Re: Thin workholding suggestions

How dare someone sell you one like that :-)

Don't discount finding one on ebay. I've seen them for sale there.

You just need to match the hole size (or if it's larger, make a spacer).

Re: Toolbox drawer dividers

I was just drawing up some similar but sized to fit the drawer of my tool cart that sits by the mill. Figured I'd design them to slot together and maybe make them configurable. Then laser cut them. Ready made solutions are pretty cool when they work, though. Yea, that's why it makes sense to bring ...

Toolbox drawer dividers

Got some new wider toolboxes to replace a multitude of Kenendy 520's that had been proliferating like rabbits. Only issue is that the drawers in the new boxes are so wide (34") that things can just get pushed around all over the place. Was trying to figure what to do when I needed a fork and then it...

Re: WTB: Jaws for 8" Bison

I would get a set of soft jaws cheap from US Shop Tools and use those until you can find hard jaws. At least you will get some use out of the chuck. You might find that you like them so much that you forget about hard jaws. I picked up a couple of sets of hard jaws for my 6" chuck cheap on ebay, and...

It's a carbide seat that lends support to the insert and protects the tool holder from damage if the insert breaks under heavy load.
Cheaper to replace that part than the toolholder.

I have almost eliminated the "rattle" of cutting teeth completely off gears by mounting two carbide tools, one above the other, and spaced so that one is fully into the cut
Slick!

Re: Chuck mounting helper

I've seen homemade versions of this to pick the chuck up: https://skyhookmfr.com/images/products/accessories/chuck_hook_175x150.png Just need to get it clamped so that the ring is at the center of gravity. They even have them for your Kurt vise: https://skyhookmfr.com/images/products/accessories/vis...

Re: Shaper forum??

I did have the opportunity to visit the NEMES museum last fall and found it very interesting. I was there too. I asked one of the people there why the shaper even exists. He said that in the early days of machine tools, it was much easier to make a precision flat surface, like ways or dovetails, th...

The only thing you can't make with a shaper is money.
