    Brett Fleming at EVT told me he was going to be an importer for Cyclus last winter. Contact him if you're in the US and need Cyclus stuff.

    It's Tuesday here.

    Bought these last week mainly because I needed them in a hurry and they were available locally:


    Taps

    They're "Super B" , made in Taiwan. More info on manufacturer's site here.

    Short version: well what did I expect for $AUD 250 (about $USD210)? They're not Campagnolo. They'll do for cleaning out already cut threads, wouldn't use them to cut a new thread. Similarly the facing tool works well to clean the bondlines on my BB constructions but I doubt it would be up to the task of facing the shell itself.

    The tolerances seem a bit sloppy and there are a couple of minor manufacturing defects that don't affect function but don't inspire confidence: The M12 threads in the (aluminium) body that fit the (steel) handles weren't tapped properly so one handle galled tight. You can see it top left of pic, not fully engaged in the thread.

    When I tried to unscrew it the rubber cover came off off the handle instead. I ended up drilling a 4mm hole through the handle and unscrewing it that way, then re-tapped all four holes.

    I'm going to hide this in here for the true tool junkies to get first dibs on the next batch of Team Issue titanium hammers. You can use "hot hammer" to get a pre-order discount.

    That is sick. I want one and don't have a legitimate need for it!

    I seem to remember you asking me about some light weight tools for a self supported tour you were doing. These things are awesome at driving tent stakes as well. I use mine around the shop daily, great for tapping collets out of the lathe or pretty much anything else you don't need a 5lb hammer for.

    (short version) Just got my Abbey hanger tool. Wow.

    (long version) I don't typically get excited about tools. I got my chain whip and cassette lockring tool last year around this time. Had a slight issue with chainwhip that I suspect will happen again, but I'm not overly concerned. The tools are tools. They do their job. Since then, Abbey has done a little custom rig for me, and I've gotten ahold of the BB press. Both tools. Both do their job. They aren't going to win any awards for their beauty, but they work and do the task they're asked to do.

    This hanger tool, though. Holy shit. Any tool over $100 I'm skeptical of. Better be damn fine to cost that much. That's probably why I've held off on getting this for so long. It showed up today and I'm pretty much blown away with the finish quality and tolerances. It's a little heavier than I was expecting, but everything else far surpasses my expectations. I didn't think I'd ever find something to replace my Shimano TL-RD10. This does.

    Props, Mr Quade. This thing is legit.

    Do you have the original chain whip, all round with a single length of chain? We had issues with those and have since changed the design to something much more robust. I'll stand behind anything we put our name on so if it gives you any more problems let me know and I'll sort it out.

    Thought this could be quick for small fastenersIMG_20141220_124327110.jpgIMG_20141220_124338503_HDR.jpg and low torque requirements.

    I saved my grandpa's 1940s Wilton vise from the collapsed barn over Christmas. I have ordered new jaws and paint but unfortuntely there is a crack in the tailpiece that holds the nut. Does anybody have advise on repairing cast iron or, even better, know someone who can weld it? Local inquiries have not been successful.

    Welding cast iron is difficult (but not impossible) due to the high carbon content. Brazing would be an option but won't be as strong as the original intact material. I'm assuming that you don't want to try yourself and have called local welding shops already. You'll need to keep expanding your search area until you find a welder that has experience with this kind of repair.

    The easiest route may be to abandon the broken hole and make a new one 120 degrees offset unless there is some other feature preventing that.

    It's always nice to have some tools with a family connection, hope you can get it repaired.

    Cheers

    Ken

    Putting new pin holes was recommended to me by a machinist too but unfortunately that isn't a option because the center channel isn't centered in the tailpiece, its offset.
    There is minimal pressure on the pin that goes through that hole; it simply holds the nut while opening the jaws.
    Thanks

    JB weld or a good epoxy might do the trick.

    check the old woodworking machinery website: owwm.org. You would not believe what these guys do with cracked cast iron. generally speaking, I definitely recall some threads about welding/brazing CI. You may have to look around a bit as the search fxn isn't very good.

    that's interesting, maybe that's why modern Wiltons have a pin that breaks if you look at it funny. I would re-drill at a different angle and use a pin with weak points that will protect it a little

    Built a new fab table, thing is a beast. 4x6 foot 3/4" top. There's a spot under there for the plasma cutter as well. I still need to weld some widgets to it for various things but it's pretty well sorted at this point.

    Awesome. I have a wood-handled set of Felos, and the #2 Phillips makes a JIS screwdriver seem redundant. But I'd still like to know what I'm missing, JIS-wise. Where'd you buy the Vessel? I've seen them and Hozans on the Canadian Amazon, but not consistently, and only from wonky-looking sellers.
