Re: tab washers needed for restoration

To a bearing guy..... they are lockwashers! ;) Sure, and unlike the split ring kind they actually work. Still makes them hard to find, though. Bearing guys, speak there own language. No different than machinists, or welders.....whatever. I used to by 'em a couple at a time, and by the box....from.....

McMaster carries tab washers, but they don't look anything like the picture.

So I took a quick look. What McMaster calls tab washers, normal people call toothed lock washers, or star washers.
A lot of things like that are regional.

Re: tab washers needed for restoration

Most often called tab washers, or lock tab washers. As I recall, McMaster doesn't carry them.
I bought them & still buy them from bearing suppliers, like Motion Industries, Applied Industrial, etc.

Some auto parts stores carry them also.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Tie it down like any equipment is when it's hauled on an 18-wheeler. Straps on the front of the equipment are angled to the rear, and the ones on the rear, angled to the front. And they should be tight. That keeps stuff from moving or sliding on the bed of the trailer. Running tie downs, straps or c...

Re: LED Shop Lighting

When this conversation started, I took apart a T12 lamp, bypassed the ballast, inserted an LED bulb and it was really bright for about 2 nanoseconds. I put it all back together with the ballast and fluorescent tubes. Then I bought fixtures from Costco. Just my EI experience. --earlgo Maybe you had ...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Give it some time Bill. When nerves get wrecked, the do come back, slowly, and to varying degrees.
I have too much experience in that! ;)
The other thing that happens, is your brain will adjust to the changes, as well as how you have to do some things.

Re: LED Shop Lighting

On fluorescent to LED 4' & 8' tube replacements: All the LED's I have installed, have been ballast bypass. I removed the ballasts, and rewired the fixtures. I replaced all in my wife's business 4 years ago, and have replaced none. I've been replacing my shop lights as ballasts die. Two LED's are abo...

Re: AlphaTIG 200x

Agreed....what's with all the knobs? Hard to beat the ol' transformer machines. Simple, and oh so smooth. My newer Lincoln has 4 knobs. I set them after I bought it with a little playing around, and since, have only changed one. I suspect the same will be true with the AlphaTig....just more knobs to...

Re: Removing End Of Broken Pipe From Pressure Pot Manifold

Make some sort of bracket that clamps on to one or both of the handles, and the water trap.
Or even a bracket that mounts to the bolts holding the handles onto the pot.

You might use a schedule 80 pipe in lieu of a schedule 40. I doubt it would reduce the air flow enough to be noticeable.

Re: Removing End Of Broken Pipe From Pressure Pot Manifold

I see why it broke. A lot of weight hanging of that pipe.
