    That cone thing covers about 325 different O-ring sizes. Then you have materials and durometer.

    My O-ring kit is a seal supply house. It is about 100,000 square feet and 40 feet tall.

    I have...

    I don't get it either. I think an occasional youtube link is fine, but makes no sense when every post has a link to a video. Especially a 45 minute minute video.

    I make videos for my business.

    I bought all mine when a local school district bought some industrial buildings to convert into classrooms. I think mine is Square D 600V 250 amp copper. I got 100 feet of busway, starter box and 30...

    I was the mechanic at a good size golf coarse from 16 until I graduated high school. I could have all the electric carts with bad batteries I wanted for the taking and I took a few. I put a Road bike...

    Why does it take so long?

    I do several families of parts with 3/8" and 1/2" radius outside corners in 6061 and buzz right through most toolpaths in one pass and done. Some inside corners will grab...

    That is one heck of a sobering video. I just ate lunch and it almost came up watching that guy beat into stew meat.

    All is not lost though, I'm going to cut the enclosure down to be 6" thick, put it on some small casters and mount a little Walmart heater inside it for my shop...

    A36 can have a real shiny finish if it's run fast enough. I don't know how you'd do that with a tiny tool though.

    I made a bunch of torque converter shells from 13" 1018 and I'd take a .01" finish...

    Use it. Total waste of time.

    You're going to feel real stupid when the pump shits the bed and you put 50 hours into making it look pretty.

    Still have all 12 of the BG's to sell. This is probably not the ideal venue for them. Time to pack, ship, deal with logistics for the bigger motors is higher concern for me than getting the most out...

    Don't under estimate the time and expensive tooling it can entail to get what is essentially two lathes and a mill in one package working like you want.

    I've known a few guys who have tried to setup a sub spindle live tooled lathe at home for products or side income and never run a single part.

    VMC's are probably the most versatile machine you...

    From my testing they will handle anything a 2.5 KW series wound 12V DC winch motor can throw at them. 2000-6000 RPM range.

    No clutch in that size range is as cost effective since nothing else is...

    I can relate to your situation.

    I find I can run several low HP mills and lathes making many more parts than if I run a single larger machine. Can't run any of the 20+ HP machines and another...

    A cheap $12 weed sprayer works great to apply diesel fuel. Let it soak a few then re-spray and scrub. Toilet and car detail brushes work good for cleaning painted surfaces.
