      • Last month I did a small kindness for Nickel-City-Fab. He very generously repaid me. Today the mailman delivered this box with 2 pounds of ground and polished solid carbide rods. I can't express how delighted I am.

        Thanks Peter!

        • Oh LOOK. There's more! Took off the tape and look what I found! These will supplement / replace many of my 15 year old Harbor Freight HSS endmills. The post before this one was meant to be humorous. These are excellent tools, much better than any I have in my tool chest. I'm now making custom holders for each to make sure that they last as long as possible.

          THANKS AGAIN Peter (AKA Nickel-city-fab)

            Hopefully make milling a bit easier, I recall you were having troubles with it cutting crooked and "pushing" the material.... I imagine you could just run max RPM in aluminum. Bet it'll take a decade or two to wear them out, and then they can be reground. Or simply use the shanks for pin gauges.

              • What did I do today? Good question. I am french-Irish so of course I went to the French side and made some charcuterie for the pagan Irish in my veins. Also known as Corned beef.

                I started it 14 days ago and am now putting it to bed for a 24hr steam,

                Well its a 15lb beef brisket. The large bars on the pot lid are there for steam hold-age. They are the largest bars of Tungsten carbide I have ever see. 20lbs ea. Holds the steam in.

                The non-contact thermometer is to temp the pot from top to bottom to make sure I am in my heat range I want.

                Yeah, I guess I kinda like GOOD corned beef ) JR

                    Now, i have no real need for any such thing, but it is nice to be prepared if i need to pull it out of my tuxedo pocket and oil something fine someday.

                    • Finished motorising the manual winch that tilts my antenna tower over (and, more importantly, back up again). Turning the handle on the winch was starting to resemble work, so I found an old quarter-horse three-phase motor with a reduction box on TradeMe (NZ's web-based auction site). The output speed is around 23rpm, and that results in a torque of around 55 pounds-foot (42NM).
                      The electronic whatsit in the white box is a cheap Chinese 240 volt single-to-three-phase VFD. The winch is self-arresting, so to stop the tower at any angle you just stop winding.

                      Many thanks to The Artful Bodger for help with getting the motor from his island to mine. Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0511.JPG Views:	0 Size:	2.86 MB ID:	1862074

                        So a homemade manual pressure cooker? Be careful. My mom once put supper on the ceiling when the relief diaphragm blew on her's when she got it too hot.
