Re: Titan Trains Titan Jr electric

If you are going to go with Honda, the 5 HP is available with 2:1 reduction which puts the output shaft back into the center. I have had good luck with this combination with the switcher that I built 25 years ago. Just a thought.

Re: TIG Welder - Everlast

A Miller Syncrowave 200 is a bargain at $1500. I bought a new 250 Syncrowave a couple of years ago, and don't regret it at all. I couldn't find any used ones around here that weren't trashed.

Re: Advice on the heavy mikado

Railroad Supply has the castings and prints for the USRA Mikado. Call Mike after 6pm Eastern Time.
Also, RRSC does have a web site, and there is a pdf catalog that you can download. "Mikadoguy" is Mike's oldest son and has been doing a lot of the
website, catalog, contact him on this board.

Re: FOR SALE VFD (variable frequency drive)

Bill: Depends on the quality of the drive. The "cheap" drives yes. A friend of mine does this with his shop...turn on the drive when he walks in the door, then turns on the BP with the For/Rev switch. Same with the lathe. Only once was the smoke and parts let out of the VFD...direct lightning strike...

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.
