    Something in our culture has changed. As has been said many times, when I was in high school, we had a rifle club and on match days I walked in with an uncased rifle and put it in my locker. No one...

    Ignitron Shipping

    I have four new GL5551 ignitrons for sale. They contain substantial amounts of mercury so I need a shipper that will handle them.

    I had a unit that sort of did that for many years. It supplied a two speed Dahlander motor on a mill and had a current relay that added capacity when the current was high. When starting the motor on...

    Not a valid comparison. If a manufacturer supplied good food and someone deliberately poisoned it or caused botulinum to grow in it, the manufacturer would not be liable The lawyers might cook up...

    PaulM, if you like that sort of reading, get a book called "Hitler and I" by Otto Strasser. It says the same things about Hitler that everyone else says but it was written in 1939, when Hitler was at...

    A few years ago there were vises made that had the screw operating so that it pulled the jaws together rather than pushing them apart. I couldn't find them in a quick search.

    Not quite. The Kitty Genovese murder was in March 1964. Look up the Kitty Genovese effect or the bystander effect. About that time, 1963 or later, I don't remember the exact time, I was on Gaslight...

    The whole incident didn't take as long as it took to write about it. I pointed the gun at them and they jumped in their car and left. I didn't wave it at all. While I was helping the victim pick up...

    Now you know of one more. I was leaving the shop one night when I saw a mugging in progress. I went back in and got my 1911, ran down the block and chased the perps away. I didn't shoot anyone, for...

    Interestingly, my Bulgarian pal often commented that American politicians did what they were supposed to. For example, the highway 40/64 segment here was some of the earliest superslab in the Midwest...

    They also found that high school graduation had a noticeable positive effect, which they attributed to simply keeping boys off the streets during their peak criminal years at 18. They also found that...

    A US Army psychologist in a radio interview perhaps 25 years ago said the same thing. They used to teach shooting on bull's eye targets but found in the Korean war that soldiers trained that way did...

    Once they got into the business, they didn't have much choice. The last time Bonnie saw her family, she gave them instructions for her funeral.

    They lasted as long as they did because police...

    Actually, those who were there said Bonnie loaded while others did the shooting.

    Circa 1967 there was theory floated that back pains were a symptom of repressed rage. I can say that I worked for a "scientist" who was most of the time irrational. We were developing a blood...

    True, but offsetting the head a tiny amount, I mean really tiny, can make the cutter hit on 1/2 the rotation, eliminating crisscross machine marks and making a nicer looking finish.

    I was referring to the citizen soldiers. Most are gone now.

    I grew up among the citizen soldiers. They needed to do a job, did it and most went back to their civilian jobs. One neighbor didn't...

    I wonder if all these people wailing about firearms have ever heard of The Director of Civilian Marksmanship, now called the Civilian Marksmanship Program? The government is teaching people to shoot....

    I'm not sure what you mean. Lots of machinists, including some I know to be very good, have the same opinion of R8 collets that I have. I bought an English made Pal mill in 1969 when you would have...

    Looking at homicide rates of different cities, notice that New York and Los Angeles have some of the lowest on the list. Why aren't police forces in cities in high murder areas seeing what these...

    I don't think the designer of the R8 collet had a mind. A 3/4" four flute carbide end mill will pull down on a heavy cut, no matter how tight it is. Unless the shank is a perfect match to the collet...
