Re: Bridgeport shaper attachment

My apologies for not replying sooner, but my friend tried to log in here and failed. So, he posted the attachment on e-bay as item # 203246169083 at a price of $1000. local pickup or ship at buyer's expense. If you talk to the owner, I am sure he can fill you in on all details. --earlgo PS I won't d...

Re: Old brazed on carbide facemill inserts?

If it were mine, I'd take it to the local tool sharpening guy and have it done professionally. It should then last until it hits another hard spot.

Re: Compressor timer switch question

When I read your original post I immediately thought of my well water pump and pressure tank setup. It pumps up to 50psi and the pressure switch stops the pump, then when the water is used it senses when the pressure is at 40psi and starts the pump again. The water flows from the pump into a pressur...

Re: Turning a soft materiel

They ran the number of parts the union allowed, then sat idle until the end of the shift. Reminds me of the story my dad told of when he was an engineering student at Ohio State in the early '30s. He had a job winding motors and would hurry up and do his hour's allotment and spend the remainder of ...

Re: Because of all the knowledgeable folks here. :)

These were used at the Colorado School of Trades in the '70s, and I have used them off and on ever since. They do a marvelous engine turning decoration on stuff. Oh, yes, they are good a deburring threads, too. :lol: Brightboy kit 80-A.jpg Brightboy abrasive wheels.jpg Gift vise.jpg http://www.grobe...

Re: Bridgeport shaper attachment

To those of you who have asked the price, I have pm'd the owner's contact information. Trust me you won't be disappointed at the price, but that is for him to discuss with you. I don't mean to be rude or evasive, but it is not mine. I just said I'd post the availability. The shaper head is currently...

Re: Right angle indicator attachments

It's more of a comparative device than a measuring device. True, but when locating a part in a chuck, the idea is to get it centered as you know, not necessarily knowing the exact amount of runout. Admittedly the long probe will not give the same reading as a short one, but the deviation is what ma...

Re: Right angle indicator attachments

carlquib: Thank you for pointing out the use of a co-ax indicator for internal setup on a 4 jaw lathe. I had not ever considered it, but why not. As the instructions say, each graduation means .0005 off axis rotation. That is, it is reading +/- .0005 even though the dial moves from one mark to the n...

Re: Right angle indicator attachments

Perhaps a set like this Starrett 196A would help. But I see from the Starrett catalog one needs to buy the Back-Plunger Indicator then the Clamp #PT99437 with the Snug #PT18718 or Tool Post Holder #PT99438 with the Snug #PT18724 and the Hole Attachment #196F. If you are lucky like I was a flea marke...
