Split bolts are a pain in the butt, but they are cheap. This is what I use for splicing in panels and J-boxes. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Polaris-1-0-14-AWG-Insulated-Tap-Connector-Black-IT-1-0B/303578418?mtc=Shopping-VF-F_Vendor-G-D27E-27_11_TOOLS_And_ACCESSORIES-Generic-NA-Feed-PLA-NA-NA-TOOLS_AC...
That is a lot of work you have done, so far! My first bike was a XS650. I may even have a set of decals for that bike. I have a 74 Ironhead that I smoothed and polished, on a 6" bench grinder. Shaved the lowers with a belt sander before polishing them too. When I first bought the Ironhead, it as a r...

All our cats have been adopted from those that hang around. As they were on the streets to before we started feeding them, they knew how to hunt. We keep them outside most of the time, except for in the cold days of winter, and they have always earned their keep.

If you go by NEC code, all wiring must be protected up to 8" from the floor, by a wall covering or conduit. The romex that is fished over the rafters and down into the cinder block, to the box that is flush...
Another project. I help a group put on a festival each year, for the last 15 years. We usually have a bon fire, but in the last few years we have been on different properties, and the event is held in August, and that is when the fire danger is the highest around here. So we did not have a fire for ...
This is what I think. I started on a SB 10L, about 8 years ago. It was a great lathe for a newbie, and your 9" will serve you well, to learn on. Because they are belt drive, and usually less than 1hp. they can save you a lot of money in broken parts and tooling, when you crash, just because the odds...

Interesting project, Liveaboard. I sure hope this works as intended, for the amount of effort you have put into it. I sure do like projects like this. Fabricated from discarded things to make things not on the market. Pretty cool in my book. I will be eagerly waiting to see the outcome.
Hey everyone! The lathe is up and operational. Both mechanisms work well. The control lever as it sits, will only do FWD and REV, to get it to do Stop also, I need to do a little rewiring in the VFD cabinet, which is behind the lathe. Moving the lathe out, away from the wall, is a slow process and w...
