    Maybe it was Relion? That's what I've been using for a few years on steel and titanium. It's clear (although slightly yellow) and doesn't smoke much. I haven't noticed a nice odor when cutting with...

    Another option is to use a cat's head (maybe the wrong term, but a tube with a spider on each end) mounted to the barrel, and turn a stripe on that for the steady rest. That avoids damaging the...

    That looks like exactly the same machine as my 1991 Jet mill, other than the brand plate. Same color and everything. The newer Jet manual (downloadable online) is a good resource if you need one and...

    That has not been my experience. If I change tooling, the setting is lost anyway (since position relative to the tooling is what's important in Z axis). I installed a 3 axis DRO on my Bridgeport...

    That picture of the tap is interesting. Where did you order the grinder from?

    Well you did get a bunch of advice in this thread on how to do exactly that, but it seems you chose to disregard pretty much all of it so there's not much point in hashing it all out again. Just...

    No, not really. 2 flute is good for aluminum, but that doesn't make it "an aluminum bit". They're good for steel as well, and highly recommended over a 4 flute for slotting. He's not running a...

    Yup, just buy a blank. Check with Green Mountain Barrels, I've bought 38 caliber blanks from them for as low as $40, but they are good quality and every blank I've used from them shoots very well.

    I have an 8" table (from Taiwan I think) and have always been happy with it, except when carrying it around the shop. I'd have to check the brand, don't remember at the moment and hate to give bad...

    I wonder if there's a chance your "general knowledge" might be incomplete on this subject? Underground streams are real, and are not almost non-existent as you claim. Particularly in mountainous...

    I think a hyper sensitivity (maybe to magnetic fields or something like that?) as someone mentioned earlier is probably the key, even though we don't know how that works or what it is.

    I was able...

    I like cutting hexes and do them a lot for a certain part I make. I'd like to try that with a straddle mill, sounds neat.

    I don't have a horizontal mill, so I do them in my Bridgeport clone with a...

    It's OK to take both at once if you need to for pain; those two are OK to mix and commonly administered together even for kids.

    Muscle pain can be bad sometimes, but if you're able to get through...

    3MT is common as others said, but don't mount a chuck to it that way. Mount the chuck to your table; with your 4-slot rotary table you can mount a 4-jaw independent chuck directly.
    If you want to...

    I agree. (Talking about machinists who are not also gunsmiths, to be clear.) I've said before here, and caught a lot of flak for it but have observed that it's true - machinists in general make...

    No, it still might be the torch. "screws onto a tank" can cover a lot of bases, and the model he listed appears to be the small pencil flame. A larger torch head makes a huge difference, get the...

    Easy rule of thumb to remember that applies most of the time:
    - 300 series stainless has very little or no magnetic attraction
    - 400 series stainless is magnetic

    Obviously there are exceptions....

    No, Hi Force 44 is a solder, not just a flux. It does contain flux.
    I used some this weekend, but don't know who makes it or an alternative substitute.
