    can you get a gear puller to the banjo gears? Especially if you can fit some shim strip between the puller jaws and the gear, to spread to the force out. Then heating up the gear with a MAP torch and...

    no worries :) Quick turn around isn't a phrase I'm very familiar with, though I was able to knock out a two thread set screw for a friend tonight at short notice!

    if you're willing to pay postage both ways and don't mind waiting a week or two, I'd be happy to do it for the karma and practice. I have black, red, blue, purple and pink (don't ask) Caswell dies....

    I think that's a reasonable price. If you're happy with the amount and you like who it's going to (ie. someone who'll use it like your Dad) then I couldn't think of a better sale to make. You could...

    thanks Eric, just replied to your PM. Sounds perfect to me, I'll take it if you still have it.

    I was disappointed to see that it didn't have a set of pliers and a little saw blade built in. If I'm going to do some precision camping with my 1-2-3 block, I really need those features.

    I'm interested in the chuck backplate. How much for shipping to 78254? What is the diameter of the raised inner register? thanks!

    can you verify the pitch using a pitch gauge? If not, a dial indicator should tell you if the spindle rotates in one inch of carriage movement. Or some plasticine/ playdoh and a ruler.

    If the...

    a serpentine belt will still slip if you crash the lathe and you can still control the point at which it slips by playing with the belt tension. I'd rather have a lathe that doesn't slip under normal...

    that's true. Though if we're being finickity, you really need two LIGOs on different parts of the Earth's surface to be really sure that what you're detecting is real.

    I'm not a big one for pranks, learned my lesson after pranking a supervisor at a turkey factory. He put me on cool down duty which involved dragging 1 ton pallets of turkey through a metal roofed...

    yabbut then a couple of black holes collide a few billion light years away and your accuracy goes to shit. Who'd want that?

    Maybe you could use a mix of GPS and a magnetometer to measure the...

    keep what you use, sell what you don't. Then someone else will get the pleasure of using it and you can use the money to do something else. You could travel (post pandemic) to visit friends, fund a...

    maybe, but most of the agricultural equipment I saw in that neck of the woods was seriously high dollar - semi-autonomous combines bigger than my house that worked in packs of 3 or more. Small...

    lovely work! I'll need to do something similar soon for my wide 9. Thankfully a friend is cutting the gear for me, but I'll be doing something similar for the housing and dial.

    dude, look who's the one ranting to find out who's getting worked up about it. I couldn't give two shits what oil people use in their lathe/ car/ sex life, but if someone asks for advice on a public...

    I would have thought that would be too thick for most stuff. Maybe lubing shafts/ gears in the apron if it's direct lube (not using wicks). I have some straight 10W motor oil that I use for lubing...

    a shot of WD40 will clean that right up!

    on a less frivolous note - will you be able to reuse the dial/ needle with the new ammeter? Be more of a hassle but it would look better, especially as...

    If you're new to machining a lathe of this size might not be the best fit - parts are not available, tooling is larger and more expensive and it'll eat you up without blinking if you make a mistake....
