Re: Pricing on Jet 9x32 vertical mill with power x feed???

I'd like to add one thing to this thread. That machine is well within the capabilities of of a couple of guys to move, a full size mill not so much.

Re: VFD/ 3ph motor on lathe Need countershaft?

Re: 4 gallons of hydraulic oil on floor

Good idea and a nice job. I think I would add a 5 gallon plastic bucket to the bracket so it could contain the oil if the reservoir ever leaked. It would only need to be 1/2 the height of the...

Re: Kicking an idea around for a press brake

Your design concept for a press brake is a scale up of the press brake attachments for a hydraulic press. You may want to study how real press brakes are built and think about why they are designed...

Re: Fabricating things from conduit

I'm under the impression that 4130 was invented for airframe use and OA welding was the preferred method of welding. If you TIG 4130 it needs to be stress relieved after welding. Is this incorrect?

Re: DIY weld fumes extractor

Nice job. Smart of you to extract the welding fumes at the table level and not suck fumes past the breathing zone.

Re: Finding a fitting?

Those measurements are a close match to a standard 4" steel weld elbow. You should be able to find one at any large plumbing supply store.

Re: Water pump flange rework

Are you boring the hole before reaming? Do you dial in the face of the flange before boring and reaming? Is the hole you're trying to ream run true? Anyof these might cause your problem.
