Re: Show us your milling machine!

Bought the same Clausing mill about a year ago . Looks like it was used once or twice. Came with the overarm supports and 3 horizontal arbors still new in the boxes. The Bridgeport adaptor would be a nice addition. Haven't decided yet whether I'll keep the machine or sell it

Re: Stainless steel boiler/exchanger?

One thing to consider when welding stainless or any of the alloy metals for that matter, if you put to much heat or not enough heat into your welds they are prone to cracking. To much heat can also reduce corrosion resistance. There is a lot more to this, just do a google search of excessive heat in...

Re: SS is toxic in California

I think the problem is California is toxic....therefore anything in California has now been infected and is toxic! Here in New York everything is toxic, they just don't warn you.

Re: 12" or 15" gauge, what is available?

Glenn, That's what I have found, nothing is available in 3" scale. That brings me to my next question, what if anything is being sought after in 3" scale? or any of the larger scales for that matter? I've been thinking about getting involved in possibly producing parts for 3" /large scale steam, or ...

Glenn,

Do you have a list of the 15" vendors and the parts/products they carry (steam related)? parts other than couplers, trucks & wheels? To narrow it down a little more...3"scale.

Re: Alloy question

I machine a lot of 304 and 316 stainless. The chips do turn yellow when heated, especially if your using insert tooling and no coolant. Once heated the chips are magnetic, whereas taking light cuts with coolant where the chips come off silver, there is little to no magnetism to them. The scrap compa...
