I guess the question to ask then is: "How was the original cable routed and tied down?" If you're duplicating the original installation then you should be OK. I don't like the idea of not having...

Since the wire rope is not moving at the point where it bends it should be fine. I would, however, highly recommend that you get a couple cable clamps and tie the short end of the rope to the...

Another issue you'll have with that repair is the solder--or whatever it is--that's gooped on there. It would have to be completely removed; something which is virtually impossible. I think the...

Virtually impossible to fix that in place. For one thing there's a gap between the two sides which would be very tough to fill. Whoever did the initial installation sure didn't do a good...

Another point to consider is that it is possible to put a decent edge on something made of mild steel...but the edge won't last at all.



Yup, it will be very springy...

I have a couple keyless chucks that I use for smaller drills but when it comes to larger stuff or tapping I always use a Jacobs 16N. For a 1" hole I'd be using a straight morse taper setup...

That appears to be a bit of an unusual design given that the sector gear is a full circle instead just a portion of an arc. Allowing the gear to turn on the pin probably makes it a little easier to...
