Re: Gluing brass to aluminum

Wanted to add one more thing, like HaroldV said if he can substitute a steel sheet then he can solder the shell casings
it's a matter of painting the steel sheet to look like aluminum.

Re: Gluing brass to aluminum

Props ( not propeller ) is my specialty, since that's what I do for a living. Couple of questions followed by my comments - How thick is the aluminum ? Thin sheets especially if they're large are subject to flex, epoxies and super glues are hard when cured so they'll pop off regardless of surface pr...

Re: Periscope films

Yes they may own the medium on which the documentary is displayed. That, however, doesn't mean they own the copyright. Unless Shell transferred the copyright to Periscope, the latter doesn't have any legal rights to the film. In fact, if Shell's copyright still exists on the original they could sue...

Re: Periscope films

I agree, the time code ( which is what it's called ) is annoying, but the film I linked is from Shell Oil, they probably paid for them so Periscope films is the rightful owner. I'm not sure how Periscope Films worked out the rights for Gov't films, but it's good that at least someone is making them ...

I can't even fathom how big the machine is.

Re: First machine tool, need a bit of help identifying and advice on restoration steps

Did we decide yours is a Maximat V10? If so, I have PDFs of the owners manual and parts breakdown. Email me from my profile. Rex, What the OP has is Maximat Standard, they're the models Emco made before their numbered Maximat series. If the OP is still following this thread I have a PDF manual for ...

Re: Opeing Evaporust 5 gallon pail

What everyone said before, I deal with 5 gal plastic pails all the time, some are harder to open than others. What I do if I can't find my lid opener is to lay the heel of both my palms on the lid ,fingers facing outward and grab the tabs created from cutting the slots and pry up using the heel of m...

Re: A cover for a vertical milling machine?

You can give Boeshield T-9 anti rust/anti corrosion spray a try, since you removed the cosmoline. McMaster sells Boeshield. I would have left the cosmoline on till you moved it to it's final destination. You don't have a location in your forum stats, so I'm not sure if your area has wild temp swings...

Re: First machine tool, need a bit of help identifying and advice on restoration steps

Solvents and Degreasers - I picked up a bottle of Zep Industrial Purple Degreaser as well, I'd be curious to hear your guys thoughts about areas I can and can't use it on. The previous owner seems to have had a mishap with the top of the screw-cutting gearbox, it looks like it was broken in about 3...
