Thread: Joining two pieces of 10mm stainless steel bar at right angles.

Hello Everyone, I have just created my first album, please bear with me. Four pictures of the oven rods (Shelf supports). The job didn't turn out as good as Ians', but my customer was very pleased with the results.

Hi Everyone, Thank you all for your input, Coalburner,Grade 304, the other details are in the O.P.

I haven't got welding equip.

Ian, that look like a nice job, that is the way I'll go.

I didn't think I could get a tight enough bend on it without it cracking, not got enough to experiment with.

Regards, Bear..

Help please, Joining two pieces of 10mm stainless steel bar at right angles.

Before you ask, its for a Neff oven. Extra shelf supports, 4 off. They are £35 each plus post & packing. So its a DIY job.

One length is 410mm, and at right angles at one end is a 30mm length.

The original rods have a real sharp 90° bend. I intend to bolt them together using a M4 bolt.

I'm after the neatest configuration. Tools; ML7 & vert slide + it will not beat me.

Thread: pillar drill advice

Hi David,

For £60 there is a number of drills that would fit the bill. I've just purchased a Clarke Metalmaster S/H for £40 & happy. Saw a Draper, similar spec. in our local tool store Abran Tools @ £59.99 Looked Good. (After I had purchased of course).

Thread: Tool Post for Myford ML7
30/11/2012 18:33:11

Hi Phil,

Nice photo, you sorted that.

I have a ML7 too, sounds like good advice to remove the ratchet, mine has never lined up square. I will remove mine. It can't be a bad thing, the toolpost moving away from the work (Under extreme circumstances). Better than a hole in your head!

Regards, Bear..

Hi Phil, Paperweights! Can you modify them so that they function? If you are able to cheat, turn the top slide a little until your toolpost is square mit the chuck, simples.

Tool height, pack them up with shims (washers, coins folded £20 note etc).

Regards, Bear..

A cheapish car / lawnmower 12volt battery could be the answer, it would last years, topped up with a battery charger. Plenty of smooth amps at your finger tips.

Siddley, Interesting that you are a gunsmith. Do you work on PCP's as well. I live close to Daystate Ltd.
