    I here some noise in boyar shultz spindle. How to know when new bearings are need?

    Just out of curiosity .... Pulled the spindle nose off of mine this morning, in order of appearance ... left hand nut, flat washer, grinding wheel, inner left hand nut, tapered arbor, aluminum dust shield, bearing spacer. This exposed the outer bearing, there wasn't a number I could get off of...

    I here some noise in boyar shultz spindle. How to know when new bearings are need?

    Same Six Twelve Deluxe here too, my spindle noise comes and goes. Would be interested in knowing if this bearing set is still available, very little information on line. The Challenger models are late 60's and 70's, but this is a completely different animal.

    I'd like to take a quick moment to thank everyone for the responses and most of all for the PM's with the suggestions on how to improve my grinding accuracy, it truly is appreciated. I never dreamed anything like this would be such a hit, but I can remember using a full size framing square...

    Thats a great question, Just went out and measured a few: Parallelism from inner fence to outer square = .0008 True 45* = .0009 True 90* = .0008 So to answer your question, no, I am not holding to a half thou :)

    Handy little layout squares

    I posted this to kind of get your creative mind going and thought you would like to make your own, would even be a good exercise for an apprentice. I will make a few sets of the 2" size and see if they sell, they will always make good gifts if not.

    That is a cold blue gun finish, I am still learing the process, gray scotch brite by hand, high PH solvent cleaner, warm the part in hot tap water, wearing rubber gloves the whole time, 30 minute dip in the acid with light agitation, followed by removal into clean water for 30 minutes leaving...

    Handy little layout squares

    I made 3 sets of one piece squares at the shop / 1" set / 2" set / 3" set, I got the idea from a framers "speed square" and I thought some "mini" squares would be handy for layout and mill vice set up. I have been using them for a few days, and gotta say, I really like them. They are made from...
