Re: Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

This is for long shank carbides with vibration, if the thing is bent it is binned. I put the points in a three jaw chuck, in a bit over what they would be in the hand piece collets and then check for zero at the jaws, then put the dial indicator just behind the carbide head on the shank, then check...

Re: Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

I have 6 Makitas and 6 air grinders going. The new GD0603, IMO, suck. Went through 3 in about 2 months. I have several older Japan units that I keep running, and a big box of junk Makitas. For air I have a couple Dotco, but I have 4 Cornwell air that have been going strong for 15 years. Electric to...

Re: Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

In that video the guy showed a number of carbides that had runout, he could have trued the ones that can be bumped back into line. The burr heads were welded/brazed or w/e they do crooked except the one that I cut down the shaft was mostly. But I wanted a shorter one anyway and for that price, stil...

Works great.
I'm not sure if your joking but that's something I'd like to try :)

Re: Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

Re: Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

I don't get along with electric, tried a couple of times. I vary the speed constantly, electric can't do that. Plus they're bulky & heavy, no good for 8hr porting sessions. Yah I did notice it seemed to be harder on my hands, prob because it's running more compared to letting off the air grinder le...

Porting With an Electric Die Grinder

Well can't say I'm super impressed so far, compared to having always used air grinders but it's still early and I'll deff get some use out of this electric die grinder. https://youtu.be/4QlAn0-1-kU

Re: Lubricating the backs of bearings

The fact that oils gets behind them doesn't suggest anything will flow out really. Lets think this out you got pressurized oil flowing on the front/face of a rod bearing and being shed on the sides, into the crank or another rod. There is still some pressure(reduced) as it exits and that pressure pu...

Re: Lubricating the backs of bearings

Dry & Clean is what has worked for a long time. I think if countless engineers changed to wet, then I'd also give it a shot. That's why I always try and say "My Opinion" or something like that, in my videos with this type of stuff. Still I didn't watch the video, just clicked the link to see who it ...

Re: Ball Hone New Bronze Guides

Most of the import heads I’ve had in the shop over the last few years have had plenty of guide clearance......... often around .002”. Yah, kinda expected these heads to be on the safer(large) side of things and not to last forever But the cost was cheaper than getting a set of other heads I already...
