Thread: Making Holes in Copper Sheet

I use rotabroaches. They quite cheap on fleabay. You have to have a 3/4" collet though. They cut very accurate holes.

I am with Jason on this. Its thats far away it could be anything. Thats if it still exists? Too many people are out to get into the history books these days and make a name for themselves.

Moving on ---- I opted for buying laser transfer paper on line and printed my own water slide transfers. I am happy with the results and a coat of Humbrol clear varnish has done the trick. Not show standard but good enough.

I would post post a picture but for some reason my I pad will not load pictures anymore into my folders.

Ron they also had paid skilled chaps to do it, I am just a model engineer with limited painting skill, well except for emulsion and gloss which I slap on and the wife is happy 🤔😋

Before approaching Brunel I would look up posts on this forum as to the reliability of supply from them.

I left the heater on last night all night instead of once every hour for quarter of an hour I think it helped being warmer.

I will look up the taper cleaners

Thanks for all the help

Thread: What makes your bristle?

I use a hard one 😬 Soft one does not do it for me. My gums are so far receded which is just how it is. My teeth do not rattle 😂

I think these days wire strippers are very advanced and do the job so well. No need to poison yourself just get a good set of strippers.

5" Britannia

Does anyone have an automatic cylinder drain design for 5" loco's. Just watched a video on YouTube of the Sale area model engineers running day. A 9f looked to have auto drains. Mine are worked by a push pull rod from the cab and do not always work very well.

Thread: Using magnets

I use small 15mm x3 mm magnets with a 2kg hold to hold things like Allen keys chuck keys and spanners.

Very usefull items.

Thread: War o wm18

The cold is a thought. With my engine nearing completion i have been using the miller in the cold which i rarely do sometimes never in the winter. So it may be ok as the weather improves.

 

I will wait and see as my flurry of use is over at the moment

The oil is only light oil which is used in oil baths and drip feeder etc Millers which is good quality

Thread: War o wm18

I only put a small amount of oil on and spread it around.

Been doing it a long time. Problem has only started recently

Thank you for the replies. Tapers are all in good condition and i always lubricate them at change

The adaptors will be fine

Cheers

I have a wm18 milling machine. Recently the tooling has become difficult to free from the morse taper. It used to take a slight tap with a hammer to free the tooling. Now I am having to give it a bit more than I like to free the tooling. As I only really use a collet chuck and various drill chucks I am thinking of leaving the collet chuck in place and fitting a drill chuck with a parallel adaptor, thereby not needing to remove anything from the morse taper.

Does anyone know of a supplier of drill chucks with straight adaptors?
