Re: weird RR machine

That drive system is exactly how 95% of all self-propelled walk-behind snowblowers work.

Re: New to me furnace and new problems.

I own a Pyramid #10, very cool to hear of someone else owning one, I think they are relatively rare these days.

What size crucible are you using in your model #8?

Mine came with a very used #6 crucible which I use for aluminum and I just purchased a new #5 which will be for bronze only.

Re: Free and easy to learn 3D CAD

I really enjoy using Fusion 360 and I picked it up fairly quickly without any prior 3D CAD experience, just learned by drawing things and watching Youtube tutorials. Its free for hobbyist and small business that make less that $100k annually.

Re: Sherline4400 G-coding

Hello, I see this is your first post here; first of all welcome to the forums. Unfortunately its very hard to know where the files may have gone, would it be possible for the person who produced the G-code to re-send the files to you? They most likely still have them saved on their computer. I would...

Re: Coles Models Holt 75 engine model

I am also very interested in a set of drawings for the Holt engine.

Coles was sold and is now defunct, I spoke with the current owner about two years ago and he told me that he would sell the entire business for $100k.

Re: Dubious Restoration

But it has one virtue that brought it into my workspace; I could afford to buy it... Of course I'd prefer an undamaged, accurate, heavy duty, high quality machine; but that is not going to happen for me. BINGO. There are guys out there that make beautiful parts with ancient clapped out machines wit...

Re: Show us your milling machine!

I don't use DRO's, but the way I operate milling machines, having one on the quill doesn't make as much sense as one on the knee. I generally lock the quill and use the knee to deepen the cut, as that's how I have the most control. If I'm drilling and need to control depth, I have a quick stop that...

Re: Show us your milling machine!

Well, I wasn't going to post a picture of my mill as it looks like junk compared to some of the restored beauty's in this thread but I figured if after 3+ years and 18 pages of posts I didn't see one Lagun I should put it in here. It's not pretty but it works really, really well. Surprised there ar...
