    That's important, when it blows up and kills somebody it needs to be the "correct" color. Clean it all you want, epoxy coat the inside, whatever. If you use it without a hydro test you are nuts.

    Only way to know for sure is a hydrotest. Fill it with water and pressure test it.

    I suppose you think there lots of engines with .093 diameter valve stems? Good luck with that! I have an ER collet on my valve grinder that would do it but it is the only one I have ever seen.

    No Idea what the current price for a Centroid control is. When I did mine I bought the best one they had with all the bells and whistles and most of the options as well. I had lots of work for it and...

    I had lots of trouble with the axis drive motors, they had an encoder built in for which no parts were available to John Q Public. The only place that would work on them was in Chicago. They would...

    Looks like a V2xt with a Boss control. Generally speaking the control is so unreliable that the iron is in great shape. There is only one place in the states that will work on the axis drive motors...

    [QUOTE=Bluechipx;3575080]I've been told that when logical mental reasoning and physics clash, go with physics, so here is my dilemma. When I built my home I wanted a large aquarium, 1,000 gallon or...

    I converted mine to ER collets. Best thing I ever did, that ball chuck was a real POS. I welded a ER collet holder to a piece of bar stock a bit larger than the original chuck shaft. To turn the...
