Thread: Why can I 'paste' but not 'Cut' in the stupid MEW text editor?

John S. I really enjoy your humorous comments. The chainsaw was a killer too.

Thread: Suggestions please Vol3

May I just say, having put a PC mouse to to sleep, removed the encoder bits. Don't forget the steel ball, it's easily drilled and makes a useful knob. You all knew this of course.

Viewing problem with IE8, try moving up to IE9, it's free.You can restore back to IE8, if you set a restore date on your PC. IE9 has certainly worked well on XP for me. Now I'm on Win 7.

Ian S C, I like your angle on the subject. It is relevant in all things, not just our hobby. The master always learns from the student.

Thread: Replacing bronze bush in an aluminum alloy casting

Hi terry lee 2, Thank you for your reply. I enjoyed the lawnmower touch. Sounds very interesting. Best of luck with your project. It could have been a submarine, but we won't go there.

Regards, Bear

Unless I'm missing something in the original request, it looks like half a story. What is it part of? Lawnmower? Submarine?

What size are the bushes approximately? More info please.

Thread: Print out complete thread (WITH pix)?
20/10/2012 19:17:55

Hi AES, As mentioned above, I also use Gadwin Printscreen, it's free to download. It also uses the rectangle to capture exactly the parts you require. Works fine in XP & Windows 7. You can print any page you choose to. All your captured pages are stored in a Printscreen file.

Thread: Beware Bought Lathe tools.

What a terrible looking object, tool is too good a word .Perhaps you should have it carbon dated?

Thread: Atlas 10" runout
12/10/2012 18:53:27

Have you got a similar runout when using a decent chuck?

If you put a sturdy bar in the chuck with six or more inches sticking out (Motor NOT running) grasp the bar and check for movement, towards and away from yourself.

With bearings costing that much money, they should be very robust.

Thread: Tilting table.

Les J1,

Gadwin Printscreen works for me, on the same set-up as yours..

Thread: Chester Conquest lathe just gone 'pop' !
18/08/2012 16:48:27

Re: Chester lathe, I think you would be very lucky to get away with a single diode/component.

You need to check all the semiconductors for short circuit, at least. You can source all your components on good old ebay, no minimum order charges etc.

Can you rule your motor out? It may have a leak to earth.

Good luck!

All OK here on Windows 7 (64 Bit) and IE 9.

Had problems with another forum this month; Weihrauch owners club, lots of members couldn't access it, whilst others had no problems. (Air Rifles not dogs). Talking of Stickys, The above forum has some very good ones, ideal for new members etc.
