    I have successfully used a polite but firmly worded letter from an attorney delivered via certified mail to each of the owners of the company. Took about 60 days.

    Typically lead/oakum at the bell joint.

    Have not done it myself, but watched it done and believe it can be sweat out with maap torch. But then you're stuck with the bell mouth and I believe...

    Agree with the last several posts. Looking at the picture in post #19 it seems clear the issue is it's double-cutting the thread with the engagement just a little off each pass.

    Can't tell from the photo, but how much stick-out? You keeping it under 3x diameter?

    4GSR-

    Could you expand on 'shocked at how well it performed'. I was looking at that very same extended reach center last week and almost pulled the trigger. But backed away on the theory that at...

    Don't have mine in front of me to check, but highest quality one I've ever seen looks like the Starrett No. 135. On Amazon new for $31. I've always bought them used in pristine condition for around...

    RJT-

    I've recently used 95A to fabricate some vibration-isolating (and break-away) motorcycle crash bar mounting studs for a BMW K-75. Was excellent to work with (meaning easy to mix, pour and...

    A budget-conscious small business owner might grind their own router bit. If I'm not mistaken, commercial router bits (say those sold at Home Depot) are typically HSS blanks with carbide cutting...

    Ditto those who have Milwaukee mag drills with reverse. Just looked at a used Cat No. 4210 Serial No. 295-4488 at Waltham Tool Shed for around $250 that has a reversing switch.

    Having cleared a bunch land sitting on a Sulkey behind a Gravely, I'm going to observe that it takes a fair amount of upper body strength to muscle a Sulkey around. Wouldn't be my first choice.

    If you can get a purpose-built knee feed, great. But a beefy used corded 1/2” electric drill with the splined adapter permanently mounted in it would cost less than $100 and be always ready to use....

    Thanks all for the 'sound' advice.

    In this particular application it's possible a 3-sided box that reflects the sound off into the woods (20 acres) will make a meaningful difference. Only really...

    Anderson might have an appropriate mechanism. Check out their exterior sliding doors.

    Thanks all. Rock wool makes sense. I've used that for fire-blocking in stick-frame construction in the past. Should provide more than sufficient sound deadening and the price is right.

    Appreciated.

    Thanks Doug. I think that would do a lot for the sound level and couldn't be cheaper or easier to install. But my instinct is that standard ceiling tiles aren't particularly inflammable. I'm doing my...

    Thanks Rob,

    I hear you about the ex5500 being very quiet. I have heard very good things about the ex5500.

    Regardless, the one I have- a gently used EM 5000 SX- is a significant upgrade from...

    I'm constructing a weather enclosure to house a portable Honda 5000W backup generator. I am aware that ventilation and heat management are a concern. The shed will be sized appropriately larger than...

    I believe some sellers think and/or hope we won't look at shipping costs.

    They should think again.

    Just clean (brake clean) and remove any swarf or grit. Then light machine oil wiped on, then mostly off to leave a thin coating.
