    Rob- pretty sure that's the stuff, but I will confirm tomorrow. Also a friend with a hydraulic shop swears by Oil Eater and you can buy it pretty much anywhere. I think he gets it at Costco or...

    Most compressor oil has rust and oxidation (R&O) inhibitors added but other than that, I don't think its much different than regular hydraulic oil.

    Go back and read what 4GSR said- grinding the top of a cutoff blade is not a good thing unless you really understand what the potential issues can be. Unless your top grind extends back the full...

    Wow!! .002 to .003 per pass seems like a lot to me. I know my wheel would burn at that rate unless my traverse was REALLY slow.

    I'v found that a pretty good general purpose wheel is a Norton 32A46K5VBE. I use that on soft mild steel, carburized 62 Rc etc, and it performs pretty well both plunge and cylindrical grinding. ...

    What Garwood said, or a missing ready signal from the missing chip conveyor. Check the fuses on the power supply as well. If my mill has a tool changer error I get a start rejected message as well.

    Just a heads up to others here in Ca. Tractor Supply has a cleaning solvent they say is for use in "wash tanks". Come in 5 gal pails and works pretty much the same as good old Stoddard solvent. ...
