    Currently my shop is in a 20'x20' space and I have barely enough room to squeeze between the machines I already have (no dock either). If I could figure a way to pull if off I'd take it in a hot...

    Come one, that's not fair. That's the "Correct" way to do things. :D Next time around I'll plan ahead better and get a lifting eye for it. It's already threaded, I just didn't find that until it...

    Thanks guys, that helps a lot and it's backed up by this article that I just came across: What Plastics Are Used to Make Toys? | How To Adult

    You've given me a few more options on toys for the...

    My 2 cents: It came down to heat dissipation, the outer container was able to dissipate the heat due to it's contact with the air and it's size compared to the small parts inside.

    Interesting article, thanks.

    Material safety for small children?

    I became a grandfather a couple of months ago when my oldest daughter gave birth to twin girls. One of the first thing that comes to my mind is that now I have grandkids to make stuff for. I've got...

    If they were poor and hungry, wouldn't they be taking the meat from the kills? Something doesn't quite add up there.

    Just click on the lower left hand corner where it says "Watch on YouTube" and it will take you there.

    Interesting build, I'd want to be far away when you try it out for the first time. ;)

    I considered that but I figured it was too top heavy as this is an Index 860 mill (Sure I could be wrong but my "intuition" told me so ;)). I you look closely at the top photo you will see an extra...

    How are you planning on straightening the hole? A hand drill? You might end up with a "kind of straight" hole but chances are it'll be a little wallowed out and not be perpendicular the the...

    A South Bend 11" uses a 1-5/8"-8 spindle thread and I think there is another, more common lathe that shares that size (can't think of brand atm). While not as common as the 1-1/4"-8 it is still a...

    So true. My setup may have looked wonky to some but by grabbing it so high the very low center of gravity wouldn't let it tip. The only think I worried about was the straps snapping. :o I was...

    I would avoid epoxy all together. When it heats, you'll be breathing in the fumes. Long term exposures to epoxy can cause kidney failure, kill brain cells, damage lungs ( I know, I know, it's a...

    I moved my Index mill from upper Michigan to Omaha, NE on the back of a flat bed. At the time I left the head "up" but had to lower it to get it through the door when I got it to my shop. A couple...

    As you have just found, drills are terrible for making accurate holes. Generally, when I need to make an "exact fit" hole I will drill it under sized and then use a boring bar to take it to size.

    Not as well versed as some on here but that lathe looks older than '51 as I think they went to a double handle gear box in the early '40s.

    Just adding to the confusion. :)

    If it works for you, great. Not a bad solution but a bit awkward in my opinion. Why not take that same $230 and build your own power draw bar? Just pick up a cheap butterfly impact wrench off the...
