I picked up a very lightly used Esab Sentinal a few months ago. Have only used it a couple times, but pretty impressed so far.

Dead level is good, a lot of the old time carpenters actually say that a slight downslope towards the toe of the stair is even better. I remember an old family friend talking about that, who was a...

I would have thought the same way. Guess it all depends what the construction and quality of that regulator is. What’s the output pressure on the regulator in the plasma? Maybe there’s an issue with...

Growing up, with a father that was a mechanic, I had easy access to his compressor. Being a 5hp, two stage, Webster, I think it ran around the 165-170 PSI...

Where I wanted one like this is for what I was taught as ‘side wheeling’. By dressing the side of the wheel at a slight angle, maybe 2 degrees in from vertical, it creates a slight cup. Now the side...

At the back of the spindle ‘head’ are three button head screws. These can come out. There is also a dowel to line things up that does show in the picture.

This allows the notched index plate to...

The black knob attaches internally to a gear, which, through a rack, moves the diamond ‘sideways’ at the set angle. There’s a setscrew going to a...

Harig Tru-dex

So a while ago I was looking for one of these, and ended up getting one from a dealer in the US.

Nicely done!

Used to get into some wierd angled holes like that. A small ball nose end mill is sometimes better than a centre drill. Or sometimes a slot drill/endmill to make a small flat first....

I’d never seen an adjustable countersink until you posted that, good to know.

From what I understand that is the normal use. These were being used to replace a knurled, pressed in stud on thin aluminum. Sorry I can’t post a pic of the actual bolt in use.

The extra base plate is a nice touch, would make for easy clamping when needed. Steps in jaws are nice, something that I’ve never done, generally I have lots of access to parallels though.

Custom countersink

Fairly easy to do. Just remember if it’s something that spins, aim for the centreline, and have relief. If it’s on a lathe then the toolholder will allow the adjustment for centreline.

After that a few strokes with a file to...

After cleaning up the flux. The second picture from the end, shows the step I milled, to the same depth as the insert. This puts the cutting edge on the centre line.
