    It was usually $.10(cad), which is still hardly worth it but maybe I was lucky to get that then. Last time I took some AL in it was down too but that's a couple months ago now.

    So, when the whole caps failure and meltdown thing happened, do you know if any of your neighbors also experienced any damage related to it, or it pretty much all stayed within your loop?

    Got a whole $0.05/lb(.035USD/lb) for 17-4 turnings today.
    Apparently scrap prices usually go down this time of year due to holidays and mills shutting down/maintenance, so I'll check a few more...

    Changed it this morning, its a bit hard to get the little clip to release. Turns out the original which was in there about 20months was still at 3.5V.
    Anyhow, I put the turret on T1, put the new...

    I like cutting my own to the size I need, straighter cuts, less waste usually too. I also like hearing the saw run in the background while I do other work.

    Companies being extra generous to their employees with bonuses 3rd year in a row, its almost as if the tax cuts are being appreciated and shared, booming economy doesn't hurt either eh.

    Watch this here, starting around 12 min to the end, checking the torx with the load sensing is kinda cool, and 3X speeder for milling.

    I think I'll order a couple volt meters(maybe analog eh?) of some sort to hard wire in my PP's 1ph side so I can take a look at the reading every day when turning on/off just as extra precaution....

    I saw on the American rotary website they got options now for joining a few RPC's together, its interesting.
    Their outdoor unit looks decent too, keep the heat and noise out.

    Anyone got more...

    I finally found a couple videos of the AR ADX models running, the rpc I had definitely didn't sounds like that.
    I guess I'll have to keep that option in mind.

    It could be worth checking with MTE or some other builder of transformer and harmonic filter equipment. I think more details from PP, proper scoping of the actual harmonics range happening and force...

    I'd pay $50k right now if I could get real 3ph from the pole, plain fact is they won't, so I can't.
    If I want it, I'm the one that has to move to it.

    I'm not sure about the yellow one, but the other 2 are probably the BR-2/3AGCT4A batteries. Other could be too, but there's a few types anyway. If you lift the little holder/cover a bit it'll lift...

    My 10hp blue unit is well over 30,000hrs of daily use by now, if not 40,000, never 1 problem, and way, way, way better than the RPC it replaced. I changed the filter caps in it last year, which was a...

    My new lathe has one of those 4D cell thing, although nice vs the br-ccf2th and such. I find it so stupid they put the D cells on their side facing the front cover so they lose contact when you open...

    Does sounds like a possible gripping and process problem. Could probably use better tooling that lasts longer too, maybe some sort of ceramics.
