Fasteners by the keg

Used to buy 3/4 - 10 x 2" long bolts by the keg (qty was 550). Our supplier seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth. Prices I'm finding elsewhere seem about triple what we were paying.

Anyone able to offer a suggestion?

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.

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

The advantages and disadvantages between G92 and G

The advantages and disadvantages between G92 and G54 to G59
G54 G59 is set to the coordinate system before processing, and G92 is set in the program of the coordinate system, using the G54 ~ G59 is not necessary to use G92, or G54 to G59 will be replaced, should be avoided, as shown in table 1.
Table 1 G92 and work coordinate system '
Note: (1) when using G92 set the coordinate system, and then use G54 to G59 does not play any role, unless the power-off restart the system, or then uses the G92 to set the desired new workpiece coordinate system. (2) using the G92 program is finished, if the machine did not return?
The origin of G92 set, start the program again, the position of the machine becomes the new workpiece coordinate origin, accident prone. So, I hope readers with caution.
