Re: Materials Rack

That "too far down" problem exist with my stack. But my bigger problem is "loosing stuff". I've already been using some of the larger tubular steel to organize the smaller. Great until I need that large piece. But anyway, the problem I have is stuff of different lengths. If it's ...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

I figured that might be it, or a board glitch.

Sorry again. CA was meant to refer back to the cyanoacrylate discussion.

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

The damage around the hole is likely a result of my efforts to remove, not least of which was lighting a tungsten at 150A. But if you look close, there appears to be a very small bur/lip lifted, presumably from the ball removal. It really does act like it was peened in, but that would have had to be...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

Sort of, and not really. The hole itself appears to be rough drilled. The ball once extracted measured just under 0.188. I have a bunch of loose bearings, forget where they came from, maybe to replace a ball lost in either the rebuild of a super chuck, or possibly when cleaning and putting my Rubber...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

Me too. It would be underestimating to say I've got about 6 hours in getting that out, then finished in 5 minutes setup at the end, but I was beginning to think that was going to fail too. Took WAY more pulling power to extract than it should have.

Re: Set Myself on Fire Lolz

Wow, sounds like all the makings of a manually actuated Fuel Air Bomb. In my book, that would be much worse than just pouring on and lighting. I can't imagine anything but disaster ensuing, but I wonder if the reason it may have worked without catastrophe is that the fuel was soured 2 cycle and not ...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

Ok, looks like John gets the cegar... I tried CA a few more times, different prep, different dry times. It would pull it up to sort of stick before breaking off. Pushing back down you could feel substantial resistance from the CA wedging it up into the hole, but not through. At this point there is n...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

Oh well... Tried the CA twice. Both times it seemed quite well bonded. The second time, I first tried spinning the ball a bit to make sure everything didn't get glued together, and I could feel the ball easily turning, and feel it move up and down in the detent. But in both cases, tugging on it prod...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

Just getting started on it today. I don't think it's possible to cut around the ball to let it out. More likely to raise still more burs, and the 3/16 ball is proud of the hole in the inner sleeve at the bottom of a 5/16 hole, so not much to work with there. Steel might be a better choice, but I'm p...

Re: bridgeport handwheel clutch collar - ball stuck

That left hand drill would have been my next option, but it was broken at a bit of an angle, so would have needed bur work first. But it came out fairly easily with just a pick.

Re: Whetstones

I've got an entire drawer full of different stones, but none of ruby, sapphire, or jade. My favorites for small touchups are a little aluminum bars (maybe 1/4" x 3/8") with pads of different grit at each end maybe 1/8" thick with diamond media much like you find on carbide grinder whe...
