    Drill chuck

    I pressed buy on one from Banggood yesterday so I guess I'll find out in a few weeks. The chuck on my drill press has always been glitchy but I wasn't too concerned about it. It has gotten real sticky lately and tends to bind when loosening the chuck.

    Hello from south Sask

    Thanks for the tips, Bill. The price seemed a little closer to retail than I would like for a used machine. I'm in no rush anyway.

    Hello from south Sask

    It was an internet joke about different dog personalities I saw. Blue heelers are Australian Cattle dogs and Australians have apparently been known to.....you know.... (insert stereotype here) My dog is pretty sure he can kick your dog's ass. Any time. All the time. He is real good with people...

    HE thinks so, anyway. Had him at the vet for a torn toenail today and the little chubb put on 1 kg in the last few months. February was a bitch, not near enough running with the kennel guests. He'll burn it off soon enough. He's a blue heeler. Dog voted most likely to start an epic bar fight:)

    Drill chuck

    Thanks for the input everyone. This is for the female end of the chuck. YYCHobbyMachinist was right, it's marked J3 right on the chuck. I had no idea these things were that expensive:(. I don't think I paid that much for the whole machine 15 years ago. I can put up with my keyed chuck for a...

    Drill chuck

    So what is the correct way to measure a drill chuck taper? I have an older PA drill press and can find nothing in the manual about what size taper it has. I hate keyed chucks and would love to change to keyless but the measurements I have taken don't appear to match with anything. Skinny end and...

    Hello from south Sask

    In comparison to a varroa mite on a bee, a wood tick would be probably twice the size of the mite on my hand if it was on you. That's not creepy, that's terrifying.

    Hello from south Sask

    The octopus is just a fun one from Thingiverse. The funnel is for the espresso machine. The grinder has a square bin that is problematic to dump into the tiny round espresso holder. I did the funnel in vase mode and it is super flexible. The varroa mites were for my wife. She is a hobby...

    About 1/2 hour southeast between Kronau and Vibank. Any relation to Amy and Jason?

    Hello from south Sask

    Hi everyone. New member from just outside of Regina. No real explanation of the sudden interest in metalworking other than I'm tired of buying expensive small parts to fix stuff that look like they would be more fun to make. I'd rather spend the money on tools than parts. Got a 3d printer last...
