    Welp, show us what you came up with after you fix it then.

    As capacitors dry out they lose their capacitance. This results in more drop on the DC bus on each cycle.

    Bending it back certainly isn't going to make the steel stronger, and definitely won't help cracking concerns. The correct way to fix this is to cut out the damage areas and build new. If you aren't...

    How big is your air compressor? I feel like ours would keep a sink empty by blowing on it.

    Work holding can be a significant expense, especially when the rigidity of your part changes so much. Also consider deburring.

    I think some people are just starved for social interaction. Either they don't know how to make friends or are unbearable to be around.

    A slitting jig on a linear rail might work, but I'm not sure of the power/rpm requirements of a slitting saw.

    I have used a slitting saw in a die grinder and it was... interesting to say the...

    Definitely need a slitting saw, and no, a minimill won't do it.

    You can even use existing machinery as your idler, so long as it can run unloaded. Start your mill and lathe for a little extra help starting your compressor, for example.

    They are not as strong and need a good support to hold them. But they are still quite strong.

    Bottoming involves much more tonnage than air bending. The goal of bottoming is to press hard enough...

    The brakes are a bit out of adjustment, but work fine for everything else. The adjuster for the inching function doesn't make enough difference to get any smooth inching. We just have it backed off....

    Those seem fine. Not sure how much they cost from there, but if it feels right, go for it. Otherwise used dies or polyurethane dies are available on ebay generally.

    In any case I recommend...

    Our Hyster goes into neutral when you press the brake. Supposedly it's so you can press the gas to lift the forks without shifting to neutral. Except that shifting to neutral is extremely easy, where...

    Do you guys always pay asking price?

    If I know it's not worth asking price I'll tell them my max and see if it's still worth coming out. I often offer less once I see it because it's not as nice...

    Probably pony up for the contemporary stoves.

    Nothing contemporary is cheap, other than the build quality.

    We will probably need a picture. If it's just a standard V belt then buy that instead.

    The only trouble is with homemade phase converters with unswitched pass through legs. That would allow the motors to attempt to start on single phase.

    No need for a stopping point, just stop the press before you bottom out. A V shaped die works fine, but if you bottom out in an acute die you will have a very hard time getting it back apart. I've...

    Dies only explode if they are hardened. I wouldn't bother with hardened dies here.

    Oh, on that note I don't spin the drill to tighten the chuck. I give it a twist by hand and it holds perfectly.
