    I keep my 6" calipers in a Starrett scabbard I bought 5 or so years ago. I figured if I wore it out it would make a good pattern to make my own with our company logo tooled into the front, because I...

    I've never had need for anything over 1HP, and if there was a risk of pushing it over, it wasn't being used or treated properly. I've had a few that would vibrate a bit, but that's always a balancing...

    I think a step-up transformer is the best option without modifying the machine, but they typically can be expensive. Size is in voltamps and will depend on the voltage and watts/amps that the machine...

    Any tap can be a dangerous tool in the wrong hands. I've had to fix too many threads damaged by idiot mechanics cranking SAE taps into metric threads, forcing bolts into gaulded holes, etc. In many...

    IMO anti-seize compounds are not intended to be put on any thread "just for good measure." It's a counter measure to rough environments and nothing more. A light film of oil on any mechanical...

    So when does the new lathe get the John Deere green application?

    I'm in a different area, but paid $300 for my 1909 gear-head Hendey. It was in one piece and complete but heavily worn in places. There was also an incomplete 9" South Bend with it that I sold for...

    In all honesty, I'd expect it to only move within the continental 48, and I don't have any plans to move anywhere in the foreseeable future. My Boy-Scout instincts tell me though that If I had a...

    Hey now, If this little traveling shop thing takes off, I'll put that Swiss guy out of business! How about we get a kick-starter going? My containers are in Taiwan right now... but I lost the padlock...

    I've found the CTU code for packing and unloading containers, but nothing about their construction or numbers about how much tilt to expect. I wouldn't expect the container to go further than 90...

    I've had these for years and had nothing to put them in and clue what they fit, but they look like yours. There are no identifying marks on them other than having the sizes stamped on the face. some...

    IMO the military rigs are probably the best balance of quick set-up and mobility. Biggest draw-backs to them I see is that they are heavy on the custom fabrication side, there is little to no room to...

    More space is always better, but I was considering a 20' container over a 40' as it would be easier to move. I found a company that made rigs like this for sale commercially and they had x2 20'...
  17. Putting a Machine Shop in a Cargo Container

    I know it's come up before, but I wanted to get some specifics.

    One of my pipe-dream fantasies involves (like the title says) building a small manual machine shop into a standard 20' cargo...

    Once he gets the right parts, is he looking to sell his current drive? I'd be interested in the cast iron bearing brackets as those are old overhead hangers for flat-belt machinery. Send me a message...

    IMO all digital is temporary. If I want something to last longer than that, old school hard medium is what I do. Sure paper can deteriorate, but you can watch it happen. A damaged memory stick looks...

    I think the ability to make jaws is worth something in the sense that you can make a pair and keep running rather than wait 24 hours for the parcel man to come around, but otherwise I agree.

    Well the Whitcomb is back on it's own three legs and is mostly leveled. I used sheet metal squares and my .0005" Scherr Tumico level to find the high low spots. I used 4x4 blocks and a car...

    I'm no help as this one's on the wrong side of the map for me, and though I hate seeing historical machines like this stripped and put into the "decor" market, I'm happy to see you guys collaborating...

    The broken leg is fixed and paint is drying. I'm hoping to have it back under the lathe tonight or tomorrow and I can then fully level the bed. It was tricky to braze because...

    I'm still in the Kurt boat. Mostly because their design is now an industry standard (that is frequently knocked off unfortunately). We had bought a few knock-offs years ago and were not pleased with...

    If you enjoy building stuff AND don't mind a little monotony, Machining can be an excellent rewarding career. It's one where the more you know, the better you will do, but that doesn't necessarily...
