Re: Milling Machine Power Feed

The ones Busy Bee have, at least the ones I found, are for Bridgeport type machines. It won't fit your mill drill. You need to find one like this that clamps on the end of the table. https://www.shars.com/products/machinery/power-feeds/mill-drill-table-power-feed-for-jet-machine. Grizzly have some b...

Re: Single vs double end end mills

I didn't mean to say the won't work in a collet only that the plant I worked in used them in Weldon type holders and should have said without any damage to the end in the holder. It was a CNC plant and practices there would not be the same in home or small businesses running manual machines.

Re: Single vs double end end mills

Maybe just the place I worked but I recall the double ended cutters having "whistle notches" in them to fit in Weldon type holders and not in collet holders.

Re: Removing End Of Broken Pipe From Pressure Pot Manifold

I wouldn't use a rigid connection at all. I would mount the manifold to a plate attached to the dolly frame. Nipples in the manifold (90º) and pot (straight) with a flex hose between. The hose would allow for misalignment and prevent/reduce cracking from vibrations or handling. While the barbed fitt...

Re: Removing End Of Broken Pipe From Pressure Pot Manifold

A couple times when I had no other choice I ground out part of the pipe just enough to get to the threads with a rotary file and a sandpaper cartridge roll. Then picked out the bits left in the thread.

Re: First time using super glue chuck

Try soaking it in Acetone. It should dissolve or soften the glue after a while.

Re: Floating reamer holders

While good telescoping gauges are an inexpensive means of measuring bores I would suggest you look at a dial bore gauge set in the size range you want to measure. Once set for a size you can measure the diameter easily and repeatedly. They also show if there is any taper in the hole and ovality. Bes...

Re: Finished trike.

Spro do you mean a guard to keep clothing from getting caught in it or from slinging debris on to the rider? Otherwise from a mechanical point of view I don't see the difference from a normal derailer bike not having guards.

Good work on making your own ride.

Harold perhaps this company would have what you are looking for even if in the form of a larger diaphragm you could cut what you need from.

Re: The home shop machinist, health of the hobby

In the olden days "on call" for work it meant sitting near the phone all day. With a cell you can be anywhere within reason doing other things but when called, drop what you were doing and report for work. Not an issue now that I'm retired but for an aircraft mechanic friend it is a freedom when his...
