    We're 1/4 mile from the scrap yard we use. They don't mind selling off the pile by the pound. Last time I was there I saw what looked like a small VTL and a very large cylindrical grinder. Both had...

    Nothing wrong with a round ram BP provided it's used within it's limits. It's a 1/2hp mill, no more or less.

    I've never had my M-head as far apart as you're describing. From what I understand in...

    Ok, Paragon got back to me with some documentation on the process.

    A couple key points are the flow rate of the gas, and time for it to cycle. They recommend that the gas be regulated to 20 psi,...

    With radio's, I think it depends on the overall noise level of the shop, which can change a lot and therefore be another annoying topic of controversy. The easy and safest solution is to ban all...

    I'm similarly looking for a 3" non insulated standard to complete an old set. Keep an eye on Ebay, that's where I've been filling most of my Starrett holes. I'm not sure if they sell them new anymore.

    Yes, but we do them cold. After machining they are straightened in an arbor press, then stress relieved, then straightened again, then heat treated, then ground flat. There's a little bit of bow...

    We never got to, but I think your right it was CO we were going to try. We might revisit that process but I think the standard oil quenching or packing parts in case-hardening compound would produce...

    Thanks for catching that, I'll see about adding some felts. There wasn't anything in them when I started, but the previous owner had pumped grease into the ways which likely contributed to their wear.
