    He was using them on Mythbusters episodes quite frequently - that started in what, 2003? And he was a modelmaker for quite some time before that...

    And don't get me wrong, I like Adam for the most...

    What are you, joking? Adam has been using lathes for decades at least. Far from his first time.

    Yep, amateur hour for sure. Should have had a stop behind the bolt head and the tailstock center in. Noticed he started using the center after ripping it out of the chuck twice...but he didn't...

    How much did they ding you? I have a few plates and need to get mine done before long.

    And wow, talk about all the wear being in one spot! You can definitely see where that plate was used the most.

    Pretty sure the relief valve in this instance is the pressure regulator. On my grinder it is the same. One relief valve for the high pressure side of the system and one for the low side. Adjusting...

    I think you are totally correct. I've never had a tool rust from my hands until this summer when I brought a 90° air drill out of the shop to help a friend drill some holes in his trailer. It was...

    In the rules sticky there's discussion of some sellers needing a reality check... Not a flaw, just needs to happen sometimes. We covered this in another thread - this is a discussion forum, people...

    Yes it's definitely metal bond, not electroplated. It's a face grinding wheel. Thick layer, around ⅛" or a little more. Looks like maybe copper was used in the bond to my eye.
  9. Bob, speaking of dressing a metal bond wheel......

    Bob, speaking of dressing a metal bond wheel... I've got a pretty old one on a grinder used for touching up carbide tooling. It is a little out of true, has a slight bounce. How are these trued? I...

    I made a new pickup for my siphon blaster before I got a pressure pot. It made a night and day difference. Mine looks just like this one. 295588

    I would bring that back-up Milwaukee box in and keep your eyes peeled for a nice used box. I always have one eye out for good deals. Screaming deals on toolboxes show up every month or two. I just...

    I am in an unconditioned space right now also. I use camphor blocks smashed up and set in a little container with holes in some of my tool boxes, and am going to get a dehumidifier ASAP. I had one in...

    Great link Daniel, thanks. That was a good read. Interesting info regarding cushioning there. Noted that the check valves you're describing are only shown to be for air cylinders in that pdf.

    I disagree. Letting a guy know he's outside the realm of reality is more constructive criticism than anything you've described. I've had it happen, just the way the cookie crumbles. I'd rather be...

    It looks an awfully lot like the diagram to me. The black cap on the right side of the last photo needs to come off - the relief valve should be under it. I think that's the third step your talking...

    You might be able to add one somewhere else if it's easier to see - on my grinder there's a gauge port for both the high and low side pressures right up front on one of the valve blocks. If at the...

    Go ahead, that's usually pretty easy and quick. Does your machine have a pressure gauge? Watching the needle might give some indication of something awry also.

    I don't think anyone meant to call him a jerk at all. Saying a price is unrealistic doesn't mean the seller is a jerk, just uninformed or having expectations set a bit too high. I can understand...

    That part of the piston is about ¾" long. The maximum table speed is spec'd as 100Ft./minute, or ~30M/minute.

    Yes, 32 viscosity. Mine is using Vacuoline 1405. It's 8" × 18" travel.

    I'm not sure about the chances that the clearances could be off, the larger manufacturers usually had pretty good Q.C. - but...

    Nothing heartless about letting people know their prices are way outside the realm of possibility. Pricing like that usually means nobody even inquires about the item because even if a seller comes...
