    No. Perhaps it may help to post a picture or two of the whole chuck: front, back, side views.

    For lathes with manual change gears (no quick change box) there is almost always one tooth count where the OEM supplies TWO identical gears. This is to allow the lathe to cut threads that match the...

    Yes, if you have all new fluorescents and all good ballasts, then the light will be comparable to the LEDs. But if you want to keep that up, you will need to replace those fluorescents in four to six...

    Well, excuse me. My comments are in red below.





    Probably the biggest difference between a successful oil distribution system and one that fails in 10 seconds is the oil pressure that the...

    Speakers are personal. What sounds good to one is horrible to another. I would just go to the local Best Buy and try out what they have. They should have a set-up where you can switch from one to...

    I assume that is in response to my answer which made reference to counting deck chairs. That is a common remark about a totally useless action. And totally useless is the best description of the...

    I also like that roll pin idea. I think I may even make a fixture with that pin incorporated in it in a manner so that both the side and the top of the pin is accessible by a probe. That would give...

    I have thought about this situation many times. Edge finders are made with finding FLAT sides, WITH SOME AREA to them. A "sharp" edge is a lot different and it presents a different problem. With a...

    So, just what was the final count on those deck chairs just before the waves started to wash then off the decks?

    Well, I will probably get blasted by some here, but I am with you. I have looked at different brands of tool boxes and in the past have purchased Craftsman boxes for my employers' shops. Yea, not one...

    If this is for experimental work, perhaps there is a real need to eliminate galvanic action. In physics labs I can remember solid copper terminals with tapered holes. Tapered copper plugs were used...

    That's the way I read it. They do say to contact them for purchasing options. Perhaps there is a volume discount. $3000 for 100?

    I would make a friendly call to that company and talk about reality...

    You do not understand. You buy the off-the-shelf part of an obscure brand at a quantity price. You take or grind the maker's ID off and replace it with your own. Put in your own bag/box with your...

    I would do one of several things before making a new rack:

    1. Repair the existing, broken rack.

    I am sure that a diamond file would work, but would probably be dead slow.

    I would just get a belt sander, one with an unsupported section of belt and sand them down there. A 100 grit belt would...
