Re: Table saw blades and arbors

Steve,
Aren't the arbor for the P&W mill keyed ?
I'd be curious to see one of your spacers, just got a broach set and been broaching everything in sight,

Re: The Cheap Tool guy got me...

A majority of the time the taps and dies are decent from Victor, the price is right if it's a once in a blue moon tapping job.

Re: The Cheap Tool guy got me...

Russ,
Could Victor Machinery have what you need ?
https://www.victornet.com/subdepartment ... /1290.html

They're local to me and they're my go to place for one off things like a 3/4-10 tap.
Truth be told some things are India made, some are not too shabby some are pure buffalo bagels.

Re: Table saw blades and arbors

Thanks Harold, just needed some confirmation that a spacer would just be a locator.

Table saw blades and arbors

I have a small Inca cabinet saw that I'd like to get running, only problem is that the blade arbor is 15mm and no one makes 15mm holed saw blades anymore and 5/8" holed blades are too sloppy a fit for comfort ( did I mention I dislike table saws because I have to lean over a spinning blade ? :roll: ...

Re: 3-in-1 Advice Needed from the Experts

Have you looked at Craigslist for separate lathe and mills ?
Depending on where you're located there may be lots of options.

Re: Wanted 5C Collets

Do they even make 5C collets by 1/128ths ?

You might want to look into metric 5C -
.164 = 4.17mm
.138 = 3.51mm
.112 = 2.84mm

Re: Small Diameter Slitting Saw

Does the saw have to be .50 diameter ?
McMaster has slitting saws that are .040 but they're 2.75 dia.
Victor Machinery has them in 2" dia - https://www.victornet.com/subdepartment ... /1592.html

Re: machining should square

Is there enough room behind that shaft shoulder for a interference fit bushing ?
You could turn and bore one and heat the bushing to slip right in and have a true face for the washers.

I don't think Terry's idea is that crazy, if it's a small amount that you have to turn to get a square shoulder.

Re: Cutting Mats

I didn't know they were popular for machinists, I've seen them in videos and such it's probably because of the grid for sense of scale, doesn't hurt that it's a slight cushion for when they fumble and drop a $10 grand Fickymanouli Whachamacallit during a show and tell. But its a go to for artists, t...

The plates are larger than your chuck. How are you holding them on the lathe?
Running that size hole saw on the lathe was a wise choice. Most drill presses run way to fast for large hole saws.
The first few pictures seem to show a tube welded to the plate.
Did I guess right ?
