Re: Cx706 Craftex problems

What do you mean by that? The breaker has tripped or fuse has blown. There is a load, an electrical load which may be a short. You can't put amps to that. Does the bed have certain hairy feel to it? Back away and get the wiring straight.

Re: Bad vibrations; is it in my head?

The carriage feed is timed to the motor drive. The "pattern" is telling you something. Is it interrupted or continuous?

Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

What kind of a world would that be? It seems that was tried over and over and there wasn't enough people to bury their dead.

Re: Turning long thin shafts

Thinbits by Kaiser are extremely thin and perfect. They require a perfect tool holder.

Re: out of the blue Big Dave

The money would go to those who didn't further help him. I lost or let's say close friends Died from complications of this virus. It started in 2019 and the flu shot suppressed it. Ugly virus continues with damage in many ways. Think you're over but you're not. This is a horrible concocted weapon or...

Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

I thought I was doing well and all this blood coming out my right nasal cavity. I didn't have a problem before. I was using Zycam and it really does work. Left nasal passage was healing while too strong for the right. Whatever it takes. It is fine and I can walk again and get things done.

Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

Pretend there wasn't a reason. Kill all the humans and leave the huge fields intact. Before killing the humans, remember the ( stupid) cheap movies They flooded the world and dear people thought that was the way. The Blob or the the Thing was absorbing an entire town. One way was a virus and this pl...

Re: NMG carbide negative rake inserts for SB9

I don't want to talk over you, just a conversation. The OP mentioned "old tooling" and that refer to exactly what you said. The South Bend 9 is sturdy enough but has a narrow compound slide. The saddle slide is not meant for using those type bits. Further backwards we can surmise things about the 9A...

Re: Milling vise choice

My Bridgeport mill is from 1956 transition year. They changed from round ram to the dovetailed slide ram but the machine still has the smaller table, knee and basically smaller footprint. The "J" head dates to 1953. I thought that impossible but following many sold mills and data, it appears they ma...
