I have a 21" TV in the living room that hasn't been turned on in this century.

To a bearing guy.....they are lockwashers!

Find one here: https://www.skf.com/au/products/rolling ... uts/keyway

Then, you can search their site by part number, or better yet, call ‘em.
Wish they wouldn't call them "lock washers". It's descriptive, but that terminology makes them hard to find.

Re: LED Shop Lighting

When this conversation started, I took apart a T12 lamp, bypassed the ballast, inserted an LED bulb and it was really bright for about 2 nanoseconds. I put it all back together with the ballast and fluorescent tubes. Then I bought fixtures from Costco. Just my EI experience. --earlgo That lamp was ...

Re: Appropriate tip for Ball oilers?

I use a pump oil can with a rigid spout and a radius on the tip. I get a little dribble but not much. I've used a oil can with more of a chamfer and it was harder to get seated on the oiler. Same here. The tips on the spouts that work best seem to nearly fit into the hole. I suppose an optimum desi...

Re: LED Shop Lighting

Most of the heat produced in an LED lamp comes from the LED device itself deep inside the lamp. Therefor those devices are always the hottest points. The hotter those devices are the faster they wear out, so it's important to keep them cool. Unfortunately, it's also hard to get heat out of bulbs bec...

Re: Logan lathe

According to https://wiki.artisansasylum.com/index.p ... an_2557VLH the "L" means it has an L00 spindle.

That said, I get along fine with the threaded spindle on my Logan.

I might go $2000 for that lathe if I had it to spend.

Don't make them stronger, mount them on springs as is done on some passenger cars.

Re: junk

Truly, modern vehicles are amazing compared to the past... Don't worry. They've found a solution to that. "Biodegradeable" electrical insulation. Since they are now making the bodies out of plastic, you can expect them to start being "biodegradeable" as well. "Power train is fine but the car is tot...
