Re: How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

Thanks for all the suggestions. If the screw comes out again, I think I'll go with earlgo's idea.

How to Lock Screw in Skillet Handle?

After doing without nonstick pans for quite a while, I bought myself a new one. Problem: the machine screw that holds the handle on keeps coming loose, which is irritating. I put red Loctite on it, but I have my doubts about it. The area where the screw is will get pretty warm, so I'm afraid the scr...

Re: steamin10 (Big Dave)

Where are the young machinists who should be rising up to replace the old? They must be playing with 3D printers and drones. I hope the hobby prospers.

Re: Is there a Civil Engineer in the house?

The urge to "correct" people on the Internet is an amazing thing. I shouldn't take the bait, but the "mob" is, in fact, part of the Mafia, as various sites will tell you, and it is also referred to as "the Outfit." I feel like I'm doing standup in front of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. I can't remembe...

When an axe head with most of the hardened part ground off brings $75 on Ebay, anything is possible.

Re: Brand new old school south Bend 10” lathe!

I think the price is crazy. It may be in great shape, but it's still a flimsy, small old lathe with a low top speed and limited tooling. For a little more than half of $11,000, you can have a 14" Taiwan lathe with variable speed, a DRO, and a warranty, and it will cut over 60 threads right out of th...
