Re: FOR SALE VFD (variable frequency drive)

Bill: Depends on the quality of the drive. The "cheap" drives yes. A friend of mine does this with his shop...turn on the drive when he walks in the door, then turns on the BP with the For/Rev switch. Same with the lathe. Only once was the smoke and parts let out of the VFD...direct lightning strike...

Re: Machining Rubber

I froze it to 50 deg below, but then we had a freezer that would do that. Sometimes I had to use dry ice to freeze it.

Re: HGR industrial surplus. Euclid Ohio

I think the extra that they charge is to pay for their shipping dept. I have bought a plasma cutter from them and the actual UPS charge was $38 but they charged me $150 for shipping.

Re: Something good about Harbor Freight

My wife never loses tools, I do. She "borrows" them from the shop and then puts them back into her toolbox in the house! I will buy the HF tools and leave them in strategic places just for her.
