    Can you remove the collet? Interestingly Walter doesn't even show a collet chuck as an available accessory on their website. They've got a couple other accessories but no collet setup unless I'm...

    In my experience it's not uncommon to find tolerance spec'd tighter than necessary. Often this is done to avoid rejected parts - if the tolerance is tighter than necessary but the vendor misses by a...

    Is this going to be a production item or a one-off? Makes a difference to the info you will get. Probably would help to get a better idea of what this is going to look like mechanically as well.

    It can be done without a secondary but the primary will either need to be ground as a radius that falls away from the cutting edge (pretty much impossible for all practical purposes with one grinder...

    No need to spend a fortune for a special tool. I used a spring caliper with a test indicator mounted to a modified leg as an "over the bar" bore gage for ages. Works great and only costs a little...

    By my calculation you are correct.

    As regards your queries, for #1 I believe Forrest was saying to be sure that the big end of the center drilled hole was larger than the diameter that the ball...

    I would not try to do it vertical. Unless the scraped straight edge you are using for reference was also checked against it's own reference while in the vertical position it may not be flat/straight...

    Good stuff, will check that out. Haven't gotten any further so far than discovering that the motor appears by size to be at least 5 horse, can't see the data plate or it's missing. Machine needs some...

    If the original guys who made that setup were worth a damn, the fit will be undercut so it only hits in some smaller spots. One fit on either end and one fit in the middle of the shaft. If they...

    The chicom knock off may actually be a plus in this case. Spindle mount is larger than what I've seen spec'd for the Colchester (D1-6 on this machine, D1-4 on the Master 2500). Spindle bore is...

    Yes a shrink fit of this size can be pressed out, I've done it hundreds of times. In this particular instance though I think I will jump off that particular fence and side with the guys recommending...

    That is a shame. I didn't talk much to Carla but always enjoyed her postings. Same goes for a lot of folks on here.

    I'm assuming the ends are taken off while you're trying to press these shafts out, correct? So you can press directly against those gussets that are on the inside while the drum is assembled. You may...

    Yep, it's sitting in a friend's shop where it will be installed, not at my house, so I'll get some better pictures and get it apart soon. After loading, transporting and unloading the machines I...

    My statement wasn't fleshed out, but the gist was that since it was Chinese branded, didn't look like junk AND was found in the U.S. it probably wasn't made in mainland China. Most of the Chinese...

    Yeah obviously it's going to depend on the application. Common parlance for thin tubing such as copper plumbing tubing is swaging, swages etc. It sounded like the O.P. was referring to tubing of this...

    Agh. I got bit by a vertical once too, but on a small square piece of keystock. Would have been just fine - had just installed correct TPI blade and set the guides, etc. but for the fact that the...
