    I've had 2 over the years that came with collections of mandrels, but both got sold. They do appear on ebay with some frequency, if you can wait long enough you'll find one.

    These are awesome! Thanks for posting the photos!

    My vote would be for a Fellows gear shaper, an old one like a 6A.
    And every shop needs a hoist or crane, like a gantry crane or portable hoist.

    My way is to call the road service tire guy. The hydraulic tools that they have make it look easy and the guys that do that job don't seem to mind it. I hate truck tires so it's an easy decision to...

    I bought one of these from Ebay for ~ $60 thinking it would serve in my apron pocket better than a mic or 6" caliper. So far i haven't warmed up to it because I try to hold it like a 6'" caliper and...

    Can you get a bite on those with a sharp pair of side cutting pliers, one jaw in the hex and one on the OD? I've done lots of standard buttonheads that way, push in bite on and turn.

    I was also looking for them in a larger size to fit Swasey locking screws. How important is appearance? I thought of maybe using slugs punched from brass sheet using something like a RW hand punch?

    I keep a small coldfire aerosol unit on my portable torch cart. It really is an impressive product, puts fire out way faster with less volume than any other extinguisher I've ever used.

    In PA it's called 'Use Tax' meaning they collect for the purchase here instead of at the point of sale, when the sale is not taxable at the point of sale, I suspect NC is doing the same thing. The...

    The seller never sees that money. Ebay collects it and send it to your state. If you have a NC exemption or can claim it for manufacturing, you can file that with ebay, but your seller has nothing to...

    It's easiest if you have a craigslist account and renew it through the account. The 'Account' is just a dashboard that holds all your listing in one place and shows you how old they are and what has...

    Aligning is different from initializing. When it needs initialized, it acts lifeless. Once it is initialized it can then be aligned. First time it happened to me I thought I blew it up somehow. This...

    I'm looking at Smartcam for exactly that reason. The underlying tech dates back to the old school smartcam of years ago, which gives great control over the toolpath geometry, instead of creating tons...

    Thanks guys, but it's not going to turn and I'm not going to be drilling or doing anything precision with it ever again. Just need the welds to hold.

    I want to weld a 14N chuck to a mount for a fixture. Just a few skip TIG welds on the back(top) of the body. Before I venture onward, has anyone tried this and had it succeed or fail? Not knowing...

    My first thought is a scrapyard for the bars, since they must be solids, and the alloy doesn't matter. I have local yards that resell material like that for about half or less of new cost.
