Re: Breaking Small Drill Bits

Last week I too broke a little bit and it occurred to me that maybe the table was not perpendicular to the quill. I stuck a drill rod in the quill and with a little 6" electronic level saw that the Rockwell drill press (table top unit) was perfectly vertical but my table was 2 degrees tilted down to...

Re: 3d printing masks

One of my sons has a 3D printer and it has been running 24/7 making some kind of gizmo that allows fabric to be drawn through and then sewn into an edge material. Sewing is way to technical for me.

Re: Bad vibrations; is it in my head?

Did this happen all of a sudden or get progressively worse with time?

Re: Bad vibrations; is it in my head?

I cannot really tell, and this is most likely a foolish question, but are you hitting the material at the center line. Although it is probably an illusion, the first picture it looks to be low.

Re: propane question

Do you know what the BTU requirements will be? A gallon of propane weighs about 4.2 pounds and contains about 90,000 BTU's so a 1 pound cylinder contains roughly 21,000 BTU's.

The proper way to do this is to put a spacer in between the bearings, crank it as tight as you want and not hurt the bearings

Re: fixing go cart for next generation

How are you going to prevent wear on the sliding surface of the outer race vs the washer? ...not to mention galling of the rubbing surfaces and possible seizure. Excellent points, rather obvious once you spell it out. :) . Maybe there is just no hope for this design. Putting pressure against the tw...
