    Riffler file recommendation

    What does a bull's foot file look like? Are they different from a riffler file? Did an online search and they seem hard to come by. Ron

    Riffler file recommendation

    Can anyone recommend a set of riffler files for brass work? I had some trouble filing down a protruding bushing this week and could have used one. I see lots on Amazon for wood carvings. Best to get what? Fine, medium? Ron

    Although some would say it is a shame to break up an old piano but sadly they are not worth much. We have a Willis upright and would have to give it away to get rid of it. Having said that, I like what you have done. Ron

    Thinking it through again, is there anything not flammable as a pre-rinse? Ron

    I don't have a dog but I can only imagine. L&R is not super fast heating but certainly faster than 40 minutes. Coleman fuel is easily found in Canada. Thanks Don. Ron

    Ultrasonic question

    I have not given much thought to pre-rinsing and your comments are helpful. I too noticed that the warmer the water the better the cleaning. Bringing the bath up to heating temp is a good idea. Ron

    Ultrasonic question

    First, I have an L&R Quantrex 140. It has a heater and a drain. I use PolyChem Deox-007 as a cleaner and don't do much other than a warm water rinse. Not large but I like it and it does a great job especially on lantern pinions. There are many posts on Ultrasonic cleaners but I could not find...

    Yes, they are expensive but you get what you pay for. Just my two cents. Ron

    Even if these companies claim a one or two year warranty where will the company be in one-two years? With my L&R I know where to send it to if something goes wrong. Ron

    bushing machine plans

    I suppose you could make them but a pre-made set would save time and effort.

    bushing machine plans

    Even if you built a machine yourself you would still have to buy a set of reamers which are around $80. Ron

    Any chance of seeing more photos of benches. I would not call mine a bench just yet but I am looking for ideas. Ron

    I have handled the GX-85. It is a rangefinder style camera, very well built with nice features. I think the 60mm macro was on sale Black Friday for a pretty tempting price. Ron
