Re: Looking for 4032

I did find a supplier on Alibaba that has a minimum order of 20 kilos (44 lb) plus whatever the shipping would be. It's bigger in diameter than what you need but you could ask if they have smaller diameters and even sell a smaller amount. Can't hurt to ask. You could probably sell on the excess to o...

Re: RF-45 oil seal replacement

There was a chap that was going through a rebuild of his, I think, Grizzly version a few years ago but he never did complete his thread on putting it back together. He did describe how he pulled it apart. Mine leaks a tiny amount from around the spindle. I put a cup under it to catch the little bit ...

Re: Fed up With Crummy Rotary Tools

Lots of people return tools after they use it some. If you feel it didn't meet the recommendations of a salesman or published specs then returning it is okay because it isn't fit for the job you were told it could do. If you bought it without researching thoroughly and you are disappointed then I fe...

Re: Turning plastic on a metal lathe

I think the reasoning for not turning wood on a metal lathe is because most woodwork is sanded to make it smooth. So the sanding dust would have been the reason for not doing it.
