Re: Milling a helix

I'm looking forward to seeing this set up in action! Extremely clever! As far as fixtures, I find that designing & making all the jigs and fixtures to build something, more fun than actually building the parts. Sure....the first one, or few is fun, but after that, making more & more is booooooorrrrr...

Re: MIG Pulsing issue

As others said: Good & correct size contact tip. Good ground....preferably connected directly to the work. Roll of wire isn't hanging up, or backlashing. Drive rollers in the correct groove, and proper tension. Too much tension can mess things up too. A worn out liner in the gun. I just changed one ...

Re: How to Steady Small Parts on Workbench?

I really like pegboard. Where do you get hangers? The ones I have fall out every time I take down a tool. I get mine at the ranch store, and both Ace & True Value stores. Check your local hardware store. Make sure you get 9/32" diameter pegs. They fit tight, assuming you have common pegboard, which...

You'll like the pegboard more when you put some pegs in it!

Re: Anyone Familiar with Grace Brand Picks and Hooks?

I got my pick collection from my dentist.. The picks reach a stage where the office replaced them, but what I got all are perfect for my use! Free too. ~RN Yup! Me too! I have some real store bought ones, including some brass ones. Don't use any of them often. The old dental pickers....all the time...

Re: Installing Bearing on Dremel Shaft

I have a Proto, and various different tips to fit it.

Hope I’m not excommunicated for not having a ‘designer brand’.

Forgot to add...on the cross drilled hole, not sure what it's for, besides the spindle lock.

Re: Installing Bearing on Dremel Shaft

Horror Freight sells 'e. for $6.99! ;) I have a 395. Only 2 bearings, per the parts list. On the front, I'm guessing that the front shaft presses into the armature shaft. Not like there's much torque there. Not sure what the cross drilled hole I see in the pic is though. Might be a matter of making ...

Re: Installing Bearing on Dremel Shaft

Seems to me, you could use a bearing spliter, or contrive one on your own, and tap the end of the shaft with a dead blow, or plastic hammer and drive it out of the bearing. I've done a lot of air tools that way. I use a 5 gallon bucket full of rags to catch the shaft. You can use a press too, but on...

Re: Is MSC Totally Useless?

Well....I just told you how to deal with MSC. Register. Sign in. Check your price. Apply any codes you have. Add in the freight, if there is any. Check everywhere else. The one with the best price wins. Buy it from the winner. No, it ain't like Enco. A good one bites the dust. That said, if MSC has ...
