Re: Please check my safe tie down

What you call softeners, we call chaffing I use pieces of old fire hose the type that has a rubber coating on the inside, I've actually used chain going thru the hose pieces on finished edges and never marred them.

Re: 1/2 - 12 tap

I've found that stuff made in India uses 1/2-12 if you only need to thread on less than 3/8" it'll go.

Re: Blower

Do you have access to air or just electric, if air just make a venturi tube stick it in the stack turn on the air your done. Electric just get a blower and make an adapter to fit the stack stick it in and turn on.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

The best chafing that I've found is old fire hose the type that looks like canvas with rubber on the inside, I use the 4" size cut into 4" and longer pieces slip the straps thru the hose, they don't slip or cut.

Re: Chinese DRO for Mill

What I've started to do if I'm worried about my location is to move the machine back to the original zero point X and Y then if you lose power you know what your location is.

Re: Cutting Oil darkens machinery surfaces

At the place I work we use Zurn Oil really great for tapping and threading but it leaves the chuck face with a tan finish, most will wipe off with some acetone but there is still a sheen of tan , to me it just proves I've been working , I find it's not the fumes but the mist when I blow the chips of...

Re: When is an arbor a Collet?

I have R8 collets and an R8 arbor that I use for slitting saws so both terms are correct.
