    I'll go with a landing gear fixture too, that was my guess before reading #3. As to worth, whatever you can get from the scrappy. Or use it as the central pillar for a coffee table.

    BTW, best use...

    From what I can remember on my '97 VF-2, getting the rubber strips to fit correctly in the slots is a pain. Take your time to make sure you get them fully inserted, we had to remove the covers and...

    The brother of the UPS driver thinks it was police bullets that killed him. Given the massive number of shots they fired when surrounded by civilians, I won't be surprised if he and the other...

    Stainless will have corrosion advantages (duh), especially if the welds are passivated. It should also be "smoother" (unless pipe is used), better for swinging grips (rougher would be better for...

    Or make up a "C" fixture that has a tail that slips behind the part (in between the chuck jaws), then has a cylinder or screw to press the bushing in. Think long, short-jawed C clamp with bushing...

    I would suggest that you have a proper spindle rebuilder do the work. Yes, it's more expensive but you'll save going through the effort/time/cost of DIY only to have a proper shop redo it when you...

    No, there are times you have to do this. As I said in #6, I had to deal with other groups that were concerned about vibrations interfering with their work. So, whether "needed" or not, we went...

    Does seem an odd failure for an aluminum cut. You do have a long trough, and if the coolant isn't enough to clean out the chips you may be recutting them, which even with Al is not a good thing for...

    Try the usual - a mechanic's stethoscope on the housing (carefully!) at the upper and lower bearing locations. If you can reach the motor do them too.

    John, do you have a link to this "scaling powder"? I did a quick search and didn't find anything.

    That's a reasonbly clean machine, price would get you a full VF-4 or so of a similar year with much more utility for most work. But if you have to fit it in a garage with limited power, the office...

    Forget the sound, it LOOKS funny. Like it's mother dresses it (and actually doesn't like the kid).

    Use a formed sleeve. For only a few, and at minimal cost, you're chasing an errant errand to try to bulge the center.

    Ditto for Al, but worse due to the crap fatigue properties of aluminum. ...

    For oil-fed bearings. For grease (thick, intermittent lube) I think you'd want greater clearances.

    Huh - a rare instance where the manufacturer had the best pricing.

    If you post the actual bearing numbers it would help the future viewer. Belt too, if you sussed that out.
