Re: Scored a Vintage 8" Baldor Grinder...Questions Though

Your going to have to make some caps for the bearings then, as they are an integral part to the guards. You could just saw off the guards. :puke:

Re: Opinion on re-tapping screwhole in electric motor case

I don't blame you for takin' it in especially on a new unit.

Re: Repairing "The Oliver" My Cast Iron Shop Table

Chinese importer bought the rights to the name "Oliver".

Re: Powered welding cart

Just mount a cord reel to your cart. Cut off the female outlet and put on a plug.
Wire what used to be the feed end, to an outlet and you are set, no screwing around winding up cords ect.

Re: Modine Verticle Hydronic Heaters?

That's got to be around 100K BTU judging by the size of it.
It's going to take one hell of a water heater to keep up with that thing.
Would not even bother to hook it up to a normal WH as after...

You could do it with a couple of electrical cams like my power ball valve setup.

Re: Clausing Drill Press/Nice Craigs Find

I would agree with you on that.

Re: Made in USA Welding Helmet

Had one of those in the past, and it worked very well.
Like the shade dial being on the outside.
The head gear is good as well.
The only problem is you can't replace the batteries in them.
