    I have done that intentionally and unintentionally. If you sharpen any bit and the lips aren't the same length, it will drill oversize. I have to say however that if I am looking to hit a hole size...

    The hydraulic tables are really nice. I bought one about five years ago and use it all the time. I don't like working on my knees on much since I have gotten older. I use it in the shop of course but...

    On that same note, for years I have been using one of those squeeze bottle oilers with the hypodermic tip. You can really get the lube right in where you need it on a cutoff. They are very cheap and...

    I agree with the others who say a threaded insert is not going to hold. Can you weld up the hole and start over? As others have said, I believe you are trying to install the stud wrong. It is...

    You might want to make one of these. I did and it works quite well for what it is. I did not have a variac and they are quite expensive, so I just used a cheap light dimmer. I also found that...

    Thanks very much for all your insight. This is all pretty much theoretical. I don't intend to anneal, harden and temper more then once (hopefully). My grandson was intuitive enough to ask the...

    Thanks BScustoms. I never thought about losing carbon. Yes I am using an open furnace (forge). In my fifty years of doing this I have burned the carbon out of quite a few things by mistake. It has...

    That might be a standard Molex connector. Check their catalog.
  9. Can you anneal and harden steel indefinitely?

    Last night I was in the final process of tempering a machete I am making for my grandson. I am using a light leaf spring for the blade. I was explaining to him the process of hardening and tempering...

    I would think even 12L14 would work for this application and it sure machines nicely. I made one years ago out of 4140 but that was because I keep a lot of that in different sizes and found a cutoff...

    I am somewhat of a hoarder myself but at least I have a fair amount of storage space and I'm not having to move. My affliction is "too good to useitis". Say I have to replace a missing or damaged...

    I had to get a faceplate off a heavy ten that some numbnuts had spun on at high speed (well high speed for a heavy ten). I had to use a brass drift in the dog drive slot and hit the crap out of it to...

    About five years ago my brother in law bought a trashed JD STX38. The bearings had long since gone and had eaten out the housings. Just for grins I turned him a set of bronze sleeve bearings captured...

    Thermite....you do realize I was just kidding about controlling yourself. There's no fun in that. I do however think that it would be better to do a treatise on billet Dildonium rather then Osmium....

    "Very efficient" is pretty relevant here. You can make a fairly good magnet with any piece of steel regardless of alloy. How "very efficient" do you need it to be? When I was a kid we made...

    I have a nice leather apron that I wear but doesn't stop stuff going down the front. If he only needs temporary protection, tell him to keep a shirt handy and put it on backwards. Keeps swarf from...

    I am pretty sure that the key word here is universal. It has been my experience that if a motor is universal then it has brushes and yes you can reverse the motor by reversing the polarity of the...

    I did not see where you said how many of these you have to make but if you do many of these then a jig on your mill table could really help out.
