    • Annular bearing bores, 50 each 2.047 +.000-.0015" Dia. X .866" deep in steel.
      Then 54 each .8750 +.0000 -.0005" Dia. X .531" and .281" deep on opposite ends of the roller in POM.
      A terribly boring way to start a week as you can probably imagine (-:

      • I have really not had to use Face Mills all that often on tool steel such as A-2. Today I had to knock a 4”x 5” x 3/4 piece of A-2 down to 5/8 thick. I used this SECO 4 tooth insert face mill to do that and was astounded at the performance and quiet operation. I had used a smaller triangle insert 3 tooth a little earlier on a different piece and it was typically clacky while cutting. This SECO unit with octagonal inserts was quiet and actually fun to use on a mill with no table feed.

          I thought of that, but I'd also need to remove the stator (field). Maybe I'll try that before consigning it to the scrapyard, but it's hardly worth it.

          I have three corded 3/8" drills and a 1/2" corded drill, as well as 3 or 4 working Ryobi cordless drills (plus one with a broken case). And I have several old cordless drills that use NiCad batteries which are non-functional. I just bought two 7.2V NiMH battery packs for my DeWalt power screwdriver that also had defunct NiCad packs. I considered buying 12 NiMH 4/5 C cells for about $25 but the complete new packs were only a couple bucks more.

          Maybe I could fix some of my other cordless tools that need NiMH cells to replace their dead NiCads. But I don't really need those tools - I just hate trashing them.

            • There are no markings showing mfr or vintage. Although I am the "Lord of Lost Causes", this seems genuinely hopeless and pointless. And if I take drastic measures to take it apart enough to fix it, it will lose its value as an historical relic.

                  • Very nice Mike72 ! ^^^^^^

                    I had a truck delivery and watched this CBP helo maneuver in ways that kicked up big dust bombs. The border is about 100 feet past that position. I’m guessing he was trying to discourage some “migrants” or maybe just herd them for capture.

                        Thanks Tim. I bought it new in 1978. You must see a lot of action being that close to the border.

                              "Proof of Space" mining instead of "Proof of Work", uses a tiny fraction of the power. It was created by the same person that created Bit-Torrent
