    Try a cordless impact driver. Much more common and plenty of torque. Adapters for sockets are readily available. Most folks nowadays already have one.

    First, I don't want it to be lost that I agree your TS adjustment is likely the issue. The point I was trying to make is that if you don't know the condition of some other things, and if you are...

    In a perfect lathe you're correct, but there is no such thing as a perfect lathe, even the best are somewhat off of perfect, just different amounts. Therefore gripping a part (tightly/deeply) in the...

    As has been suggested you have the cart in front of the horse turning with tailstock support without knowing both the condition of bed twist (leveling) and head stock alignment. An important question...

    I think JST is right, 1500W of panels is measly for Alaska. I have 3800W in Maine, and my parents have about double that. Here this produces more than my/our usage in summer, but not in winter (we...

    Cole is correct, the OP is referring to pipe not tube. There is a difference between the two in both terminology and specification.

    I'm picturing a U or C shaped piece as the final product. I'm wondering if the vice is collapsing the shape when it becomes unsupported, and pinching the EM or allowing the workpiece to move.

    That quote was in response to you saying basically “nominal is what I say it is” because the article said “it” can be standard or proprietary so I can make it whatever. I was pointing out that in...

    I’m getting trolled right?? I never said it’s exclusive to size. I used voltage as an example. You insisted that size was not mentioned in the article. It was, a lot.

    I get that, hence leave VFD on mill and get a rotary for other equipment.

    Variable speed heads exists and would certainly be the easiest thing to swap in or mimic, but you've already got the VFD on the mill. Run the lathe and grinder and any other future equipment on the...

    Your original quote from the article literally says nominal size. The majority of the things in the article are talking about the size of them. None of them talk about color. Stop trolling. And in...

    And your opinion is way off what the rest of us know as fact. The concept of nominal is not hard. Learn it.
