    I never saw a lot of viscosity difference in the common oils. The ones with "active" sulfur will work with your heavier tougher stainless and alloys, but will stain brass and make plating of brass...

    I can go down to Poth, Texas population 2000 and get Ken at Ken's Farm Parts to swage together any fitting I bring him. Like someone else mentioned if your shop was not all tied up in the sale you...

    Earlier I mentioned that the spread factors and need for sanitizing were not adding up. Just heard that a mother giving birth and nursing her child is not real likely to pass on corona virus....

    To many posts here to keep up. Sometimes it is the local perspective. Just watched the news this morning about New York City, man are they having it bad.
    If they bail out of there they will spread...

    I made an aluminum bronze spacer for the clutch setting on my tractor. The mechanic took it with him in case he needed again. He called when he got back to his shop and said the bronze was magnetic....

    Just talked to the head of EMS here and they are happy to get my half a box of expired N95 masks. They are allowed to use them with expired dates now. These expired in 2017, my secretary lives next...

    Funny that you mention the ebola panic. I remember seeing the video of the EMS in Dallas delivering pizzas to the family of the fellow from Africa. They were pushing the boxes with a stick towards...

    Being a tight wad farmer I use them again till the elastic disintegrates, I have tried to figure out how to tie on more elastic, but they break next to the staple and are too short.

    I do my part...

    One last question if you decided to share 1/2 of your available masks with a hospital, would they take them from a package that has been opened but the bag they are in has been closed most of the...

    Good to hear most of his posts were very helpful to those that asked questions on screw machines, it would be a shame if they were permanently lost.

    Don't forget farmers on open tractors need masks too. I just checked my boxes, they are N95s and one box has 1 and the other 5 or 6, so I am set for this season. I asked an old timer here what to do...

    This covid19 is a different deal, I wish there was proven research on it.

    If "lung to lung" transmission is the only means then masks and social distancing will really help. And all this cleaning...

    Funny that you bring up bleach, I had my hands in clorine based cutting oil quite a lot in my first machine shop job. I developed a localized skin condition on my hands and since gotten rashes from...

    There was a time when little shops everywhere made do-dads that people needed and wanted. I copied and pasted this link from another website. I found the advertisements to be enlightening. Every one...
