    Man, what a nightmarish diagram. Can't say I blame you for struggling. Can't even tell which labels are referring to which devices in the case of that 4 pole... switch? Contactor? God, I hate IEC...

    Some of them have the adjustable table, some don't. I think it was an option. AFAIK they all have non-reversible power feed though. Normally via cone pulleys, but the one pictured appears to be a...

    So I've been thinking some more.

    I've got a pile of freebie 6-wire NEMA 23 stepper motors that have been collecting dust for the past decade. I could very easily mount a 100:1 planetary gearbox...

    Yeah, but I go down to my garage and it's projects to escape from other people and their grief - not to sit in front of my computer and deal with approval drawings, quotes, invoices, slow E-mail...

    Two 30A single pole circuit breakers. That means you either have:

    Since my OP I've been thinking about using a stepper motor to index an arbor using timing belt pulleys with 6:1 reduction. I'm thinking either XL or MXL timing belt pulleys should offer adequate...

    A 12kVA load on a 7.2kVA circuit plus a handle tie violation to boot.

    Commonly referred to as a 'homeowner special'.

    Granted it is a welding load so you could maybe cheese it by citing Article...
  10. Methodologies for one-off gears in an antique home shop

    This is just a brain teaser that's been stuck in my head off and on for a while now. I figure if I can get it down into writing here and discuss it openly rather than keeping it bottled up as a...

    If you think AFCI and GFCI nuisance tripping are bad, take a guess at what happens when the GFPE controller for the main beaker in a high rise substation accidentally gets left at the factory setting...

    Shaper prices are very regional. Places like the rust belt have relatively plentiful machines for hobbyists to cherry pick, whereas other regions are colloquially known as 'machine tool deserts'. ...

    Indeed, sounds like a suck unloader valve. Might even be cheap enough to replace the whole valve if you don't feel like screwing with it.

    Tried adjusting the brass thumb screws? They have dog points and are used to lock down the fingers. The also serve the purpose of stopping them from rotating. If they get backed out too far the...

    That would be my first guess. Hot compressed air at 350*F leaking down into the crank case where it cools and condenses.

    If you've got bad rings you might as well test run it unloaded for fifteen...

    Some may argue we are in more dire need of mental fitness test mandates for political candidates.

    In my limited experience, lubricating the valves in place is not sufficient. Corrosion which sits proud of the valve seat is probably the culprit. The only way to correct this is with a rebuild of...

    In other words, I want more information on the long-term effects of these new mRNA therapies before committing to that irrevocable choice.

    In other words, someone's ability to feed, clothe and house themselves. No jab = no job = no income = bank repossessions = homelessness and poverty.

    Sounds like compulsion to me.

    I can tell just from glancing at your picture that the reason most of your heating is occurring in the leads rather than the screw is because the leads have greater resistance than the screw. In...

    Definitely refrigerant pumps.

    Not worth a whole lot in terms of usefulness - mostly collector's value.

    You could convert them to run as air compressors if you equip them for...

    Bad head valves or bad pilot valve. Both easy fixes with the right parts and a lathe with back gears and a cam-lock spindle. (A 4-jaw chuck, a sturdy screwdriver and some heat work great for...
