Re: Building a bed turret

and proper setup of the die head allows for it to cock again without operator intervention. H Harold do you have a picture or something to show this? I have used a turret lathe before, but have never seen or thought of this. I try to avoid turret lathes. Butt they are nice to have around if you nee...

Re: Wells index model 40 mill forsale

The #9 spindle bore can be machined to take R8 tooling. One manufacturer offered to do this on their older mills. Been too long and don't remember which manufacturer it was or what they were going to charge for it. One time back in the 80's a guy wanted me to do it to his mill. I asked him if he had...

Re: Product review turning holders & inserts

Should work for a small lathe. I tend to avoid lathe tools with metric shanks. I have even returned tooling that was stated 3/8 shank and came 10MM. It doesn't fit my tooling. So I don't want to waste time messing with something that doesn't match the tooling I already have. Some will say its not ha...

Re: Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

The rain came Friday in about 2:30 AM. Some of the people took it upon themselves to try to put out the big fire threatening their homes and the city of Molalla.

Re: Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

Most people believe the firs are set on purpose. I am one of them. One couple had 2 guys set one of their round hay bales on fire in Markum. The guy was going out his driveway and spotted 2 guys starting a hay bale on fire. They go away and he couldn't chse them because he had to put the fire out. I...

Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

We were rated at level 3 for forest fire danger last Tuesday. Today we are still rated a level 3. Tired and praying for rain, which we should get Tuesday sometime. Missed 4 days of work, but the house is still there. I go about once a day to see if the house is still there. This morning I drove from...

Re: Huron #8-13FD/3P soft jaw boring tool

Nice tool. If I hadn't just bought 3 internal 3 point micrometers, I would buy this. As Colonel Sherman T Potter said when they delivered light bulbs instead of underwear to the 4077: "Both useful, but hardly interchangeable". Steve But the internal 3 point internal micrometers are often used with ...

The price from Haas is probably for a new computer and the latest software.
