Re: marking tools

Buy HF tools and no-one will steal them. Or, buy a HF tool box and put good tools in it. Reminds me of the old advice about the safest place to store a violin is in a banjo case. As a retired violinist I must correct that statement. Use a viola case. ~RN Now, now. One of my music mentors was a viol...

Re: wheel pullers

I have stripped out the threads on two wheel pullers with acne threads and just picked up two others at an auction that have fine V threads. The new to me ones, with fine threads were made by the Owatonna Tool Company here in the US. I would have thought that the acne thread would be stronger but i...

Re: Need coupling bored and key way broached

I'm trying to swap a motor on my log splitter but I found that the new motor shaft is 1"and the old was 3/4" so the coupler to the pump won't fit. I've tried to find a new couple without success. The problem is that the key way is 3/16" and I am not coming up with that size in a 1" bore. The coupli...

Re: Web page and facebook

Well was raining all day so I tried my hand at setting up a website for our new train track we are about to start to install. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be to set up the website. https://greysonvalleyrr.com/ andhttps://www.facebook.com/Greysonvalleyrr-314832616081116 Kind of hard t...

Steve,

Those drills are probably #61 thru #80.

They are a continuation of the number drill set from #1 to #60 that you are probably familiar with.

Steve
#80 is 0.0135" diameter.

One more thing to think about. Spreadsheets have been used to spread viruses.
As I said in my post. The problem isn't just with Excel spreadsheets, it's any Microsoft Office file format.

Re: Backing up computer files

You don't need to clutter your desk with an external drive. Most PC's will let you install extra internal drives. Sorry, but that is bad advice. Agreed. In my business, backups are generated each day to high-capacity magnetic tape, with a separate tape used for each day of the week. My office used ...

All of our home computers have solid state "Hard Drives."

SSDs have their issues, although they are not mechanical ones. Temperatures matter for all electronic devices.
