    Tools you waited too long to acquire

    I bought a pair of green Carhartt jeans years ago. I am amazed how long they lasted. They were on their last legs the button hole at the front was fraying badly and the button was pulling out of the fabric. I just could not let them go. I machined out a new button with washers that would clamp...

    Any idea what this type of mount is called?

    I have been working on trucks for 43 years and I have never seen a bushing like that. The voids in the rubber are probably there to make for a softer ride. International uses a bushing with voids in the front cab mounts on the smaller trucks but its a lot bigger and presses into a casting.

    Any idea what this type of mount is called?

    The new oscilloscope showed up today and so far I'm impressed. I compared it to my Iwatsu SS-5706A and they both read very close. The signal generator I used has a tough time with a square wave once over 2 MHZ. The iwatsu probably cost as much as a new car in the mid 1980's.

    Replacement Gear for Craftex CT089 13x24 Lathe

    I am interested to hear the members opinions on how to set the pre-load on the spindle bearings. The method you described where you give the chuck a yank would vary depending on the weight of the chuck and the number of gears that are rotating with the spindle when you yank on it and the...

    I just placed an order for one of the 1014D scopes. It should be here Friday. I was considering a Rigol 100Mhz scope for almost twice the price but I just can't justify the extra cost.
