Up until a few years ago "drilling" a well meant using a drop hammer and bail--now it's all done with rotary units. The rotaries kind of got their start in the well drilling game when some of the...

I'm not sure what the fan has to do with the blowby unless you're saying that you hadn't run the compressor till you got the fan. In any case, a little bit of blowby shouldn't be the end of the...

For the uninformed e4112 is equivalent to AWS 6012--not a common rod in North America. We see lots of 6011 or 6013 but I can't say I've ever run across 6012. If the wheel is really steel then 6013...

I'm wondering why you need the 1/4" or 5/16" tools? Virtually all of my toolholders are 3/4" square and I can't think of anything I've done on the lathe that would have been easier with smaller...

First thought; post some pics of the tools you're considering--some of us are too lazy (or busy) to dig around on the net looking something up for you.

Farmall H tractors are antiques! Not all of them came with PTOs either. And they have a high centre of gravity compared to the Ford 100s or the Massey 135s.

I don't think they're sealed because there is some allowance for bypassing when the damper is fully closed.

Nice job, Jack. Very professional looking. Having done this kind of work for just over...

What temper? 6061-T6 is the most common and it's definitely NOT a bendable alloy. Over the years we've made thousands of bends using 6063 but on the odd occasion that we've been sent the wrong...

Makes sense--the boiler has a flange but you've got to provide one for the pipe beyond the damper. Do these things normally sit in a vertical or horizontal orientation?
