Look up a tree panning tool. It’s actually easy to grind and they cut like butter. Ground one the other day to cut a 8” slug out of a 2” plate of mild steel. Had to cut one side halfway through, then flip it over and cut through the other side till I just got through then pushed it out in my press t...

little late to the party here. I have an 06. You probably have a egr cooler failure. Your options are to do an EGR delete, your cheapest option, a Bulletproof egr cooler, about 3k, or while your at it, go with the full bulletproof kit for that engine, consisting of a new egr cooler, headbolts and ga...
I got one of these the other day, NOS Kenametal 2" with kenametal inserts. Took a little fiddling with but it cuts a ok finish in mild steel but I noticed that it liked the higher end of the RPm and a fast feed rate. I was running 930rpm and about 12ipm feed at .010 Depth. IM running a Lagun 2hp btw.

I picked up a px24 but it was missing all the fingers and clamps. Looking on EBay for the price of fingers, OUCH!!!. I have decided to make them from 4140ph but I need a dimensional drawing of a finger from someone. Anyone have one of these that could take a few minutes to measure one? Thanks in adv...
Rooster, what part of LA are you in? Im in the Baton Rouge area but travel to north LA a good bit. Anyway I had a lathe like that, the 12 atlas Just without the underdrive cabinet.

Glenn, I emailed Grizzly about this, and like you, I found their oil recomendations lacking. The rep recomended either low viscosity hydraulic fluid or Velocite 10 for the headstock, and vactra 2 for everything else.

What I did was to use my porta power to pick it up off the pallet and bolt my leveling feet to the bottom, then place blocks in between the pallet slats onto the floor. I then took my sawzall and cut up the pallet, pulling the pieces out. Then I placed...
