Re: How to increase tightness between splined pieces?

If the spline is made to a standard ,anyone's made to the sane standard should work. But, I think I would buy from Borgeson to be sure. And when you weld the 2 pieces together also cross pin the joint or rosette weld also from the side to make a mechanical joint as well as the weld. Belts and braces...

Re: How to increase tightness between splined pieces?

If once assembled there is no slip movement required one of the Loc-tite products may answer. Like the Green sleeve and bearing retainer compound.

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

I personally hate wearing a mask for several reasons not the least for foggy glasses. But, I feel is my personal responsibility to help protect my fellow man. For the common good Ya know ! Over rides my personal desires and feelings. OK I'm done ,that's my view point ,do as your conscious dictates.

As the TV lawyers would say:
"If your glasses are fogging up while you are wearing a mask, you may be entitled to condensation".

Cutting oil holder

A friend of mine who I guess is more of a klutz than me,gave me a holder that fits the T slots on the mill. Now I use the "Spill Master" oil cups but still you knock one off on to the floor they do splash out some. Anyway a PVC cap and a bit of scrap and presto something much harder to knock off and...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

Whateg0 : If you let out unfiltered air for all the good the mask does might as well not wear one !! The point of everyone at least wearing some form of face covering is to prevent escape of droplets that may be carrying the COVID virus thus protecting others. You need a N95 or better to protect you...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

And if the air does NOT go through the mask it does NOT catch the droplets/virus etc. Around here masks with exhaust valves are not considered legal where masks are required.

Re: Enco Lathe - Extended gib and tail stock clamp

I had a look at the compound gib on my 12X36 Accra -turn {Chinese] and it also uses 2 screws to adjust and lock the gib. The gib also protrudes a small amount at that end [adjustment lock screw] , I have owned that lathe since new [15 years] and have only adjusted gib maybe twice in that period. Don...

Re: Enco Lathe - Extended gib and tail stock clamp

Gib : How far is in on the other end? I see you have a lock screw on the back end going by your picture ,that is a good feature . If the gib adjuster screw on the handle end is bottomed out that tells me the big is worn . If so a simple fix is a shim behind the gib on the non moving side. I usually ...

The few times I have seen a makers recommendation for engine oil use it has always been for Non-detergent oils ,usually about 20WT.

Re: Lubrication For Lathe Headstock

I use engine oil in my my lathe headstock.. Bad idea if you are using detergent oil !! That is made to suspend wear particials until engine oil filter can remove. Non-detergent would be OK . I use tractor hydraulic fluid which has anti foaming and wear properties ,also good for most other lube poin...
