Re: Amazing skill and talent -- blacksmithing

All that filing brought up memories of Middle school and High school shop classes. Cube, Hammer, Compasses, Joinery, Nutcracker, Pliers, Square, Straight Edge and a miniature Anvil 2" long The only thing that survived is the Anvil I still remember the awe felt when the teacher showed how to make the...

Re: Edwards 5 Radial Engine

I like to resurrect this old thread.
The Hoglet is almost finished and I am looking at the Edwards 5 drawings for the next project.
Sheet 5 The crankcase has 10 #6-32 Holes, 2 on each of the faces not occupied by a cylinder.
What are they for?
Would not oil leak out?

Re: Something good about Harbor Freight

I've never gotten anything but Chinese garbage there That may be true of your experience but can't be a general statement. I have gotten some garbage and a lot of exceptional value. One example are my two angle grinders 4.5" and 7" I do not have the space for a power saw so I cut all my stock with ...

Re: Storing End Mills

ice trays for water bottles

Re: Setting the compound at 0* or 30*

Since I have acquired a test dial indicator that reads 0.0005" I have come to appreciate elasticity and the fact that Young modulus is not infinite has it appears to from daily experience. Finger pressure onto beefy structures result in appreciable deflection. Every piece of the machine that appear ...

Re: Setting the compound at 0* or 30*

Look at your tool overhang in relation to the center line of the cross feed slide. Glenn, i suppose you are referring to RSG picture and the CCW torque on the compound slide resulting from cutting forces. You imply the compound slide should be backed off to bring the tool tip close to the compound ...

Re: Annoying Movie Welding

What bugs me the most in advertising is gears. Gears with square or trapezoidal teeth, gear next to each other with different modulus. As we are on the subject...

Re: Wavy Parallels. What are they good for?

I find then useful when measuring things on the granite table.
What about the waviness that makes them useful on the granite block as opposite to regular parallels?
