    OT: My shop/business was destroyed by Arson; insurance questions

    It’s actually from the original vw/kdf logo. I suppose it’s similar but no. It’s literally not a swastika.. My main customer base is aircooled vw, it’s relevant to the community I work with. I can understand your confusion but don’t tell people it’s literally a Swastika…. Thanks

    OT: My shop/business was destroyed by Arson; insurance questions

    Video footage shows him at a different building then gets spooked after noticing camera. Goes to my complex with no cameras (property management has denied all tenants to put up our own cameras and forced someone to take theirs down) he is also a known person who’s been caught for arson before...

    OT: My shop/business was destroyed by Arson; insurance questions

    Been awhile since I posted. I wish it were for different circumstances. At around 4am 2/1/24 in Orange, Ca. My welding and fabrication shop was destroyed by a random act of arson. Neighboring shops have video footage of a bum on a bicycle go up to my window at around 4am and punch through the...

    Band saw blade brazing

    Ok thanks for the help everyone. I ended up ordering some harris 50n strip that's. 005 thick and flux. The flux was powdered and sort of tan/pinkish powder that you mix with water. I was able to successfully braze a blade! But had a little problem. I put it in my brazer and for some reason was...

    You tried this? What would be the difference between that flux? And black flux. I read several places prefer the black. Thanks so much

    Band saw blade brazing

    Hello. I have a vintage blade brazer, I was wondering if anyone could reccomend what kind of silver solder and flux to use, and a good place to get it. There seems to be quite a few different soldiers. I need it in very thin small sheets. The places I found online seem to be pretty pricey for...

    Question about boring on a nardini

    I was using my buddies lathe for the first time to bore out some spur gears. I believe it's a Nardini lathe. What I noticed was when taking say... .010 on the cross slide, it cut .010 total ID. It was a 1:1 ratio. Is this a common characteristic on some lathes?

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    Another question I have is how to set the belt tention. The motor bolts directly under the vs pulleys, so I can't really slide the motor over to tighten or loosen. Would just basicly have the belts "tight" while motor is loose and completely bolt it down to have it fully tensioned

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    That is not what my variable speed drive looks like. It has 1 set of pulleys that holds 2 belts, where the center moves side to side. It's a very similar setup to rockwell lathes I've seen online, which they were listed as reeves drive. So that's where I got the reeves term from if not entirely...

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    I'm not looking for fancy saw at the moment. I only paid $200 for both saw and filer and a bunch of blade stock. I was able to get the blade brazer working, I just don't know how to use it correctly and what solder/Flux to use. Once it's wotaking it will be a fine saw for my purposes. I...

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    Well that makes a lot of sense. No idea why I never thought about that. Damn. Well luckily I can return motor shouldn't be a big deal. The 1750 is only 1/2hp, I might want to get a bigger one at some point.

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    Well the dial on the machine goes from 450sfpm to 75sfpm. With the 1750rpm motor, I was only able to get the blade to 122sfpm. About a quarter the speed it should have been.

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    I'm not quite sure i understand fully. When I measured blade speed. The dial was set to its max setting of 450sfpm. The belts seemed to look fine within the pulleys nothing seemed too extreme one way or the other. I was able to turn the dial to go through the speeds and all seemed normal. The...

    How to figure out which v belt (reeves drive)

    Sorry I called it a reeve's drive when it's not. I had no clue, does this setup have a particular name? The machines came with 3 4L belts, and one "a51" belt. All are pretty trashed. Obviously not original to the machines. Which is why I asked about which i need. Would those linked adust able...
