Re: DIY nickel plating - power source

That's a nice power supply Timm. I bought one planning only electrolysis use, and it doesn't have the fine adjustment to three decimal places. Mine is coarse only, to two places. I'll have to play with it a bit and see if it is capable of holding .30 A. I imagine it can, as it is capable of either c...

Re: Painting a fuel knob.

I've painted a few. Usually I wanted a red wheel and only had black. Be sure to clean it well before painting. Most modern spray paints bond well directly to plastic.
I've had zero issues with paint adherence. Go for it.

Re: Ulf’s “ratty, old milspec”, and a 290

That 290 looks clean! Try a large bulge globe on it... changes the appearance in an interesting way (237/639 size large bulge globe). Your milspec looks like a good user. The milspec is more a novelty to me; I find them just a bit too fiddly to use on a regular basis. I prefer the simple reliability...

Re: OT: buying a vise

I like a smaller vise for Coleman parts work. I'm using a 2.5" Fulton 1825 that I restored. Build date 1907 - 1911, so it's well over 100 years old. Quality vises of this size and age aren't too hard to find, aren't very expensive, and are easy and satisfying to restore. https://i.postimg.cc/7YbFqP4...
