    Re: Chop saw vs. Cold saw

    It works fine. The saw may not hold up for numerous years, but the quality of cut is fantastic if you have the correct blade.

    1) R-8 is the interior taper of the spindle. JT33 is a Jacobs taper. You need an arbor to mount the drill chuck to. These are very common.

    Re: Anyone here play with molding plastics?

    In my case, I CNC machined the mold from aluminum - it was from a digital design (ACAD) so the math data was already available.

    Re: Anyone here play with molding plastics?

    I mold urethanes. I started at home, then went commercial and now I am back at my home shop.

    It's quite simple. There's a bit of a learning curve and each compound will have it's own set of dos...

    Those are awesome spindles. I have run commercial routers with those same spindles.

    As far as coming up with a motion system - cruise around on cnczone.com for lots of ideas.

    No. I think I was serious when that was penned. What's the confusion? Is it the fact that I contradicted myself within a single paragraph?

    Re: Chop saw vs. Cold saw

    I concur. The chop saw is great for some things, but mine rarely gets much use. I have found that the higher quality blades work better and there are ways to get it to cut OK, but still not great....

    Re: Chop saw vs. Cold saw

    I have a chop saw, a band saw and a miter saw, and I have used cold saws for numerous years.

    As stated - each has it's strong points and each has it's drawbacks. I don't think there's a saw that...

    Re: In the market for a shop press

    20T minimum if you are only going to have one press. Lots of variables on this, I guess.

    50T would be good for anything you will ever want to push unless you work on heavy equipment or big...

    Re: In the market for a shop press

    My vote goes to building one. You would get exactly what you want this way and a simple H-frame press is a pretty simple thing to construct.

    I also vote for the hand pump. I have used pretty...
