length... and while I have a certain amount of respect to Gunny, comparing damage results is not a metric by which muzzle velocity can be...

    I second Henry's comments-

    Bar oil isn't precise. It needs to flow through the pickup strainer, through the pump, into the bar hole, and around the bar groove. It is 'impossible', by virtue of...

    Getting it 'all on one paper' is probably the biggest hurdle.

    There's a pile of basic concepts that a person needs to understand, in order to really get the 'why'... because the concepts occur in...

    I'll throw in a few notes:

    While the shaft RPM for your wheels is important, do your calcs based on SFPM, rather than shaft RPM. THEN... look at the bearings of the shafts, and compare that to...

    Hee hee... the problem Scrounge is having, is that he's Down Under... and gravity works backwards down there ;-)

    For a shop having only single-phase mains, having an RPC to drive constant speed machines is a fine thing.

    Having VFDs on variable spindles is a wonderful thing.

    They need not be used together...

    I'm certain that this is very close, if not exact today. In 1917, however, this was not the case... it was just grey. There were patterns and colors used (it was referred to as 'dazzle') but they...

    Turn the idler by hand... does it spin freely? If it's binding, then it will drag, and be well below it's proper run speed for 60hz operation, and as a result, your generated leg will be way, way low.
