Re: Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Thank you! Oxidizing the aluminum seems like an interesting idea. One of my friends needs some journal boxes. We got the idea of cutting out a mold using my little, working CNC machine...but it is so little I don't think it will handle much more than aluminum...and getting a thick enough graphic blo...

Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Would it be possible do you think to use aluminum for a mold to cast ZA-8?
The melting temps are 2 or 3 hundred degrees apart.

Or would the ZA-8 bond to the aluminum like that aluminum solder we see sold on late night TV??

Thank you,
MIke

I agree! Especially the first person controls angle! That sounds really cool.

Bugfix outage today (Today, Sunday, 8 or 8:30 central)

[It is Done!
Multiple Pictures should be fixed]

I will be making a patch to attempt to fix the multiple picture upload issue.
This will happen about 8:00 or 8:30 am central.
The system will have to be rebooted. I suspect it won't take more than a few minutes.

Re: In search of Precision...

I turns out that indexes for 3 character searches requires more than a configuration change for the phpbb software.
We can do 4 character searches, but with 3, for now, we need to rely on google.com.

Re: Bugfix upgrade today (Friday! - 9:00am Central!)

The upgrade is mostly done. I couple of odds and ends might still have to be flushed out.
I apologize, I don't know why the upgrade messes with your profile and changes your style sheet.
We should not need to make such a drastic upgrade for sometime now.

Re: In search of Precision...

This is another issue to take care of. In the meantime, you can try using google to search the site. Go to google, enter site:www.chaski.org/homemachinist cab for example to search for cab on the machinist site. There is a suggested fix for the short searches, which I will try when I do the bugfix u...

Re: Upgrade Complete...

I honestly don't know what was wrong with the old style. I really wanted to keep all the styles that had been previously installed. Unfortunately only two of the three old styles were available. It was not my choice to get rid of it. We do need to keep updating the software for support and board sec...
