    Don't know. I'm too cheap to have anything but steel blocks. I will say that high-chromium steels (depends on alloy) tarnish, even if they do not redly rust.

    Well excuuuuse me for not...

    Okay, so those sets are better than any of the gage block sets I have in my shop right now. A 111 piece set is not really that different from an 81 piece set, so don't count that toward "overkill". ...

    I bet the buyer (presumably the port) specified which direction the cranes would be oriented on board, with an eye on which dock the ship would eventually offload at. Logistics for big things are...

    Extremely close. They make silicone non-stick liners for baking sheets. An industry standard "half-sheet" is 13x18, while a "full-sheet" is 18x26. The liners are usually about 1/16" thick and...

    In my (limited) experience, extruded vinyl isn't very abrasion-resistant and definitely not heat-resistant. I'd expect hot chips to melt into the surface. If you're running flood coolant, "hot"...

    I like a variation on jwearing's idea. Put the ball in a cup with a flat bottom. Shape of the cup is not too critical, three points of contact for the ball would be ideal. Using a surface gage,...

    ScotchBrite pad and some oil (doesn't matter what kind). Wipe it clean when done scrubbing.

    If you fail to find a replacement Dufour part, there is still some hope. If you very carefully measure the dimensions that the gear set must mount (bores, ODs, axis centerline offsets, etc) and work...

    Now that is something you don't often see. Thanks for posting the photo.

    Any idea how much of that was done by the owner? I'm assuming the ornamental clamshell base is part of the casting, but...

    Jesus, donie, will you give it a rest. Thermite is bad enough, are you planning to join him?

    Probably for cutters with Weldon shanks. Many of the larger Weldon shanks have two flats (or two sets of flats) at 90 degrees.

    Heh, I spent 71-76 in northern Indiana, where we could only get three radio stations (not exaggerating terribly much). WLS and WGN clear channel stations out of Chicago and Detroit, and WOWO out of...

    I have a similar large square from Busch. Heavy aluminum cast frame with iron faces bonded on. I've been satisfied with it. Not too concerned about the thing being a pair of bimetal elements,...

    To spam/shill, of course. Unless it's part of an SEO scam. I hear there's value to having "legitimate" links when you are trying to get your crap site on the 1st page of Google's search results.

    I've got a 16x40, slightly heavier, with similar lifting holes, and 1.25" bar was amply strong. Doubt it was anything more than 1018 (the riggers used their own).

    For my Nichols rack feed, I scored an 18" diameter valve wheel. I never lack for a good grip. :-)

    Thanks, Larry. I had the impression the B&S shed a lot of stuff when the Hexagon takeover took place.

    Are you talking about thin parallels, like about 1/8" thick (maybe 1/4"). Or parallels you might use directly on
    a machine's T-slotted table, with cross-sectional dimensions more like 1/2"x3/4" or...
