Re: installing quil on mill drill

I talked with a friend who has a different Asian mill/drill. This is an unusual type with the swivel table. His "lock out" of the fine feed is by a knob in center of the levers' hub. It is pulling a pinion out of contact with the fine feed, someway.The worm shaft is 8 5/8" long with only 1 1/2" of w...

Re: installing quil on mill drill

Even disconnected from the fine feed, the fine feed shaft is able to be bent.

Re: Difficult To Remove Screws

I think the first thing is to put the other screws back in. Then try freeing the stuck ones. There is pressure against those threads which works to disadvantage. This being one of those deals where all the screws are backed out evenly and reassembled evenly.

Re: installing quil on mill drill

If the fine/ micro adjust feed is operating, it is moving the quill via the worm and worm wheel. The older m/d s had a knurled sleeve between the levers' hub and the micro adjust. May be tight but it should turn a few times to fully engage the micro adj OR lever feed.

Re: Made a shop press

Thanks reubenT. I know you tuned it up. Some broaches are for steel and some for bronze. Since you know about the differences, the cutting angles aren't the same.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

A broken wrist changes a lot things. Anything in that area has tendons and small bones. Some may heal but tendons don't. My right arm was fractured just below the wrist, to where my hand was 90 degrees to the broken bones. I could go on about the swelling while in the emergency room lobby and how ma...

It actually diminishes an ordinary way of contributions. Over the phone or by check, it gets around . We have to do that which is correct. We don't nee...

Oh heck, Ed. In the middle of the night or early morning, we post stuff. Wish it never happened sometimes. We are going thru the absence of sunlight and lacking vitamin D. :) I liked swing shifts to a point but they can really mess a person up. Talk about "swing shifts", think about our wounded sold...

Re: OT creative language

Street corners are interesting. You have to maintain the sidewalk and also the access to the fire hydrant for forty years. It is getting more tough and maybe I do end up at the corner.
