Re: OMG, Kamikaze bugs!

It may be different mud daubers mudding over each other's work.

They like the coolant drains on my tractors. They will also plug up small sockets.

Use high strength JB Weld to fill the old keyway.

Re: Cinti ToolMaster 1D variable speed pulley & motor shaft ?

With that much of the surface of the shaft gone the pulley might either ride cocked on the shaft or wobble.

Re: Cheap Saltpeter for Stumps

One nice thing about saltpeter is that it doesn't leave a huge stump just below ground level, the way grinding does. One could combine the two: grind the stump down, haggle a cavity into it, fill the cavity with potassium nitrate, and cover with dirt. Deals with the immediate unsightliness problem ...

Re: Suggested method of machinng

With 30 pieces to do it is certainly worthwhile to make jigs and/or fixtures. I'd want to turn round parts in a single setup and square them up last. With the right fixture you could do ten at a time. Perhaps address the tearing problem with sacrificial fixtures. Do you have a grinder?

Re: Magnetic chuck for Milling machine?

You'd need to box the part in the way you would if using glue or double-sided tape.
