    I wonder if we have any folks from India on the forum? If they'd listen to Straightedge and Jscpm they wouldn't have firewood shortages.

    Have you tried contacting Gleason? You never know, they might have the literature (they absorbed Pfauter).

    Call Barden, division of FAG, every time I've had a (tech) question I got put right through to an engineer; would imagine they could just as easily get you a supplier.

    I work with a guy with a bun, maybe 140 pounds soaking wet, can tighten the propane to the point I need water pump pliers to open it (he's a rock climber, told him to back off there), and he doesn't...

    I skimmed through but the gist lines up with the best advice I got starting out, basically don't compete on price, compete on quality, overestimate time and be a hero when you come in under, and keep...

    I have always been fascinated with automation. I remember seeing vids of highly automated lines from perhaps the late 40s making light bulbs and distibutor caps and just couldn't fathom the ingenuity...

    I like the healthcare here in Switzerland. Democratic (they vote on literally everything), you are required by law to have it, you can choose your company and switch companies []once per year[/], at...

    The really good ones were for surgery/dental use, and have been supplanted by actual microscopes or digital in general. I'm a watchmaker, and do everything with either a regular loupe or microscope;...

    Try building something like a simple dividing head you can use on your existing mill, and see how much effort that is, then imagine that 100 (or few hundred) times more time consuming and 50x more...

    60 degree threads should self center fairly reliably when tightened; do you need there to be no play when they aren't tight?

    Jspcm, how many times have you crossed borders by car? I went from ultrademocratic Switzerland to ultra cool Germany to visit a Christmas market about 1km away, and got stopped leaving and going by...

    I don't see any reason you'd want motor oil in particular, I'd put any good ISO 32 (same viscosity as 10w) if it was mine.

    I've had a few of those cheapies, seem ok, 1 had an audible and irritating hum but still worked. I used them for running kitchen gadgets and stuff when I moved over here. They've made their way to...

    I don't know how old you are, but at almost 50 I've found that Doc Martins (air soles) and various high end hiking boots all screw my back. What works the best, for me, is hard soles. My daily wear...

    The nut should fit into a lip on the collet, to help extract it. These are a shallower taper than more typical ER/ESX type collets, so can lock pretty well in the taper. Just keep loosening and it...

    My point was other 1st world countries don't see even a fraction of the mass shootings or gun violence in general. But they have freedom killing things like universal healthcare*, university for all...

    I got no problem with guns and never said so*. The mental issues are for real, and it's not as simple as "kids are coddled now".

    Of 110 since the start of the year I only heard about 4 or 5, so what's your point? What narrative? Are you saying there were more than that but they aren't on record?

    Well, most mass shootings in the U.S. are by far done by white men. Of th 110ish so far this year, 66 by white guys.

    Lots of countries would be alarmed at 110 in 10 years, much less less than 3...

    If you can get the chip to start up the vacuum nozzle you're gold, just don't break the chip! Goes right up like a spaghetti noodle. Once it starts to wrap, ugh. If you're having trouble with fine...
