Re: Fix for cheap magnetic welding squares

Sheesh, its a mag square for rough fabrication, not a machinists square.
These things are so cheap they are not worth the bother of setting up a mill
to machine them.

Re: How do you find the center of a hole using a mill?

Tight fitting pin gauge stuck in hole, then indicate with DTI.
"Stab" method mentioned above works fairly well also.

I guess all it depends on the accuracy required.

Re: vintage DeWalt Radial arm saw

Here's a biggie for you guys.
It's a 22" with a 10HP motor running at 3450 Rpm. :shocking:
I think a 20" blade is installed in these pictures, we do have a 22" for it though.
Slices through white...

Re: Looking for WW clamps

Bessey clamps are nice. Can be kind of pricey though.

Re: Reddy heater torpedo heater issues

Most likely a low air pressure problem.
Not enough pressure to get the proper atomization,so spray pattern is off, and it refuses to light.

I doubt it's the nozzle unless you have a lot of hours...

Re: Fix for cheap magnetic welding squares

Know the feeling, got some thin wall square tube for free.
Ended up buying a TIG welder to weld it up. :shocking:

Re: Toro kerosene torpedo

I remember my friend telling me about the Dart, and that it was brand new.
And how Ole E J was fixin' to cut the whole bottom out of it, so he could put in an
airplane engine.

Re: Toro kerosene torpedo

Back when I was in grade school you either liked Evil Knievel or E J Potter.
I think the class was split at 50/50.

Re: Toro kerosene torpedo

The newer ones are easy to convert as they have separate lines for fuel and air.
I had an old one that was built way better, but it had a shitload of hours on it
and the compressor could no longer...

Re: Toro kerosene torpedo

90% of the problems with these things is got to do with the air pressure being to low.
They are made very cheaply in the compressor section, the vanes wear out after a year or so. I have had three...

Re: New respect for TIG welders

Think you just picked something very difficult to weld,to practice on.
Time for some 1/8" steel that's nice and shiny.

Re: Fix for cheap magnetic welding squares

Yes, made that one and 3 others, these things are in constant use.
In fact I made a whole bunch of accessories for the sander, they all
reside in a small Clarke toolbox mounted on the wall right...

Re: Beat up 15" planer restoration

Those Weg motors are good, bet it is a replacement for the original motor though.
Nice find.

Re: Fix for cheap magnetic welding squares

Some of them had to have quite a lot, others just a quick touch up.
Some of the small ones did not have enough power to do anything useful.
After grinding them, it feels like they have 30-40% more...

Fix for cheap magnetic welding squares

If you have some of those cheap Harbor Freight magnetic squares then,
you already know how out of square these things can be.
Here is my quick fix for them.
Sanded all of them with a disk sander....

Re: Variable Speed Drive - what is it?

Those are the things I remove and replace with VFD's.
Still have to get rid of the one on my Bridgeport.
They are always making a lot of noise and vibration.

Re: I got a new toy

It can take a while to smoke all the bugs out of them completely.
We ran our router for 2 years with no problems, then on one job we noticed
somthing odd and traced it back to the post.

Re: Wood Band Saw or Circular Saw to cut steel

Another vote for the 4X6 bandsaw, best bang for the buck.
Get some good bi-metal blades for it, don't fart around with the carbon steel ones like I did.

Re: I got a new toy

Yes, don't even think of getting rid of that manual machine, you will be sorry if you do. They are so handy for just squaring up stock for the CNC and second operation work.
