    Since the OP's problem was over 9 years ago he's either given up or taken up knitting. Why dredge up a thread from that long ago? All it does is become a pita when others realize it no longer matters.

    Fwiw and misnamed or not the Mit. solar powered are what Mit, themselves call them. And they sure as hell don't need direct sunlight to power them up. The normal amount of shop lighting has always...

    Why are people crying over crappy keyed chucks EG? Because there's damned good reason to not and never use something like an Albrecht in very high torque conditions. Hole saws, larger taps, S&D type...

    That was probably a B&S 558 cylinder square. Not made anymore but very handy if you can find one in decent shape on Ebay etc. It took me over a year to find one in the condition and price I was...

    With what I have tied up in machines and tooling over the last 40 plus years that are hardly ever used for actual gunsmithing and never on any gun I don't already own. You'd have to have a hell of a...

    You don't necessarily need an actual cross and/or top slide for taper cuts, but it depends of course on what your attempting to do and the accuracy required. It's not uncommon to use what are known...

    Newtons third law, "For every action there's an equal and opposite reaction". For machine tools you'd subtract that reaction from the machines own mass, rigidity and resistance to those forces. Once...
