Thanks guys. The link to Federal was helpful, I'll give them a call. I have been spot checking Ebay, maybe I'll set up a search with an auto email when a matching listing shows up. Thanks again, Bill

Oliver Die Filer

I recently finished refurbishing an old Oliver Die Filer that I picked up some time ago. Does anybody know of a source of files for this machine? I have spot checked Ebay, looked on-line, and checked MSC without finding anything. Are the files for these called something other than "die files". Thank...

It has been years since I worked at a place that did this kind of work, but they had a bunch of these little machines that you set a 1000' spool of wire on, dialed in the lengt...

Might be a bit far for you, but there is HGR Industrial Surplus and McKean in the Cleveland, Ohio area. About 6 to 7 hour drive from Indianapolis. Both places have web sites. I have bought lots of stuff from both places and have always been happy. I would suggest that you visit in person rather than...

Steve, I am a bit of an F1 (actually all racing) fan myself. The teams are not willing to share much info with anyone outside, even though they have moved on to V8's for this year (at least most of the teams, still a few restricted V10's on the low budget teams). There have been a few SAE papers pub...

Steve,

Nice job on the machine and the parts you make with it. Do you make the guns for your own models, or do you sell models / parts?

Sometime back I built a logsplitter as an attachment to my Bobcat skidsteer loader and use the aux hydraulics from the Bobcat. I built it so that it slides on to the forks of the forklift attachment (also a do it yourselve project) and can be used either horizontally or vertically. When used in the ...

Harold, Are these shipping containers, like used on cargo ships? Can you give me an idea of what the range of cost is for these and where you find them for sale? Also, I assume that when you buy these you need to have a trucking company to haul them to your place (empty) and have a crane to unload t...
