Fine-Tuning of a Drill Press

fine tune the position

When you purchase a new drill press, a secondhand one or you are left with one from granddad, you must occasionally inspect its accuracy. If you’re left with a conventional, sharp tad, your press should sprint progressively, as well as it should drill new gaps.  On the other hand there are mainly three matters that can stop highest functioning in your press: shaking, play plus vibrate or run-out.

Removing the Pulsation

Shaking generally begins at a press’s energy method.  

If you feel tremor, expose the top protector, switch on the machine also observe if the pulleys run efficiently plus get rid of noise by the whining of the belt.  

If that doesn’t work smoothly, kill the power, remove the belt, plus observe its condition.  

Change the belt if it has bumps or cuts and is weak.

Then,  manually hand  turn  the  pulleys  to  see  if they  have  any  flaws  or else  are out of set.  

Next, attempt retightening the pulley’s setscrew prior to replacing one that wobbles.

If you find any kind of rumbles or growls when the pulleys are spinning, dirty or worn, you should change the bearings and indeed this will solve the problem.

Eliminating the Quill Side and Spindle End Play

The Quill Side Play

A press can construct side play amid the peak molding as well as the quill.  

If you want to inspect for this, decrease the quill, then wobble it, not the chuck though, as of side to side to observe exactly how ample slack present is.

There would be a screw locknut that will let you tight the splits collectively to take some of the play out, if the top molding is divided at the face.

A remedy for side play is unlikely if your press has a hard top.

The Spindle End Play

For the inspection of spindle end  play,  lock up  the  quill,  as well as  try to  transfer  the chuck  up  and  down.  

If you come across  end  play, the loose is possibly amid the  quill,  plus  the  collar  over  the  higher quill bearing.  

Loose the collar’s setscrew, plus slide the collar back to its first location to fix this problem.

A plate will be on the face of the head to retrieve the collar, if you’re lucky enough.

If you are not lucky enough the feed lever as well as the pinion will have to be detached alongside with releasing tension off the quill’s arrival spring.

Let a professional do all the work if your machine’s instruction manual does not shield how to disband the spring gathering, so this procedure is somewhat tricky and dangerous.

Some More Info Regarding Batteries

Entirely all batteries, irrespective of their interaction, self-discharge. The amount of self-discharge hinges on in cooperation with the kind of battery besides the stowing temperature the batteries get open to. Nevertheless, for an upright guess, wet-flooded, deep-cycle batteries do self-discharge, roughly 4% each week on 80°F. Once charging lead-acid batteries, the heat must not surpass 120°F. At this time the battery ought to be removed from charge and permitted to cool off, in advance of restarting the charging procedure.

Lead Acid Batteries are Recyclable

  • Lead acid batteries can be 100% recycled.
  • Lead is the greatest reprocessed metal in the realm nowadays.
  • The plastic cases and coverings of timeworn batteries are defused, reground and consumed in the production of fresh battery holders.
  • The electrolyte could be treated for reprocessed surplus water usages. In certain circumstances, the electrolyte is cleansed and recycled and vended as battery quality electrolyte.
  • In extra cases, the sulfate matter is separated the same as Ammonia Sulfate, then expended in manures.
  • The dividers are frequently cast-off as fuel basis for the reusing course.
  • Check trolling motor reviews

Recycle Timeworn Batteries

Long-standing batteries might be given back to the battery store, locomotive facility station, a battery producer or additional certified assortment centers for salvaging.

Upgrading the Machine’s Battery to a Fresher Chemistry

NiCad, NiMH and Li-Ion befall every single basically dissimilar technology, besides cannot be replaced for some other, lest the machine has been pre-designed via the industrial unit to receive further than single sort of rechargeable battery. The variance amid them curtails from the element that every technology needs a dissimilar charging outline to be correctly recharged. Consequently, the handy machine’s charger should be appropriately shaped to conduct a certain category of rechargeable battery.

Jerk Start the Battery by Booster Cables

The instructions of remaining cautious in the presence of batteries are intended to diminish the eruption danger. Hold flickers, blazes and cigs far from batteries on all occasions. Both batteries had better be of equal voltage, 6, 12, etc.

Secure Booster Cable Process

When jerk starting, constantly put on suitable eye shields and under no circumstances incline towards the battery. Do not jerk start an impaired battery; scrutinize equally both batteries earlier than joining booster cables. Be surefire outlet plugs are fitted and even. Be certain that the automobiles are not contacting and that both start controls are in the off spot. Switch off each and every single electrical apparatus, such as lights, radio, windshield wipers, defroster, and so on.

The resulting moves should be monitored precisely.

1. Join positive (+) booster cable to positive (+) terminus of the discharged battery.

2. Join extra edge of positive (+) cable to positive (+) terminus of the secondary battery.

3. Join negative (-) cable to negative (-) terminus of the secondary battery.

4. Create last joining of negative (-) cable to engine mass of the held up automobile, far from carburetor and battery.

5. Make definite that cables are free of fan sharp edges, straps and additional stirring fragments of the two engines.

6. Start off the vehicle and do away with cables in opposite arrangement of the links.

My Children


My Children,
You are my Arrows. ” Like Arrows in the hand of a warrior so are the children of your youth”. It’s 3am and I’m feeling very Thankful for my Family this morning. Lori You have been by my side for the last 40 years( I round off). You are Faithful, Wise and Beautiful. I would not have made it this far without you.

Would I Wed couples who are already pregnant or having children before Wedlock?


My answer is a big YES.

If they come forward to ask for mercy and they want to marry? I will not only forgive them, I will marry them and blessed them so others can also come forward or would you rather they go to hell or live in condemnation?

Thank God, thank God for Jesus Christ, who has loved us. The Bible said in Romans, that while we were yet SINNERS Christ died for us.

Jesus Christ saved the woman caught in adultery and said to her go and sin no more, if she was caught in adultery, it means the man is married right? It should have been the man to be stoned and not the woman.

Anyway, Jesus didnt say I love you but you are on you own because you have been openly shamed. That is what this most pastors do, and many many hypocrite christians.

They want to wash their hands off you when you are shamed openly.

There are people in churches who are more guilty than those having sex before marriage.

I do not advocate fornication, adultery or any sexual imoralities but MOST CHRISTIANS ARE GUILTY OF FORNICATION AND ADULTERY. And God is still mercy.

I no the Bible says none who are gulty of these charges will enter into heaven. But while they are still here on earth, let us retify and put things straight so many people can enter into heaven.

The devil is a wicked lawyer, but we thank God for Jesus who is our advocate before our heavenly father.

Please dont allow people to die in their sins because of your pride and sending out messages that will confuse people.

Regardless of what you might think, many christians will continue to have children outside wedlocks

The Bible tells us that love covers the multitudes of sins. If you cast them away, who then will help? Certainly not the world. Church is a gateway as spiritual hospital and being treated we become perfect.

Just because am not commiting adultery or fornication doesnt give me any right to judge and condemn others. Loving people but allowing them to carry on in condemnation of their sins is not love. Sorry I disagree.

Placing and Expending a Counter Top Drill/Mill for Gun Usages

If you happen to be interested in a little bit of milling work to your own guns or weapons, you need not have loads of money to invest in a large workshop and an expensive drill press with costly appliances. For cutting front and rear sight dovetails, milling the rear of a slide or cutting out its front cocking grooves, you don’t require a heavy-duty floor stand milling machine. All you need to buy is a 12 Speed Drill/Mill machine and you are good to go. I didn’t have much with me so I purchased 42976-3VGA, which unluckily isn’t available any longer but don’t worry, this same drill comes in other similar models.


Description of 42976-3VGA

This Drill/Mill is a combination of drill press and vertical milling machine with a swivel head that is heavy duty enough. The head also lifts and drops on a row to alter for diverse dimensions of work hoard. Keep in mind that many multi- function mechanisms such as this execute each task more or less, but not reasonably as fine as a devoted apparatus.


  1. Before bringing in your drill press, you should have a workbench to mount your machine on it.
  2. You can go for a 4-drawer workbench with pegboard back. 
  3. Ensure that the bench top is made of fiberboard. 
  4. Fiberboard has a tendency to soften when it gets damp, and milling requires using cutting oil, so laminate the top and edges.
  5. Carbide-tipped laminate trimmings will really make the job easy and professional.

Unpacking and Mounting

  1. This drill press arrives in a wooden box and takes about 30 minutes to unpack.
  2. The machine is liberally coated with Rust Preventing Oil, i.e. RPO, so it has to be cleaned first. You will need some good machinery cleaner and paper towels to clean it.
  3. Now, comes the lifting part where you’ll require the services of at least 2-3 people to carry it towards your workbench, as it is quite heavy.
  4. The machine comes with a tray for holding chips and oil.  It has 4 holes for the fitting screws, so I used it as a model to drill holes in the workbench top. 
  5. To inhibit the tray from budging while placing the machine, drill 2 holes on both sides of the tray for an 8 wood bolt.

Instructions for Operating

  1. There are dissimilar kinds of tapers and this machine has a Morris 2 (M2) taper.  The 3-jaw chuck and taper must be mounted by swiftly putting the assembly in position in the spindle.  It must not be connected with the draw bar. 
  2. The chuck is intended for drilling, not milling, and the sliding compression of the drilling act clamps the taper in point. 
  3. To take out the taper, bring down the spindle till the drill drift notch is evident, inset the drill drift and knock it with a hammer. 
  4. The chuck and taper compilation should fall in your hand after merely a reasonable blow on the drill drift.
  5. Milling bits should be connected to the spindle using a collet. A collet is a split cone with a hole in the mid to take a milling bit. 
  6. The angle of the cone equals the taper in the spindle. 
  7. The back of the collet is looped to take the draw bar. 
  8. The collet is fastened on the draw bar, the shank of the bit is implanted into the end of the collet, and the whole compilation is enclosed into the spindle. 
  9. A nut and washer is at that time fixed to the topmost of the draw bar.  Once this nut is moderately tightened up it pulls the collet higher into the taper, which clasps the fingers of the collet to grip the bit firmly in position. 
  10. The draw bar ought to be well-fitting, not close-fitting, so as slackening the nut and hitting the top with a mallet can effortlessly detach it.


Regardless of whatever the so called specialists utter, you can execute guns work through a bench-top milling machine.  The appliance must be hefty and steady enough to achieve the accurate work essential for weapons.  Likewise, you require having the suitable gauging gears to guarantee your work is accurately aligned, and when compulsory, transfers an exact expanse.  There’s not anything like the fulfillment of undertaking a work yourself, and performing it soundly.


It became more and more difficult in our days to achieve and keep an united vision about ourselfs and about all the things around us. As a small children we were acting and watching the world around us with all the powers of our souls (mind, will and desire), in complete unity. Unfortunately now, as adults, from the great number of all the feelings of our hearts, just two of them are reflecting still this state: the love and the hate. Just in this two we are completly ourselfs: good or bad, white or black, hot or cold. Between white and black… just an infinite number of shades of grey… and contradictions!
The difference between „I love It” and „I like It” is much bigger than we can imagine…
It is the difference between Heaven and Hell. The first one it is a gift, the other one, the result of our „personal efforts”…
For the War Lords of the ancient times, the succesfull arrow’s shooting in battle, it was considered as a gift from God much more than the result of their personal archery skills. When it is about life or death, just their Creator can help us… just God, Who are mastering them completly, can let us to kill or to be killed, to live or to die.
Ofcourse, we need (like our warrior ancestors as well), to practice hard in order to achieve the correct technique… But our personal archery skills should be sustained with the unified vision of our mind and with the deepest feelings of our heart.
We can learn the correct technical forms from an enough good archery teacher, but the true knowledge about life and death consists in achieving the gift of love in our hearts and rejecting from there the hate.
We should practice archery with the secret and constant desire of changeing the atittude of our hearts from „I like It” to „I love It”. Since love it is a Divine gift, we need to ask for it with „all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength”.

FDA updates blood donor deferral policy

This paranoid and completely flawed bit of nonsense, in response to the overdue lifting of the ban on blood donations from gay people, is suddenly making the rounds tonight in the hemo world, and I want to address and end it now, before it grows.

I actually have hemophilia AND I survived the hemocaust. My experience is first hand, and though I didn’t contract HIV I did get hepatitis. I’ve buried too many dear friends to count, and having lived with tragedy and death from my earliest days still greatly affects me. Speaking from that perspective, I have to say that I find it deplorable to exploit what happened to us by using it as a soapbox from which to express homophobic and wholly unscientific fears.

Gay donations absolutely will not put us, or anyone else, at risk. They aren’t even what caused the hemocaust. There was virtually no blood screening in the 70s, and donations were solicited largely from extremely high risk drug addicts and prisoners. Their contaminated blood was all commingled with clean donations, infecting it all, and that tainted pool of blood was used to make factor. The hemocaust happened because of industrial negligence, ignorance, greed, and putting technology into practice before it was ready, not because gay people exist. As a survivor, I’d really appreciate it if people who weren’t even around then would get educated about its realities before using our plight to spread their bigotry and irrational fear.

TL:DR – My hemophilia is not an excuse for your homophobia.

“First let me go ahead and say if you know me you know where I stand on this “equality” issue. But that is another ball game. I know in my heart what is correct and what values I will pass to my child, in which I hope he will grasp and pass on to his children. However when our government lifts a 30 year ban on gay men being able to give blood, you will most definitely see my tail feathers get ruffled. Which is exactly what happened today. Why why why if you are a gay man (knowing you have a higher risk of HIV and other diseases) would you want to give blood? My child has hemophilia and his blood does not clot. Hello? I infuse a clotting factor in my child every other day. Thankfully his factor is man made at this time. But who knows if he will ever need plasma or a blood transfusion. FDA do you want to now ensure me that I will not infect my child with a disease that could have been prevented if you did not fear that it would “offend” someone by changing something that was set in place to protect the general population 30 years ago? Hello a HIV/hepatitis outbreak DID happen in the past and CAN happen in the future! I will speak out about this, I will advocate for my child. I will not set back and be silent about this. I am a moma bear and I’m on a mission. Share this status and please please be aware if you ever need whole blood products of any kind!”
