    Well, that may be, but if the spindle is bent and the taper is ground that way he'll be grinding it twice, which is also a waste of time since he'll have to repeat the grinding again later. Grinding...

    It sure will, but not massively. Any liquid will release some molecules as gas - put a full glass of water on the counter; does it stay full? The same goes for lead when it's liquid. And tin too....

    I think for most uses there really isn't much between them. Having run Bridgys for ages, getting my Wells Index was a slight improvement but generally I could do everything I can do on the Wells on a...

    Both of these are flux core solders. The "66" means they contain 3% flux. 282 is a little more "active" than 44, so it will have a little more cleaning action. Both will work just fine for any...

    Pulling the spindle on a turret mill doesn't take long at all. IMO there's no excuse not to. If the spindle is bent, depending on how badly it is bent it may wear the bearings out pretty quickly...

    Bob, these guys with the super clean machines are generally low volume and don't have production going on. You really ought to post some stuff, I know there are lots of guys here who would be...

    I think a better weld should eliminate the fretting all by itself as long as there's a good tight fit. That example doesn't show much penetration as far as I can see.

    Absolutely remove the spindle and do a full inspection. That's the only way you're going to know exactly what's going on. Check TIR of all the bearing fits as well as the shoulders/faces.

    And who...

    Those are the type of factory wipers used on G&L horizontal boring mills. They work pretty well in my experience also. I would note, however, that they do use a felt wiper behind the spring loaded...

    Maybe make up a D1 backing plate fixture for one of your lathes that holds that stub end in alignment, and another for the tailstock with a split bore that clamps on the T/S barrel to hold the other...

    The ones I mentioned were about 3 feet long with a 1⅛" or so bore. They make a hell of a boom. I used black powder and newspaper wadding also. Rammed down tight with a little ramrod I made to go with...

    Yes they are core drills. They are for enlarging pre-existing holes. Punching through a cast hole for instance to rough it out. Note, the part of the pattern in a casting that creates negative space...

    John, do you use the Sandvik blanks or something else? I am looking to make a few new scrapers soon, thought about just using some old cast iron grade inserts.

    Temper the parts. Untempered D-2 will probably be too brittle to be of much use anyway. Unless you're making a letter opener? And you especially need to be extremely careful if you are grinding...

    Boy GregSY you have been a cantankerous old goat lately... Everything okay?

    I had a very similar problem a while back with a 5 HP motor. It was occasionally having trouble starting and always pulling way more amps than it should've been at low frequency settings. Very jerky...

    As I recall, there are quite a few UK members here as well. And if you have some more unique items and are willing to bundle them for good prices, I would bet that some of them would sell to the U.S....

    Any particular reason you are this specific? Just curious as I recently picked one of these up secondhand for my own mill. Haven't even got to try it yet.

    I got one of these recently too, think I paid $50. Mine is a die, so it can go on a shelf until it's needed, then I just stick it under the arbor press to use it. I mostly use it for a shear too.

    I'm sure there isn't a man here who doesn't have respect for those serving our country in the military. So lighten up a little. And raising a boy so he doesn't piss his pants at a little bit of a...

    Good stuff. I made a few of these years ago for 4th of July booms. Had to stake them to the ground. Set off a lot of car alarms too. :D

    I think GregSY is referring to the general public boys of today, not those fully trained for war by the military. There is good evidence that he's correct from one of my friend's sons who just...

    Yeah, there's a lot more iron in the base and knee. This might show it a little better. Look at how the 747 flares in under the turret, and the 847 flares out. The bottom pic is my own 847, it's got...
