    The other advantage of the L6-B is the cost; it’s already done and was designed to fit and work.
    If I make a solid toolpost mount, the material alone might be close to $200... time spent will be...

    Yeah. I like the repeatability aspect and it looks nicely done.
    And I know the HLV-H is a small lathe, so small tooling is ok.

    And yes, the HLV-H is a small lathe, but I already have a BXA toolpost mounted on it and some BXA holders.

    I even had the crazy notion of getting a CXA toolpost on a solid mount replacing the...

    The L6-B design, fit and finish is very nice looking!
    One thing you seem to give up is tool variety and size.
    Yes, you could machine holders to be held by those 3/8” turret slots, but with an...

    Yeah.
    Almost bot-like.
    Is he trying to post a ton so he can just start selling?

    All the stone boats I ever rode or pulled were heavy timber wood with wood skates/glides.

    Definitely something lacking.
    1. The messaging system is VERY constrained.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, I’ve seen that online (never in person) and it looks nice!
    The price is certainly right given that it is designed for it! I just messaged you.
    I think his mount has some advantages,...

    That’s a LOT of stored energy!

    Unfortunately, I can’t use work stuff for personal use; Cape Canaveral and other launch facilities are too far to haul this heavy thing, and I would get fired for...

    I bought it for $100 and I was already planning on pressure testing it, but I’m ok with not using the tank.

    Point taken that it might have corrosion pinholes and pockmarks.
    It’s easy enough to...

  19. Emptying/“fixing” old compressor air tank

    Anybody know the color name/code/match for Ingersoll Rand cream/light tan?

    Now that I think of it, I wonder if people have tried lining/epoxy coating the insides of tanks ?
    I know they do that...

    It’s age and date are kind of part of the appeal of the thing.
    If it isn’t sound, I’ll get rid of it.

    The compressor itself works well, so if I have to, I’ll go with a new tank, but hopefully...

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that is the approach I was thinking on taking.
    Inexpensive and not too much work to hot pressure wash the interior.
    I already took one of the large plugs off, so that’s how I...
