    279748

    A labor-intensive business, but the intelligence gathered must have made it seem worth the fuss, especially in 1795.

    Looks as though this was for a single fixed-position observation, as...

    Not sure what you mean by large, but I have had blue urethanes on a 16" vertical metalcutter for several years. They work well. Stuck on well with a 3M specialty adhesive in a tube, which has to be...

    That's a good suggestion, as are the suggestions here that address your request re: tooling.

    As I am sure you know, time in the shop is what will teach you how to make metal behave. If you are on...

    I'm in the primitive 5-gal bucket group with gustafson, but if I had to deal with a lot of small rolly cutoffs of soft metal I would think about a conveyer belt of some sort, perhaps an adjustable...

    You got away with one here, carbide, escaping the flak for no "OT". OT or no OT, you've got my vote for OT of the year. Of course, when the award is given out, some acknowledgement should go Tci's...

    The extent and breadth of the work shown is impressive.

    An impression of grimness is common to many large factory environments of that period, and this one is no exception. The cold probably...

    1144 stressproof - can you saw up an assortment of rounds in 1-2" dia and fill a small 1-rate box for shipment to Maine?

    One just like the OP DP, or perhaps the same one, sold on govt surplus for a bit over $1200. Had a quill problem, some apparent rust/discoloration, some missing small parts. I have never used one...

    Lots of potential interest here. Understood that inventorying takes time, but more info at this initial stage would help in cutting down on back&forth mail enquiries. E.g., How small is a "small"...

    Assuming that that machine is truly "condition: excellent", and if there was a bit of sugar in the form of tooling, I would be sorely tempted. Probably luckily, though, I'm all machined up.

    My guess is that posts centering on too good to be true tooling from China aren't of much use to most of us here on PM. I wouldn't mind seeing such posts included in the same sticky that aims to...

    From my watching of the vid, they seem to have largely done away with those pesky issues, like "human error", that arise when a company puts too much stock in making use of employees. Cuts down on...

    I recently bought part of a roll of the black accordian pleated stuff from MMCarr. Good, effective dovetail protection, not cheap.

    Looks to me as though you are living on the edge. I see risk associated with the balance of your setup, particularly as you pull/push your assembly across the shop floor. Since it looks as though...

    Good scheme, Josh. I'd also like 126 but 125 would work too. PM coming.

    I have used these as cutoff saws for small stock. I think they usually come in from KEO. Because I lack the know-how and the tooling to sharpen them, I have never tried, and have just bought more,...

    I have donated to WIRES (see post #3 above). They have a website.

    This is just a reminder in case you are inclined to help out. I'm not looking for a medal.
