    You can get the same finish with a form tool as any other tool if it is honed properly. You just need to pay attention to any chatter that may develop because of the possible increase in surface area...

    True temper...I'm not sure howbhigdog made his but I have made piston cups before for water pumps. If you soak leather it becomes quite pliable and then when it dries it pretty much stays in any...

    After starting this post I was walking past one of my tractors and noticed the sediment bowl was leaking. If any of you have any experience with these you will know that the material used is somewhat...

    I agree with the others who say that this is a critical safety device and should probably be replaced. If that is not possible for some reason then I think your best bet would be to use a helicoil or...
  5. Do you use leather in your shop and for what purpose?

    Good morning. I use quite a bit of leather and was wondering if others do as well. When I suggest the use of leather I sometimes get some funny looks from folks. I think it may be considered as a...

    Who is considered "essential" is a very good question. My son is a mechanical engineer for Phillip Morris here in Richmond and they opened back up on Saturday. The last two weeks he has been writing...

    I have not had good luck gluing anything to UHMW. I actually had to do something similar to what you are describing not long ago. If you had access to a boring bar you can turn a groove in the bottom...

    No. Nothing like that ever happens to me Digger. And I never lose small parts that are launched by my wire wheel either.

    I have a table similar to that one. Not long ago I had a problem with it raising so I took the little plug out and filled it to the opening with fluid. It went up fine after I filled it but then it...

    many years ago I worked in a motor rebuild shop so I have done this quite a bit. Turn the comm down with a tool with a good radius on the nose and quite a bit of back rake since it is soft copper....

    I don't know if you have the equivalent of Harbor Freight (basically cheap imported tools) but they have a one ton arbor press for $50.00. There's your rack and pinion.

    I have gone through two used dishwashers in the last thirty years. I usually just use hot soapy water and detergent but I have used a commercial water based de-greaser. Doesn't seem to tear up the...

    I have made quite a few arbors for slitting saws. Even though the arbors run dead true you may find that the saw seems to give you an intermittent cut. These are not cheap saws either. I have never...

    Here is another source.

    Barranca Diamond Blades


    I'm not sure what your tolerance is but they have some .014" wide for $40.

    I have used diamond coated bronze saw blades that thin with good results. I would think it would be asking a lot for a carbide blade due to the brittleness. You did not say what you are trying to...

    My Do-All has tires. It did not have them when I first got it (used) so I assumed it didn't need them. I found that after a while the blade wouldn't cut straight and tended to wander regardless of...

    Welcome. I would not start out learning with a tapered thread. Start simple. You need to learn how to use the half nuts, coordinate your hand movements to stop the lathe and withdraw the tool bit and...

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their suggestions. I hate it when someone asks for help and then disappears.

    Some advertising twinkie said "we are going to roll back prices" and these idiots took it literally.

    That looks promising Brotherfrank. I have about thirty tool holders and I really don't want to spend a lot of time making something. Yes I could machine some high hex nuts but there goes a day I will...

    Yes a picture would be very helpful. However without knowing anything about the design, I don't think a bearing clanking around in a hole is a great idea. You said that the design was supposed to...
