    You would most likely have to thread it in the lathe if your lathe will generate an 8 tpi thread pitch. You could grind a threading tool to match the thread profile on the screw since it is not a...

    I have a young cousin who just began teaching two years ago. Her number one complaint is the total lack of discipline. Many of the kids will not pay attention, sit still or even respect her or the...

    My old Rockwell 14" RAS had a bronze nut, so I think brass/bronze would be fine. This is most likely for the height adjustment,which isn't a precision screw anyway. If you were closer I would loan...

    Either way it would have been operator error, but to tip one just setting a 40 foot wooden light pole, he must have been way outside the chart for that one.

    Looks like the crane's outrigger found a storm drain, should have used mats/cribbing.

    Not a crane collapse, structural collapse, that's light framing for a building that size IMO.

    Good eye, I didn't watch that one all the way through, soon as I saw which lathe he was rebuilding I clicked off. That is the wrong model Atlas/Craftsman lathe to spend time rebuilding IMO.
