Re: At last, a faceplate

Or a new spine. ;)

I have a back like that too, only the scrap is worth necks to nothing. :)

Re: grizzly gunsmith lathe tail stock won't lock tight.

This is what the G4003G manual says about torquing the tailstock. "Optional: To precisely secure the tailstock, mount a 1⁄2" drive torque wrench in the square drive shown in Figure 34, then tighten the tailstock to 40 lbs/ft of torque. The center point will be drawn down as much as 0.006". Do not ex...

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

This is my favourite disposable mask, generally good for about a week of work in all but the dustiest use. I used it in public but taped over the valve to protect others the back pressure isn't strong enough to break the seal although I never tried to run any marathons with it. It isn't cheap and I ...

Re: Emptying Sandblaster

Take the bag off the gun. Attach a short hose to the gun and attach the other end to a fitting on the lid of the bucket. Attach the bag to a second fitting on the lid of the bucket. The dust sucked up goes thru the gun, down the hose into the bucket with the filter keeping the fines from blowing out...

Re: Emptying Sandblaster

The gun bag would be your filter. The air flows through it when used normally. If it wasn't permeable there would be no suction. So you have gun, hose to bucket, bag out of bucket. Your overthinking things. ;)

Re: Emptying Sandblaster

The hose goes from the Venturi to the lidded bucket and on a second hole in the lid you attach a filter, the one it comes with the air vac should do, to keep the media dust from filling the shop. If you are outside and don't care if you loose some of the media then you don't need the filter. Does th...

Re: Emptying Sandblaster

<r>Air powered vacuum would work. It uses shop air and a Venturi to make the suction. You can make them or buy cheap to very expensive. The hose into a 5 gallon pail with a filter on a second hole in the lid should capture the media without having it go everywhere. They don't have a ton of suction b...

Re: Brown and Sharp Micrometer

I believe you have to remove the end cap on the thimble to get it off the spindle with a little C wrench that fits the hole. Then you turn the spindle with you fingertips until the faces touch. Now you slip the thimble back on with the line aligned for zero. Then the end cap is carefully tightened t...
