    I did my old shop space with metal boxes and EMT. Ran most of the 3P to machines in conduit as well. Hate the crappy lock ring fittings and set screws. Told my BIL next time I'd run a cord across the...

    Finish machine everything, especially the ends that butt together. Placement on the machine becomes 'close enough'.

    I'd glue one end first, if the 2 don't meet up perfectly. After it's cured,...

    Seems the ones I've used have knife edge threads on the OD. So a standard tap isn't going to be a perfect fit. Might be a smaller one of the right pitch would help to prevent splitting in hard wood....

    A guy I know wrapped a surplus rifle stock in paper towels and put it on the dash of an old truck he had in his driveway to draw the oil out of it. Would probably get hot enough to kill bugs as well.

    One other little annoying detail about shrink fit. The cutter has to be solid carbide for the expansion differential to work. And the tolerances of diameter are tiny. The smaller the shank, the...

    I was thinking they probably don't make heat shrink at standard collet length. I was wrong. And all the way to a 1/2" shank.

    I was trying to think of something along the lines of what Brian posted, but maybe a side clamp or something. Don't think I've ever seen any with another collet on them. Still requires getting in...

    Seems to me the only lights that run directly off AC are incandescent's. Everything else involves a power supply of some sort. And my guess would be the worst of them are the ones built into the...

    The 'zero' flute type are great, and they make them with pilots as well. But I wouldn't use them on steel. The cutting edge is frail and easily chipped, or just dulled from overheating. Nothing...

    You can order custom lengths and fitting combinations from McMaster. That's what I did for mine. Maybe not the cheapest way to go, but zero hassle.

    They use heat, and steam, at least on guitars. Works with PVA as well. It's not heat tolerant, which is why you're warned to never leave a guitar in a car trunk. I had an instructor who took 2 to a...

    Feynmann talked about this in his Physics lectures, what, 60 years ago?

    'If you want a problem to solve, figure out how to calculate the flow of water really running through a pipe'. Or words to...

    I added a 240-208 transformer for a CNC. Seems to me there was a wiring option that created a neutral on the output side for 120? Is that correct? Still kinda baffles me how that would work.

    That's awesome. Always something here to learn from, and admire the talents of many.

    I had to look how long I've been coming here, at least 'officially'. 13 years, *tomorrow*.

    15 or 16mm? Considering 19mm is almost exactly 3/4", you'd think they'd use that ... considering we 'Murrican's invented the band saw, table saw, and every other thing of usefulness in the world ;-)...

    I had one of mine bind up and destroy the shaft. Chewed up the nut to where running a tap through it wouldn't fix it. Had to drill the ID out a bit to clean up the material that had been extruded in....

    Pry bar and blocks got me to here:

    Just had to be patient, and vigilant. Strapped a pallet on the back and laid it on it's back with an engine hoist.

    It has a solid bottom, obviously....

    I'd agree with this. At some point it all comes down to how much HP you've got ... and whether you can hang on to it. It might take more back and forth's, but fewer depth passes. Far less scary as...

    It's not a miter slot. It's a t slot for clamping the the giant miter gauge (fence) the machine came with.

    I'd try delrin and see how it holds up.

    I made t nuts for my Felder. The main one is...

    Yeah, I think a contrasting strip between the 2 would look great. Like it was planned so they could be transported. Maybe a narrow gap between both joints, for breadcrumbs to fall thru.

    Nice. I was gonna add if it's got ball bearings in it, may as well take it apart if you're going to hammer on it. Good chance they'll need replacing anyway. But might last another lifetime anyway.

    I have the small one from Felder. Used it a couple times. Works ok, but you gotta be gentle with it, and adjust the height to get a fresh surface.
