  1.  

    Friend of mine ran up this neat little item that is perfect for center drilling round shafts in sizes from 3/16" to 1/2".  There is a 'V' notch for larger round stock.  This jig allows you to drill a pilot hole quickly.  

     

    If you've ever changed out the brake rods on a mechanical brake system you know how many cotter pins have to be drilled.  BRASS CAR guys should definitely have one.  I've also found it very useful for throttle linkage and just anything that requires a cotter pin.  It also came in handy when I had to make odd-ball clevis pins.  The dimensions are 1" x. 3".  It is hardened.  I paid $60 for mine.

     

    Walt Federline in Frederick, Maryland, is making them.  His number is 301-695-9110.  www.federlineproducts.com/

     

    I used it yesterday to pin a sleeve on a shaft.  Perfect.

  5. Have a Barrett Equipment Co. (St. Louis, MO) Drum Doktor.  Before disc brakes there were these things called brake drums.  Yes it's true and this machine is for resurfacing these selfsame items.  Attachments, mounted to a rolling table, operational and in fairly good shape.  This is for pick up, in that it is large.  Located in the Frederick, MD area. How about $475.

  6. I have a pair of "split" rims and wheels.  Rims are Firestone #10E4, 34X4 1/2, used on Case, Haynes, Holmes, Hudson, Maxwell, Peerless, and others.  Rims are pitted where they sat, but they are sound as are the wheels.  Wheels were manufactured by Swartz.  The hubs take a 2 9/16" hub cap.  Asking $350 for the pair.

  7. I wish I could remember the details, but it seems there was a gentleman in California several years ago that had converted his non-condensing Stanley to LP. There was a leak, the car caught fire, he was killed and several of his passengers were severely burned. Again, I can't remember the details.

    Got this on line:

    1gal. Propane = 91600 BTUs

    1gal. Kerosene = 135000 BTUs

    To heat 1,000,000 BTUs it would cost:

    10.91 gals of Propane x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu)

    7.4 gals of kerosene x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu)

    Remember this is at 100% efficiency.

    If you are working with something less efficient you must multiply the fuel btu by the efficiency.

    For example:

    Propane Furnace that is 80% efficient.

    1,000,000 / (91600 x .8) = 13.6 gals

    13.6 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu)

    Kerosene furnace that is 60% efficient.

    1,000,000 / (135,000 x .6) = 12.3 gals

    12.3 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu)
