A few things to consider: Noise levels vary *greatly*. Plastic receptacles pick up odors quickly and they don't tend to go away. Stainless receptacles don't pick up odors, but they will corrode if y

I believe every critical component in an aircraft engine has a rated service life, as required by the FAA. When you reach it, you throw it away. Check the factory manuals or ask a Real aircraft mech

Good question. Though I don't think a basic test of the metallurgy will tell the whole story or anything approaching the big picture: heat treating process or the grain structure of the forging, etc

Sounds like my Daytona MIG. When welding upside down or on a vertical, I've found that adjusting the feed with your 'spare' hand as you weld can be invaluable to getting consistency. It is worth rigg

I enter Sears through the doors that lead right into the tool dept. Above the doors in massive writing: "100% satisfaction Guarantee". That sounds like a warranty to me. Were you 100% satisfied? A fr

That's exactly what you want to look at. BTW, you can't make 6.5 HP with 110 volts! I have a large Sears "portable". It is very heavy and bulky and I have a trouble lifting it. I'd much rather carry

I and most of my friends use the Makita 4" side cutting grinder. They work very, very well. I agree with the other poster that these are a must-have for metal working (and so is the ear protection!!)

I agree that the HP number is bogus, even if accurate. The pump/compressor is still what has to move the air. Ignore the HP claim and focus on how many SCFM it can deliver at 90 psi. Brian -- bkelley

I'd say you're looking for a die grinder, not a "grinder". At least I think of disk grinders when you say "grinder". I have a Makita die grinder that works well. I've been happy with it. The Craftsma
