    Rambaudi is another somewhat-heavier-than-Bridgeport mill. They show up occasionally for sale and there's a thread on rebuilding one if you want to see the insides.

    I have one that looks very much like that. That one is missing the handle and link pivoted from the boss in back. No idea of mfg on mine either, but I wondered if it might have been sold as after...

    In reference to the first picture of Ted using the hand pull scraper (as distinct from shoulder - a mains vs a l'epaule). From my experience he's giving himself a disadvantage with the very long...

    I like that a lot. I have some vials waiting to be used so maybe their opportunity is coming up soon. They were "seconds" from the manufacturer since they calibrated as 11 second vials if that's...

    In the toolroom I worked in one job was machining flat spring steel which we did with carbide. They'd wear out faster but did the job. It should work for you, adjusting feeds, speeds and DOC for...

    I'm with you on hating to farm it out.

    OTOH, I can remember a time early in life making a living at a foreign car garage. Some stuff was just no fun. In the winter, trying to fix rusted...

    That's the Oklahoma Guarantee. If it breaks in two, you get to keep BOTH parts.

    John,

    Dapra lists [email protected] for inquiries, apparently both product information and sales.

    You should probably think through the whole step by step process for a compound slide and some of the answers will pop up.

    Sooo. The upper of the compound will generally have a flat surface. So...

    One thing, if you count it an advantage, is that you own a straightedge made from a more expensive metal than cast iron.

    Another might be touted as a tool that will never rust so I suppose you...

    I bought one of the tiny ones from Gary, scraped it in and painted it. Most of the stuff I work on requires larger tools but this was just too cute to pass by. It prints well so it's not just a...

    Short answer, yes. If the heat treater says "fully annealed" it means that the time at temperature is calculated to be sure the entire section is up to heat. And it also implies that the cooling...

    I have one about that vintage that lost a bearing. They're noisy anyway but the real clue was some balls and pieces of ball retainer exiting from the vent holes. It uses open angular contact...

    I wish I had the space for it. That looks like it will make someone a nice machine.

    If the pulley will at least slide on the shaft, you're almost there. You can file the heck out of the end of the key and replace it later. Also check to see if the end of the crank is peened and...

    Well, it depends.

    If you're replacing the main seal it may actually have to come out. Replacing the pulley, not so much.

    My old go to was to use a set of dikes (diagonal cutters) to grip the...

    Don't mind him. He's just still smarting because he found nothing but coal in his stocking this year. Maybe with a little medicinal drink over New Year's he'll be feeling better.

    IIRC Forrest has written elsewhere on honing. I notice that he's back engaged in another thread so I would hope to have a contribution from his experience.

    It's also possible that you can find usable replacements at the industrial supply places. Even that name that must not be spoken here carries ones like this.

    Keep an eye on how he does with this sale. If he gets his price, who knows, there may be an unrecognized market out there for ones just like it.

    Keep an eye out for flying pigs too.

    And if you're hand holding the part as you lap you'll get a feel for where the tight spots are and you can work back and forth for an even "feel".
