ewww gross dont use wd-40 on anything
it turns into sticky goo after a year
if its a precision ground surface with no sliding contact, i use paste wax. comes in a yellow can, for furniture polish i think
brush it on, let dry, then buff with a paper towel
and mobil vactra #1 for ways, although you can use non-detergent motor oil just as well
paste wax you say
yep wish i knew about it when i was starting out
now i paste wax everything
for every day use... paste wax
you only need a very thin film
sure.. I actually used to use it on the metal hardware of my guitar
and on guns from time to time
did know WD got gooey
i wish i could get paste wax in an aerosol can
i think i'll have to make my own
you can get little "air sprayers"
used for spraying solvents and the sort of your own mix
bet that paste wax could be cut with mineral oil or something
yeah like one of those olive oil sprayers
hexane would be best.. dammit why cant you get any plain old chemicals
i can buy a bucket of toluene but apparently hexane is too dangerous
(the irony is that toluene is more dangerous)
boeshield seems to be highly recommended
paste wax in aerosol cans.... must it be wax??? or can it have other stuff in it
like rust inhibitors??
use mold saver... 20 bucks a can
Toluene can be so volitile..
Psst.... RENAISSANCE WAX/POLISH http://www.woodfinishsupply.com/RenWax.html
I haven't been using coolant, but I am in the humid south and my stuff stopped rusting. I haven't put scotchbrite on my machines once since cleaning degreasing with brake cleaner and renwaxxing
Some armor makers turned us on to the stuff
armor you say?
Yes some blacksmiths in the state guild that hand build armor
oh... fenn was looking for a spray on wax
It's not quite that, but it is soft and about liquifies in your fingers.
if its a wax polish... does that mean it has abrasive in it?
we were just talking about protecting equipment
I got about two ounces, did a mill, two lathes, grinder, vices, rotaty table, chucks pretty much every thing with it and left one plate alone for comparison.
And still have a chunk of it left it goes for ever...
Took me all day to degrease and do them all that was b't 11 and 13 months ago, end of last summer
There doesn't seem to be any abrasive in it, if there is it is too fine to see as it dries perfectly clear
hot bees wax has ALWAYS worked in my resto's.... then hand
yeah I use bees wax on my screws when the start to grind or sqeek
(rub it on)
gosh that's some expensive wax
yup... its good natural stuff..
not if you keep with a few keeper friends...
I covered all those machines/accesories with about an inch cubed piece. I used to have to scotchbrite every few weeks unless it was january
yeah... good.. I spent two hours today with a scotchbrite and steel wool removing rust
got more to do tomarrow
What all do you use to help remove the rust?
angle grinder and brass brush?
need a de-humidifier ... puppy... invest now or forever rub your pieces..
i use the twisted cup brushes on the really crusty stuff
I have one, but don't use it sense the ren wax
on light rust
on precision stuff i use a bob and paste...
you could make something out of scotchbrite pads that spins and/or flaps
or put a big scotchbrite pad on an electric sander
this is cotton with polishing past... red - rough white - finish..
do you have WHITE scotch bright available??
its the softest
well that was exciting
I've used this for pollishing after oilsanding lathe parts to final size http://www.wenolit.com/
fire department/et al
works well on alum
what did you TOAST???
some wires or something out in the hallway
set smoke alarms off all over the place
ty for asking
the fire dudes took the light fixture.
wow.. we had 1 a month or so back 3:00 am.. back yard was ablaze...
yeah this wasn't an actual fire
just sort of a swift oxidation of plastic
My first week in school some guys caught the oil quench bucket on fire with about a two hundred pound roller ... ha said I'll do just fine here..
ithk the lord. ; )
school is not the place to get hurt.. ; (
Hear ya there, they should have had a plastic fuse lid on the quench system instead of an open pit.
what's a plastic fuse lid?
no fused link lid??
Nope, no lid at all
plastic melt lid close fenn
even cheap parts washers have them
oh like a plastic rod that props a metal lid open?
I know... about a quarter later all the shop Monkeys were out the way.
or a blob a plastis or ive bismuth in the tube.. and the rod goes thru that
Hey here's a good fire

Propane tank at a foundry
where was the foundry at?
I think I may have driven by there after it happened
oh Tacoma, Wa
not the same place
seems very quiet tonight
I downloaded, compiled and have Apt360 on my Suse 10.0 box at home. Is there a tutorial or manual?
I have a post processor from NCCS. It is called PostWorks. It will post apt source. I would like to post a program someone has processed.

does anyone use selinux or grsecurity
it's a linux security module
that locks down a bunch of stuff, usually for isolated web servers and things like that
so you can allow a bunch of users to have shell accounts
and not have as much concern
locks down a bunch of stuff
it seems like selinux for computers that you don't actually do anything super important with
oh, THAT selinux.... nm
toast_: did you notice that he NSA doe NOT use it themselves???
the NSA does not comment on internal usage of applications
so uh, the nsa doesn't say if they use it or not
# Is it approved for government use?
Security-enhanced Linux has no special or additional approval for government use over any other version of Linux.
and like I'd actually TRUST anything the NSa distributes.
and i have family members who have worked for the NSA in the past, and currently work for other agencies
and they DO use selinux
the other agencies, not the NSA, who doesn't comment on anything
re-read what the statement says
no special approval for government use OVER any other version
they're saying they don't have an internal preference for selinux over, say, debian
(which, ironically, is selinux enabled)
toast_: selinux is a bunch of crap
