USG igniter is smaller than that stove igniter.

USG igniter is about 87 mm long x 30.5 mm wide.
The stove igniter is about 111 mm long x 26.5 mm wide.

It seems to be 1/8" (not sure if NPT or BSP after JSR's experience with UXcell) so I'd say it's possible, but I'd be more comfortable with something at least 1/4" NPT.

After one solders a copper joint, how long should he wait until using the vessel? I'm assuming it's a rather quick process, but also wounding if there are benefits to giving it a few hours or something.

a copper joint after soldered it good to go, as soon as it cools,

no need to wait for hours or anything, its not like expoxy or glue

It should be just fine after it has cooled down.
I don't know the effects of heat on the structural strength of solder..

Ya know guys, I can't believe I'm saying this, but after quite a few hours spent scouring woodworking and machining forums, and various online catalogs, I think I'm going to buy a drill press from H***** F******.

But I want some second opinions before I do...

So far my reasoning is based on the options I have identified so far:

1. Get lucky and find a vintage american-made DP I can restore
2. Buy a quality import like Jet or Powermatic and drop about a thousand bucks
3. Buy a 'high-end' chinese HF piece o crap and hope it isn't a lemon
4. Buy an otherwise identical chinese piece of crap with a brand name for 30% more.

A note on number 4...
Apparently there are no American drill press manufacturers anymore, with the exception of Clausing. There may be a few more obscure ones that I didn't look into but I'll bet they're equally expensive.

When you're on the budget I am (<$300), there isn't much out there that's a sure thing. At first I was looking at that 34" radial press from grizzly, until I read the reviews people gave it on amazon. Sounds like more of a risk than I want to take.

The reviews for the HF press on some wood/metal forums seem to be roughly the same as on HF's review page, indicating that it might actually be decent. If anyone has ever used this or a similar model I'd like to hear what you think. This seems to have the power and speed control I'm after and also has a 5/8" chuck, which would be a small bonus.


I might give this question its own topic. Not sure if its necessary as of yet.

I say go for it. As I recall, Tech got his press from HF and he even does some turning on it for QDVs. Also, I bet you can make good use of all the bells and whistles on that particular press.
