Re: Parallel Keeper

I use the banding too for smaller gaps (and sometimes larger). And flat brake drum separator springs are usually used for larger (down to near full compress), with spacers to provide more width. The spacers are generally "shop made parallels" I started making a long time ago from short remnants. Mos...

Re: Hardening Top of Railroad Track Anvil?

Or hard face? I seem to recall reading where someone used that to provide a hard top for a RR anvil that wasn't deemed hard enough once completed.

Re: Exhaust flange and gasket problems.

All I can say with 100% certainty is that is the way it came to me installed on my new base rig. But it looked pretty Banks original with very little mileage on the vehicle, so I'm pretty certain it's Banks original. And I agree with flat gasket not being a problem. My beef is that they used somethi...

Re: Exhaust flange and gasket problems.

I think I know more of what's going on, and why there seems to be no gasket. When I was looking at the flanges I found while trying to figure out what industry might provide a gasket, on one of the clearer images, it appeared to be beveled in the ID. That made me wonder if maybe it wasn't actually a...

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

Good choice on the knives. Many of mine belonged to my mother's parents. They came to me in a similar manner, along with her cast iron. Some from my father's parents. Others picked up along the way. My father was a butcher as well, so I learned an appreciation for knives and their care long ago. Onc...

Re: Engineers really know their stuff

Agreed. But in this case it's not uncommon for a motor mount to attach to the block in what would be inside the belt loop or some such. So unless you're inclined to cut and restitch a timing belt like a SB lathe, you have to support the motor to remove the mount. That type of thing is so common they...

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

Cleaning cast iron, even scrambled eggs, is easy with something like this. Completely eliminated the main reason I was reluctant to use my cast iron. As for knives, I took a quick google search for some examples and found what except for a couple of odd-balls could be my knives on this blog page. In...

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

True. And it's NOT great any time if my wife gets ahold of it. She's currently forbidden from using my cast iron. She's got a bunch of those green/copper/ceramic/whatever's that last a year or so before beginning to be worse than non-non-stick. I've no use for those. When I fix breakfast, it's alway...

Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

I've never had that problem. But the handle of my skillets were cast along with the rest of the pan over 60 years ago. Added bonus, can be used as a bludgeoning weapon, and provides a good forearm workout in use.

Re: Engineers really know their stuff

That's not really too excessive for modern front drive transverse engines. The only thing in your description that's fairly uncommon is "remove the suspension", though I expect that just means disconnecting upper strut mount. Most of them are going to have a similar process. You could always get a c...

Re: Softjaw question

How do the Diatest bore gauges get around the fact that the typical soft jaw setup present jaws @ 120° intervals, thus not always offering a direct reading? Do they not require 180° opposed surfaces in order for proper measurements to be achieved? I was also lucky enough to find 2 sets (ranges) of ...
