Re: North Carolina made power draw bar for bridgeport

I'm going to bump this and see if we get any response.

Anyone have any experience with these power draw bars?

Photo Prints on Laser Printer

I have a Brother color laser printer. We want to print some photos on it. Our local Staples has photo printing paper, but it all says it is for inkjet printers. The clerk told my wife that if we don't use photo paper made for laser printers, that it could damage the printer. I'm skeptical, but certa...

Re: New 2019 Pricing! & Changes

Do you have any of the 5' kits in stock? What is the price on those, or going to be on those? If that I s what we want, should we put our name on a list?
Thanks,
Herman

Re: 1" Scale Bobber kit ****ALL SOLD****

I hadn't previously looked at the link with pictures of the kit and instructions, because this is not a scale I am working in. I just did today, and they are impressive. This is a fantastic kit, looks relatively easy to build, clear instructions and a solid-appearing design. When those who bought th...

Re: Quality Pegboard Hooks

That bench looks solid. What store or chain carried it? Probably not available in Canada, but I can look.

Re: How do I make this?

If you want to make them as shown in your last drawing post, this youtube video shows a really easy way to quickly and accurately round those over with a standard endmill.

Re: Insulating fluid for connections?

For that very reason, a lot of the boats, both commercial and pleasure, around here have a dedicated battery wrench. A half inch wrench with the handle entirely wrapped in electrical tape. And my insurer required that my batteries have covered boxes so no other wrench would drop on them when doing o...

Re: Building the Frisco 1522

If the freedom of movement to accommodate the change in wheel spacing as the wheels move up and down with track fluctuations is not found in the journal box-frame clearance, where is it created?

Re: Unknown drill chuck

In the comments on the video, that question is asked and answered. It is a Wahlstrom chuck. They are pretty expensive, but occasionally go for reasonable dollars on eBay. I watched that same video, had the same question, and followed up on it.

Allen Models Consolidation drivers are 6-3/8 inch, and only $50.00 each. They might work.

Re: Thread ending positon

When I needed to do this on a boiler gauge glass fitting, I used the red fibre washers. You can sand them thinner with finger pressure on sandpaper on any flat thickness. Sand a bit, then check, and repeat. Trial and error gets you into the range, and because they have some compressability, they sea...
