    I like the lever, it's good for slipping the clutch when you need a very slow speed, say using a large HSS cutter to cut spotfaces, etc. Also for jogging the spindle around while indexing inserts in...

    Where is the confusion? A plated wheel is done once the layer of grit dulls and you can't dress it. Once it wears out you'll need to get it stripped and replated or get a new one. A resin bonded...

    Induction hardening will be fine. Flame hardening will also work. Both will probably cause deformation. Straighten the bar afterward if necessary. Many hardening shops can do this if you can't.

    I ran G&L boring mills for a LOT of years. Most had the aux spindle. They were older machines and the main spindle only had about 375 RPM. The aux spindle was there mainly for drilling at smaller...

    Nope, you don't! I didn't get 'em at auction. They weren't even advertised, sort of fell into them. :)

    Yep, you can. I have a Wells Index with a QC30 spindle. I run a power drawbar also and NMTB30 holders work just fine.

    And if you keep your eyes peeled you might find that it's not so expensive to...

    The only shortcoming other than the setscrews is that the ground finishes in the dovetail aren't real great. The Aloris holders have good flat surfaces and all the same good finish. Looks like they...

    He might be able to get it, with a lot of flipping and shimming if necessary. It will depend on the individual piece of material. If it's mission critical just get it stress relieved before grinding....

    Cheap import holders are okay with an Aloris post as long as you replace the setscrews made of shite. Still prefer used Aloris off eBay though.

    One of the places I worked cut out trenches in the floor and laid conduit with wire already inside, connected at the ends to a piece of copper about 1" diameter with a ½" or so threaded hole. Filled...

    That repeatability spec was specifically for the shot-pin 15° indexing as I read it. The actual indexing mechanism that RJ patented should be able to do a lot better than that I think. He mentioned...

    Sniper? More like d-bag. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but as a child if I was ever present when something was offered to someone else and tried to snap it up before they accepted or refused...

    Yeah I suppose I am used to the gentlemanly behavior like Michael demonstrated. I tend to steer clear of the other types.

    Nope, not the same. These were used dull drills, apparent box full for the cost of shipping.

    So tommy messaged me that someone else replied and he thought it was me. Whoever you are, that was a dirtbag move. That's about all I have to say on that.

    They got spoken for by someone else when I asked? I never got a response...:scratchchin:

    So who's the prick that poached my WTB?

    That's the same one as the Tesa I mentioned having earlier. And I totally agree about the needle being easier to quickly visually discriminate. Pretty sure that Fowler is a rebranded Tesa.

    Neat. The collet only grips the chucking end of the drill, and the cutting end is supported by fingers that pinch with a sort of flexure spring. Very unique. I would imagine that this grinder is a...

    Just for reference since O.P. is asking, by my calculation an arc-second equates to about 60 (58) millionths of an inch across a foot. That's 0.000058".

    And while yes cylindrical squares are an...
  23. WTB secondhand Silver & Deming style ½" shank drills ½"-1"

    Anybody got some extras lying around taking up space? I've got a ½"-1" by 64ths index sitting around waiting to get filled. Prefer secondhand, don't care if they are dull etc.

    You can stick a double length point on an Interapid, but it halves your resolution. So a .0001" indicator becomes a .0002" indicator for instance. I haven't seen a whole lot of long point higher...

    Gotta know what you're grinding. I like a wet belt for metals, but won't work for wood.
