Re: Amazing machine work

Glen, I like the display and it even seems it has some kind of plan. That engine must have a gazilion parts. How do you put is back together with all those parts seemingly scattered.

Re: metric drill swap

Re-reading my post it may be interpreted as negative. I am all for having as many drill sizes. Sometime is a good idea to double drill to avoid going oversize. A drill shaving a few thousands is not going to improve location or straightness but it will improve roundness and size.

Re: metric drill swap

metric drills, which I have little use for.
A metric drill is nothing but a filler for spaces between imperial sizes.

Integer number infinitely many
Rational number infinitely many

One could not possibly have all the sizes

Re: Graziano SAG12

If everything fail you can take the transformer to a motor rewind shop and see if they can reverse engineer the transformer. Is not difficult, I have done a few.

Re: Diaphragm fabric

Basically you want a piece of a mackintosh raincoat.
If all else fails you can sandwich a Teflon layer between two silicon reinforced fabric layers.

Look at McMaster under "Fabric" AND under "Gasket" is not known if some fabrics are water proof or porous but some may be impermeable.
