    dudewithaface, where in Utah are you? Utah in general is something of a 'machinery desert' and prices often reflect the lack of availability.

    With regard to color temp, I use 4500K which is perfect for me. I can tolerate 5000K if I have to, but NOT 6000K+. If you paint, get something with a good CRI (90+). Most of the 6000K LED cheapos...

    I use 24 T5HO (4') tubes. Now that LED replacements are available for T5HO, that's what I'll do when they need replacement. The T5's, at 54W each, use a lot of power.

    Could be, but 'DOM' and 'bushing housings for leaf spring shackles' make me think round.

    Hello, Johnny. If you're just trying to adjust the length, a lathe would be 1st choice if you have one. Holding a round piece vertically in a vise requires at least one V-block, otherwise it's sure...

    Maybe two: The pro has to make tolerance on time, the hobby guy can go slow or do over until its 'perfect'.

    Don't bother editing this thread. Your title will get it locked soon enough. Start over, use a meaningful title and figure out the picture posting. I'd guess you'll get an answer within minutes after...

    Well, dang! If you'd have been a little patient you'd have top quality tooling for 'considerably less expense'.

    Not sure what you mean here, but an aircraft expends a lot of energy in 'keeping itself ice free in flight'. Propeller blades spinning fast enough will shed larger chunks of ice but what remains...

    I like to be prepared as well. I get the sarcasm, but if your turbines work well in severe icing conditions its because they are equipped with de-icing/anti-icing technology. While not in the wind...

    kb0thn, wind turbines DON'T work when they're iced up, and if your infrastructure is so reliable why do you have all that backup power?

    Congratulations. It was a bear and you won!
    Thanks for letting us know what worked, and how it turned out.

    To the OP: Now that I see what's going on, you may well never get that out by unscrewing. I had the same problem with a die holder squeezed wrong in a 100 ton press. Even welding a nut, etc won't...

    I, too am not clear on the twisting allen wrench comment. The socket shown is in great shape (is that the stuck one, or a 'good' one?). What you need is a stub allen key mounted in a square-drive...

    Naturally, if it is a stamped pulley or one with an especially thin web then a hub is a structural requirement if it is to be mounted to a cylindrical shaft. If it is made from a solid slug with...

    Mine is a Ben Fleming 'pulse' circuit design. I made a number of mods for my own purposes and the mechanicals are also custom but quite simple. Per Ben's design I used a simple servomotor, no stepper...

    I agree, Bill. With no separation it seems to me the ss shroud would pretty much negate the effect of the twisted area, especially if it is mashed firmly! At the very least, wouldn't it have the...

    That depends on the unit. If it will accept hollow electrodes with thru-flush you can go very deep. I'm only familiar with a home-made unit that doubles as a rudimentary sinker EDM, but I suspect...

    Most of the suggestions above aren't likely to work with an M-2 screw. Some might. One almost always will: the tap burner. Anything with 'medical' attached to it is going to be worth the cost of one....
