I’m guessing that machine will not be really useful for No.60 drills?
As I recall a No. 60 is 0.040” diameter.....

From another thread:
Quote
-The radial arm drill has been brought inside the shop thanks to Ken Boudin’s telehandler, work by Jerry and Carlos Steinke, and been repainted by Jay Wiley and Nicole Orminski.

Also on the north end of Bay 1, a loft is being built for an air compressor and air dryer.  As of yesterday the loft framing looks to be done, and the flooring nearly done.  Not sure how the compressor will get up there, but I'm sure Brendan has a plan.

Alan had to put in a drill bit and play. Notice the bit next to his shoulder, and he is between the bit and I. Bit was not turning

Folks,
        Are you going to bolt the Radial Drill Press down through the floor? Some shops have had them turn over. I would not want to hear of that happening; you might scratch up all that new paint job!

Has the problem with the rotary phase converter for the shop been solved?  Do we have 3 phase power in the shop?

They are still using the generator. Phase converter is still planmed, but can't come online until the power goes into the building so there is still some time.

Does anyone have this information for Kevin? Alan perhaps?

If you can mount it on a rubber pad, then between that and all the insulation surrounding it, it should be pretty quiet. Every 90 degree turn you can force sound to go around diminishes it by half.

The storage building for the shop arrived last Thursday.

At the shed company before delivery.



Placed next to the shop.

Looks like there's plenty of room to store parts for #11.
