    I'm in a different area, but paid $300 for my 1909 gear-head Hendey. It was in one piece and complete but heavily worn in places. There was also an incomplete 9" South Bend with it that I sold for...

    In all honesty, I'd expect it to only move within the continental 48, and I don't have any plans to move anywhere in the foreseeable future. My Boy-Scout instincts tell me though that If I had a...

    Hey now, If this little traveling shop thing takes off, I'll put that Swiss guy out of business! How about we get a kick-starter going? My containers are in Taiwan right now... but I lost the padlock...

    I've found the CTU code for packing and unloading containers, but nothing about their construction or numbers about how much tilt to expect. I wouldn't expect the container to go further than 90...

    I've had these for years and had nothing to put them in and clue what they fit, but they look like yours. There are no identifying marks on them other than having the sizes stamped on the face. some...

    IMO the military rigs are probably the best balance of quick set-up and mobility. Biggest draw-backs to them I see is that they are heavy on the custom fabrication side, there is little to no room to...

    More space is always better, but I was considering a 20' container over a 40' as it would be easier to move. I found a company that made rigs like this for sale commercially and they had x2 20'...
  10. Putting a Machine Shop in a Cargo Container

    I know it's come up before, but I wanted to get some specifics.

    One of my pipe-dream fantasies involves (like the title says) building a small manual machine shop into a standard 20' cargo...

    Once he gets the right parts, is he looking to sell his current drive? I'd be interested in the cast iron bearing brackets as those are old overhead hangers for flat-belt machinery. Send me a message...

    IMO all digital is temporary. If I want something to last longer than that, old school hard medium is what I do. Sure paper can deteriorate, but you can watch it happen. A damaged memory stick looks...

    I think the ability to make jaws is worth something in the sense that you can make a pair and keep running rather than wait 24 hours for the parcel man to come around, but otherwise I agree.

    Well the Whitcomb is back on it's own three legs and is mostly leveled. I used sheet metal squares and my .0005" Scherr Tumico level to find the high low spots. I used 4x4 blocks and a car...

    I'm no help as this one's on the wrong side of the map for me, and though I hate seeing historical machines like this stripped and put into the "decor" market, I'm happy to see you guys collaborating...

    The broken leg is fixed and paint is drying. I'm hoping to have it back under the lathe tonight or tomorrow and I can then fully level the bed. It was tricky to braze because...

    I'm still in the Kurt boat. Mostly because their design is now an industry standard (that is frequently knocked off unfortunately). We had bought a few knock-offs years ago and were not pleased with...

    If you enjoy building stuff AND don't mind a little monotony, Machining can be an excellent rewarding career. It's one where the more you know, the better you will do, but that doesn't necessarily...

    The rod looks to be the same design as my 1909 16x8 Hendey. There should be a hook under it (or a threaded hole in the saddle casting for it) that swings up and acts as a stop for the rod's thimble...

    Just an update: I tried a 000 tip and it was a slight improvement, but still hard to control and still cutting too wide with my skill level. I finished the job using a handful of 1/16" Dremel cut-off...

    My understanding is that the tightness is not what holds it in place, but the way it's designed. If it has room to move, it'll come loose, but if it's solid with no room for vibrations to take...

    We've run into this before and It kinda depends on the part. Lots of programmers will burn out a "finished" part all on size and then send it to the machinist for follow up ops, but they miss that if...
