Re: Indian Mark's 1911 build

I buddy of mine bought an ol' WWII shaper for cheap some years back. I told him he would never find a use for it. Some of the EDM work you did would have been perfect for the planer/shaper. I must also agree...Those old guys and their old ways created some amasing designs that have yet to be improve...

Re: Deburring????

Norton makes a fine sanding disk in various sizes for dremels or bench grinders. It is similar to a tightly packed scotch-brite wheel. I use a 40 grit to deburr steel and 90 grit for aluminum. The 90 would be great for that piece.

Re: Cutting oils

I've always used Cool Tool 2 for taping and soluble oil for everything else on a manual. My CNC's have always used synthetic and flood coolant. 20yrs ago I met a guy who worked at the UofA. They had mounted a load cell to a chuck and used a 1/2" drill in a lathe. They tested the load to drill a hole...

Oh! Finally! A thread about nothing. Now I can post without disturbing the flow. Usually, I would choose religion or politics, but, this time it's "me,me,me...I,I,I". I've decided to pull the trigger to get back into the business of spring coiling and testing. I've realised a few secrets to understa...

Need chrome & Anodize

I've exhausted local resources. They are all too busy to take on new work. Does anyone know a chrome plating shop and an anodizing shop that I can contact? I don't want to go to the left coast, but I may have to. Thanx.

Re: Rocker re-design for long chop

That sounds like a fair question. The frame does look like it's high in the front as though the front end is simply too long. That would explain the trail and rocker angle.

Re: Air brush painting

I was going to post the link for airbrush-tech.com but the site has been taken down. They had good tutorials and technical data for airbrush, paint & bodywork.

If you find some good links post 'em up for our perusal.
