    I presume that translates as high quality Canadian weed?

      You assume correctly--It was legalized this week.

          • Finally got my old Bainbridge 7x12 bandsaw cutting with no derailments, help, etc! So stoked. Just cut a section of 3/4" rebar like butter!!

            • Busted out the old 3D printer to do some enclosure prototypes at work, decided to try printing a model of an ER32 collet. Thought maybe it could work as an emergency workholding collet on the lathe.

                Rebar is the devil.

                had to cut a lot of rebar for a basement wall replacement we were doing for the pastor... I do not know how many I cut, but I was using a portaband, and eventually I realized that the teeth had long worn off, and the thing was basically rubbing it's way through. We did not have another band, either, of course.

                The rebar was pretty clean, but a little rusty. may have been the rust, may have just been "rebar" made of whatever junk they had left.

                • I tried to cut some HF rebar with a bolt cutter, and barely dented it. So I used a hand hacksaw to saw about halfway through, then used a BMF hammer to break it. Only had a couple cuts to make, and I touched up the burrs with the grinder.

                    I'd look after my saw blades, be they band or hack. The best way to cut rebar is with an abrasive disc.

                        Yes sir. My test on rebar was just that, a test. Will be relegating rebar cutting to a disc. Now to break the saw down, give a thorough cleaning followed by a paint job. Going to include my young teenagers in this part of the process so who knows what color it will be. Daughter says pink, son says black. I'm leaning towards royal/midnight blue. Maybe a black stand, blue body with pink accents. ( I think I'm kidding....)

                            ....and count yourself grateful for not having to hacksaw it by hand
                            Just chucked up an inch bar of EN8 and parted off because I couldn't be arsed to hacksaw another one!

                            • I have a surface grinder, have had it for more than 10 years , could never understand why the rapid downfeed didnt work. Obtained a circuit diagram a few years ago , it was a hand drawn schematic from the 1960's it is complex and difficult to follow as there are many interlocks and the diagram is not in english its Czech. I finally bit the bullet and head down I read the schematic out loud untill I understood how this works, my wife said nothing which was probably best. There is nothing wrong with the machine , everyone should know you should energise the mag table and press both down feed buttons at the same time to get the vert down feed operational . i filled the coolant with 20 gallons of water and some coolant stuff then had a plesant afternoon grinding

                                Got a chuckle out of this, almost like getting a new machine with extra features. Glad you got it sorted out.

                                Reading a complicated Czech schematic is one thing but I'm always amazed when someone has had a piece of equipment in the yard for several years and has never once read the owners manual. Then when someone else points out some of the machines' features that are clearly discussed in the manual, it is as an almost biblical revelation. Definitely a Kodak moment. LOL
