    Hi Ralph, +32- ouch. I am all over the net today because I twisted my ankle and stayed home. The worst part is that I want to go into the shop, and know it would not be a good idea. I am frustrated. Cheers, Fred PS, Hope it warms up for you!

    Ralph, I will be greedy and ask for more photos of both the off set center and the drilling head. Did you make the form tool in the power tapping photo? I have needed to make some morse taper pieces and don't have enough travel in my compound to do it by hand. I am in the process of making a die...

    Can anybody identify ?

    If the Kero doesn't work, see if you can get a product called Kroil. It is a super penetrant. Kano labs makes it. Fred

    GHT Tee nut?

    purplknif, GHTs Tee nut does exactly that. I described them incorrectly. Instead of hollow, which is what I wrote initially, GHT called them Tubular and the threaded section is completely encased by steel. The stud or bolt cannot go through and hurt the table of the machine. In my case, I...

    How to paint/highlight dials?

    Chazz, I will have to try that! So far, I have not done anything that worked on the dial that is my experiment. It is on an Atlas milling machine vise that can be swiveled around. It has very shallow marks. I figure that if I can make it work on that, everything else will be easier. ::) :big...

    GHT Tee nut?

    Hello, In GHTs book ME Workshop Manual, he specifically mentions using f.c.m.s. (not leaded) for the TEE-NUTS, pg 47. I wondered if that is because of a problem with the strength of the material or just his preference. I wanted to make some for my Atlas mill, so I am going to alter some of his...
