    They seem to give a little better flavor than saltines or bread crumbs. Mom would use the goose eggs up in meat loaf or egg noodles; But a goose egg is to big for just a 1 pound meat loaf

    Those arnt bernards or parallel jaw piers since they open with the jaws parallel thru the whole stroke. At first glance I think they may be for installing grommets in tarps and canvas.

    You lose a lot to the band saw blade. About .040 per cut so every 3-4 cuts youve got a strip in the chip pan. one of the wavy knife edge type bands would be better. A small table top band saw with a rip fence might work.

    Well I got the "experts" opinion at dinner time. Daughter her husband and the 3 grandsons stopped in as I was getting ready to eat. The youngest ( 4 years/old) came over and was looking at my plate so I gave him a bite. Big grin and he ran over to...

    I would start by checking the hammers hit in relation to the face of the nipple also. a lo nipple where the hammer isnt getting a good hard hit may be the problem. A small piece of play dough in the nose of the hammer and fired may show that the...

    Making angle plates, vee blocks and other tooling is much easier if you have access to a rolling saw. The vertical cut off allows you to rough them in in the saw, saving a lot of mill work. I have one set of angle plates 1 1/2" X 2" X 2" with a...

    The granite plates are actually softer than the old cast iron plates and will scratch easier. But they are more stable not affected by heat, weight of the part (deflection)And the pores make spotting easier. I have a 18" x 24 cast iron plate...

    There are cleaners made just for granite plates. Windex works good but not sure if it will cut Prussian blue. Denatured alcohol is very good also. A soft cloth or paper towel and a light dampening of cleaner and rub,till dry. Make a cover with the...
