    replied to A lesson learned! Dehydration warning.
    I'll bet that gave June a good scare! Thanks for the warning. We're amazed at how much more water we need in this weather, and how much more quickly we run out of steam. It's hard to drink when you're not really thirsty--maybe that's why there are hydration apps!

    Glad you're OK!!!...

    I use a cheap, hand-held magnifier if I'm not at sure which end is up. Works every time!...

    Thanks, Rolf. That last paragraph is a clear and concise statement of their similarities and differences.

    Thanks, too, for clarifying how the oilite bearing retains its lubrication, and why a simple oil would be the lubricant of choice.

    If I’m going to use quality tools,...

    Thanks for the link, Hank. But now I'm confused as to the difference between a bearing and a bushing, since the oilite bearings look like bushings to me.

    Could it be more a matter of function than form, where bearing is the term when it surrounds a moving part and reduces friction, and...

    Thanks, all, for your thoughts on my "mystery".

    Hank, Thanks for checking into the bearing-bushing issue. Can you clarify just what an oilite bearing is? That's a new term for me.

    Here's the response I got from SuperMax, in case it will be helpful to those of you...

    SuperMax mystery

    Last week, out of nowhere, the conveyer belt on my 19-38 began to make a rattling type of noise that increased as the speed increased. We couldn’t find anything loose that might be rattling, and it sounded as though the belt might be too tight, but that made no sense since I figured that if anything,...

    Sorry to hear about your health issues, Rick, and hope things are working out for you.

    As far as the folks at SuperMax being stand-up people, they have always treated me so fairly that one year I sent them a box of cookies as a thank you gift. I’m glad your experience showed that the...

    I'm with Scott. I have two sliding lid boxes, each with one vertical divider, courtesy of Joe, my resident custom box maker.

    One box is for bags of #12-#5, with the #12-#9 on one side and the #7 and #5 on the other. The other box has #3-0/2 on one side, and spirals and other specialty...
