Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

Googles or a full face shield, and particle masks.
Full face mounted on top of a hard hat, hat is what I wore to the grocery store.
Wife scolded me like a teenager "You are not going out in public like that"
What is the matter with women?

Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

The ocean is growing, the islands are shrinking and the boat have a fixed range. Or another way to put it the immunized set is growing and dispersin...

What is the mechanism that abate the epidemic? Granted that a cure or a vaccine can be found and contain...

Re: Mystery drill bits

The reason I suggested to be a drill for flush rivet holes is hat it may explain the odd size pilot hole and the various angle like the rivet heads are different for different skin thickness. Is just a guess, I have no airplane technology knowledge.

Re: Can't Get Hole Drilled Through Sandblast Cabinet

I do not know if propane behaves the same but I made a City Gas lighter by turning a short Nickel Chrome wire red hot with current.

Re: Turning small diameters, right/wrong way

Re: Turning small diameters, right/wrong way

The smallest diameter is 1/3 the length. No problem, held in a collett do that first. All other feature are "short". No problem there. Push out and turn down. This way you are not cutting to far from the chuck. The "wrong way" is to weaken the entire length progressively until you are left with a fl...
