    The first thing I do when looking at an HLV is check bed wear. especially at the Headstock end. Also check for wear on the nearside dovetail. They seem to wear before the backside dovetail. That...

    What started the ball rolling was that he was BLACK, get that into your thick head. He had a target on his back more or less from the day he was born.

    If he's been WHITE there is ZERO chance he...

    I used to run an old K&T No2 horizontal mill, if I had one of those that would be my preference over a BP.

    ..

    Total BS, you could put a 12" scale across that and see daylight underneath the center. I'm wondering if you've ever trammed a head or used a BP

    In Surfcam if cutting 2D splines you adjust the Curve Tolerance, .001" would give you a segmented finish depending on the curvature, that's what I would use for roughing. For finishing I might change...

    I could if the Cat House was in deepest Utah, but then he'd have more than three.:eek::crazy:

    Jeez, imagine if they were all PMS'ing at the same time.:eek:

    Entirely depends on how well you tram the head. You could tram in the middle of the table, get it perfect, go 10" in each direction and it'll be off. Over 18" of travel my BP would cut leading edge...

    I guess I was illustrating if you used a 8.25 dia flycutter you would need 18.25" of travel, 14" dia would require 24" travel etc etc. Either way it's problematic.

    If all I had was a BP i'd do it...

    If it's 8" wide that means you need min 8.25" diameter (or more) flycutter. and if the heads 10" long then your going to be traversing 18.5" in X, so unless it's a brandnew BP it's going to rock. And...

    I've been straigtening thin parts over my knee, on the edge of a table, or run it thru my neighbours rolls for the last 30 years. Thin parts like your never going to machine and get consistantly...

    The question should be when inserting the jack into the socket, feeling how it inerts, how could you possibly think the difference in diameter .0015 could make possibly make a difference?

    He doesn't need you too state the obvious, he listed his inventory fully expecting to get PM's from people here. It was a sales pitch disguised as a complaint about the mods overlords. None to subtle

    The test requirement was likely valid, the reason being that for the material being tested the customer had data at -100F. Testing at -100F would be to compare the test data to already known data at...
