    The manufacturer will probably tell you it is stronger than 60° or some other such claim.

    I suspect the real reason is so that you can not use them for threading. So you have to BUY threading...

    I am thinking of those fence gates that roll or slide to the side. Some are completely supported by rollers on the gates and a track on the poles and others have rubber wheels under the gate to...

    That's not completely true. There are Excel templates that do that to one extent or another. Most of them use macros to provide the functionality. But I have found that separate, Project Planning...

    The OP was talking about enlarging it with a succession of steps with drill bits. I don't know about you, but I would rather do it with reamers which won't give me the grabbing problems that drill...

    Best drill for a new hole: Probably your Silver and Deming bits. A long time ago I tried drilling large holes in steps. It did not work well because the bits tended to grab because of the small...

    This has worked for me on smaller shafts. Get a few aerosol cans of freeze spray. Put the assembly in the press and heat it as much as you dare. Start to apply pressure and hit the shaft above and...

    The "best" platform? How do you define "best"? That is the most important question here. Another important question here is what is a good estimate of the number of sales you will realistically have?...

    OK, you are asking a bunch of machinists an ENGINEERING question. And your question does not include enough information for a definite answer to be formulated.

    This thread popped up again and I saw that I neglected to answer your question.

    I have a set that I made form sheet aluminum. They wrap around to the back of the jaw so they don't fall off. It is a simple sheet metal cutting and bending job and almost not worth the effort of...

    I guess you could call it a "swage" if it was created by the process of swagging, but I am not at all sure that would apply if it was created by another process, like rolling for instance. And, by...
