Re: Reading deg min and seconds

I think the op has moved on from this insanity.

But it should be mentioned that precision does not equal accuracy. No matter how many divisions there are, for example, if the table has half an inch of slop in the bearings, it's gonna produce crap results.

Re: Reading deg min and seconds

... Could not find any instruction manuals in the files for the rotary table and will have to use trial and error to sort out its operation. Is equipped with two different crank handles, one for the tilt and one for the rotation of the table. several different holes for the location of the rotation...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

I've had to wear a mask much of the week visiting a customer where their policy is to do so. Fortunately I was able to remove it once everybody was in their seats at least 6 ft away from me and each other. But while I was wearing it, the device worked great. It still needs a little tweaking to stay ...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

John, I'm not going to debate the efficacy of masks with anybody here. This isn't the place. If you want to discuss that, we can do so in the Junk Drawer. Once it became a political topic, all logic went out the window. I'll just say that when you exhale more than the mask can pass through itself, t...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

John, you are absolutely correct. However, the air escaping around the mask is also not filtered, so this does at least force that air out a direction other than toward the glasses and down the neck. If the presence of a designed exit for air is not permitted, then these definitely are not for you! ...

Re: Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

It works pretty well. Thing is, the better a mask fits, the worse the issue might be. On the other hand, a mask that doesn't conform to the nose can only be helped so much. I don't have much of an issue with my glasses fogging most of the time, but if I have to carry a box from one end of the plant ...

Eyeglass worn with mask fog getter ridder of-er

My son and I were discussing the fact that so many people have problems of glasses fogging up when wearing a mask. My GF insists it's because people don't know how to wear a mask, but that's another argument. That was after she accused me of making up problems so we could solve them. Anyway, yesterd...

Re: 9729 control knobs

... Personally, I have found it faster to whip out my own knobs than to seek them out, order them, wait for delivery. I could have made a few nice knurled knobs with set screws in less time than this thread has lasted. But to each his own -- this is a hobby, so do what YOU enjoy! :D Additionally, s...

Re: Min-Its center finder

Neat tool. Looks like about what you do with a piece of bar stock between a center in the ts quill and a punch mark on work in the 4 jaw. Probably better accuracy than a cheap coaxial indicator.

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? --earlgo Not sure how short it is. If a last word is ab...
