Re: WTB 7ba tap and die.

Ok sir went out and found my taps. I have bought from both the BF in England and their subsidiary here I got a set of 2BA from both places. I got two different manufactures so I looked them up one is Volkel and the other is Totem. The Totem are made in India but are HSS not the carbon steel. The Vol...

Re: WTB 7ba tap and die.

Very interesting as I have recently had need for a 7BA tap and used British fasteners got the cheaper one and am very satisfied with their service. it seems even as BA stuff goes the 7BA screws etc are kind of obscure. Curious as to what you need them for? My purpose was for making darts that will a...

I think this is one of the problems with rescue animals and puppy mill operations you can never be sure of the health problems. I for one have to commend you for being responsible and stepping up to your commitment.

Re: ATTN: HAROLD - you need this!

there were a few different models of the 40 crawler MC40, 40C, 420C, and 430C. I actually have 2 of the 40C machines one a part machine and the other running but needs a little TLC and the right steering clutches need adjustment or replacing most likely replacing. I used it for primarily snow remova...

Re: Live and learn

Re: Live and learn

this is where I have a catch 22 . I have no vise to hold the t-nuts if I get a vise I don't have a way to hold it down. I suppose I could buy a couple T-nuts and studs and carefully grind them down on the bench grinder to use long enough to mill a few factory nuts to size or is this not a good idea?

Live and learn

Well I pulled a newbe bone headed buy the other day I wanted to start tooling up my G0758 mill/drill. The first two items on my list were an R8 collet set and clamping set.

Re: G0758 has arrived

I definitely see a trend here and on a different forum collets vs holders, so collets it is. I plan on getting my feet wet with smaller projects that don't require as much tooling for instance I have a QCTP(A2Z) for my 7X14 lathe and plan on making some tool holders which look pretty straight forwar...
