    Check this one out. Last I heard they were made in Canada. High-def at over 1,000fps and depending on features, around $3500

    Just a suggestion, Bill. Your mill & other questions will get more responses if you start a new thread with a relevant title. I suspect a lot of members skipped over this one because the title is...

    Hi Bill. I'd put it together with a liberal smear of something like the Lubriplate LTR-2, red tacky grease. It stays put and works well for this type of application. In the end I doubt it matters...

    This picture looks exactly like the Noga units I use. They are very good and I use them for parting, turning and milling. I don't do mist, instead I set them to 'sputter' a fairly coarse droplet...

    It will run like any other 3ph motor providing your RPC is up to the start-up current required by the compressor motor. If its marginal at all and the compressor starts while the Fadal is running,...

    I just go twice or three times around with moderate force. Its pretty easy to tell when movement stops, and when they all hit that point they're done.

    When I say 'moderate force' consider that my...

    Dressing a wheel requires removal of abrasives and binders. You could go to a CBN or plated diamond, but you'll have to pay the price. You could also rig a shop-vac to capture most of the dust.

    That's pretty much how mine works. The sand hopper is pressurized and Tee-d into the main line via an adjustable valve. I open the nozzle valve and adjust the sand valve to whatever I need. I do shut...

    For reliability and consistency I think pressure fed is the only way to go. Other than that, sounds like you already have a great system for what you do.

    Your asking for 'brand only' is a mistake. The old Acu-Rites aren't the same as, say a new 300S Acu-Rite by Heidenhain.

    It amuses me that some people think the opinions of the membership here have any effect at all on the owner. 'Voting' to close a forum? This isn't a democracy.

    All I've done pull out from the front. Some have a plug in the tail end through which you can insert a rod to tap out the point. If it doesn't have access from the back, the hard part is getting a...

    Do you have a microscope? Seems since your old punches work fine, a very close comparison old vs new might be informative. If they're all made to the same spec, try using an old punch or die with the...

    I think brass would be just fine, occasional or regular use. If you cut tapers in the plate and use a matching tapered pin, the wear will be minimal and for the most part self-compensating. In this...

    Right on, Bill! I have both, and often grind HSS for O-ring grooves, snap-rings etc. Yes, I could grind carbide too but parting inserts are pricey.

    Yeah, he's a legend in his own mind. I think he chimes in everywhere because he takes some perverse pride in an exorbitant post-count. Thing is, most of his posts don't count! Maybe one in a...

    That depends on where you are, I guess. I've never had a problem. It's more likely you can't buy refrigerant without a license. Most units these days come pre-charged with enough refrigerant to...

    If you've already got a central system in place, I'd keep that and just upgrade the air handler and condenser. The efficiency ratings are SEER, I think it stands for 'Seasonal Energy Efficiency...
