Re: 60° v block

I've considered doing the same and decided the way to go would be to dress a wheel that was wide enough to make a single pass to 30 degrees. I have a sine chuck on my grinder so I would just set the chuck to 30 degrees and all would be good. The relief groove at the bottom of the V would give you ro...

Re: Using 5C collets

While Import 5C collets are as you describe, some manufacturers, (Hardinge for one) "spring" their collets. This means that when relaxed, they are sprung slightly over size so the stock can easily slide through them.

I got rid of all of my Import (Chinese) 5C collets for the reason you describe.

Re: Gage blocks

I believe you are reading it incorrectly as they are +/- 50 millionths, not 5 tenths.

You are basically protecting the wiring from damage in this case, not the bulb.

Re: Need advise starting a mothballed car

Just a side note... I have a friend that is still in rehab and was in intensive care for nearly sixty days with burns and skin grafts on over 25% of his upper body, arm, hand, neck, and face, after trying to start a vehicle by pouring gasoline in the carburetor. Something we have probably all done a...

I. I have another torch with the oxygen lever, and I suspect it has something like 6 ports. I would try that next time.
That's a cutting torch.

Re: Need advise starting a mothballed car

Not familiar with Jeeps at all, but on Chevrolet engines the camshaft drove the distributor and the distributor drove the oil pump. Removing the distributor allowed you to insert a shaft in a drill motor that would engage the oil pump so you could run the pump to prime it and pre-oil the engine prio...

Re: Thread Milling

For one, there is no helix to it, as I ran it at 3700 rpm and 20 ipm feed and it just ran a spiral pattern down the stock equal to the thread pitch per helical orbit as if it was a single V cutter. It's also Carbide. I programmed 11 orbits since I plan on using it for stainless. If I was only cuttin...

Thread Milling

I always wanted to give it a try. I had a job that needed external 1/8" NTP threads on stainless. I have a really nice taper attachment for my lathe that I have never installed, so I tried cutting the pipe threads using a Geometric Die Head and it worked, but the results were not as nice as I had ho...
