    I never got a response from either of the metal sellers in the UK on my O1 query. I was just ignored. The CRS arrived from Canada. The cost was $17.00C +...

    I disagree. There will be arcing. The cap acts as a small battery keeping the appliance energized long enough to create an isolating air gap. It's easy enough to test, don't take my word for it, test...

    I think you guys have it all wrong. The purpose of a clamping diode is to block back EMF from exceeding the the reverse bias voltage of the driver transistor. Since there is only a switch, this...

    The Baldor drive flanges on mine were not true. The hub diameter was also large. It is unfortunately all too common, but do not compare the Baldor with the Chinese copies sold by MSC or Harbor...

    Hi Larry,
    I'm pretty sure you're right. I'm not in the US and inch material in Europe is almost non-existent. I'm going to give this a chance and I'll throw it in the scrap pile if it changes shape....

    That is certainly a concern. Is that always the case in your experience? Would it help to stress relieve it first? I have had that happen with bar stock in Germany, but never in the US. I am pretty...
  17. Need help locating a local shop with a cup grinder in Germany.

    I am restoring a neglected DoALL 1612 vertical band saw. This was exposed to rain and the top blade guide mounts to a 1" x 1.5" post, which slides up and down positioning the top guide according to...

    That price is scrap weight and it looks like a machine in good condition. Of course, the real cost is transportation.

    On every lathe the angle plates and witness marks are just a rough indicator of angle. They were never designed to be spot on. Spot on is what you do when you set up the TA. There are several...
