    With the tool path not being on the cone angle I suppose it could look like anything. Thank you for the correction.

    It's been a while but I've milled a few parallel depth bevels. The catch is that the math is based on the small end rather than the large end. This allows a standard cutter to fit between the teeth...

    There's linkage leading to a belt shifter. The linkage is long, reaching from the far end to mid-length where it extends out of the base to the side where the table dogs can strike it. As they do,...

    We had to put ceiling fans in the shop. They work fine in heated car garages. Lots of burners, lots of trouble.

    See if California Economizer is still around. They make conversion kits to change single zone into multizone by using motorized dampers. It works on a round-robin principle, checking each thermostat...

    I used to hire shops and found the best were the *owners* that came around, even just occasionally, if for no reason other than to drop off parts and BS a bit. They would get my recommendations,...

    The advantage being you don't have to crank the knee up/down to clear the cutter on every pass, using the cross feed instead. Strikes me as a trifle more difficult to set up that way and far less...

    Agreed, but I know of at least one garbage dump that has been sealed and shut down. Under the dump is an aquifer. To protect it, a large pump sucks the ground water from under the dump and spews it...

    A few years back, one of the city water wells blew up from a power interruption. The water hammer knocked the 24" pipe off its flange and the building filled with water (so did the street). At the...

    Did anyone grab a picture of the operators side of the New Haven planer? Pictures of the the feed handle area, where the crossfeed tick adjustment is made would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a...

    Coincidentally I've had two people asking about using my old iron planer to resurface heads this week.

    In the past, a universal mill with the table swung a tad, 10" flycutter in the horiz spindle...

    The literature said a man ran his house with it, even making hot water. I saw v-belt sheaves for the generator and a large chain sprocket for something, I'd guess it was part of the axle, made from...

    Camp 18 Restaurant

    The wife and I have driven by several times without realizing the extent of this place. Located in northwestern Oregon, this 25 foot tall bandsaw was built in 1929 by the Sumner Iron Works of Everett...

    It'll update repairs to current codes, otherwise you pay the difference.

    The fastest my 5 foot planer table travels (est 1000 lbs) is 720 IPM. The machine was built in 1850 and the Vee ways are just fine. I suppose the original lube came from sperm whales, but I use a...

    I have a feeling this one came from the Hillyard repair shop near Spokane. I've read at one time it was the largest railroad shop in the country. Nothing left but oil soaked dirt now and they're...

    Mine had no belt, so I threw a tape measure around things. It almost landed on 10 feet, so that's where I went and with a glued joint to pass through the shifter. Slap the belt with your hand,...

    I painted myself into a corner and discovered that my horizontal mill can cut internal threads, somewhat like an old lathe without a dial. The old B&S mill has two suitable feeds - too coarse and too...

    This is pretty lame in comparison, but in a similar spirit.

    These are the bolts holding the crossrail on a very old planer. Holes for 4, missing two. Originals on top, new bolt below. Made the...

    I think it was hot-rodded, the overhead bolted to the columns with a motor. The legs are pinned to the floor or it will walk.
