    "That's the same people that eat lunch by walking the aisles of the grocery store, and taking all the free samples. "

    I'm convinced - from my own observations - that there is a group of people who...

    I just stumbled across a great band, if anyone is interested, give them a listen. They have a great back beat and I think they could go places.

    All good suggestions...but probably the fastest is to tell him, one time only, "Sorry but I just took on a huge order that will keep my shop tied up for the next 2 years."

    Exactly my thought. The programming is probably where the money and comfort is....sad to say, perhaps.

    If you can design the part, create the program, and then let someone else go out and push...

    My biggest gripe with 'oilite' bushings and the like is I have a rather large assortment of them, accumulated over the years....yet they are unmarked and I really don't know what they are with any...

    Thanks. I read up on that last might...no grinding (to avoid embedding abrasive particles)or dull tooling. Of course, if the Oilite will run in hot oil I'm not sure the closing of pores would...

    lol. The application is in fact a Chrysler oil pump driveshaft. But it's not an early Hemi, it's a later 340.

    Regardless, Chrysler used these in millions of engines for over 50 years. My post...
  8. Oilite bushings - Rotational speed 'ratings'?

    I want to run an Oilite-type bronze bushing...1/2" diameter shaft, rotating as high as 4000RPM.

    When I look at McMaster's bronze bushings, they are all rated for various loads at 120RPM. No other...

    Thanks. I'm still confused and wondering if I'm a dummy or if those Germans can't draw a diagram....but either way I'll try it out.
  11. Stego temp/humidity control - what am I doing wrong?

    Trying to use this Stego ETF 012 to turn on/off a heater in my mill's control box.

    I wired 120vAC to Terminals 1/2. The 'front half' of the control seems to work well. I can turn the dials up...

    Probably just someone finishing the construction of a new building. Beirut has some very strict zoning laws that require any new building to look just like everything else around it.

    I have a DoAll 1612-3, it uses a gearbox (3 speeds ) and also a variable pitch pulley. It has a really wide speed range, wider than I've ever needed.

    This is the kind of sappy attitude that I can't handle. I'm dead sick of white man's guilt being ladled onto every aspect of existence.

    I looked at the Mitutoyo 515-311 on Ebay, they are $1000 at the least.

    There is a 515-310 that can be bought for around $300. It is the 'non-staggered' version.

    But I gotta admit, both look...
