    Hardness tester

The idea is to strike a ball on know hardness surface and observe indentation size. Then strike on unknown surface and observe size difference. Determine...

    Converting lathe to CNC

    So I am loosing some hope of finding small CNC machines (say under 6000 lbs and under 15hp) and I am looking for small machines to convert to CNC. Parts seem available from China for reasonable price. Results are not "professional" - you cannot turn a 1500 lbs machine into 10000 lbs one but they...

    I googled and googled and I seem to not be able to find the answer to above question. Say you have two 6" 3 jaw chucks from different manufacturers - will the jaws interchange? I will test this theory today on small sample but I am wondering in more general terms. More specifically are the...

    Where to get C02 gas in Calgary (cheap)
