    I was lucky enough (?) to use a Myford Tri-lever at school when I was a teenager and my Dad had an Atlas 6” pseudolathe at home. No contest- the Myford could be used to make in tolerance parts...

    I like my Bridgeport on a pallet- one made to fit. Mine lives in the corner unless I’m doing something long then just pull out the machine. Simple, and anything else that can go on a pallet is bolted...

    I agree the short term need for Keystone XL was dubious, but disagree that’s due to other pipelines. Suggest reading up on flow curves of unconventional plays in US. Fracking has made America oil...

    Bob, the oil will still be moved, just on trains that are less safe, use more energy, and cost more.

    If I recall correctly all Super 7’s have a clutch. If yes, I’d put either a half hp, or at most 3/4 hp 120 volt motor on it. Tefc would be better, but easy enough to rig a chip deflector if open...

    Most small shapers have a hand crank or wheel for setting up (motor off). If the OP’s doesn’t have this, I’d rig up a hand crank before futtzing around with different motors etc. kiSS ;-)

    Can’t see the Community section of youtube on iPads. Seems Apple and Google/Youtube aren’t playing nice.
