Sad how bad some machines were treated

I know that so often I find Lazarus candidates being sold after years of neglect. It’s like they purposely find a leaky spot for their ancestors prize possession and tell it Rust in Peace.

I try as often as I can to bring them back. Really solid machines with some ALC. Aggressive Loving Care.

Re: Points to ponder

JPG,

They won’t like mine. Round head stove bolts through 2x4 present in door and wall, with fender washers and a tac-weld on nut inside, and a tax-weld to the bottom of hinge pin making pin rotate with the section of hinge.

Not impossible to get into, but not easy to do.

Hanging doors

Odd solution I suppose... Out of shims and needing to ensure hinge side of door jamb plumb. 1 3/4” solid core door in sound proofed wall. Cut an Oak board to back custom jamb. Hinge screws otherwise would have not been into anything but soft jamb material. Door jamb in wall was was not plumb. It bow...

Here’s my ‘opening’ question:

Why are indoor hinges more friendly to humans than outdoor hinges?

It’s really quite simple; they have indoor pins.

Lift Assist

No. Though Lift-Assist is a device made by Shopsmith, it has nothing to do with a plastic surgeon.

Re: Which tool do you fear the most?

I respect them all. I have often said that there isn’t one safety device or improvement on a Shopsmith that costs more than a single visit to an emergency room. Yes you can cut off finger(s) even hands with a table saw or even a band saw. Some may be reattached and some may not. That said, the most ...
