    I am very slowly going through a similar exercise on a VN #28A. I chose the column face as the initial and key surface. I convinced myself that VN ram motion is a non-precision motion, and that I...

    I am going to say "no", but you need to understand that there are about 15-20 different types of high speed steel, M2, M4, M42, T1 and T15 being probably the most common, and they don't all have...

    Not breaking teeth, by not climbing on top of the material in excess of the teeths' ability to cut.

    That's been my experience, but the commercial hook you showed is probably doable in 12L14.

    I would not hesitate to die-cut 8-26 in 1018 on a DSM. I use 1018 at least as often as 12L14 on that...

    I am with the Sharpie crowd whenever practical. For anything less than 10 square inches, I don't even bother looking for the cans of Dykem, and for anything 10-25 square inches there's a pretty high...

    I've used annular cutters to "enlarge" electrical knockouts on heavy sheet to a larger size. The existing hole was much too large to pilot on directly, and I wanted the new hole to be tangent to,...

    Bridge, car or construction reamers. Can easily take off 1/8" on diameter, more if you've got a good rigid drilling setup (which is not how they are normally used).

    Pretty sure I bought a whole raft of 7/8", 1" and 1-1/4" spacers and running bearings from either Travers or KBC Tools about 8 years ago. You might give those folks a call and see if they can source...

    To get back to the original topic on this thread, I, for one, DO NOT want the PM forums search function removed. I used it at least weekly, and successfully. I only ever "Search One Content Type",...

    Very roughly, there were two basic sizes for most of the Van Norman attachments. The 12/16 machines would take one size and the 22/24/26/28 machines (and their 3X counterparts) would take the larger...

    digger doug is one of the Forum Police. He's not asking for a specific price quote; he's trying to establish rules of engagement.

    For myself, I think assistance dealing with Ingersoll's huge...

    Question for those who are familiar with ship construction. In that Bloomberg article that Dale linked, there's a good shot of a bridge that's been sectioned. Looks like a 1/4" or 3/8" metal deck...

    Dowels with internal threads for removal from blind holes by pulling are a stock item. So in a pinch, you could use one of those together with the securing set screw.

    Hi Rebecca, sorry to hear of your loss and delighted to hear of your efforts to get US Products rolling again.

    Bill D, PVC doesn't seem like an appropriate material for this purpose. Among other things, I would expect it to creep, quickly releasing the locking force.

    He didn't say, but the work may be overhanging the outside T-slots, preventing the use of two step clamps using those T-slots. Or it might be on a really old miller whose table only has ONE T-slot....

    shiapeng123, your company doesn't even have a US sales office. Why are you listing your location as "New Mexico"?

    He's asking a fairly high price, but not ridiculously high, for that lot. First, if you have the Hardinge HC with threading attachment that these work with, you probably have already most of the...

    Chris Attebery, in that last photo, if you happen to know, was that two T-lathes facing each other, or a synchronized faceplate and "tailplate" on one lathe?

    Forrest, judging from the customer reviews at that Amazon link, Speedball has dropped the ball on that particular item. Looks like new ones are not nearly to the same standard as your older ones.

    Not for an AC motor, and not for DC motors without permanent magnets.

    If the 220V test won't work out, try taking the motor in to a local motor repair/rebuild shop and ask them to take a look.
