    What's on your bench

    It may have been easier to submerge that one for a week and then come back to it.:surprised3:

    What's on your bench

    This is what it looks like with the flats turned and just the center drill ran through at .311. I just ordered my 21/64 (.3281) bit today as well as the tap so it will be next weekend before I can finish the holes out and thread them.

    What's on your bench

    I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, working on making a center rest for my lathe. That ring started out as a 4"x1.25" long piece of 4140 heat treated and stress relieved that I cut off of some fan shafts that I demo'd about a year ago. I took it down to 3.75"x.750" and opened the center...

    What's on your bench

    Well that was fun, finally got the three jaw broke loose on the lathe. I hate it when people don't take care of things, I figured it was some cheap no name chuck on it but once I got it off I was able to see made in England stamped on the back side. No wonder when I put a 1/2" drill bit in the...

    What's on your bench

    WOOHOO. Half nuts are fine, The lead screw was so full of crap they couldn't grab, I cleaned the lead screw and now it's running fine. :happybanana: He owned the book on it and never read it. He didn't even realize that it was in back gear all the time and that it could be changed.

    What's on your bench

    Once I replace the half nuts I will have X axis power feed, I just have to change gears instead of a quick change gear box for now. So basically it has lateral feed but the half nuts have to be replaced for it to work. The lead screw is in perfect shape. I will look into a quick change tool post...

    Also, all the gears came with it and are in good shape, also a independent 4 jaw chuck. A bunch of tooling and live center. Two chucks for the tail stock as well and more. There was a box of stuff that came with it so I haven't checked it all out yet.

    What's on your bench

    The seller told me I would have to replace the half nuts, that they where stripped. Manual is still in the truck on the model number. I will get some half nuts ordered for it in the near future but it will do what I need in manual mode for turning a base down since there is no powered cross feed...

    What's on your bench

    It's a baby, It's only a 6" but it's enough to turn cylinders for now. I was just about to pull the trigger on two Logan 14" lathes out of Ca. and head that way but I just really don't want to deal with storing them until I move this spring. This one will get me by until I get my house and get a...

    036 pro air filter

    That filter is considered a winter filter. It does not filter as well as the flocked/fleece filters. I had to go over this with my local Stihl dealer and he argued with me and said that is a normal filter for an 036. He ended up calling Stihl and they explained to him that it is a winter filter...

    OEM is Farmertec?

    OEM isn't OEM all the time either. I've bought a couple of things listed as OEM and had aftermarket shipped to me on eBay. I had to ship it back and get my money back. Most of the time I go to online businesses to get OEM to be safe. Also had it happen once on Amazon.

    Acceptable compression ?

    I just went through this with a saw build. I have an OTC that was reading 122, ring gap is tight, schrader valve at end of hose. I changed the schrader valve and still the same reading then bought another tester (cheap one) with a shorter hose and schrader at end of hose, same reading. The only...

    Gas Question: Premium Gas or Ethanol Free

    I was taught in training it's 4% for every 1K in elevation but wherever your info came from may use 3%. I'm a service tech and have to D rate for burners and those are the numbers we are taught to use (not saying your numbers are wrong just saying this is what I was trained to use). So by my...
