    Avoiding the train wrecks isn't much of a problem. Most are caused not getting a part centered, clamped down right, or improperly ground cutting tools. Most of us can avoid these with just a little bit of caution. Regrinding, or sharpening the...

    Traffer, I saw a wreck coming when our so called leaders began expousing that the United States was transforming from a manufacturing base to that of a "service economy"! We have been sold out! A service economy is dead end! What...

    Chris, Thanks again and for the pics! Your point is well taken about even a 5 hp motor geared down and the devastating results if things go wrong. My order of priority will be people, the press and tooling ......... and in our line of work...

    I agree with most of the others here. Do you "need" it? Probably not. Will you like it? Maybe, maybe not. Are they fun? You bet!! I have an older Ruger Redhawk, a Blackhawk, and a Marlin FG. I need all 3 for some silly reason. JW

    Our train wrecks had higher consequences. I'm attaching some pics to this post. In retirement working in my small home shop, most things can be handled by hand, and if it doesn't go right, you just start a new part. Don't know the order these...

    Bought my first one in 1967 (model 57 S&W) & I've had one every since then. Is it better than the 44, nope, is it as good, probably with correct bullets. Shoot a 250 gr. bullet in both & nothing can live on the difference. Took my very first elk...

    Chris, You are likely right on bit size ......... the largest size twist drill in the cut down apple bin of bits was 2 7/8" and the scale on the run of the machine ends at 3". I also understand the reality of boring larger holes and needing to...

    Got a narrow window of sunshine Saturday so I made another Rock Chuck run in a new area packing my XP100 using 40 gr. VMax's & on my belt I had my 8 shot Blackhawk 327 magnum. This time I had the 327 loaded with the Miha HP bullet that most are...

    I have a few pounds of the square flake Turk powder. I'm thinking of using around 42 gr., for a velocity of around 2450 fps in my .375 H&H. That load leaves quite a bit of space in the case. I'm thinking WC 860 or WC 872 as filler. Anyone see any...

    Don't have to imagine it, I've done it, and been lucky. First thing you learn, and learn fast, it to stand out of harms way. Safety glasses, protective clothing and steel tow boots. Sometimes that just isn't enough. When something breaks, or...

    Looking at the pics again and you should be able to drill with a high speed drill up to 3" in steel, bigger with a spade drill under coolant. Boring, 6" with a heavy cut, and much bigger if you want. You have a honest mid sized radial there. ...

    It sounds like you made a great find. I also understand you are happy with the trigger ..... 2.5# is nothing to sneeze at if it's crisp. But just for point of reference if it's a three screw or the older four screw, you can set the creep to make...

    Mark, for $500 you sure did well. Most likely because most folks won't have a place to put it or the 3ph to wire it. Getting a look at it on the lowboy trailer, this one is most likely to big for the soft rubber feet. I like the table, good size,...

    Chris, I did put the press in our hay barn but was not planning on running it there. First, there is no power so I'd have rig up our 3ph generator. Second, we'd have to rig up some sort of temporary base to mount it on and all of that would...

    That's why the pads that are so oversized for the actual weight. ( twice what's required for the weight ) Worse position for weight distribution would be during a setup where you would swing the arm to the rear 90 degrees clearing the table for...
