Re: To Goat or not to Goat?

My wife has had a small heard of sheep for many years. A couple of years ago she decided goats would be nice also. They are the bane of my existence. As said they respect no fence, they climb, and they don't taste good. A sheep is as good a brush hog as a goat. Goat feed will kill a sheep. Both will...

Kinda goes along with my saying, "I can't afford cheap tools.". Going with a name brand from a good tool supplier is best in my book. I go with MSC.

Re: Drilling to depth?

Another possibility is to bring the quill to the stop, raise the table to give zero clearance between the part and the drill bit, then put a spacer equal to the hole depth under the part to be drilled. Or a combination of the above and a spacer for the deeper holes.

Re: Thread ending positon

To do this with precision you can figure the the cut to make. If you have a 32 pitch thread divide 1/32 and this will give you the the movement one turn will give you. 1/32=.03125.. if you divide this by 360 degrees you will have distance per degree. .03125/360= .00009 in/degree. Once you get how ma...

Re: Drilling to depth?

I am preparing to build a Von Broklin pump and it involves drilling a LOT of #50 holes to specific depths, more accurate than I trust the built-in depth stop for. Is there and easy way to know the depth accurately (without installing a DRO) or is using a collar on the bit the best way? What machine...

Re: Finally Got to Shoot on my Own Land

We have land rented to a Christmas tree farmer. He was asking me who was shooting into the trees? No one that I knew but he did explain that lead can kill a tree and to put the word out not to be shooting trees. So take care in shooting into the woods.

This is a picture of the gooseneck tool holder that popped into mind. It lets the cutter deflect under heavy load.

Re: Machine Tools Should be Floppy

, but the very idea that a machine tool is intentionally made "floppy" is absurd, as is the notion that an extremely rigid machine is subject to breakage. H While I totally agree with your post the image that popped into my mind is the gooseneck tool holder. Just something invented to get...

Re: Five Minutes to Warm up a Tractor???

You can get a bit of an indication from the color of the exhaust and the 'smoothness' of the idle. Cold thick fuel does not atomize well so a bit of a warm up is advised. If you have been running the tractor then a warm up is not necessary.
