  2. AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Yeah, I went cheap for the ones dedicated to the Taig. The Craftsman set I have is rarely used and pretty much never used on any airplanes.

    I just replace with new if the threads are damaged on...

    Re: ACF-50 is some great stuff

    Took me 12 years to go through a gallon. Most of the large volume use was fogging entire airframes.

    Last time I bought this it was $122. This time it was only $77

    I was suspecting I might be able to use that tool after grinding the bottom away a bit. Thanks!

    I know Jason has been doing pretty good based on what Iíve seen on Facebook.

    He probably doesnít have time to work on this but thereís always a chance in the future! You never know. :LawnBoy
  12. Re: AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    In regards to raising the lathe up a bit, this is a clever idea! The drawer could be quite useful too.

    Thanks! Iíve contacted that seller for a shipping quote to the USA.

    Iím no dummy and will heed all precautions for safety. Hand propping an airplane is similar in my mind. You NEVER break the...
  14. Re: AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Hey, that could work!



    I had a feeling I had it mounted wrong. Iíll try again in the other position.

    And thanks for the direction on the use of a file on the internal bore. Iíll have to...

    :thumbs: I tried some well worn maroon scotchbrite, but I bet some new stuff would work great. Thanks!
  17. Re: AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Brian, Iíd be sorely disappointed if you ever got rid of those lathes based on your coffee can thread! I already know that dipping my toe in the water with the Taig is going to eventually end up with...
  18. Re: AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    I wouldnít even know where to begin, Pete!

    Step 1: contact Brian or Pete to commission them to build it.

    Step 2: send PayPal

    Step 3: Wait for package

    John Bentley is a phenomenal craftsman. Here is a 1/8Ē scale Taig lathe he made as his first project on his mill!

  20. AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Brian, I would have had to learn all of that the hard way, as I didnít think of offsetting the tail stock at all. Thanks!

    Itís a bit ambitious at this point, but I really like these tool post and...
  21. AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Crazy busy week at work so I havenít had time to experiment on the lathe, but Iíve stocked up on so fun stuff instead.

    First I bought some 1/2Ē round cold and hot rolled mild steel.

    Re: Thunderhill Raceway Drone Video

    Yeah I was bummed. I havenít been to the track in a couple years. Heck, the only riding Iíve done for the past 1/4 year has been commuting (besides a few hours at the Pepito rally).

    ^g

    I 100% agree. I have a few examples of this myself, Brian.

    A key fob that has been on my airplane for 26 years.

    A cheap Yamaha guitar that Iíve been playing for 35 years.

    Hallmark is on point! Every year they do a different GA aircraft and I used to obsessively collect them each year.
