    While this is somewhat of a common recommendation it's not a great one. It's actually more likely to grab the drill and more likely to chip/wear the cutting edge. It shouldn't be used to use a larger...

    Good suggestion. Roxul is one brand. You can get it in batts or denser more board like variations as a replacement for rigid foam insulation.

    You're mowing 8-10' high weeds, rocks, and stumps, with a lawnmower and asking why you're breaking stuff....get a real tractor with a bushhog or flailmower, one of those might stand a chance, but...

    A fine line between the OPs situation and Tyrone's, well maybe. Tyrone's boss was clearly unethical from the get go, never intending to purchase one let alone multiple of the belt linishers, only...

    Does the lathe part off ok? What about somewhat heavy turning/facing? If it does both well that eliminates a lot of things and points to gear train and tool. If both of those are a struggle as well...

    Going back to what bobw and danielg said, flaking off of seasoning to me implies too much seasoning has been applied. I also agree the best I've used are older and are very smooth, something I wish I...

    Thanks. Being a product of the 80's myself I wasn't sure. I was under the impression that Hanson/Irwin was once pretty decent stuff and being Made in the US would provided indication that these were...

    Has anyone who bought these used any of them yet?...

    Has anyone who bought these used any of them yet? I ran a small hobby job that consisted of 18x 11/64" (0.172") holes running 1500 rpm or so in a manual mill through 3/4" 316 stainless, using thread...

    Agreed, I made a second key at one point and it never got much use, requires 3 hands. The "key" is not to tighten too much when you're closing in. It all clicked for me when watching Adam Booth, his...

    140F is not too hot after running continuously for 15 minutes, it's about perfect. When mines tight enough to not chatter it definitely warms up. No-load doesn't matter, it is loaded by the bearing...

    41 ft-lbs is common value given in charts for 7/16"-20, grade 5, slightly lubricated. Grade 2 is 27 ft-lbs. This is likely at 75% of yield.

    So 25-35 isn't bad advice Clive, not really knowing what...

    That's fine I was not suggesting any scraping etc. if your headstock was fitted permanently at the factory, which it may have been. Many are not, and though the v-ways may go underneath the HS, the...

    Make sure you understand your VFD settings/terminology with respect to ramp down vs coast to stop. You don't really want to ramp down in 0 seconds, with the VFD trying to control the stop. That...
  14. I agree you're in the realm of perfectly good...

    I agree you're in the realm of perfectly good enough and expecting to hold 0.0001" on a 12" is likely not a reasonable expectation and better than factory new spec. Having said that, you do have some...

    I'd definitely try to Tormach first. No adapter, and it'll be more rigid and therefore I think less likely to break the cutter. Stalling alone shouldn't break a HSS cutter.

    Sounds to me like you need to have a conversation with everyone about how the shop is run. Deburring on the drill press is currently a no-brainer if the operator is standing around during the cycle....

    The range of responses here are quite interesting and people seem pretty quick to jump to conclusions about the guy. Him asking you for a job suggests nothing negative about how he feels about your...

    First, that tool is really long and skinny, it's going to cause issues, exacerbated by a tormach. Any manufacture chart is likely not expecting that fragile of a tool.

    "RPM near max" is too...

    I stop mine in like 2 seconds with the VFD and it has not been and issue. I’m not sure I’d worry about a riveted belt. It’s not like you’re worried about slipping or anything

    No you are right. His numbers are off by a factor of 10. Spindle movement on both those tests should be in the neighborhood of 1-2 tenths.

    Also OP if you’ve done the spindle run in procedure per...

    I would not run it backwards. Braking is a short duration and likely less power than a good cut.

    Many people including me use a link belt for the same reason. It will be fine, though it will stretch a little a first and likely require removing a link or two.

    What angle is your compound set at and is it locked? Are you locking your cross slide on your final cut?
