Thread: Desoldering how to?
26/01/2020 18:40:03

Hi Ian,

Congratulations, very satisfying I'm sure.

My interest has been hobby oriented, I too enjoyed the electronic magazines, especially 'Television' the follow-on from Practical Television.

Now, the www. is so useful for gathering information.

Regards, Bear..

Ian, Have you sorted your desoldering?

If you are still pondering, I could do it. Cost? Postage only.

The only downside, it could get lost on its' journey

Thread: why does my makita go pop occasionally ?

Hi Gerry,

Regarding the 'search' duckduckgo, "Makita mains noise suppressor."

It gives you some insight to suppressors in general.

Interesting comment from Andrew, regarding earth (Ground) connection.

Good luck!

Is this any good?

Hi Gerry, Can you take a close-up photo of your yellow whatsit .

I would imagine it's a mains filter.

Good luck, Bear..

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!
