    I have some of each eye type, in nylon 1-ply 2" and nylon 2-ply 1". For almost all jobs, it doesn't make much difference. I did select twisted eye type for use with a shop-make spreader because the...

    I don't do 5052 in my shop, but I did a bit of reading and found that 5052 is the only 5xxx alloy which pretty much requires filler. I.e., you can't just fuse it with itself. The problem is weld...

    I am going to make a guess. If the dot names show up on the C: drive but not the A: drive, I'm guessing you can't turn it off. But if the dot names show up on both drives, and they didn't use to...

    Troyke DMT-15 12"x12" rotary cross-slide table is almost the same weight, at 320-330 lbs. I hope you either got a smaller Troyke or your back uses a hoist/crane.
