    "...but certainly don't do anything for atmospheric ingress."

    That's only a consideration for in-line splices. Even the one sided splices can be simply be approached from the side of the tool.

    Expensive hobby, even if you only have enough track to support the wheels without ever moving it an inch.

    If you are talking about grounding like in a house or building where there is an actual ground rod, no it is not a ground.

    Not the best by any means, but you can spend $200, $400, and more. I have used these Vaco crimpers for many years, for both professional and personal work and have never had a bad crimp. And the...

    I recall watching my grandfather slaughter chickens for Sunday dinner, but I guess he held on to them because they never ran anywhere.

    I had no interest in learning that skill from him.

    The unanswered questions here are: Why do the internal bores taper when external turning does not? And What is changing to make it so?

    I think you may be confusing the percentage of a full thread with the class of fit. The class of the fit will be determined by the die and tap or by your cutting depth if you single point them.

    Michiganbuck,

    I guess I qualify for being an old fart too. Drop by some day and we will share some coffee and swap lies. Let me know ahead of time and I will pick up some donuts too.

    That looks like what is commonly called a 7 x 12 mini lathe. It is made in China. It is a low quality machine. That means it will fight you.

    This pretty much makes the question of the mating thread binding moot. All that is left is how can he do this.

    He has three choices. The first is to reject the job - the "no bid" option. It may...
