  1. I've never seen a lathe use a drill chuck as the chuck. Interesting setup. Smaller lathes have their place and I hope to have one someday myself. Great score!
  2. You made it look easy Ma'am! Great video! Just subbed to your channel whenever I found IFI, and I appreciate all you share. Thank you!
  3. That's a cool find! I've never poured babbit, but if you go on Youtube and go to Keith Fenner's channel, he has a few videos showing how he does it. David Richards also has a video on how babbit bearings were poured circa 1925. He has a fully functional steam powered line shaft machine shop.
  4. He's going to. Reread his previous post.
  5. That's understandable. I'm unconventional in most things I do, so I get what you mean. At the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding, and you proved your way worked with this build. There's multiple ways to do things, and some (people in general) seem to forget that. Well I for one, would love to see what you come up with.
  6. Did you start, or are you planning on starting a thread for your pneumatic hammer build? I'd love to follow along, if you are willing to post up your progress!
  7. I agree. All my grinders are Milwaukee, and it is a very slick design.
  8. Thanks Mr. Ewert for sharing this! I have zero experience with power hammers, but I like it! I see you mentioned a VFD to control the speed, I was wondering if that would benefit the hammer as I watched the video. Regardless, I think it's great as is. Thanks again for posting the videos!
  9. That makes sense. I was thinking of my old Chevy pickup, which has 2 tanks, one on each side, but the valve splitting them went bad. So we just put in a brass T instead of replacing the 150 dollar valve, and since the fuel pump is on the right side of the motor, it pulls from the right tank 3 times as fast as the left. Of course that works off of suction, but I wondered if a similar thing would happen here.
  10. Looks good! I do wonder if they will empty evenly, or if the one closer to the burner will empty faster. Maybe that theory won't apply here, but I'm still curious.
  11. No it's not the norm, but alot of people run without them because they think they get in the way. At least that's what numerous people have told me, when I ask why they took them off. I used to not use them, when I was a young fella, but I had a few discs explode and decided I like my fingers too much. I have yet to run into a situation where the guard gets in the way and I use an angle grinder daily.
  12. Well here ya are. I don't recall saying it was remarkable Frosty. I was merely pointing out the fact that I had missed Thomas' sarcasm/humor. I hope your day is going well!
  13. Every forum has an overall personality, comprised of many personalities, so it always takes a bit to get a feel for a new forum. I apologize in advance for any missed humor. I tend to find humor where it wasn't intended and miss the obvious at times. :-)
