    Stuff my dog says; on second thought I'll just build a race car

    Is it comfortable to sit on?? Is the lower back support too high?? Yes, I am trying to create more upholstery work for you...:hump:

    Is it my turn? Anything to do with lathes, mills and other shop tools

    7205B - Another Option: https://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/advanced_search_result.php?search_in_description=1&keywords=7205B& Select the "Single Row Angular Contact Ball Bearing" option. There is a Budget 2RS version there. The postage options to the US are not too excessive.

    If you use automotive oils the metal will discolor again. These oils contain additives that attract moisture. I have read that chainsaw chain oil is a better choice.

    Here is an example of a 7205B 2RS: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255185049220?hash=item3b6a36d684:g:GA0AAOSwP6phbaCk Postage to the US is showing at about $19. 7205B with rubber seals does not seem very common.

    This particular bearing via UK Ebay ranges from £6.25 to about £110. There are a lot in the region of £15. I wouldn't go for the cheapest, instead I'd try to obtain one from a quality supplier. There may be the possibility that you just use the deep groove bearings and see how they stand up with...

    Thank you Rhy650...:) I've got the baby mill repaired and working now so need some metal to chew on.

    I like it Rhy650...:hump: Does a plan exist for this engine , or is it just put together based on things you have seen? I started to make one in 1974 and again in 2015 but just got side tracked so never finished. Now I have a small milling machine to go with my lathe. I was going to buy the...

    Painting Tins. No really...

    Jim, what do you do to keep the dust down when spraying? Do you put water on the floor? I am just thinking about repainting my bike this Summer. Dust was an issue for me last time. Thank you.

    Whats your weather right now?

    The weather is excellent in Wales. Just did my 4 mile walk up the hills behind the house, blue sky and about 10 Celcius. But don't get jealous, Cardiff is the wettest city in Britain so rain is sure to catch us...:doh:

    I thought cutting the Morse Taper would be a difficult thing, I even tried it once and got very very close without a reamer. I see that Morse Taper reamers are readily available now at quite a reasonable price. Making a DIY spindle has become so much easier - If you have a working lathe to start...

    I assume the 101.212 and the 101.21200 are the same machine - perhaps I am wrong??? I guess you already have the 101.212 manual. If not then here is a link to a copy: http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/222/3442.pdf The exploded diagram Pg 13 does not show a washer behind the bearings. The parts...

    Remember that little red Steiner tractor I had the hots for?

    In the 60s I saw this cute little bulldozer in NZ at Opohe Beach. It was only about 5' long max. I always wished I owned it. Don't even know what make it was. It had steel tracks.
