Re: Dressing a diamond grinding wheel

If you could conjure up a picture it would help. I am not at all familiar with that type of dresser. Many thanks in advance.

Re: Need a way to turn a 30 tpi screw.

JackF; Thanks for letting me practice on your 30tpi screws. I had occasion to make another 30tpi for a Lyman 310 Tong Tool expander die. I didn't have to search for how to do it because of your request. Oddly this one was a .400x30-2A. Glad I don't have to make the nut.
Regards,

Re: Dressing a diamond grinding wheel

Since I have a Delta Toolmaker grinder, the wheel adapters are very hard to find. Delta chose to use a different taper than the 'normal' grinders, and spins the wheel CCW so the nut is RH and not LH. I have only 2 adapters: 1 that came with the grinder and 1 purchased from SOPKO in 1989 or so for $8...

Re: Dressing a diamond grinding wheel

Well DUH. I was walking the dog and it occurred to me that I should just make a centered spindle arbor to mount the wheel and adapter on and then I can turn it with the lathe at slow speeds and get the dressing done that way. I was stuck on using the grinder. Oh well, I do have "oldtimers" disease. ...

Dressing a diamond grinding wheel

I may have asked this question before, but I have failed to remember the answer. How do I dress a diamond grinding wheel on a grinder that has no capability to slow the wheel speed down? I have read that if the wheel is turning slowly(?) it can be dressed. From experience I know that using a dressin...

Re: Monarch lathe

The ATLAS 12" lathe will also engage both lead-screw and cross-feeds at the same time, but I have never tried it. Might be fun to see the flinders fly. :shock:

Re: A good simple finish for aluminum

Birchwood Casey made a product called Aluminum Black for the touchup of Aluminum. It is POISON containing tellurium dioxide, fluoroboric acid, nickel sulfate and copper sulfate. But it works and leaves a black finish. I never tried to use it on a large surface, it is mostly used for touching up scra...

Re: Tesla cars

If it is a Detroit Electric then the restorers at the Crawford Auto Museum put on the wrong running board.

Re: Tesla cars

In the Cleveland area there are a lot of Tesla and Prius cars on the roads; not so many Volts, that I have seen. You folks in the upper west probably have more 'eco-friendly' cars than the rest of us will ever see. My son who lives in Redmond, WA has 2 Nissan Leafs and think they are just great. I d...
