    What RPM were you running? Project Farm on youtube did a video on various Annular Cutters and even the cheapest one made atleast one cut through mild steel. Did you use cutting fluid or coolant? The teeth on your cutter look like they got too hot.

    Bridgeport - diagnose and repair noisy spindle

    I’m on mobile so I can’t be fussed to link the videos, but if you look up H&W Machinery Repair on youtube, you’ll find they have 3-5 videos showing how to disassemble and reassemble all the parts in the head including the spindle bearings. To get the spindle out you’ll need to get the power...

    Anyone looking to hire a junior-intermediate Mechanical Engineer?

    Alba 4S Shaper Clean Up

    @Degen Why not stone the ways? They have quite a few high spots from trapped debris raising burrs and what not, surely getting rid of the burrs would be beneficial?

    Alba 4S Shaper Clean Up

    This is the shaper I got off kijiji a few months ago. It has sat since it landed in my garage as I wanted to finish my bicycle frame before starting on this shaper clean up. Note the top-slide assembly and clapper are not installed in this photo. I wanted to completely disassemble it to give...
