    Mebbe a bit OT but if you like "interesting" wrecking yards check out Casey's semi truck salvage, local to me.... good ppl to deal with. https://www.caseystrucksalvage.com/

    I was being conservative with the "about a second" it can stop it nearly instantaneous.

    Your in a good spot where your located if wanting to use similar setup,would guess there's a Snowmobile Wrecking Yard close by.

    I like it. I've considered something similar for my lathe, either mounted directly to the chuck back plate, or on the other end of the head stock.

    Yup. I call it like I see it. JR

    Edit: I should have clarified, distilled it and buffed it out for you.

    I, myself think I am an Idiot because I am not as smart as most of the folks here, including yourself.
    I don't mind that, introspective? I can maneuver just fine around here.

    I think you are an Idiot (not the dolt meaning) because you seem to lack a certain quality that is not off putting some or most times here. You are very smart so I give latitude for folks like that. Heck you can even go back in the posts prolly 2-3 years ago when I was sticking up for you and let the guy know.

    The funny part is I will still stick up for you, even though you dont give a hoot. hats fine.

    Solly, Idiot JR

    Thats the ticket right there. Hyd fluid is pretty fast, much more than brake cables. (water is faster It doesn't compress as much.

    No the Earth is not flat and I think the compress-ability of general water and hydraulic oil will be different? Spiff-ballin. Not really , it physics folks.

    That is a clean system you have there. I like. JR

    On a related note - what are you guys' thoughts about using the brake to slow down & stop the spindle (after turning power off), like for power tapping or something like that? I've mostly only used it to hold the spindle when it's already stopped; and am not clear if it's ok to use it in a dynamic situation, I've tried it a couple times and it does work but haven't done more than that.[/QUOTE]

    Yes. I am a dolt.
    I forgot. I programed in a stop.
    Not for tool change.
    Its simple CNC. JR

    They all can be adjusted to go full over. I dont suggest that.

    Its a working brake.not a parking break on my lovely.

    She has air brakes.....JR

    I just bought a Bridgeport last summer and I have used the brake to stop the spindle in between operations but never knew I could lift the lever and lock it. So thanks for the info and my brake works as it should.
