    I think the Ames Triplex mill/lathes used that approach. No lead screw, but they had a threading attachment behind the headstock that worked off of thread masters. Mines incomplete/missing...

    I use water soliable coolant in our 15x48 Colchester Clausing lathe (1960's vintage), and in our big Fosdick sensitive drill press (1930's or 1940's). Both don't seem to mind so long as i keep it...

    I don't think anyone is out to get us with any of this technology, but I do think that those behind the tech are putting stuff out there faster then they themselves can keep up with. The concept is...

    Those old mechanical feed units work well for what they do. They're fairly integrated into the lead screw though, so IMO unless it's been gutted of parts or is a total basket case, you're better off...

    ^ agree'd. Nearly all of my die accuracy issues have had zero to do with material or tolerances and everything to do with the post placement in relation to the die and how much slop there is between...

    Success! Had a good trip. Only really used the stove for breakfast while we were at Yellowstone, but no problems and it didn't even stink up the car. I also brought along a single...

    Just a thought on the "made in USA" trend: IMO it's not all about quality. We American's are proud of ourselves, sure, but I think just the notion of supporting your own is a point few tend to...

    I'm no help, but interesting design how the back gears are all on one end, instead of straddling the cone pulley on seemingly every flat belt tool-room lathe.

    The t-shirts/hoodies are my standing request when my wife or parents ask what I want for birthday/Christmas.

    Dad taught me at a young age to invest in tools and skills. I don't always buy tools because they are "needed," but because in some way I feel a bit of stewardship for the job they do.

    You have to...

    We also have one of these saws. They're limited on how big a piece they can cut, but are excellent for small precision work. Ours gets used for making small cutting pads for die machines, and for...

    We regularly make blades out of D2 with little effort. Often you can buy stock exactly the size you need, cut it to length and machine whatever cut-outs, holes, or slots it needs, mill a bevel where...

    As other suggest above, I've wondered about machining an adapter plate and intermediate shaft to use a more modern and serviceable motor on the old blue heads. You could cut the gear off of the old...

    Multi-tasking is a similar balance. Keep your mind active and avoid dead time, but don't set yourself up to have 1 machine crashing while you are in the middle of tending to the other.

    Ebay is the ultimate garage sale. I therefore tend to use it to find used parts, tool holders, accessories, original documents, hard to find components, etc. but not for consumables. I'd rather buy...

    Seeing machines like that gives me the same vibes as hairless cats. Just ain't natural and gives me the creeps to think of touching them. It's a mind game, like someone...

    Depends if you can separate friendship from work, and for how long? Would you still be friends if he ends up loosing you money? And of course we all want to be optimistic, but it's a risk every...

    I'd consider your spindle time as an employee's time. If deburring a part in machine makes the program 5 minutes longer, that's a win if it would take 10 minutes to manually do so. You have to...

    I got the "off" brand fuel at my Wal-mart for about $8.00 a gallon. The name brand Coleman stuff was $12.00 a gallon.

    They had kerosene too, but I'd like to get that in bulk from one of our local...
