Re: Phoson 0 brazing rod

Absolutely correct, Russ! Makes changes causing brittleness.

I used to do a lot of fabricating with Sil-Fos, gas and tig, and it can't be beat for how handy it is compared to actually welding copper, which takes loads more heat!

Re: What are these things?

Long ago I had some Somma tooling and a catalog. I remember those and, they are cut-off tools. They mounted on a shank like the pre-formed 60* threading tools that looked similar...

Make a shank and use a good stout bolt,,

Nice find!

Re: Vintage Craftsman Drill Press

Yep, folks think the old is no good and the new is best. Very ignorant! With the old machines there is enough material and correct design to allow one to re-build to new. The new one's hardly have enough material there to hold them together!!!

Cheers!

Re: Vintage Craftsman Drill Press

You should post an intro. first so we know who we're talking to... :D

Picture? I have a couple of oldies (one from the middle '30s) and like them more than the new ones. So in my mind they are quite valuable!

Re: Speaking of Shop Realities ...

Just this morning I couldn't find my shingle hatchet. I used it a few weeks ago... it's not in the 'roofing' bucket... looked all over the shop... nowhere. I found it while looking for something else. It was in a bucket... the wrong one!! Now I have to fix the shop roof before it rains tomorrow. Eve...

Re: Pvc pipe for air ??

IIRC, brake pipe pressures seldom exceed 40 psi...??? If so, I would think PVC would be just fine...

Re: Dial for Drill Press Speed Control?

That hasn't been my experience. I have a plain old hardware store turn-the-knob dimmer in a box. With an outlet and a power cord. Highly portable. I use it with my routers, tool post grinder, die grinders, Biax scrapers, the lot. While I may not try for the slowest possible speeds (that would be pro...
