    4 Jaw Chuck and Indictor

    Honestly, I haven't used a 4 jaw chuck in probably 20 yrs. Why?.....because 2 of my lathes are set up with 6 jaw adjust-tru chucks. They will clamp up with uniform pressure and distort things less with 6 jaws versus 3 or 4, plus the chuck itself can be adjusted on the back plate. This saves so...

    Predator question

    Use # 7 1/2-8's shot. It probably won't take over 4-5 lbs, depending on your handle bar length. Don't worry about it flattening or going to's no being constantly pounded like a ad blow hammer. Lead has much better dampening qualities than steel. Try a gun shop or reloading supply, or...

    How long should shaft bolt for predator 212 be ?

    I guess I wasn't thinking about what is common. I used a 1-1/2 SHCS because I made a counter bored washer/retainer so it wouldn't stick out so much, and give me more room for the TC cover.

    Minibike Cover

    I made one from an old gazebo canvas. For inside use, don't use plastic or a cheap tarp, you need something that will breathe. If you use something that is water tight, it won't let moisture escape.

    Where do you store them all?

    I've had the same problem lately. Back in March, a mini tornado wiped out my toy shed. It was a 8x12 Lifetime Poly Shed(basically like a Rubbermaid), but actually a pretty decent no maintenance building. The high winds basically sheared it right off the floor, and exploded it and wiped out...

    Repairing Fuel Pick-Up Tubes

    It's also a good idea to measure the distance the pick up tube protrudes from the bottom of the carb, and compare that to the distance to the bottom of the tank. You'll want about 1/16" clearance. I had a 3.5 Briggs that all of a sudden would not start, until you used starting fluid, then would...

    JB Weld piston: Dumbest idea of all time?

    Looks like he tore a page out of the "Red Green" playbook. He went to a lot of effort to make a point that it will work....but in the end it is pointless.
