    I remember the old time dining cars from trips probably in the 50s. On the NP to Seattle as I recall, but I cannot be sure. Tablecloths, china, the whole nine yards. Or you could sit at a counter,...

    Yes, it appears to be a regular die and a reverse to unscrew it. If you look closely, right after the die holder pulls out, the slide reverses motion, and you can see the die holder pull out farther...

    One added idea for new graduates.... Take the EIT, or whatever they call it now. That will allow you to later get your PE just by recommendation of a few other PEs. That is something that can end...

    That was the point.

    Induced currents is a different matter. Normally a Faraday cage is needed to block those effects.

    The tall conductive thing is simply to avoid direct strikes on things...

    All sorts of things can cause low torque with a VFD...

    First thing is a bad setting of max amps. It seems, but is not clear, that this is not the likely cause.

    However, many VFDs can be set...

    First take a look at the box for the cubic capacity, then check the volume per wire. You have no strap-mounted devices, so that is not an issue.

    it is 2.25 cubic inches per wire for 12 ga, I...

    Along with that "protected zone".... The rule I have been given is to go from the top of the tallest conductive item, down at an angle. Some say 30 deg from horizontal, some say 45 deg, and a few...

    You need to find out what is being contemplated there. 8k might be reasonable, depending on the house.... 2k SF can be done several ways. Some have more needs-to-be-protected area than others.

    Assuming it is a gas truck, not diesel.......

    Gas sitting in the truck for 2 years is bad. It probably does not (as mentioned) even smell like gas. It will barely burn. That's enough problem...

    Maker likely expected the load motor would have its own contactor in the machine, which accounts for no output contactor. That is pretty much how it would be if the machine/motor were wired to a 3...

    Yeah, that was another item on the list. It just keeps going... there is way more missing than is left. Makes a person wonder about all the hidden things that do not show in the photos.

    Not an issue... the seller is the clueless (or greedy) person in this.

    Those 1020s seem like a very nice machine comparable to a 10EE.... Much more generally useful than the 608, which is a...

    There is so little left of it that it is really a parts machine in many ways. The entire change gear setup is missing, the tool holder is totally wrong. The headstock appears to be set up for...

    While this is probably good advice, not knowing details, the braking is not more violent than acceleration, I have tested similar sized machines and was unable to get a 6" or a 5: chuck to...

    I have a few, I get 'em for a couple bucks at estate sales. Dirty ones go for cheap. Nice shiny ones cost money. All of them work the same, and there are rags and water everywhere.....

    If all you have is a 4 way transformer, going in with 115 on the 480 winding, coming out the 240 and leaving that for 30 min or so, then 115 into 240:240 winding, leaving that for 30 min or so, then...

    1", eh? That's more than I have. As far as I know that (my) machine has a 10" saddle etc, but they are so close that they probably interchange. I have a t-slot crosslide from an 11", and it fits...

    It may not turn on. When testing those, I have always used a "4 way" transformer, 120/240 to 240/480. other than that, no damage from a basic test of turn on and run. Some can refuse to work if...

    What's your distance from compound to spindle center? Some may be larger, my 200 is smaller than most in that dimension.

    That thing really does look very well made and is quite "pretty". Seems too small for practical use, might it be some sort of sample piece or the like?

    Maybe not so fast....

    The 200 is really too small for the toolposts. Yes a 10" is big enough, but the distance from compound to spindle center is tiny, like 0.875". iI's marginal on clearance...

    it was pretty expensive at one time for balloons and Zeppelins, when it was a product of zinc and acid.... So, in essence, probably yes.

    The real intent is to make "cars" rare and very expensive....
