    I have both, and very much prefer the single ended for close tolerances and odd workpieces.
    I guess that's why they make both. :)

    Following. I can't even get consistent black color from any of the anodizers I've used.

    They aren't my first choice either for sure. I generally start with a simple tap wrench or a guided wrench then switch to something else to crank away on the tap. I have a half of a vidmar drawer of...

    I remember that, many manufacturers and distributors in SEMA were affected. I had the impression the lawyers were trying to collect so they would get paid their fees.

    Goal oriented vs action oriented, plus OCD factors, makes others incomprehensible.

    +1 for the Gearwrench big T-handle and chuck. I also picked up a smaller size chuck made by them but they don't seem to have a T-handle for that size. They do have a die holder for the big one.

    It's amazing how densely packed the dirt is between the roots, isn't it? Can't even dig it out with a machine properly.

    Excellent idea but these are way too big for that. I can't get them in a 2.5 yard bucket on a trackloader, all I can do is roll them around.

    I have found it way easier to push the whole tree down...

    How do you get big stumps to burn? I've pushed out some big ones, 8 ft or more in diameter balls, left them dry for a year, pushed big piles of brush around and over them, burned the piles and the...

    Do they know enough about manufacturing, and about business in general, that they understand doing it on the manual machine means more cost, an unknown amount more cost, without you going into...

    Thanks for that. I'm seeing prices of ~$380 per roll elsewhere and I'm considering trying a couple sizes.
    Press fit is not a concern, the shells are clamped in place in a split housing.

    The bearing shells have steel backs, just like an engine bearing. They form an interference fit in the saddles when the saddle size is correct. I need to restore that fit by shimming with the correct...

    Had an experienced rebuilder recommend I use pure nickel shim material to correct the fit of shell type plain bearings in a machine because that's how he does it. Another says brass or steel would be...

    How far do you need to move them? For small machines like that I just slide them on 1/2"or 3/4" diameter steel rods, unless I'm going 30 or more feet.

    Make sure you put enough beads in the tire, it's better to err on the high side. I put beads in the new 12X16.5 tires on the front of my old 69 Chevy C20 and was disappointed that it shook at speed....

    I put them in big heavy 245/70 x 19.5 10 ply tires on steel wheels on a 1 ton and they ran perfectly for 100K miles. The tire store had them. You can blow them in through the valve stem also.
