    no no NO! No need to wire in a reversing switch - just tip the mill upside down; voila! Spindle now goes the other direction! No, wait... Just flip the part over and turn the spindle on. No...

    When I scrapped the bed for mine, it was right around 400 lbs for scrap weight, and the pallet that came from Monarch with the replacement was a little over, but that also included a saddle. This...

    Thanks for the explanation. I asked as a point of discourse - not to state that I had a reason to think that the inserts were a method that was...

    Out of curiosity, why would one of these methods be "better" than the other? In one instance, you are significantly altering the casting by performing multiple machining operations (milling,...

    Well, different strokes and all that...

    I still think I could have just pushed it faster, crummy casters and all.

    And I wouldn't call getting rid of J. Clarkson after 22 series of Top Gear...

    Total side-track, but where abouts do you live, Engineer? I've been back to visit my grandparents (now dead) in Groton, very near Cortland. I love that part of the country.

    I actually went...

    Vettebob - any chance you have photos of what the base looked like after machining, but before bolting in the inserts? I'm assuming that you scraped in those inserts after mounting to the tailstock...

    I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. That certainly takes all the joy of the arrival of a long awaited machine, and turns it into heartache!

    I've used a bunch of cold saws, and exactly 1 worked really well. The other 4 or 5 ranged from sometimes worked alright, sometimes not to absolutely terrible to the point of uselessness.

    Yeah, and saves my poor old gal some gear grinding like a teenager learning to drive stick! Though I have to admit I was curious to see how the other parts fit up.

    That's a joke, in case someone was about to take me seriously.

    I thought it was pretty cool that he had what looked to be a Quad vise on the table there. Doesn't/didn't Metalcutter (Stan Dornfeld) make those? I always liked the look of those, for an all...

    Would it be feasible to just cut it out of a section of thick walled pipe and mil the back flat? Depending on what it's for, could you cast it out of epoxy? If those weren't options, I'm with the...

    I'm pretty sure those will buff out just fine. The oxidation on those stocks will just scrape right off with a razor blade.

  24. Mystery metallic part, possible wagon related. Can anyone identrify this?

    Yeah. You pretty much have to be dead to be "legendary" (that's not a suggestion, BTW). Otherwise, you can be tracked down, and your existence confirmed, no longer being a legend. Give it 60 years...
