Nice! I'm jealous, both the machine and the space.

Re: Machining Rubber

I froze it to 50 deg below, but then we had a freezer that would do that. Sometimes I had to use dry ice to freeze it.

Re: HGR industrial surplus. Euclid Ohio

I think the extra that they charge is to pay for their shipping dept. I have bought a plasma cutter from them and the actual UPS charge was $38 but they charged me $150 for shipping.

Re: Something good about Harbor Freight

My wife never loses tools, I do. She "borrows" them from the shop and then puts them back into her toolbox in the house! I will buy the HF tools and leave them in strategic places just for her.

Or call Mike. He has a lot of items that are not in the catalog yet, especially diesel detail parts.

Re: One man's insanity---the story of an induction furnace

We used phenolic for the insulators. Most of our furnace parts were made of aluminum, but parts still get hot.
I gave Liz a hug for you. Give Susan our best.

We are hoping to make Train Mountain this year, but see my PM
