    I'd be suspicious that that device has caught some kind of malware.

    One should be able to ask for a password reset by calling Facebook directly.

    For things like Facebook passwords, the threat...

    I think I had one of those - a Kurt Clone for $90 new. It was very crudely made, especially where it most mattered, the slant and ball mechanism that makes a Kurt a Kurt (until the patent expired).....

    New to you lathe, but at 1700 pounds, ought to be able to thread.

    I had similar problems with a new old lathe ten years ago, and it turned out that the spindle preload was slack, allowing the...

    Aside from the social dangers of hiring relatives or friends, it does not sound like this fellow would long survive operating any machine tool.

    In the late 1970s, when I lived in Baltimore, a...

    Weller still sells parts, or at least they did the last time I needed something. Owned by Cooper now.

    Yeah, mine came with key and cross-pin, but still screwed up. I basically had to re-install the power feed.



    I had to shim as well. I made brass shim washers to exact thickness on a lathe, so...

    Ahh. I have one of those, and it's now set up as a free-floating feather key, so the key cannot slither out and onto the floor unless the brass drive gear is first slid off. The adapter associated...

    Is there a key in there, between the brass gear and the shaft? That key is supposed to carry the torque, not the black ring knob.

    Depends on the torque levels and the maximum temperature. That said, stud-locking locktite is pretty strong.




    Ditto. I think a drawing or two is in order.

    There are a number of...

    No, I don't. But many things that benefit from a tight fit are supplied slightly oversize, so the user can perform the final fitting.

    Hmm. Use loctite to fix hex nut to threaded part of shaft? The hex nut fits into a hex recess in the skateboard wheel.

    Gently enlarge the hole in the wheel with fine wet-dry sandpaper (used wet) on a slightly smaller wooden dowel till it just fits.

    Make a hardwood fixture that goes in a drill-press vice to hold nut and shaft in position, with a flat side of the nut face up, and close to horizontal. You will need sacrificial wood below to avoid...

    I don't visualize your system in any detail, but here are some thoughts:

    As others have said, don't use a threaded shaft as a bearing surface.

    It sounds like the rollers are fixed to the...

    As suggested in a parallel thread, it looks like it was dropped face-down onto a concrete floor. The cracks go the wrong way for the usual crashes.

    Ten+ years ago I acquired a Clausing 5914 that had been badly neglected. It was unable to cut a 0.0625" wide groove in a bit of mild steel without bucking and breaking the grooving bit. The present...

    A tube polished on the inside will trap and guide light in the same manner as a step-index optical fiber. If you launch a laser pointer beam into the tube at a small angle, and look at the pattern...

    I have just this same machine, but not set up for woodworking.

    That "draw bar" is the quill's drive spline shaft, which is hollow. The draw bar is within.

    Machine oil is not intended as an electrical insulator. That's a far different kind of oil. The additives are different.

    Use an immersion heater, as many have suggested.
