    We have ER20 x 1" Ø toolholders with hollow shanks. What I need are the SLEEVES for the turret toolholders which are 1.5Ø bore.

    This is what we've made in the past, using hoses to connect the...
  2. Need source for oolant-thru ER collet shanks and sleeves

    Two new Hyundai-Wia turning centers arriving Monday, both have the higher-pressure coolant option for 5 x D drilling. I have lined up the drills needed, and plan to hold them in sealed ER collets, in...

    Right on. I was gonna say a hundred years but you beat me to it. And 500 years still isn't hyperbole.

    That is the answer right there. Why waste time theorizing about the designer's intent or competence when you can find out over the phone?

    146 posts of the usual political flamethrowing under the pretext of "Manufacturing in America and Europe." While I happen to agree with pretty much everything Trump has done—as opposed to what he...

    Page 75 of the April 2012 edition of the Haas CNC Mill Operator's Manual: "Take tool 1 in hand and insert the tool (pull stud first) into the spindle."

    Certainly the same principle has been used by bookkeepers and accounting (and bank) clerks, who divert rounding errors to a private account. The same thing can happen with computer-program-driven...

    We got our WATS line about 30 years ago, right around the time the 800 numbers were almost used up, so the letter/spelling combination we wanted could only be had with the new 888 area code....

    The above is truth without the slightest hyperbole. Occupy-Wall-Streeters camping (and shitting) on the sidewalk and rioting Bernie supporters get practically fawning CNN coverage, but compared to...

    Once on the DC Beltway in the early 70s I passed another welding truck, also with a big Perkins-Diesel-powered Miller on it—but his had had the Miller logo decal carefully removed and replaced with a...

    Boy, did that exactly cover why I sold the big P&H. It had the adjustable waveform option (big handle like some kind of clutch on a locomotive or tugboat) and you could do some nice work with it—but...

    Just my 2¢ but the reason anybody is "semi-retired" is because he is already tired of working. Those guys stick around only if the shop environment is better than what they're used to. And climate...

    WOW. Wish we had political reporters like that. Ours would use the phrase "commitment to empire and hegemonism" or some such.

    I'm just an observer, but that suggests the UK might have a reputation for stability, a safe haven. At least compared to the EU countries on the continent, whose history since Bismarck has involved...

    That's the spline used on most splined steering wheel quick-release hubs. Except for ours. I think we still have the 16/32 spline hob but tossed the broach years ago. Call any manufacturer of those...

    You nailed it. I haven't opened the handbook drawer in my box for a very long time. If I need something like the dimensions of a 5C collet, or AN/JIC O-ring bosses I have Google. Back in the day the...

    With respect, I did not get from Mr Hanson's article that he admires empire as a concept; quite the contrary. We, after all, were the first rebels against British colonialism. But, we were blessed by...
