Thank you very much for your knowledge!!
I did make it down to see the guy Saturday. Ended up almost hanging out chatting for an hour. Everything from cnc, trucks, work, to off roading.
He, like you is using an acorn. After looking at his setup it truly looks like the way to go to...
When it dies, does it bog down till it dies or just shuts off?
You wouldn’t happen to have $3000 in thermal imaging gear to observe temperature distraction would you?
Do the intakes on these get that hot?
They make stuff called “Canned Air” if turned upside down and sprayed thing can get...
Thank you Jason.
That fella has a lot of projects goin on.
Even at $2000, I would say money would be better spent on one of these vs an x2 or x3 to convert. If a guy has room for it...
I’m trying to get things together to go look at it next weekend.
Good day all,
I’ve been working to get my shop set up for what feels like years now and now that I’m getting closer I am giving this mill more thought.
I talked to the seller months ago and have a fair understanding of the shape of the machine. At the time I was just getting started on my shop...
This is on my list of things to build with the exception of mine being full size.
First the motor, then the trans, then the bike.
However, many more “urgent” projects first.
If you do build this please let us follow along.
Is there a reason for that circuit to be gfi in the first place? Maybe it’s code? I’ve always lived in the country or in a town without codes so you could rig about anything you wanted.
Do you have any other gfi circuits that you could swap the two new gfi’s into? I guess if it’s only your...
As a guy who has had gfi issues before (kitchen related) and seams to be a believer in doing the hard stuff first, check grounds.
As a guess this issue started as soon as the lathe was bought and likely that circuit not used very much prior?
As a thought, garbage disposals and refrigerators...
The last week I have been playing with ABS from 3dsolutec. Using the cheep knock off slicer that came with my printer I have been very pleased with the surface finish after doing an acetone vaper finish. Doesn't help you currently but might be something to consider.
Wow.. what a crazy month and a half it has been. So very unexpected twists have come up on this road I've been taking.
So! As an update on the building.... it's basically done. Sheetrock should be mudded and finish s handed Friday. I am taking Monday and Tuesday off to make sure painting gets...
In one week I went from having a bunch of random looking posts in the ground to having a building.
Friday Saturday Sunday and Monday were spent lay foam and the pex for the slab to be pored. (My self)
Monday the crew worked on grading the main shop area, and getting headers and stringers put...
Good looking little engine. I'm sure others can comment but I think the first build holds a special place in everyone's heart no matter how simple.
As for next, if you want to do a double acting, go for it! I built one out of a book called "Working air engines and more". I can't remember the...
I have grown up in a shop with nothing bolted down. our vice was on an old truck rim so i could be easily moved. Our welding table is 4x6 3/8" plate with 5 1/2" casing for legs and a tray under it for storing grinders, pipe wrenches and other tools, i would guess it weighs over 500...
