    That sounds awful, wishing you a quick recovery as well.

    I've still got half a fingernail to grow back, from ... oh, the shame ... a hammer ;-)

    Any chance they're stops for a cross cut fence? Mine has some similar pieces that get set so when the fence is referenced against one the scale is zeroed out with respect...

    I'm assuming you're getting good flow into the hose with it off the saw. If not, you may have already plugged the filter if you've got a leak at the bin.

    As Jerry has noted ... I think it makes a 'no never mind' whether you use black gas pipe, or galvanized water pipe. But if you REALLY care, you can order Stainless Steel from McMaster.

    Yeah, I think only the 1 they extended the fuselage on for more fuel capacity. And had to coat it with an ablative material to survive. IIRC, the damage was from shock waves coming off a dummy...

    There's an A-12 on display in Huntsville. Allegedly a bit faster than a 71. Smaller than I thought it would be. Never got to see a 71 fly, skipped Reno the last year they sent one out. Never made it...

    The payments on my first 'car', a loaded 4x4 Chevy pickup, were more than the mortgage on my parent's house, purchased 6 years earlier. The house they didn't think they'd be able to afford. Which now...

    Patterns, a mating pair. And they have to be really good. Even milling these from a plate, they warp and have to be 'spring clamped' and given a finish pass.

    Re pantographs, that's how they used to profile molds and dies before cnc, using hand carved wood patterns.

    What you might look at are gunstock duplicators. They're set up to rotate both the...

    Grooves or pockets, down cut.

    Solid wood, deep pockets, up cut.

    My gut feeling is small nails thru the tongue is going to result in it being a cosmetic panel at best.

    Yeah, outlets don't push power, your tools suck ;-)

    We've got an RV outlet here. It's 50A as I recall. Currently (ha) disconnected to run a feed to a hot tub.

    I had a 50A circuit and outlet in...

    I don't have one, but I'd guess there are screws attaching the black plate to the main base? Maybe pull the miter gauge portion off and see if they're loose.

    Hard to tell what he's got at the base of the framing. Right on the cement overlay, or raised a bit?

    So here's my thought about it, and feel free to tell me why it's a bad idea. Because, quite...

    I forgot about the welding a nut on trick. But I'm mainly a machinist, so I think 'Mill' instead of 'MIG'.

    I've also had some luck with smallish screws, #6/8 scope mounts, by using a flat end...

    A thread diameter drill will pop the head off. Once it spins, you stop, and don't remove the rest of the thread.

    If the disc is aluminum, there's some chance the black oxide screws have bonded to...

    If you can still crank it up and down without any major crunching involved, its most likely the clock spring.

    If it free wheels, could be it has a gear pinned to the shaft instead of milled from...

    There's a paper on it if you search for 'low temperature oxidation of linseed oil'. I scanned it rather quickly. It's over my head to really read and comprehend it.

    #1 is a scraper for deburring.

    #2 are called 'telescoping gauges. Used with a micrometer generally.

    I agree #3 is a wedge for morse taper tooling.

    I thought I had a report saved on spontaneous combustion, but can't find it. Or online. It was based on mineral oils (which don't) but had some data on 'drying' vegetable oils as well.

    McMaster has shims in about any shape and thickness you could need. Or maybe even want.

    But, yeah, nothing wrong with a credit card, or even layers of tape, if you've got the surface area.
