    Go find a hobby site.

    Come to my shop see what I make and say that to my face.

    Call Ford. Right.

    If you have machines and skills to make the fucking part you're asking about you have...

    A36 can have a real shiny finish if it's run fast enough. I don't know how you'd do that with a tiny tool though.

    I made a bunch of torque converter shells from 13" 1018 and I'd take a .01" finish...

    You already said you can't get behind it. Done deal.

    You could cut access holes to get a jack in there or cut just the bent stuff out and weld new/repaired sections in or you can cut the entire...

    If you just want it to look pretty cut the panel off wherever you can make a clean continuous cut and either straighten it out and weld back on or form a new section that overlaps and weld it on. I...

    Use it. Total waste of time.

    You're going to feel real stupid when the pump shits the bed and you put 50 hours into making it look pretty.

    Every time I catch something and rip a piece of the...

    Still have all 12 of the BG's to sell. This is probably not the ideal venue for them. Time to pack, ship, deal with logistics for the bigger motors is higher concern for me than getting the most out...

    Don't under estimate the time and expensive tooling it can entail to get what is essentially two lathes and a mill in one package working like you want.

    I've known a few guys who have tried to setup a sub spindle live tooled lathe at home for products or side income and never run a single part.

    VMC's are probably the most versatile machine you...

    From my testing they will handle anything a 2.5 KW series wound 12V DC winch motor can throw at them. 2000-6000 RPM range.

    No clutch in that size range is as cost effective since nothing else is...

    I can relate to your situation.

    I find I can run several low HP mills and lathes making many more parts than if I run a single larger machine. Can't run any of the 20+ HP machines and another...

    A cheap $12 weed sprayer works great to apply diesel fuel. Let it soak a few then re-spray and scrub. Toilet and car detail brushes work good for cleaning painted surfaces.

    I have a rough Gestner just like that with a bunch of toolmaker stuff in it from 1943. Mine went through a flood (still wet when I got it), but everything cleaned up nice. I got it in trade for...

    I just peeked inside this thing, figured for sure it would be aluminum. To my surprise this thing has 100% heavy copper windings inside. I don't think I will be selling it for $750 now as it appears...

    Rewind shop near me is primarily captive to a steel mill. They do fair volume, but I don't see how they make a profit with 1/2 a dozen fulltime guys on the payroll.

    Ohmeter is fairly useless. You need a megger to check windings. Disconnect motor windings from the wires going from the drive to the motor. Megger those wires separately.

    I remember the 4 hours of sleep and go all day energy I had in my 20's. Wish I still had that at 38.

    Some old stuff used double flare inserts. Might be worth a shot to fix the threads and then make a new insert that fits into a reamed hole. Maybe some loctite for extra insurance.

    You can probably drop the runners some on a stock chain and see a good improvement with that saw. Stihl says it's rated for 3.0 HP. Not crazy, but it will do some work.
