Yep.
Toby, I'll check with Mike on the gas tips. I sell to him, and don't compete with him for sales of the same items I sell him.

Just troubleshooting a CEL fault on my wife's 2000 Mazda Miata.
"Misfire on cylinder 4". Sounds easy enough. Maybe not! So many possible causes.
Going down the list eliminating the easy ones. Plugs, wires, ignition packs, fuel injector, vacuum leak, compression, etc.
Fun, sure, but rather be working on GPA's!

I don't want any trade secrets but I always wondered how are the holes put in the gas tips? I can't think a drill bit that small would work. Do you drill a bigger hole the swage it smaller?

Dominic, I do drill some gas tips, and I have a very accurate high speed lathe for doing that. I also have drill bits that go down to .004", but the most popular size I keep is .008". When I make generators that have to use a pricker, I use the drills. When I make the Q99s and others that don't have a pricker, like Arc gens, I use a tiny bushing that has the proper sized hole laser drilled in it, and press it in to the gas tip.
The non-pricker generator tips are made differently inside than those that have a pricker in them. In tips that have a pricker, such as Kamplite gens or IL323 gens, I have to actually drill out those tiny holes, because if I use the bushing method on them, the inside of the tiny bushing catches on the pricker wire and bends it. So I have a special tool for making gas tips that have a pricker in the gen. It tapers the inside hole in the gas tip, and then I drill the .008" orifice hole, so the pricker wire has sort of a "guide" to get it into the orifice without it getting bent.
Those little .008" drills are $12 each, and only come in packs of 10. I get about 15-20 orifices out of each drill before they break. I don't use them if I don't have to because of the high failure rate.

Dean, thanks for the detailed answer. I have looked at generator tips for years and wondered about the tiny hole. I consider myself a very good gun repairman and a very poor gunsmith. When it look at things I always wonder how did they make that. I kind of think you work to cheap but keep it up.

Bought a HF 1000 LB Hydraulic cart (25% off) over the weekend. Today I added a larger piece of 3/4" plywood so it would hold lawnmower/tiller//pressure washers/gene's better. Works great. Much better getting the machinery up to my level so at 72, I do not have to go on the floor to service such things. I can sit on a stool with tool cart beside me and not have to get up.down all the time. Everyone should have one of these. Also tried Pine-Sol in the ultrasonic cleaner for carbs & stuff. Works really well.

I got a late Christmas gift from the BG distributor. Enough to preserve 60 gallons of gasoline. (I've tested this stuff out to 80 months and the gas ran just fine in my car.)

Had to replace a couple stepper motors and bulbs on a customer's GM cluster today... I normally give these a Toby rebuild, but this customer is a little tight in the money department. So he wanted to do what was necessary to get by I guess...

Looks like he's going to need an oil sending unit to get his oil gauge reading correctly.. But I bet he puts that off as well.

I enjoy doing these once in awhile just to get out of the dirt and grime.

Good ole Chevy and gmc trucks. I've had to do the same on 2 of mine. I even had to resolder the odometer connections on one of them. That's a common problem with them too. If the odometer doesn't light up, check the last solder joint on the pin.

Rob if you have anymore issues with your led backlighting on your cluster resolder both sides of all these flat resistors. Very common issue on this vintage of GM products. A lot of heat for such little solder connections.

I thought I'd go back in time to this thread from last year. Today I'm going to start cleaning my lantern. I've had it for 15 years and decided it was about time I did something with it. It runs, but as you can see, the poor thing has had a rough life up to now. It's a 4-51, but looks more like 1851.

o Disassembled the T-saw project AGAIN...
o Corrected the belt slot on the T-saw,
o Reassembled - NOW the belt Clears!
o took the old power cord/switch apart - the plug disinterested (one prong fell out...), the white line is crumbling apart - I think this is the ORIGINAL cord only two prongs so no ground (on the old stand I wasn't worried as long as I didn't touch the motor, as the rest was insulated from the motor by the wood stand...) - The switch also stopped working - (looks to be original from the 30's? Art Deco on the switch case...) The cord from the motor to the switch in fine and is three wire so probably from the 60's/early 70's (crown Craftsman logo) I need to verify its grounded inside the motor...
o I spent some time figuring out how and where I want the new switch and what kind to power the saw.

I'd like a mushroom head E-Stop switch, but those seem pretty iffy for inexpensive ones on line... I have a slap off toggle from an old Radial arm I scrapped, so how to do that?:

o I think I've settled on mounting the switch to the folding extension on the "front" side of the saw, and using an extension box for house it, then another extension box on that with a duplex receptacle.
o Power cord to the switch:
o Switch to the receptacle and
o The motor plugs into one receptacle.

This will also allow me to put the extension in the up position and still easily use the switch!

I need the two boxes, and a metal duplex cover (under $10)


The old parts - Plug was rock hard rubber, and the screw fell out that held one blade. the switch is now dead, (I used this saw and switch just recently...) and the white wire is just scary... (Black is still flexible as is the outer sheath? ):
old power cord.jpg

Back side of the old switch:
Back of old switch.jpg

The "New parts as I was deciding what to do for the power and switch:
New power cord.jpg

The Saw where I am now with the new belt ready to start cutting...:
T-Saw Progress.jpg

And the start of the "dust collection" (I need some plastic, and to sort out the vac hose connector...):

Thanks Ken, I like it because its small, and on this stand, even smaller!

I had 2 big 10" Craftsman T-saws, both on one stand I built, and bolted them together for "free" extensions; they had one extended fence slide, with one side for cutting, and the other for dado's and I used this one on its old stand for the ripping and finger jointing, and other small work, so after at least 5 years of non-use I sold the thing to recover space in the garage.

With a long piece of angle iron clamped to it, it works great for long rips and I used that setup to mill badly curved oak Pallet wood straight again. I'd have needed the long angle even on the big setup... It's not much bigger than a Dremel T-saw (top is only about 10X14), and the factory blade rating is 7" (but 7-1/4" blades fit fine) but it cuts close enough to as deep as the 10" as the arbor housing is small (2-1/4" depth vs 3-3/8) For what I do with it its fine.

Its only detraction IMO is the tilting table (I can live with it - I rarely cut angled cuts) and the blade arbor is a bit short, so the wobble dado blades don't fit. I stack 3 carbide blades (slightly staggered) and its 1/4" wide exactly, so that is my standard for my biggest finger joints.

My shop is my home garage, pulled out the boat kicker to keep it tip top for our march camping trip on the trimaran.
The 236 is currently under my chair as a heater.
And don't laugh at my tint, i started to remove it, then it got cold.waiting for it to warm back up to remove the rest (much easier warm).

Got the power sorted on the T-Saw - This whole thing has been a "design in place", as many of my projects are. I'm satisfied with the result - the power switch is in reach with the side table (I guess its now a "front" table) up or down, the legs and supports don't interfere with the cords in use or movement. It's grounded finally, the cords and plug aren't rotting away and I think its actually quieter in this configurations that on the old wood stand:


The power parts (less the cord) - The switch is the "slap off" type (salvage from a Craftsman RA saw) and I wired the poles in parallel so it should last. It needed that rectangular hole do after layout I used the Nibbler to make it so.

The inner holes are for the switch, the outer to hold the first box on.

The second box houses the receptacle, and the black wire goes through the switch. the white neutral and ground goes right to the receptacle.


Switch done - Power ready (I even tested the receptacle with a polarity tester) its height here is perfect for tapping off with my knee if needed.

And in the Up position - still pretty handy

And the Boxes Mounted:

Still a ways to go to complete, but this was the big step. Now its belt guards and dust collection.

Haven’t sliced my fingers up in almost a year so I decided to do a little
Knapping today. Waiting for some R55 generators so taking a GPS break...Gotta find the groove. White is flint, brown and black is mahogany obsidian, other two are Smokey obsidian.

It is a blast! I spent the whole winter two years ago watching all of the YouTube videos on it I could. Then had to practice on glass till I could get to a Flint Knapping event at Letchworth State Park near Rochester. That’s where suppliers/ vendors and some amazing artisans come together. It’s fantastic. They have meetings like this all over if you want to go to one just google what you can for the nearest in your area. You won’t regret it. Lots of reenactors too. Great family fun, usually a camping event. Most of course were canceled last year unfortunately.

Put up a wall bracket so I could display my Estwing tools. Decided they are so aesthetically pleasing that I should take them out of the bottom drawer of my tool chest.

I have 5 gallons of homebrew bubbling away in the dining room. They say it should be dark, so I wrapped it in a coat. My wife named it “Bert”.
What’s the best chemical to clean the crud out of the bottles? I have a couple of weeks to get ready😃

So I got started on the AGM Kampkook 7 Tank I got from TwoCanoes (thanks again TC!) a week ago. Getting the cap off was job one as it was stuck fast.

I just started the disassembly - I got the pump/cap off with a 15" crescent in a vise, and a strap wrench on the tank - No damage, and dumped a pile of rust dust out (bone dry but an unmistakable smell of old gasoline)
Tank Grit.jpg

The tank inside actually doesn't look terrible so I have my fingers crossed there. Cleaning up the pump assembly after I got everything broke loose, and cleaned the first layer of gunge off the brass. Top part is amazingly clean, the inside part has verdigris on the tube. but this is just Phase one:

Before -
KK7 pump-cap before 1.jpg
KK7 pump-cap before 2.jpg

After - This was just with Greazoff and a tooth brush:
KK7 pump-cap After 1.jpg
KK7 pump-cap After 2.jpg

I was curious if the gasket was lead or something else - Apparently "Something Else" is as close as I'm getting? This is what came out, after careful wiping and looking at it under magnification and then careful probing followed by digging with the point of a knife:
KK7 pump-cap gasket 1.jpg
Its a past and I could find NO indication of fibers (Leather?) or any indication it was old rubber. It looked like caked grease more than anything else... Whatever it was, was decomposed...

The Seat (I'm not done yet...)
