    Bingo. For any selection of anything there is seldom a choice that is superior in every aspect. You take the one that has the most ideal characteristics for the situation. It may still have some...

    I hate the single ended ones. On bores near the size of the small end of the gage range that puts the handle right up against one side of the bore. That means the pivot point with the handle is not...

    I think it's a pretty textbook case of trolling the troll... But that should be done out of the public eye if they insist on keeping it up. Like I said before, if they're so in love they need to get...

    Already volunteered to moderate. I'd handle it myself if given the go ahead, but no word from Don. I've got plenty of time with my f'ed up back. Mostly stay at home dad these days, with some shop...

    I see thermite defending himself, albeit excessively (and in an inflammatory manner); donie attacking. Both apparently need a grown-up in the room. Don't need a ban, but a warning. If it happens...

    Yes.

    As far as tarnishing, chromium carbide blocks are not steel alloys. They are ceramic. The material is used in severe corrosive environments on valve bodies specifically because it has...

    Gregor, why don't you send this question to Starrett/Webber? They are probably more qualified to answer than any of us. If they will answer anyway.

    I don't think it's inferior. It's used in valve body facing where tungsten carbide doesn't last. Mainly due to better corrosion resistance I think. Probably either one is pretty bulletproof as a gage...

    I think the above advice is good. Someone at some point drilled my 847 for a new detent beyond it's original one, probably for the same reason. It currently works in either detent in high range, so...

    In addition to all the other concerns, if you are trying to achieve a straight guiding surface you are going about it all wrong. That long of a tube with that thin of a wall will NOT stay straight...

    In addition to what was said already, grinding does not generally produce a mirror finish. You need lapping for that. Grinding on a mill is asking for trouble. Grinders are specifically designed to...

    I volunteered to help moderate half in jest on another thread. Another moderator reached out and said I ought to email Don. I did that and volunteered to help out but nothing back besides crickets....

    Now YOU have got ME wondering if there's any catenary sag in zero-G. And how a straight edge scraped on Earth would print differently on the same surface plate in outer space. Thanks... :D

    It's sort of a pain to measure. Gotta pull it under tension and roll to get the "true diameter" which is usually a little bigger than the "nominal diameter." Either way, no worries - it will be more...

    I have, when it has come up as a question. This is not that, though.

    I can use one of those for my ATV winch. Spares never hurt. PM on the way.

    FYI, according to Kubota that part number equates to a 3/16" dyneema line - which should be around 4,900 pound MBS.

    Don't know about the rest of you fellas, but if I were the seller in this case I'd not have been thinking this was a buyer trying to scam at all. Some guys aren't on PM every day or even every week....

    He's got it in for sale at $850. Probably why it's getting crickets. Some people still use the old school stuff but not the high-falutin' shops with lots of dollars to spend. Those guys have the...

    Sounds like you probably can't get the SFM where it needs to be. 1018 will probably need a crazy high SFM using a cermet insert to achieve plasticization of the chip and/or prevent built-up edge....

    How about instead you post some shit that's actually worth reading and drop the rest. Nobody cares about your vendetta. Nobody. Take it to PMs if you're that desperate to write the guy a love letter,...

    I was going to say donie is like a broken record, but this is worse than a broken record. At least that's usually playing something pleasing to the ears.

    O. P. There probably isn't much new out...
