    IMO, any "inventor" who doesn't take a vested interest in how his thing gets off the ground isn't serious. Not saying they need to be a full on machinist or engineer, but they do need to have enough...

    I don't know about how they're wording it, but it sounds like a "piece-work" shop. Employee's are not paid by the hour, but by how many pieces they can get done correctly in a day. They're not...

    My experience has been that it holds up well to corrosion, but rubs off easier than hot-dip, so it's better on static parts than mechanical.

    I'd also add it's a problem that people think "success" is when you don't have to work. The family owned companies that so many see as gold standard for corps and companies are often successful at...

    Watching guys like Adam do lathe work, I have to remind myself that he very obviously got into the skill backwards, as many have. What I mean is that instead of saying, "lets learn how machinists do...

    Looks like there might be a small home made one there, but the cast tail-stock is to large to be anything in the milk crate AFAIK. He might be talking about a small 3 jaw chuck? I think that the...

    Here are a couple threads I started a little while back along the same lines (calibrating without a known flat surface). My last hold up was to get a piano wire test done on the un-calibrated...

    WTS: 1/16" Davis Keyseater Broach

    1/16" wide keyway broach for a Davis Keyseater (name and size are stamped on the edge). It doesn't appear to have any chipped or broken teeth and feels sharp to the touch.
