    "Owner is going to weld it, no idea what it goes on"

    If it's welded after the interference fit, there's not point in having an interference fit of any degree except for alignment, because welding...

    There is a Loctite retaining compound for interference fits. Don't use the usual stuff for slip fits or it'll grab before it's seated and it's game over. Put the Loctite on the flywheel and press the...

    Get you a large metal drum or plastic bucket that will cover the motor when cut in half. Cut in in half and leave enough to make hold down straps. Make some 1/2" or 3/4" holes in each end for...

    " You will probably have to try the silly things until you find a quiet one, and they are not all that common. I ought to make a plug-in solid-state replacement, but the market is tiny."

    Sorry to revive the proverbial dead horse, but I was searching for a problem I'm having with on my big Ampeg SVT and it (of course) led me here again. JST... what was the MIL 6C4 tube you found...

    I picked up a little one man bleeder at the auto parts store for like $3. A one way valve and a couple of lengths of clear plastic tubing. Break loose the bleeder fitting and tighten it back (so you...

    Only real downsides are very tight radius tip and the fact you can't bore to a flat bottom. If you can work with those, should be fine.

    Also, mighty handy to be able to slap something in the shaper and face it off or square it up when you have the mill set up for another operation. The way to learn to use a shaper is to just forego...

    Had the same experience with the 22L at the museum many moons ago. In the end, I just left it alone and used my VN2 tooling before I screwed up the spindle taper. I had been given two pieces of B&S...

    Quick way to select speed. 500rpm for .500" (1/2") drill (or spindle speed on a lathe) gives right at 70ft/min. Cut that in half for a carbon steel drill, so 250rpm to get 35ft/min. Spindle speed...

    When machining the groove, leave .010" clearance on the diameter. It is NOT a percentage of cylinder bore, it is a fixed clearance, whether the bore is 1" or 24". I usually left .015-.020" on the...

    As Joe Michaels says, the plain bearings in that machine are clearanced for oils and probably have oil grooves in them. Put grease in the machine and, just like the old Dreses radial drill I rebuilt...

    ND 30wt is a little heavy for machine tool oil. Plain old hydraulic oil ISO32 is probably pretty close and likely cheaper than ND30wt. I have an old Sacony book that gives the exact specs, but none...

    Just make up the drawbar and quit fretting. Mild steel is plenty strong for anything you can do with a small mill. Also, if you weld the grade 8 fastener, it's not grade 8 anymore. As said, get some...

    If you have room for it, at all, grab it. That's a good medium sized lathe and as you say, rare as hen's teeth in Hawaii. Yes, the big old lathes have slow spindle speeds, so you use HSS cutters...

    Three variables to get chips to break, speed, feed and DOC. My first go to is feed. If you keep upping the feed and it doesn't break, back off the speed and see if you can get it curl back on the...

    Yup, single phasing. Could be a bad start cap, bad potential relay (not pulling the start caps), or a bad contact or loose wire on the start contactor. I spent a few months starting mine by manually...

    1.5750-1.5753 on the finished bearing bore, you want the bearing to just be snug. Line up the endbell using the step where it locks into the motor housing to dial in the part. I also prefer a mill...

    If it has oil cups, that is how it is designed to be used. You fill the cups before every use and check during the day to make sure they aren't empty. DO NOT use grease anywhere in the gearbox if it...

    The design is also a safety feature. This is why you need to fix your forklift mast IMMEDIATELY if it is leaking at the rod. That's the only thing between the load and gravity.
