    You can find anodize companies that specialize in large parts through Google, but don't bother - you've answered your question in the last line. It'll be much more than a few hundred for a job that...

    At $3K-plus I hope they come with a lifetime supply of wipes. And Amazon buyers (admittedly not the last word on audio reviews) don't have universally good things to say: Amazon.com: STAX SR-009...

    And for those "some", this will be of further interest: YouTube

    Welp, these two tags worked for me. Browser issue on your end? Firefox 71.0 here...

    Probably just a case-hardened low alloy steel, nothing fancy but the HT. Would also explain the poor threads, distorted from the HT and maybe buildup of casing. Dovetail would be finish ground...

    I'd try sandblasting, using lower air pressure and finer grit to start. Use a fan to blow debris away, and good lights to allow you to track removal and not cut into the fiberglass too much.

    If...

    I'd agree with you, except that it seems to hit an "exact" spot each time it flakes, which to me points to damage to the scale at that section such that the reader gets confused. But it can't hurt...

    Imagine tapping a thread at an angle into a casting - you'd need some extra cutting threads to ensure full "access" to the mating part. Yes, some other interference is to be expected with most...

    To test your theory, I took a can of Mothers, chucked into the lathe, and tried to create the geometry requested. All I wound up with is a gooey mess of abrasive slop all over the lathe, which I...

    Eh, for a small extra cost we can deposit gold instead. Very popular with the rappers and blingsters who are also into IR spectrum astrophysics.

    From what I can understand so far, I'd suggest this be an assembly of ground glass disks, with each thickness being it's own diameter with angled aperture, polished and with an aluminum or silver...

    I'll go with a landing gear fixture too, that was my guess before reading #3. As to worth, whatever you can get from the scrappy. Or use it as the central pillar for a coffee table.

    BTW, best use...

    From what I can remember on my '97 VF-2, getting the rubber strips to fit correctly in the slots is a pain. Take your time to make sure you get them fully inserted, we had to remove the covers and...

    The brother of the UPS driver thinks it was police bullets that killed him. Given the massive number of shots they fired when surrounded by civilians, I won't be surprised if he and the other...

    Stainless will have corrosion advantages (duh), especially if the welds are passivated. It should also be "smoother" (unless pipe is used), better for swinging grips (rougher would be better for...

    Or make up a "C" fixture that has a tail that slips behind the part (in between the chuck jaws), then has a cylinder or screw to press the bushing in. Think long, short-jawed C clamp with bushing...

    I would suggest that you have a proper spindle rebuilder do the work. Yes, it's more expensive but you'll save going through the effort/time/cost of DIY only to have a proper shop redo it when you...

    No, there are times you have to do this. As I said in #6, I had to deal with other groups that were concerned about vibrations interfering with their work. So, whether "needed" or not, we went...

    Does seem an odd failure for an aluminum cut. You do have a long trough, and if the coolant isn't enough to clean out the chips you may be recutting them, which even with Al is not a good thing for...
