    Sounds like you answered your own question. There's no reason why you can't thread low carbon steel. It often won't get forged, but that's got little to do with its forgeability, it's mostly that...

    Ehhh, not really sure. Intuitively, it seems to be a balance of penetration and conservation. With zero penetration (thick grease), you'd basically be installing a set screw at the port location....

    I have 240V 3-phase. As it happens, it is also 208V.

    As Archer said, if you have 240V leg to leg 3 phase with a grounded center tap between two legs, you will have two 120V leg-ground legs, and...
  5. Your math is funny here....

    Your math is funny here. 200kg*0.5kJ*(kg*K)^-1*200K comes out to 20,000 kJ rather than 200. You could get 2°C rise out of that mass in one second with your induction heater, but you left behind a 100...

    The first step I would take is to post that very same question in the "transformers, motors, and VFD" subforum of this very site, since it seems more relevant to the topic than a management issue.

    Try DuckDuckGo, they don't save or use search histories to alter results, and don't save or sell your personal data. However, they are still commercial and have a partnership with Yahoo, Amazon, and...

    Ehh, maybe it was never stated outright, but the overall message I was reading amounted to "it actually looks kind of nice so there's no way it could be from mainland China" and it seemed like any...

    Yabut... Waste management is so pedestrian. How do you prove that you are making PROGRESS if you spend time and effort to properly do things that you already know are helpful? You can't send a strong...

    The point I was trying to make is that Google Translate is a useful tool, but not infallible. Especially with the Chinese language, you need to give concepts a little wiggle room. Where it says...

    Unless "N0580" is a serial number, of a part, and not a factory?

    Everyone is so fixated on the LH-RH discrepancy, but am I the only one who noticed that the front toolholder is removable, so you can put whatever you want there?

    If you got 3/4" brakes to do, go...

    To expand upon this, the Japanese language actually has three alphabets:

    1. Hiragana, each character represents a single syllable (a, u, ke, chi, su, etc.). These are used for native Japanese...

    Let me take a crack at this.

    A "School" is where you study: e.g. School of Mechanical Engineering
    A "College" is a collection of "Schools" e.g. College of Engineering
    A "University" is a...

    *Ahem*

    Clearly, the threaded rod is intended as a gritty industrial juxtaposition to the shiny spheroid, and meant to contrast the immaculate glass base with its solar panel, which screams out for...

    Yep, this. He always has something interesting to contribute, and I personally find his contributions well worth reading in general. However, we don't need multiple threads started every week that he...

    Don't be so down on amateurs. The word comes from Latin via french, and roughly means "one who loves." It can be used to describe anyone who does something for the love of the activity rather than to...

    No, I mean to keep both ends of the mic aligned to the center of a large work piece, so you know you're getting the true diameter.

    I figured that was just a picture you had handy, since you'd be...

    Exactly. I've been keeping my eyes open for a pair of Bic Venturi 6 that Carbide Bob mentioned above. There are some out there, look in decent shape, but the sellers are all looking at each others'...

    Man, that's impressive. The little 1/4-40 guy on the end just looks so out-of place. Must be a bear to make sure you have both ends on center, or do you use a jig?

    The two points of advice I can give are this:

    If I understand your situation correctly, you can still turn down the shaft without a taper. You must check the tailstock's axis-axis distance to the spindle. Two ways to do this. One is to get a...

    Shouldn't need to index. Since he's clamping to the T-slot, he should be able to go thru on that hole. Based on the width of the T-slots, the fact that he's looking at extended length endmills, and...

    My understanding is that they can't actually do this, but if they post some user agreement legalese, then people won't try it. Might be off-base, but my source is my old man, who is a master loophole...

    It's been seven years, I'm thinking the OP has either gotten the silicone off, or replaced the whole thing by now.

    For what it's worth, lots of the chemicals suggested will degrade the physical...
