  1. Slightly OT Effective life of the LiFePo4 16850 battery cell

    Perhaps many of you have noticed that this 18650 is the most common Li cell on the market, but there is a myriad of manufacturers, amp hour ratings and prices. It is a mine field. I have spent...

    Yes. The 10K does not have a telescoping cross feed screw. So, when using the TA the cross feed is disabled and the compound is used for the in feed. It takes some getting used to, but it works OK.

    That's about right, but add a TA, add another $500. If it includes metric change gears, add another $500. If it includes collets, add another $300. Add follower rest and steady rest, add another $250...

    From the photos you included, no it would be very difficult, but it look like the pusher is not only in rough shape, it appears incomplete.

    OK, I got it..........based on your previous experience, you're making a wild assed guess. Unlike you, I've done the schematic and manual acquisitions and the world-wide searches for parts and I'm...

    Not to my knowledge. No directions were included when I received mine. It isn't rocket science, but it is exacting. If you find one and want to install it, we can help.

    John is correct, but they also require a different cross feed top casting as well as the screw. I will venture to say that you will not find an original for sale, they are very scarce and were only...

    Ted, all these 10L have the 36" bed and no TA, lot # 75 and # 84. But I stand corrected on lot # 92. It is stated that it too has a 36" bed, but I am pretty sure it is the 42" and it does have a TA.

    For such an experienced person, I'm shocked with your TA opinion. On the additional space increase that a TA adds it just is not true. On the SB cabinet machines the added distance, 7.5",does not...

    I had one of these mills and just recently sold it. Those motors are non-existent. The schematics for your machine are based on your serial number. They were custom from the factory and unique to...

    To the OP, the prices are very reasonable. The SB10L lathes are the short bed variety and have no TA, those are detractions. They all have transposing gears and those are super scarce and a big plus....

    You are not being realistic. Buying a decent lathe for $2,000 is not realistic in any size. This is especially true if it has chucks and tooling with it. Small machines hold their value much longer...

    George, I can't believe inserts cannot be found. I know it can be difficult, but try shopping by size required. If all else fails, contact Sandvik, they are usually very helpful. Nobody wants to see...

    Perhaps my preference of R8 over a 30 taper is misunderstood. Yes, the 30 taper is more stout, but only by a bit. Certainly the difference does not warrant the cost difference of tooling. Both R8 and...

    These coolant tanks need to be skimmed and cleaned periodically. It is always a nasty job. I cannot imagine just how difficult and nasty that task would be with your balls........jus' sayin.

    I would never consider a 30 taper because of tool holder costs and availability alone. The R8 standard is world wide common. Before you pull the trigger,do your own tool cost comparison. Keep in mind...

    The return shipping can exceed the end value in both cost and time wasted.......that's why. Buying shit from China is not like buying stuff in the local hardware store.
