    Thanks in advance.

    About 8 years ago I bought a Kurt 6" vise. Not sure of the number but I've never been happy with it. No mater how it is adjusted or set up, the jaw always lifts when tightening so that I have to use...

    "Be sure to lock all three cutting knives securely before operating the machine." Duh.

    Yeah, lots of states were looser on titles and engine numbers in the early days. With the advent of the computer and cooperating states, the picture is probably changing.

    That's an excellent suggestion. My big Webb mill had developed a weak spot behind the key on one of the Reeves Drive pulleys. Rather than replace it, I made a steel ring that was a plug fit. I...

    The Indian dealer was on Stony Island Avenue around the 7400 block South, IIRC. They are long gone as the whole area was bulldozed and rebuilt in the1970's.

    Yeah, Mannie! Kick Dave in the rear for his mistakes. FYI "attornies" is incorrect. Attorneys is the correct plural of attorney. But you knew that, right.?
