    Most people don't recommend buying used units on Ebay (although some people have had good luck). Even an good quality AB on ebay may be risky.

    Several people on the forum power their B-port with...

    I can crank mine with my pinky wrapped around the crank. I would estimate less than 10 ft.lbs. of torque.

    If your's is hard to crank maybe the lines are plugged if you have a one-shot lube. Or...

    It's always interesting to hear about different prices of these machines around the country. A couple weeks ago I registered for an online machine shop auction in Springfield MO (FG Machinery). ...

    Glad it's settled.

    This thing happened to me last fall. I bought some specialty tools from Italy (no U.S. maker of these tools). After I'd already paid them, they told me they misquoted the...

    Makes sense. Do you know if there has been any actual testing one whether or not rubber machine pads actually increase or decrease resonance at the tool/work contact point?

    I read a lot of the past threads here on how to level a mill, and it always seems to boil down to personal preference on some of the details. ForrestAddy used to say you could practically bolt a...

    I think cutting it off is less likely to damage the spindle splines, but it's probably not going to be easy to cut through.

    There is no phillips screw in your pics. Did you mean allen screw?

    Be patient if you can. It's a very good price for that model welder in good shape, imo.

    Before I bought a Dialarc, I used a cheap AC/DC Miller buzz box for years. It only had a 20% duty cycle but I could weld all day in the heat with 1/8" rod. Never seemed to faze it. The fan even...

    Thank's to both of you for the answers. I'll move forward with the plan.
  14. Can I use one 24v power supply to run a ventilation fan and a work light on a mill?

    I recently bought a new (used) work light for a B-port. It's a decent quality Halogen light. It runs off 24v. Takes a 70w bulb.

    I have a 24v power supply in the same box I use for the VFD for...

    The dog teeth definitely broke off that hub. . The bull gear normally comes out as an assembly. The assembly comes out by first removing the Hi/Lo shifter pinion (that whole pinion pulls out with...

    Thanks.

    I took your advice, sort of. I'd forgotten Ebay. I looked for some of the good lights on Ebay - Dazor, Sunnex, etc. and didn't see much which interested me. Then I remembered Milacron...

    His ring is different than some others in that it goes around the quill, not the spindle. Do you use yours on a B-port?

    The reason I ask is that the pic shows a nice fit around the milling...

    Thanks for pointing out the AWW Model-C is halogen. Read the description too fast. Thanks also for the review on it. Much appreciated.
  19. Danray/Moffet vs. McMaster work light for a B-port?

    Looking for a couple replacement work lights for a mill. Would like to avoid buying junk. Sunnex, Waldman, Dazor are top notch, but priced over the top for me. Thinking about something more in the...

    Adam,

    As I recall the book mentions something about sending the spindle to be reground with the quill, insitu. But in terms of replacing spindle bearings, I doubt regrinding happens very often,...

    The drawbar has threads on the end, but they are there to "draw" up an R8 tooling (R8 collets, R8 adapters, etc.)

    It looks like there isn't any tooling in your mill, so the drawbar isn't going to...

    +1 on that. Another way of saying it is I've almost never bought a good quality tool with which I've been disappointed.

    Even if it takes longer to save for a good quality tool, it's worth it imo....

    If you look closely at the head, the long hex nuts on the left side are there so one can still get a wrench on them with all the hardware/features on that side (i.e. the scale, the power downfeed).
