Re: New toy at work

Nice! I'm jealous, both the machine and the space.

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.

Or call Mike. He has a lot of items that are not in the catalog yet, especially diesel detail parts.

Re: One man's insanity---the story of an induction furnace

We used phenolic for the insulators. Most of our furnace parts were made of aluminum, but parts still get hot.
I gave Liz a hug for you. Give Susan our best.

We are hoping to make Train Mountain this year, but see my PM

"Remember, on the furnace, NO COMPLETE CIRCUITS anywhere." This also includes jewelry, no rings, no necklaces, no bling! If you forget the wedding ring around the furnace, I will guarantee that you will not be able to find water fast enough!
