    why do you need a 1" wide wheel? If it is set up for a 1/2" wheel, there is probably a reason, such as the HP of the motor. doubling the contact area may not be a good idea on a small grinder like...

    yea, I think getting that accuracy from a chuck no matter the number of jaws or the adjustment system, is known as "barking up the wrong tree" !

    It doesn’t matter what type of welding you are doing, all that matters is the amps and the duty cycle. There is no problem going heavier on the ground cable unless you are doing sprints with the...

    yes, I do have thoughts on an alternative. find out where it was sent for a rebuild, and make them an offer.

    That implies Yuasa is inferior to Kurt. I’m inclined to think not. They did steal the design, and not just of the vise, but their brand byword, “the pillar of quality” is no joke.

    OR; make it a habit to store the stops at the right end of the rod, unless using them as the "anti-crash" stops which shouldn't cause a problem threading. a much better, more sure method.

    this thread made me wonder why I don't use the stops more often, and well, locking and unlocking them with a ratchet is akward, and you have to stop and go get one, so I just made a dedicated 17MM T...
