Re: ISO 2ba taps

I was involved with darts twenty years or so ago, but was not involved with machining at the time. I just thought it would be a fun project. The fanatics want certain weights, lengths knurling at certain spots on and on besides making them from titanium, tungsten, brass etc. On top of it there are s...

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

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?
