When you're done, I'll ship mine out. Sounds like you would be super amped to do it again.

That brown looks a lot better at that angle, especially with the upper painted.

In some cases the blades on fans like this are not equally spaced.  Doing this can help reduce the noise that a fan blade will make.  The unequal spacing can disrupt the air movement and breaks up the frequency of the fan blade without having a large reduction in the volume of air being moved.

..but more importantly, it allows a mechanic a place to put his arms along with tools.

At least I said GM.

wait, did I just read that you bought a $1000 camera, but can't afford a $200 water pump!

The 755 is 34", but that spec isn't given on the 754.
I also really like the additional x&y travel on the Mathews. 8" on my Y travel is not enough for quite a few projects.

14
You trying to say you were a good boy Dave? I find that hard to believe. :)

15
That does seem a lot nicer. I guess I got your PM too late. lol
Wanna trade?

...mine is 31 1/2" from the floor, so that one should be 3 1/2" taller? I contemplated building a base, to put under the base, to raise mine up. It is rough on the lower back.

Tellin you boss, GM on the t-stats and water pump or you will regret it, and of course, I will be there to rub it in.

21
Last time I remember, I was using a large bit to face a piece of steel and it wouldn't take a .025 cut. the vibrations caused the nuts to loosen even tho I had tightened the crap out of them (with the supplied wrench).
Probably a multitude of user errors, like cheap bits, feed to fast, no strength in my arms, you know, the usual.

22
The 754 is really stout, but I have gotten a bit of flex out of the post. You have to really tighten the pinch bolts (like 1" nuts iirc). The wrench it comes with doesn't have enough leverage. Need to set up a socket and breaker bar but I keep forgetting.

Charles, close to 20k... I think it was 125 yards iirc, and the going rate for assembly (only) is 15k.
Got it squared and ready for tin today, along with a sunburn. We must have missed the blizzard, although it was pretty windy.
...and I don't care if I ever see another 5/8" bolt.

The pump has the relief built in and on the DOD motor, a separate regulator (60psi) screws into the oil pan, on the inside by the filter. (it can be plugged off)

Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

Which part makes sense? The screen under the sensor, the pressure regulator on the oil pump, pressure valve for the DOD system, oil filter issues, or the o-ring i mentioned? lol 
Out of a hundred or so we've done (2-6 a month), including an 05 suburban today, only a few had a dirty screen under the sensor.

edit: I feel bad for being mean to Dave. Sorry for your pain bud. :)

It definitely could be the sensor, but, GM 5.3s have a history with oil pressure issues. The #1 cause is the o-ring on the pick-up tube in the oil pan. Most shops will replace the oil pump, when it's usually only a 5.00 o-ring that's shrunken, and cracked, allowing air into the system. I would NOT buy that truck until they prove that they fixed it, sensor, or whatever. They need to manually test the pressure cold, and hot. If it can't build 60psi, or the gauge flickers, something is wrong.
If it's been run for a while with air in the oil (say 5-10k miles), and possibly low-to-no oil pressure, the roller lifters are the first to be damaged (may not completely fail until a few months after you sign the papers)

It is definitely a work of art and craftsmanship. My compliments to the builder for executing, the Architect for drawing, and you and your wife for dreaming it!

Thumbs up. Did you use lube? Definately don't want to spin them fast.

Yeah that 755 is a better machine for sure.
Not sure if I mentioned it but their mills are Taiwan and much nicer, and better tolerances,  than their china lathes.

It's still working fine. There's a rubber chip guard that goes behind the bed that is completely dry rotted, but that's the only real negative.
If you go to the first page, I gave you a link to the mill on Grizzly's web site (take too many mary jane gummy bears today buddy?)  :)

 what the guys said. My brother's experience with contractors the last few months (and mine, since I've been helping and chewing their butts) has been the unpleasant part of the build. They're in it for the $, trying to shortcut anywhere they can, even the guys I'm friends with.

It's only money Tex. I told my wife, a pool is like a broken slot machine, keep throwing money in it and get nothing in return.
So now I'm raising the backyard a few inches in  anticipation of the upcoming pool (to keep the wash from filling it with sand)
