Why are you measuring at 110mm, that's ~ 4.25 inches?


Thread: What do you use your lathe for?
03/07/2019 13:33:40

Some good and interesting answers.

Me, maintenance, all things indoors and outdoors.

Most recent, lawnmower and garden shredder.

Making mechanical parts for the electronics hobby.

Enjoy working with acetal & similar.

Thread turning is very rewarding and therapeutic.

If you are having a bad day, a burst of the lathe is a tonic.

If its shorted, it could probably cope with low voltage. Just a thought!

Would a ball out of a computer mouse do? Not very shiny.

Same problem here on Win10.

My solution; Just keep typing, then back peddle to where you want the new line/paragraph.

Then hit 'Return'.

Regards, bear..

John V,

You have to create an album, then place your pictures in it.

Search the forum for info.

Good luck, bear..

Thread: Best way to turn long, thin brass job
21/12/2018 20:48:06

Interesting video.

Thank you, bear..

Thread: turning hardened steel
19/12/2018 18:33:50


What's the reason for reducing the drive shaft?

Are you talking about the whole shaft or the splines?

Sounds drastic.


Thread: Making a Tap to Thread Plastic?
18/12/2018 17:15:58

Have you considered the plumbing dept.?

0.5" / 15mm olive + compression joint, or a piece of copper pipe?

Good luck, bear..

Thread: Lost key for Simat 101 crank chuck

Hi Andrea,

Update please.

Have you found your chuck key?


Thread: Myford ml7 tools size
11/11/2018 16:06:14


I may have missed something. With your 10mm bits, grind the end down so they are at centre height.

Then grind the cutting profile, its not critical, if it does not cut well, the grindstone is your friend.

I've used 12.7mm/ 0.5inch, yes, more grinding involved, but if the price is right etc.

Good luck, bear..
