Hi There.

Apparently one has to be a member and login in order to
view the add. Not being a member (and not looking to

Re: PB Blaster is Snake Oil

Hi There, Living near salt water, I been using anti-seize on fasteners for a long time. The most problematic are exhaust fittings and I've lately switched to a high temp anti-seize (infused with Nickel). It is supposed to be good to 2600°F and so far has worked on the exhaust manifold stud/nuts on m...

Hi There,

The Coke trick sounds like the tip I've

The only advantage of air tools over electrics is power density. They are losing that edge as motors get better.

Hi There, I own a couple lathes and I have AXA on my 11" Logan and it is the right size for it. My 12" Clausing came with an AXA tool post but it needed a 1/2" spacer plate under it to get it up high enough to work. I replaced it with a BXA I had and that works fine (without spacer).

Re: What is a good rust preventative for machine storage.

Hi There,
