buy a commercially made wheel and cut to make 2 ? Noel.

Thread: Raglan Capstan MKII
27/01/2022 22:14:32

I have seen this machine, very clever ! 3/4hp motor with variable speed pulleys feeding 2 electro clutches, giving stepless speeds of 85 to 1750. 24v dc for the clutches. The mandrel has a lever operated collet chuck. The cross slide has 4 stops, 4 way tool post and rear tool post for parting off. The saddle has 4 stops. The capstan is six station and driven off an auxilliary shaft via change wheels. Built for Small production work, a fascinating machine. Noel.

SIF BRONZE as the name implies is a bronzy colour, so the repair will be obvious. It depends on wether you want a serviceable item or an ornament ? The nearest match will be something like Murex CINEX in 2.5mm but their costly ! Noel.

Thread: Adcock Shipley Bridgeport motor

Isn't star point opposite the wires bound up ? It will be there somewhere ! Noel.

Thread: Temperature control when grinding HSS tool-blanks?
25/01/2022 17:03:23

Rapid cooling will cause cracking and an angle grinder is the wrong tool for sharpening most things ! There is a book in the workshop practice series that is on tool grinding that may help and at about £7.50 not too bad. As to drill/countersink tooling - not easy without special tooling to get correct. Good luck, Noel

Not making any promises I will see what ME copies I have. Noel.

Thread: Can you identify this motorcycle?
24/01/2022 20:11:40

I don't know what year or make but the position of the carb and exhaust mean it is in my opinion a 4 stroke side valve. Noel

Thread: Dust Extraction

Wood Ect Fine ! Lathe or drill no use at all. Dry grinding may be! Noel

Thread: Myford Steady on a Boxford

Very neat and retains it's original use as well. Noel.

Thread: solid carbide spade? bit for drilling spring steel saw blade
22/01/2022 21:37:17

Bandsaw blades into hacksaw blades - an old trick - regrind a masonery bit to a cutting edge as a normal drill bit to make the holes. Noel

Thread: J&S 540 Hydraulics
22/01/2022 21:32:40

iso 32 is SAE 10.

Thread: Need to cut long thin strips of steel (& plastic) - e.g. with an angle grinder?
22/01/2022 16:58:28

SODave If you have not seen or used a 1mm x 4.5"cutting disc you really aught to, makes a hacksaw look old fashioned, the only stumbling block is you need to be skilled to use it ! Noel.

Thread: J&S 540 Hydraulics
22/01/2022 16:49:50

WHAT OIL SHOULD BE USED ? what oil did you use ? Noel.

Thread: Merryweather Fire King
22/01/2022 13:28:47

A beautiful model, of which you should be proud. As to pinstriping, a bit pricy but beugler make a neat tool for the job. Noel.

Thread: The Curious Case of the Cracked Injector
22/01/2022 13:14:32

Hum ! Brass can be strange, all cracks seem to be on the main component part, there may have been a flaw in manufacturing. Pessure test the good ones to 2x and see what happens ? Speedy may have it ? Noel.

Thread: How can I bond ABS (plastic) to NRL (rubber)?
22/01/2022 11:24:59

CT 1 ! It comes in many colours ! Noel.

Thread: Welding cast iron vice
21/01/2022 20:06:42

Proper cast iron MMA rods are of high Nickle content (90%) and very expensive ! some pre heat is a bonus and one needs to try and burn out any oil. Clean and V out to give a good weld if in 2 bits and allow to cool slowly after welding. If clean you could try MIG, or if you have Oxy- fuel brazing ! Welding cast iron very much depends on the iron quality as to success along with how it's done. Good Luck. Noel
