    Once you get close through any of the above mentioned methods, you can add another hole to the side and thread it for a set screw. That way you can fine-tune the balance using the actual position of...

    This is a fair point. It also brings to the forefront the question of how you manage that any better than a search engine.

    You said it doesn't put a drag on your resources just to maintain the...

    Only issue would be when newbies decide to repeatedly start threads asking what granite means, instead of doing any reading and/or critical thinking. Then we'd keep getting hit in the face with it...

    Agreed.

    Further thoughts: since this would require direct intervention from an admin for each member, maybe we can get a link to an obituary (if available) added to the member's profile at the...

    As has been stated already, the best thing you can do is use a non-contact method to measure the thickness/Cross-section of your seal all the way around for consistency. Ovality of the seal itself in...

    Yep, so the pitch is 32 and a two-start would have a lead of 16. A four-start could be made with a lead of 8, and it would still have a pitch of 32.

    I believe the correct terminology is 32 pitch, 16 lead.

    32 pitch means that there are physically 32 threads for each inch of fastener, and 16 lead means that 16 rotations will advance the...

    Yep, it's the spitting image of (a little brother to) my 1968 19" Regal.

    I agree, looks like a nice pickup if you're happy with what you paid for it. I might have bought one just like it if I...

    I just looked into the X4 and the article I chose to read was disparaging that phone for lacking a number of "key features" like an all-glass design, dual rear cameras, and some other nonsense that...

    This reminds me of an example of such a standing deal in the Crash Test Dummy industry. The two major players (Plymouth, MI and Huron, OH) each had their specialty. One had the best instrumentation,...

    Hey, that will be perfect for me when I need to make qty (2) shaft-bore adaptors for a rotary oil seal test. Spend an extra 10 minutes on the setup pieces, and then let 'em run on the tester for...

    Viton I usually associate with black and brown about equally, but it's the only thing I know of that is brown.

    HNBR (Hydrogenated Nitrile) is what I think of when you say green. It also comes in...

    Brown is most commonly FKM (Viton). If you measure .100" the standard cord stock size is almost certainly .103"

    Is the application an automatic transmission? Viton holds up to ATF better than the...

    Haggerty Metals in Plymouth lets you look around, saw some gutted out machine bases there, but it was specialized stuff, never anything like mills or lathes.

    When I say "hot" I don't mean "sear your meat hot" but more like a "if I were showering in this water I'd turn it down" hot. Usually lines up pretty well with the end of a meal. Leave the pan on the...
