Re: A Method of Cutting Very Fine Screws,1790 (7p) AMAZING

For anyone interested in small thread pitches with high tpi numbers Jerry Kieffer who I'd rate as among the top 10 model engineers in the world did a fairly extensive and very good article in the HSM magazine around 1990 - 2000? about making your own taps and dies for extremely high thread count 150...

Re: installing quil on mill drill

For some reason your worm wheel is showing definite signs of bottoming out on the worm. That will cause binding as well. You need to investigate what's causing that. It's not impossible that area was relieved at the factory to provide clearance, but if not then you have a problem.

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Finally got a chance to watch Stefan's video Dave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJIdKqzWuDY I don't think I've ever failed to learn something and always be impressed with his skills & ability's in everyone of his videos. With the part tolerances he was working to and there size I think I'd scrap ...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Yep I'm the same and like gaining that knowledge as well and for the same reasons. Too bad that interest hadn't kicked in for me back in high school though. :-)

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Ok then that picture clarifies what your interested in, that looks a lot more rigid than what I'm using. Try page 875 in the MSC book and bottom of the page, the insert costs are the tough part, I'd think Stefan's Horn tip holder and inserts could be even more though. I mostly use my Nikcole as a sm...

Re: Milling Machine Power Feed

Yep for other than Bridgeport's or there clones where it's a simple bolt on your stuck with what I think are far too high prices for what they are on the RF type mills. If I was going to make one? I'd start here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2YGstZ5lrg and watch the full build series.

Re: CNC tolerances

Would waxing and then buffing the glass with something like automotive paste wax work? If it does it might be a lot more long term than the hair spray. I keep a can of it in the shop and it's got a lot more uses than one might think. A clear micro thin rust preventative is just one of them.

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

I haven't watched the video yet but yeah PHorn or just Horn cutting tools. German based I think and typical high end European tooling with a fairly high price to match. They've gone up a lot since I bought mine but if what Stefan was using are like what I have Nikcole mini systems (scroll to the bot...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Yeah I can imagine that numb feeling doesn't help judging your grip on anything small. With a bit of luck the nerves will grow back just fine. My right upper leg was numb for almost 3 years after some surgery. As I've said before Bill, the biggest secret to safely moving anything heavy is just good ...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

With surgery Bill you'll have nerves within that area that get cut. My surgeon told me that numb feeling is caused by those severed nerves. If my memory isn't faulty I think he mentioned those nerves grow back at approximately 1 mm per day. However it can happen sometimes that the nerve never comple...

Re: Heinrich 3TS cleanup advice needed

Google indicates that's there drill press vise? Depending on just how that vise was first assembled it may not be possible to drive the round rails out without breaking the end casting ears. Industry doesn't screw around and uses a lot of induction heating while heat shrinking parts in place. I'm no...
