Re: Note on Jacobs chucks

Danaher gutted Jacobs like they have every other brand they bought. Whether customer service, parts, or new chucks, best just to forget about anything other than NOS pre-Danaher chucks and parts. From what I've seen and heard, nothing remotely new has any value at all.

Re: To Goat or not to Goat?

Fair comment JH. I don't follow and try to sort the details of who's pushing what on such topics, but thought that the loss of patent protection was more recent and coincided with the apparent uptick in gnashing of teeth. And in support, it seems I'm only recently (in the last few years) seeing a re...

Re: To Goat or not to Goat?

On the roundup topic, I don't put much stock in that. Mainly because while Roundup was under patent protection, it was lauded as being about as safe as water for anything other than leafy plants. The minute the patent expired and others entered the market, now we hear all about the risks of using ro...

Re: Sliding Fit

I bought the green HF 4x6 back around 2002 or so when I started what ultimately became my rock crawler buggy. I built a simple frame to eliminate the flimsy sheet metal leg-ish objects it came with, and get it up at a better working height. I adjusted it as indicated in the manual (with some interpr...

Re: Welding on apickup frame

As I noted earlier, I've heard both ways. I think the idea behind disconnecting the battery is that with the system "live" under power, it is more sensitive to transient currents which if additive exceeds the limits and blows diodes, or even caps that may not be so sturdy. I also have been...

Re: Welding on apickup frame

You are correct about the ground. You want a clean stable ground using a good clamp as close to where you are welding as possible. I've heard both ways on the battery deal, but almost always disconnect just to be sure. The main thing that you want is to KNOW where the least resistance to current pat...

Re: What are these?

That would be my thought as well. Also looks like it mounts to side lug that would normally hold the work rest on the circumference, though this would mount for side wheel grinding. But with no way to feed, not sure how that would work with the clamps. Unless maybe they are there just to provide a s...

Re: New toy er Tool

I thought we looked at mine when you were up here? In any case, I have one like it, and absolutely love it. Like you say, wouldn't want to be without it. Not ideal for drills on the smaller end of it's range as it get's more fiddly to setup and has to be dead on to get a good grind, but for all exce...

Re: individual drill bit

There is a common suggestion that makes the forum rounds on this question. Basically, buy a big full set (typically 135 pieces) of common drills from a source that meets your basic quality/budget goals. For many, that means a HF 135 piece gold tinted (box says TIN coated, <snort>). Used to be you co...

Re: MIG or TIG for car bodywork restoration?

Depends on what you are welding with. Common ER70S-6 MIG wire can get quite hard. When hammer working MIG welds, I've used a gas welding torch to heat and anneal them. It's the rapid speed, higher carbon content wire, and subsequent rapid quench due to the surround metal and limited HAZ that can res...
