    Even simpler...a large rubber band or inner tube or bungee. Stored slid up the tube until you're ready to use it. Place the mouth of the bag over the chute and roll the rubber band down over the...

    How about a rubber adjustable pipe clamp (like you'd use for removing an oil filter).

    Could replace the original rubber with a strip as long as you need. Secured with vice grips (like LVance's...

    I would as well. Like a pint or cup of it if possible. Happy to pay postage.

    Agree that Paolo is helping you narrow it.

    Sounds (to me) like a burr/fretting on the dial face or the part of the dial that rotates to 'zero' the dial graduations. Essentially a problem with the...

    How about buying a bunch of AXA-35s, and throwing out the chucks. There’s a bunch of meat on the mounting lug that could be machined to hold a special cutter.

    How about buying some AXA-6 holders and cutting off either the top or bottom lug...

    Then welding or bolting your 'special' to the remaining lug?

    Doug-

    I've never seen an un-machined AXA holder.

    Two alternatives:

    1- Make your own AXA holder. It's not difficult to mill the dovetail slot and the tool height post is equally simple.

    I think Monoblanco nails it. The reverse tumbler has two gears. One drives while the other idles. If the only difference is the motor in reverse and the reverse tumbler in reverse, my guess would be...

    I believe Keith Rucker did a series on tuning up the carriage, slide, and compound on his Monarch.

    And search this site for anything written by Richard King.

    I've had success with a piece of...

    I will follow the comments closely, because I've confronted a version of the same.

    My experience (with a 220v 2 hp well pump) and research (limited Googling) is that 4000 watts of inverter and...

    And the knurled thumbscrew is used to adjust the height of that square 'stage' below and between the anvils. That enables you to pick-up the diameter of the bullet from the same or roughly the same...

    Others can correct me if I'm getting this wrong, but I think what you've got is perfect for what you're intending.

    The lever is, I believe, used to open the anvils so you can insert the object...

    Stabilize the moisture in the pole barn (with dehumidifiers, tarps, etc.) Then an application of rust converting primer followed by a quality topcoat. Either enamel or two-part epoxy style coating.

    Two other thoughts:

    Would this not be appropriate for a jig bore?

    Or a diamond burr in a mill (MSC Industrial Supply Co.Part #:64140213)?

    I've used (and very much liked) Long Island Indicator. Some question about 6-12 months ago about whether they were still around, but I wouldn't hesitate to use them if they are.

    The first looks like an adjustable support.
    The second looks like it comes off of a bench center or comparator stand. Slides along a T slot and locks in place with the knurled handle.

    I'm a huge fan of my mechanical digital micrometers.

    No batteries to die and it's just so easy to read the odometer-like numbers. And for greater accuracy the thimble marks are still available.

    $0.02 from the sidelines, but you also want to make sure you've accounted for sag. If the spindle is a slightly loose fit in the tailstock bore, some of your .004 drop when extended could be that...

    Not certain, but don't lab pipettes function like that. Push the button on the top to suck the contents into the pipette?

    Edited: Nevermind. They don't work that way.
