    For removing the moisture from the oil before sending it back through the system since the oil runs through the pump with the air in a scroll or screw type.

    If I don't get up and get dressed for work right away in the morning I am probably going to have an unproductive day, so I can understand that. I have caught myself being too relaxed about working...

    I suspect that the OP won't be upgrading his harbor freight bench grinder to a $15k cnc plasma coper anytime soon, but that is the process that came to my mind first. If you live in a big metro area...

    No kidding! I spent 10min looking that up once, and gave me a whole new respect for hydraulic safety. Sadly seems like the type of injury that 9 out of 10 people probably brush off as nothing to...

    Having internet forums and the like definitely helps a lot, but also not really a replacement for real social interactions to me.



    I have my two dogs with me all day too, and have certainly...
  6. How do you balance working alone all day? (for those who do)

    I imagine that like myself there are many other solo shops around the forum. I have day's where it is great to be alone with my thoughts and get into a good work flow without interruptions. There...

    Said many of the people who died last year in a construction accident, or more likely their bosses said it.



    Enough for 20 something people a year to die in the US, so clearly some things can...

    Where the heck are you working that has you running a 45' aerial boom with no training? Seek a better employer who will care if you die or worse kill someone else.

    Yes most boom lifts are...

    A $500 plane ticket is money well spent to prevent you from buying a $25k boat anchor.

    I think it depends on what it is and how much of an investment it will be for you. In my experience most...

    Have you anyway to confirm that it was working when purchased at the auction? If you bought it as-is at an auction there is a good chance it could have previous issues in the first place. It looks...

    If ever selling a product exclusively through one distributer I would make sure that there was a solid agreement on minimum product that they need to move to keep exclusivity. Easy for a large...

    x2 I always see them on there, and think the same as you as to it just being a sales ploy. Like a furniture store that has been "going out of business" for the last 10 years it just plants the idea...

    Even Ingersoll Rand does the same thing with some of their cheap stuff too. Run the same pump on a larger motor at a higher RPM to increase the output. There is no free lunch, it just puts more...

    I don't see what is funny? It is only barely more than a brand new one. A brand new one you never know what issues you might have, but this one is tried and true...surely they will guarantee that it...

    I would think that MSDS would need to be kept on hand from manufacturers even long after the end of production of a product. Sorry not much help, but maybe just need to get the right dept/person at...

    You are in a better part of the US than me for surplus machinery, and a press brake is not a cheap shipping item so finding locally helps. As someone who has been looking for a similar press brake...

    Do they work off of a simple ball valve on off? I am assuming that the pneumatic powered vac pump needs a constant flow of air to pull vacuum, or does it reach a holding point and lock up the...

    I have yet to completely disassemble the clamp. It appears as though it is a piece of plate with a through hole that engages the shaft to lock it in place. Possibly the hole has just become too...
