    wow! Ditto what RB211 wrote, what a fantastic write up. Working at such small diameters is not trivial, that's for sure. I made a couple of small stud earings from stainless rod over the summer and...

    I've seen some DIY versions with the lower die consisting of 2 stout (1"?) steel rods that can be moved closer or further apart for different thicknesses of materials. Can't remember how they were...

    very neat! Would love to see pics of the finished tab welder. I bought a Malectrics arduino tab welder and a 60C 3S li-po battery to run it with. Works a treat. If you want more current carrying...

    it's for sharpening the ends of end mills on a surface grinder. The angles are for relieving the cutting edges - one is for the 1-2deg angle from tip to center and the other is (I think) 7deg for...

    Brian - my only thought about the 2nd option would be how much leverage would the bobbin/ string be able to exert on the rack and whether or not the arm driving the rack would be stiff enough to...

    yabbut, can you spread it on your toast?

    Polaraligned, what's it going to be insulating? Looks almost like something to hold a heating element.

    yeah, that doesn't sound like a lot of room - a steel or brass thrust washer would still help a bunch though. Not sure how your table works, but on mine the leadscrews are only captive at the handle...

    I found that adding thrust bearings and new jibs made a huge difference in how much force was needed to get the table moving and how smoothly it did once it was moving. Well worth the effort. No...

    looks similar to the cheapy HF X-Y vise I used on my drill press as a "mill" for a couple of years, my guessing is that the Chinese just copied the Craftsman one. Lots of flaws, many of which you...
