    I remember having to tweak a lt screen. It wasn't cracked either. It got progressively worse and eventually gave up the ghost. Dead lcd's tell no tales.

    So I bought a Fujifilm camera

    I can't remember the model. 16mpix, 40x zoom. A steal, 25$ shipped. Works sometimes too! Just now it wouldn't turn on, via power button or depressing the video button. So I opened the battery cover,...

    Come to think of it I think I nearly did recently, but caught myself. The reason I believe I've never done this is because I looked atlater the traces on a motherboard long ago and figured it out for...

    Often with Intel dual Xeon boards, as I understand it, the 2 cpu's have to be matched in every way. This is why you see matched pairs sold on eBay. Probably also means they were pulled from the same...

    I will proudly accept the designation of village idiot, but I have never plugged those cables in backwards. I am in the habit of leaving cases disassembled, covers off. I once dropped a floppy disk...

    68040 based Macs

    Do the Apple specific chips generally blow? What are the chances that a Quadra say can be repaired apart from needing apple specific ic's?

    Thanks. Any suggestions? I could stand to buy something (Norton Utilities...System Mechanic?) if it were even necessary, being I desperately want to preserve all this crappola.

    I made one for an Emco Compact 5 years ago because I wasn't aware of an alternative. And the steel was free from the job I had then.

    I'd buy the gears if I could. But for that lathe it would be a...

    Popular in 1932. These were popular into the 80s on Austrian lathes:

    I'll take a lantern toolpost over.one of those, but yes a quick change is preferred and most...

    Probably. But what would be.the cost for 1 gear say, ballpark? I guess I could just try and google. It never occurred to me to have gears cut that way.
  13. And what would that cost? The prospect of selling...

    And what would that cost? The prospect of selling replacement gearsets to oh maybe the 30 others owner's of 8" SB's is quite attractive though.

    You know there is a poor man's version of 3d...

    I need whatever it takes to make backplates and faceplates for the new lathe and at least one other. Clearly metal would be ideal. Getting set up to cut involute gears is yet another expense and...

    I need gears. The console is long gone. I didn't want to scrap it. Was just overloaded. A manual mill suits me fine. But cnc does have its benefits.

    My milling machine is a gutted Emco F1. It had an.antiquated (or should I say.vintage, more below) cnc console. It also has metric ball screws. It's sitting on my garage floor currently. Omword the...

    I need 16tpi for sure that's all I know. And myriads of other thread pitches. I may look into that, thanks for the suggestion. I would like to cut my own ... I have a small mill and a headstock with...

    Aren't "plastic" gears usually made of delrin, or am I mistaken?

    I'll find photos of the types of lathes I was talking about.

    Ugh, "big" lathes and hernias don't play well. I'm now the suspicious owner of a vintage 1932 Southbend lathe. Not a complete set of...

    My p4 HP dc6800 has some kind of heat pipe hs with a fan blowing sideways. With ducting. I have to look at it again and take photos. It really is well made, belonging to HPs business side of the...

    A whole science within itself. There are some industrial applications where only babbitt will do.

    Old ball bearings fans are noisy though. Those used in servers at least. High velocity.t
