So I bought the bench grinder and the bench drill press in December 2011. When I took the drill press out this weekend to assemble it and start drilling the holes for the rotisserie, I found out the chuck would not open. I took it back to HF and they said it was past the 90 day return policy. They did let me trade it in on a new one and credit me the original cost (got it on sale). That was yesterday, today I opened the bench grinder and set it up to start dressing the ends of the steel tubing. Every time I ran the metal against the wheel it slowed down, I wasn't pushing at all, just letting the wheel do the work. It kept doing this, so I got frustrated and pulled out my trusty little grinder and went to work dressing the ends of the tubes. I will take the bench grinder back tomorrow to HF and see if they will let me get a bigger one.
So as I get ready to weld my rotisserie together I am really concerned that the body will flex. When I put it up do I need to brace it? I am not sure my mustang is terribly straight as it is. There is a lot of fiberglass from the previous owner rebuild. I will have to replace some floor pans, cowl side panels, and some of the frame rails.
Well time to go I will try to posts more frequently.
