Now that the auction is over I figure it is ok to post this one here. Thomas Auction just liquidated the following plant http://thomasauction.com/auction-details.asp?id=348 and from speaking with folks during the preview they were going full out till very recently making parts for Pratt and Whitney. Many of the people at the preview were saying they got caught passing along materials with fake certs and bad titanium. Anyone know what happened there? Watching the webcast they said they were pulling all computers from the sale for use as evidence!

By the way, if anyone attended in person were they handing out free liquor to their high bidders. I can't for the life of me understand some of the bids I saw. Here's a bargain someone paid $450 for this lot? https://cdn.globalauctionplatform.co...b5/540x360.jpg. http://thomasauction.hibid.com/lot/1...=1346&selCat=0 or this guy Fowler 74 225 555 LCD Digital Depth Gage | eBay I saw go for $200.

In the old days people used to buy stuff at these auctions to sell on eBay, I think if Thomas auctions was smart they would allow people to start buying cheap junk on eBay to consign at their auctions! Anyhow those were a few comical egregious things I saw there but it seemed like most of what I was watching went real high. They had some awesome piles of tooling there that was a true guess as to how much was inside.

Surface Grinder Plane Blade Sharpener Designs?

I was thinking of a tooling plate with guide pins mounted on tilting locking trunnions as a woodworking plane blade sharpening fixture for my surface grinder. Does such a thing exist? Any other designs out there? Restoring a Stanley block plane, 2 Ohio Tool Works Jack planes, and a Dunlap No.6 Plane. Also have a rabbit and smaller Dunlap I *Might* clean up, but restoration I'm not sure of. Just want to be able to easily sharpen the blades, doing them by hand isn't working out too well for resharpening later on as I forget the angle I sharpened them to. (Changes with the angle of the iron) And yes, I have one of those angle fixtures, It's a piece of junk.

Thanks!

What is the best manual lathe

I currently work for a plastic molding company & we are expanding into metal production and mold making. I'm am shopping around for the best bang for the buck on these manual machines. There are so many different brands out there & thought some of you guys could give me some input. I have built plastic injection molds for 15 years, so I am familiar with these machines, but I just want some advise from others. I have a budget of $10k for each machine. Do I stick with built in the USA or do I chance it & try import machines. I have heard good things about Grizzly mills and lathes, but I'm open to your opinions. Any insight that you guys have would be appreciated. Thanks

New Ford f150 pickup is "military grade aluminum

I saw a tv ad for the new Ford f150 pickup. they said the body is made from military grade aluminum. Then I saw an ad for the new Chevy pick up. it is made with"rolled steel" Just like submarines are made from rolled steel. It had a picture of a submarine in the ice as a background. I thought Russian subs were titanium?
I guess Billet is passe now?

Linearly moving a 5mm x 1m rod along it length

Looking for ideas.
I need to move a 5mm (19/32) x 1m (36) rod along 90% of its length. The drive for the rod is fixed at a single point and the rod needs to move freely both forward and backwards without interference. The rod will be in a fixture where it is supported. I considered using a low rpm motor with a Pinion Gear but I cant find a corresponding geared tube - needs to be round and not square. The rod will encounter some resistance so a non-geared solution may not work.
Someone on the forum must have solved this or a similar problem before. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Machine Tool Arbor Spacers

Anybody out there inventory arbor spacers in wacky thicknesses? I need four different spacers for a .875" shaft, ranging in thickness from under an inch to right around 1.250". But the exact widths aren't "nice" numbers (for example, 1.013).

I realize I have the following options, as well:
1) Make them myself (which I might end up doing)
2) Assemble a "set" of off-the-shelf spacers to equal the desired amount (however this is a production environment where changeover is key, so reducing parts helps maintain friendliness between us engineers and the tool crib guys).
