    I've done that in the past. If you use an H.F. grinder frequently, they will last 3-4 months. When you throw them in the can, make sure to cut off the cable and save it if you ever need one.

    It's possibly a rotary cheese converter. In any case, its story has been told. That train has left the station. The ship has left port. It's finished, terminado, finis, Ca-Ca, over and out.

    Not inserts but a couple of years back, I bought what I thought were a dozen LM338K Texas Instruments voltage regulator units from a seller on eBay. The listing said "shipped from US". The price was...

    I keep telling you folks that Thermite is really quite cogent and understandable once you learn his basic dialect. From what I've been able to gather, it seems to be a mixture of Nepalese and...

    There are no band-aids for machinery. As mentioned, those reamers are not the ticket for a lasting repair. Do yourself a favor and have the new bushings machine-honed. You will be glad you did.
