Re: Patio's projects

I had bought a collet closer for my lathe at an auction, for a very good price. It is a jet brand and is made to fit a jet lathe. I am in the process of adapting it to fit the Caz. The draw bar for the jet is about 22" long. The one I need for the Caz is about 36" long. I intended to modify the Jet ...

For those in the NW, the photo was hanging in the "Brooklyn Tavern" in Brooklyn WA.

Re: Patio's projects

Next I made the clamping plate, to fit the square headed bolt, that came with the steady rest. Being there are no critical measurements on this project, I just scribed some lines around the bolt head, once it was aligned with a square. I used an endmill to drill the corners and then milled out the p...

Re: Patio's projects

Hi everyone! I am still kicking, life is busy and that is a good thing. I did get some shop time, and got a round-to-it project done, today. I have never had a steady rest, but had wanted one a time or two. I could buy one for the Cazeneuve HBX360, but the guy want $450 bucks for it, with is more th...

Re: One man's insanity---the story of an induction furnace

Can we call you "Patio-H? If the comment was directed at me, no, this is all Harold's doing! I am just a friend. I appreciate the innuendo, though. :) I have had very little to do with the actual building or design of this unit. My part in helping Harold, is pretty much what Harold has always done ...

Re: One man's insanity---the story of an induction furnace

To add a little technical data to the story. We did get the 3" material to heat up to about 400*+F. We initially had the charge set in the middle of the furnace, once we knew it was operating, (about 120A going into the coils of the furnace) we moved the charge up against one side of the furnace, fo...

Re: Controlling Silver Braze Flow

I wonder if White Out would work. I see it used on the TV show, Forged in Iron, when they are making Canister Damascus steel. It is used to line the container so the steel put inside won't stick, allowing them to remove the canister from around the forge steel. Just a thought, I have no real knowled...

Re: One man's insanity---the story of an induction furnace

Today is the day, that we are going to excite, the secondaries of Harold's furnace. We will let you know the results later. It will either be very good, or very bad. I don't know that there is to much in between. Wish us luck, we can use all we can get here.
