    I think you should build one of those automatic saw sharpeners I've seen on video for sharpening huge bandsaw blades.

    Agree! Looks like someone randomly added pieces without regard to load paths.

    Better approach would be a simpler design and upsize the elements instead of adding pieces. My opinion.

    Looks like those two outer terminal are a little heavier gage too.

    I hate this feature. When I drive I try to maximize distance between my car and others. Fewer interactions and greater distance mean less chance for a mishap. I kept wondering why drivers would...

    Unpopular but I agree with you completely!!! Squeezing the automakers with fuel economy standards is like pushing a rope. Far better to pull the rope via higher fuel costs.

    Parts left out by design (such as oil pressure gage, lines, block machining to accomodate, etc.) will never cause warranty problems.

    Agree with this. I drive and repair a 98 Civic. Looks a bit intimidating at first but once into it quite easy to work on. My Club Car of the same vintage is just a PITA. Would rather work on the...

    That is a fair argument.

    In my experience, excessive clearances elsewhere in the engine are much more likely than oil pump wear but I will concede your point.
  9. I would not be the least bit concerned about...

    I would not be the least bit concerned about 20-25 psi at idle. Sounds pretty good to me. I would not change to higher viscosity. Lower indicated pressure likely means more oil flowing through...

    Teflon sheets are available etched on one side so you can glue it.

    I'd like to see your setup for the OD and ID bore on the shaper... I imagine it's possible but for sure the long way around. Have to at least drill a pilot hole.

    Kidding. I think you mean keyway...
  12. I've used my shaper to make and repair gears. ...

    I've used my shaper to make and repair gears. One example was a compound gear that had to be made in one piece. The larger gear I cut with a milling cutter but the smaller one had no room for...

    Relative humidity is a calculated value and not very useful to me.

    Instead, use dew point. This is measured data. Is the temperature of objects in your shop above or below the dew point? This...

    Would a shingle lift ladder be of any use? Ideas, parts, or in it's entirety?

    No experience with one, just a thought.

    I like this. Good tip.

    An aside, I recently salvaged the front door brushed stainless sheet from a dishwasher. Only about .020 inch thick but that is some tough material. I expect it must be...

    I used to laugh at the older guys who needed readers when TIG welding. I'm not laughing anymore. Best upgrade from my eye doctor is a reduced strength bifocal prescription. Working on projects at...

    Especially when working with sheetmetal. Auto body work and simple parts too. Might seem like a waste of time to deburr a blank before further work but I dont think so.

    A dial indicator on a mag base works very well for knee position. Zero your knee crank dial for backup.

    I don't see a need for Z axis readout in my milling experience. X and Y readout for sure...

    Ball bearings for feet sounds like a bad idea. Very small contact area will be sensitive to local surface variations on your plate.

    Perhaps I misunderstand your intent.

    My suggestion is to build one and test it. Or a scale model if you are concerned about material used.

    OK, I can accept that orings can work for model IC piston seals.

    What is the bore material? Not trying to closely fit an aluminum piston in an iron bore? Might be some thermal expansion seizure....

    If I understand, you propose using an elastomer oring for piston combustion seal/oil control on an internal combustion engine?

    I doubt this will work. I would expect combustion temperatures to...

    Plan your operations so the last two cuts each side to size are climb cuts will give clean edges with minimal burrs.

    How about a toolbox, modified as you need?

    Or if you can build it from scratch has the advantage that you get exactly what you want. Subject to tools and materials available.
