Same problem here on Win10.

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

Then hit 'Return'.

John V,

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

Search the forum for info.

Good luck, bear..

What's the reason for reducing the drive shaft?

Are you talking about the whole shaft or the splines?

Sounds drastic.

Have you considered the plumbing dept.?

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

Good luck, bear..

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..

Thank you for adding the 'Link'. Re: Back gear.


15/10/2018 20:57:04


"is my lathe in what? if you mean reverse, no otherwise sorry i dont know what back gear"

Not reverse, but reduction, you have to physically put it into , or out of low gear (Back gear).

Check with the lever adjacent to the chuck.


15/10/2018 19:52:07


Slow speed, is your lathe in back gear?

Run-out, are the chuck jaws clean/ swarf free, this is inside the chuck.

Good luck, keep us up to date.


Thread: volt/ammeter
06/10/2018 19:49:07

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for the update, I suspected I was pushing my luck.

I trust the case/enclosure is OK.

Good luck, Bear..

06/10/2018 14:55:40

Hi Duncan,

I'll jump in and risk losing some body parts.

Ammeter should be in series with the load.

Also I can't see the unit being happy with the red & yellow wires joined.

Regards, Bear..

Thread: Problems with a breadmaker
28/09/2018 20:47:49

Hi Bill,

Take Two:

I'm sure you worded it correctly. It was selective reading on my part.

It depends how many loaves you consume in a week * 52

With home made, you decide what goes into your loaf.

So, you are excluding mice & rat droppings/ drippings, additives etc.

The smell of bread cooking is wonderful.

Regards, bear..
