    I have heard the term 'clocking' used exactly as you described on several occasions. Sometimes paired with 'timed' or oriented relative to each other.

    Just to add another $0.02.

    Many grinding wheels are resin bonded. Fiberglass is inherently a resin bonded matrix. Anything chemical that's going to eat away at whatever is holding the swarf...

    I'd assume the blob of aggregated swarf is pretty monolithic. And the bond between the blob and the shield is pretty weak.

    I'd try and get in between the fiberglass and the grinding swarf with...

    30 years ago I was threading a hole into a poker-chip sized wooden disk using a threaded awl. Half-way through the disk (predictably) cracks in half and I drive the threaded awl half-way through my...

    That looks like the remains of a grease zerk not a taper pin. Are you sure that handle is pinned in place? Take a picture of the front side of the apron. Is it possible there's a circlip or a nut...

    Militarily, the bomb made a huge difference in the peace that followed. Which is how I would judge the outcome of the war.

    Several major superpowers, all geared-up with huge militaries coming off...

    Attack submarines are expensive. Except when you ask the question: "What's a cost-effective way to deter adversaries from developing aggressive ocean-going navies?" "How does one deter adventurism...

    Just another (non-expert) suggestion. Along the lines of Crossthread's advise: Perhaps you can cope the tube at the location of the bend. Similar to multiple kerfs but really only removing a 90...

    Not an expert, so I'll defer to others that answer. But two observations:
    - 7.5" outside radius seems like a pretty tight radius for 2" OD tubing. Are you sure that's even an achievable bend (and...

    Curious. Why no to the green silicon carbide wheel? Because of the availability of diamond wheels?

    Run the phone over a demagnetizer.

    Just kidding. Don't do that.

    I'm guessing grinding dust that is modestly magnetic is being attracted to the magnet in the earpiece speaker, no?

    If not kept in an otter box (preferred) what about a piece of scotch tape over...
  15. Pocket lint in the charging port of the I-phones...

    Pocket lint in the charging port of the I-phones is a similar issue. About once a month I dig a bit of lint out of the port. If not, it prevents the male charger from fully seating in the opening.

    I'd be reluctant to use a PODS for machine tools (even small ones). There's issues of weight, issues of how you tie-down or secure the various loads inside the POD, issues of theft, issues of where...

    I've tossed them in the woodstove to burn off the organics. Seems to get the heat up long-enough and high-enough (hotter than an oven). Also a plus that if you leave it overnight in the ashes it...

    Ray and Pete nailed it. No picture, but as described above. It slips over the ends and can be slid out a bit to capture the anvils. Then no hands needed to do the final adjusting/measuring.
  19. That makes perfect sense. Slide the clips out and...

    That makes perfect sense. Slide the clips out and they center up the standard on the anvils.

    Thanks for solving that mystery (I spent a bunch of time Googling images to see if I could find a...
  20. Question about an odd Micrometer standard

    I bought a used 5" micrometer standard the other day. Unbranded with a black hexagonal plastic thermal isolation grip (sorry no pictures).

    Each end of the standard has what I would describe as...

    Do you really need to retain the original, or would it be easier to refabricate the base out of steel?

    A bummer, for sure. Short of replacing the floor in either room, my only suggestion would be don’t try and hide or blend the transition. Instead, bridge the gap with a slightly raised threshold. A...

    I hear you about the frustrations of pulling the window units in and out.

    For what it's worth, I heard good things about the mini-split systems. But when I priced them , they were in the...
