    Not for sure, looks like the same prize in his mouth. Of the hundreds of coyote photos only ones with a prize period, 45 minute span time span makes me think it is. If one shared the prize with his...

    I get my brass bars mostly from Farmers Copper here in south Texas. Sometimes that mention the bars I get are "Swiss quality". Does not bother me a bit when that happens as I can run them without...

    Looks like it is time for some humor. They say a good belly laugh helps a person physically as well as emotionally. Hope Lymy is as happy as this coyote doing his happy dance. Showed off his prize...

    I only saw 8620, sorry. Would expect 8740 to be direct hardening, confirmed by Dan. Some direct hardening allows are tricky, no experience or knowledge on this one.

    I would try another heat treater before attempting it myself. Bodycote has a lot of facilities. One in Los Angeles. Pack hardening may take several attempts to get it acceptable. In the end you will...

    He had no container to carry water but had to cross several rivers and creeks on the way. Probably got a drink every other day or so. The grievous wounds he had were the worse part of it. The apples...

    Used to think lead pipe's only use was for bad guys to hit someone in the back of the head with. Learned from the Flint Michigan fiasco that there were actually houses with this style plumbing and...

    Thermite mentioned coolant or air for clearing chips. I generally flood with cutting oil and have no problems, never use a key and have never spun a blade. I do not think anyone asked but are you...

    You will use it again and it will be partly paid for. I let one go with the Bridgeport I sold. Sort of wish I still had it but my replacement mills have 30 tapers and the right angle fixture was R8....

    Maybe I am missing something, why not use a boring head held in a right angle attachment on your knee mill? If your tolerance is not real close you could set a cutter in a regular fly cutter by...

    I went to a seminar conducted by Hardinge on collets many years ago. When boring emergency collets in the 1/2 inch range make the hole .001 smaller than the size you are chucking. This will give the...

    I would expect that also. Maybe whoever tied it in the open position to make it run without air. Omniturn will be most helpful either way. If you are forced to run without the brake I would run it...

    I have 2 running converted machines. Y axis is horizontal so no need for a brake when the machine is off. Seems logical your machine would need a brake. Fail safe is if the pressure goes the brake...

    You said it better but that is what I was pointing out in post #71. All said I would buy new, the pins are a press fit scrap the fifth hole on the hub and all your work is for nothing.

    Larry,
    You suppose they did not line up the key on the collar when reinstalling? Cutting the tube with the idea of lengthening it since it appeared too short when they tried to reassemble? If so...

    Do the counterbores the pins fit in have some slop? Maybe allowing them to be locked in place by tightening the screw from the back? You sure of the .002" clearance on the pins? Maybe a math mistake...
