Re: CNC Router for Aluminum Machining?

Doesn't K. Fenner have one, or something similar? Having a CNC mill, think I'd rather entertain a 3D printer.

Re: TIG Welder - Everlast

what should I look out for when shopping for an argon tank? There is an empty 10 cf tank nearby for $40. How much welding would that support and about how much to fill? I know that could be quite variable so just interested in the ballpark. There are also full tanks around 100 cf and a 4 hour round-...

Re: Backlash on a CNC mill

I think the code can deal with it the same way as conventional milling. There is also a backlash setting that is applied when changing directions. There are zero backlash screws. My old bridgeport is supposed to have one on the Z-axis, but I am not sure about X-Y. I don't remember now if I have back...

Re: Any Creative Fabicators?

It somewhat dried around the edges and exposed areas. The area in the center is probably sealed from air by the saran wrap and is still totally uncured. They say to wet a surface for faster cure. It is supposed to set under water. I'm tempted to rip it all off, but opted to attack it with a needle a...

Re: Any Creative Fabicators?

The Fuze It did not cure hard overnight. I don't know if it will - it's like silly putty now. I thought I'd sand down the saran wrap and apply another thin coat to glue a layer of leather or rubber. We'll see if a day in the shady sun sets it up, or it'll be plan Bondo, after some torture trying to ...

Re: Any Creative Fabicators?

Harold, it is unfathomable to me that my 50+ year old retail boat + trailer would be considered in the context that you state. I will acknowledge that the designs and mfg of past is far superior than what we have today. I am thrilled to have such old-school American tradition here, and would love to...

Re: Any Creative Fabicators?

I'd need something to tow it with. My little Camry will, but I was looking under the back at towing options. Not much there to bolt to and I bet the factory or aftermarket, if one exists, tow kit is not cheap. I was looking at complete boat trailer package for $1500. I have a trailer I could dig out...

Re: MIG Pulsing issue

Not buying replacements seems cheap, but I like frugal. I'll whip some up on my lathe :D
