    White = no abrasive?

    That's not completely true. I have white pads which have a fine abrasive.

    OBSERVATION:

    You hard working guys who do not have the time to waste on talking about hobby grade machines have spent time on 163 posts talking about how to handle them.

    You DO know that you...

    That is really neat. My hat's off to the guy who set it up.

    What really amazes me is that the fins stay straight. I would have thought that they would come off curved, like most chips that we...

    This will probably work for the 8' fixtures with single pins on each end of the bulbs.

    BUT, while I was rewiring the 4' fixtures in my house and shop I had an electrician do about half of the...

    Epoxy floor? I wish it were. It's just gray floor paint from Lowe's or Home Depot. I applied it a few years ago, after an acid wash but it is peeling off in some heavy use spots, like where my stool...

    I have an AC unit with a heating coil. It keeps my attached garage/shop comfortable in the winter here. But I am in south Texas, not north Canada.

    I would call a local HVAC company or two and get...

    Accuracy tricks?

    The biggest trick I can think of would be to do both the taper and the thread in ONE set up. That would probably have been on the lathe, but it could also have been done on the...

    I worked for a company which had a TV studio right next to the room where the heating equipment was located. The boilers were LOUD and the pumps were also. They had a professional acoustic consultant...

    Your shop sounds similar in size to mine, perhaps a bit larger. I had six, four foot, two tube fluorescent fixtures and real poor light plus constant problems with the tubes and ballasts. The...

    Hundreds of pieces at a time? I would look into a CNC mill and make jigs to hold each sized coin. Those jigs may be as easy as some extra thick jaws for a milling vise and just cutting a coin shaped...

    Are you sure that the city or some other political entity does not offer trash pick up? I had two trees taken down in my front yard. The tree company probably notified the city's trash pickup. They...

    On a concrete floor, weather you bolt it DOWN or not, I would strongly recommend that it be fixed in ONE and ONLY ONE place on the floor. Concrete is leveled by hand when it is poured and it is not...

    I know the OP is talking about his milling vise, but I see no reason why my solution for my bench vise can not also apply there, at least in some situations.

    Also, there is no real reason why a...

    Yes, just spacers used for set-ups. I have some lengths of flat ground stock that I use in a similar manner. I bought several lengths of it and cut them up into various lengths. Since I wanted four...

    My shop made tool post is not hardened. There is no problem with rotation, even with heavy cuts. Perhaps hardened tool posts are the problem.

    Here is a link to that video:

    YouTube

    It is a great video about a great mount. He has a very good understanding of what is going on when a tool post is mounted.

    Well, I certainly hope it is a casting. And he does state that.

    What is noticeably missing here are any tolerances on the various surfaces themselves and in the dimensions between them. For all...

    I also have a couple of sets of Xcelite in inch sizes: bought them too long ago to remember, probably 70s. They have lasted well, no breakage or damage. No problems with them. The set of small ones...

    First, a CNC forum may be a better place to ask.

    Or one of the amateur machining forums because the pros will be buying the needed machines, not making them.

    Either of these places should...

    Water based coolant!

    If you want to eliminate it, just use coolants that don't have water in them. Or, take the vise off at the end of each day's work and clean the table with an oily rag.
