Re: Need help with lathe finish

That screw that is black, is loose! It will create a high resistance connection and an imbalance of your motor electrical system. You need to pull it apart and clean the wire, the contact pads and maybe replace the screw. That should help a lot.

Re: loose screw issue

Awfully small and beyond my skills, but it just popped into my head... how about a screw in a screw? Like a lock nut, but in reverse. Could maybe work if the hole is blind and preload is set by screw shoulder. Tighten outer to set preload, tighten inner to lock in place. Or along the same lines, li...

Re: loose screw issue

Just a crazy thought. 49823697931_891bd8107c_c.jpg Hard to explain. This is a hole with a pin that is captured and spring loaded. Detents on the underside of thumb screw. When screw is almost time the plunger will settle in one of the detents keeping the thumbscrew in place. Nothing to loss and shou...

Re: Patio's projects

Another quick project. This flashlight was given to me many years ago. It is my favorite flashlight. It quit working the other day, so I decided to see If it was fixable. It was. The switch works just like an ink pen, but the plastic part that held all the other parts, was broken. I was able to supe...

Re: Patio's projects

Now that I had all that set up, I still needed tool holders that would fit, four at a time. They are expensive to buy, so I just cut down some of the ones I had. I used the band saw to cut off the majority of the corner material and then use the face mill to finish to size. 20200410_174956.jpg Being...

Re: Patio's projects

Continued from previous post. This is the angle milled on the gib. It was drilled and tapped for 3/8"X28 bolts. There are also a couple of pins, in the block, used to align the bolt holes of the gib under the holes in the block, for easy assembly. 20200406_114145.jpg I made the square head, 3/8"X28 ...

Re: Patio's projects

Tool Post Block; In another online auction, I acquired a Dorian Quadra tool post, that was missing the handle. I bought a handle and it has since, sat under the table. It sits just a touch high when installed on my compound, to be able to use tooling that uses the entire slot, in the tool holders I ...

Re: Patio's projects

To have the collet closer installed, and still be able to open the cabinet door, I needed to punched out the inside sheet of the cabinet door. This is a tool I use at work, as an electrician, that I like really well. I have a hydraulic set up also, but this is fast and clean. 20200330_142315.jpg Tha...
