Re: Mt2 tooling adapter?

Hah, I have you all beat. I need 3 different drawbars for the Producto-Matic Horiz Mill. 5/8-11 for the #40 NMTB holders, M16x2 for the metric #40 holders and the 7/16-20 cut on the end of a 5/8 rod for the #40 to R8 Adapter. Oh and there is a slide on spacer for the NMTB drawbar for the non-NMTB ho...

Re: Reading deg min and seconds

Remember this rotab from Small Tools in Euclid OH? I don't know the accuracy but I was impressed with the size.

Re: Min-Its center finder

Feel free to stea...um, copy the design. It isn't proprietary by any means. There are 2 versions: 1 with a DI and the other with a DTI. CI - Sheet1_Page_1 RED.jpg CI - Sheet1_Page_2 RED.jpg Yes, there is a complete set of drawings and models made in SolidWorks 2008. They are easily imported into OnS...

Re: Min-Its center finder

Beats the heck out of the one I tried to design. Way too wide. CI WITH DTI MODEL.jpg Never made this one because it didn't look right. Center post and probe rotate with chuck. Horizontal arm can be stationary and rises and falls with eccentricity. Sort of like the Blake but different. (counterweight...

Re: Min-Its center finder

AND it is short, too. Doesn't take up much 'Z' space. The coax indicator I have is 6" from the chuck grip to the end of the shortest probe. It also has a centerpunch probe, but I have never used it.
Good find. Does it have a manufacturer name?

Re: Frustration...

This situation happens also when a mechanic is dealing with an engineer, not taking their value away but when it comes to put things in practice is it an issue because a lot of them only know theory and do not have a know how to practice. Mostly true. When my dad took engineering at OSU in the late...

Re: Brown and Sharp Micrometer

A fixture was built that gripped both the spindle and the barrel separately, and a spanner nut was built. The fixture was made of oak so that it wouldn't damage the micrometer finish. The steps to adjustment were: 1 - install the spanner nut on the end of the mic cap end cap spanner nut s.jpg 2 - gr...

Re: Brown and Sharp Micrometer

Ronald: I sent a retired colleague of mine who taught Machine Shop your question, and here is his reply. I finally got a "round tuit" and am trying to adjust the micrometer. If your friend is available would you ask him if the cap on the Brown and Sharpe micrometer is right hand or left hand thread?...

Packing Foam

I am looking for a source for the (relatively) thin sheets of white close celled foam similar to Kaison foam. I have looked on all the obvious websites and have not found what I think I am looking for. It is the stuff one gets from the VFW to help prevent damage to the various pens etc. that they se...
