Harold: Thanks!
You're quite welcome. And thanks for the report of the problem, which brought it to our attention. Mike has made the required adjustment, so the board should now accept your pictures.

Re: Stretch Husky in a weekend

Harold - I want to make sure that I didn't come across the wrong way - I really appreciate your comments on this and other threads. Not at all! I'm a great deal like you, and take on numerous projects that are beyond my pay grade. I don't always get the best results, but only because I lack the pro...

Re: Did I miss a notice?

Yup, I've had that problem twice. Both times I posted pics that were reduced in size so they were not over the limit. They showed when I did a preview but only one remained when I posted. I just figured it was a software issue and I didn't worry about it. Dave C. Interestingly, the problem doesn't ...

Re: Stretch Husky in a weekend

I plugged in my $30 garage sale stick welder and attempted to weld for the first time in my life. This is definitely one of the most frustrating things that I have ever done. I took a night time welding class for two years. I do not consider myself a weldor. It is a rather demanding craft, requirin...

Re: Did I miss a notice?

One thing to consider is the size of each photo. There's a limit on how large they can be (I'm talking about the file size, not the pixel size), so if you've exceeded the limit, that may explain why only one shows. If you didn't exceed the limit, who knows! Computers have a way of doing strange thin...

Re: Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

External grinding hard chrome on 3 1/4" dia. x 30" long tubing. Ahhh! That's very different. Aside from grinding a set of hard chromed rolls for a rolling mill (about 12" long), I have little experience in grinding chrome. Tubing makes it all the more difficult. Huge coolant flow to keep it from mo...

Re: Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

The wheel grinds good after dress, (as far as surface finish) then gets real good, then starts to slowly go away. Interesting. I wonder if you grind the same way I was taught? Just like in surface grinding, where you can take a large step-over but shallow depth of cut, repeating until depth is achi...

Re: Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

Wheel , I served my apprenticeship as a grinder ( trainee) and we spun the wheel no matter what size the grinder ( ^ 24") Chuckle! I dare say you were never assigned to a centerless grinder, then. Good luck with spinning the wheel by hand on one with a Filmatic bearing. IF" someone leaves coolant r...

Re: Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

Don't mount wheels without blotters. Harold, When you say blotter do you mean a cardboard washer between the arbor washers ? Jim Yes, as there should be something present to distribute clamping pressure without point loading the wheel. Modern manufacturing procedures have, for the most part, create...

Re: R8 collet cleaning

....no way I'll use gasoline. It's not worth it. Agreed! The use of gasoline except for its intended purpose (as fuel) isn't the wisest thing a guy can do, and for the reasons you've so well mentioned. In regards to cleaning a collet, yeah, degreasing is a great idea, as is the cleaning of the draw...
