    I use both Pandora and Spotify, both charge what I consider a modest fee for access to an incredible amount of music. Well worth it, I don't have to load cds or touch anything for the entire day. ...

    I'm curious too.

    The entire lathe is just so clean, original paint would not be unexpected.

    Does your part ring if you tap it on the overhang? If so might want to try to damp it in some way to avoid resonance. I've used something "gooey" stuck on the back of the overhang with double face...

    have you inquired on the woodworking forums? It isn't just the lathe needed, it's the skill to handle such a thin piece. Not at all trivial, will want to whip around like crazy

    Thanks for the replies.

    I tried the acetone test on the 2 blocks, along with a piece of clear Lexan. The labeled block and the lexan were affected in a similar way by the acetone, while the...

    How to identify polycarbonate

    I picked a couple of pallets of materials, mostly jig plate, at a bid sale recently. There are two labeled plates of black polycarbonate, 3" x 12" x 24", and 2 unmarked pieces 2-3/4" x 24" x 24". ...
  12. How to cut composite aluminum/hard steel rails?

    Wondering the best way to cut these Isel linear motion rails? They are hardened steel shafts mounted in aluminum. Seems like an abrasive cut-off blade that could handle the steel would clog up with...

    Might make sense to post a list of what is for sale with prices to save your friend from an avalanche of phone calls. Much more efficient for everyone.

    55" x 65" doesn't fit in a van, too wide, or too high if standing up(frightening!)

    Best thing would surely be to find a 3' x 4' x 4" granite plate, but this is out there waiting...

    Thats what this is, top from some sort of machine, holes, base & all. Been sitting outside for a while, hardly pristine. Is $200 too high for this?

    Yes, that is good advice Bill. And welcome back, missed you. I've been looking for some time for a local 3' x 4' without any luck.

    But, I have to admit I kinda like the challenge of dealing...

    If I cut it with the Skilsaw, should I take all 3" at once or several shallower cuts?

    Segmented or turbo blade? Wet(hose) or dry?

    This would not be part of the router, just a flat reference surface to assemble on with for maximum precision, using indicators.

    In halves, we could probably wrangle it onto a pallet on a hyd...
  21. Cutting a 6" thick granite surface plate?

    I've been watching locally for an old 3' x 4' granite plate to use as a reference flat for building a small, precise cnc router. Just saw a 55" x 65" x 6" plate on craigslist cheap, but it's on the...

    Could you wear them with glasses, assuming the corrective lenses are correct? I don't have $1000 to drop either, but I sure could use that longer working distance.

    Not using them for machines, but for marking metal and lumber ends for id. A few squirts and I'm done. Rattle cans are WAY faster than any other way.

    I used to like the Rustoleum rattle cans, but I hate the new cans that will spray upside down. There's no way to clear out the nozzle and feed tube to avoid clogging.. I can remove the nozzle and...
