|Thread: Kit Cars|
Friend had an XK150 looked like a later version of the XK120, nothing like the D Type.
I had an E Type, I think the best looking car ever. Not the best handling though.
|Thread: Couple of things at Lidl|
Boys toys at Lidl.
I bought a furniture mover at Lidl for £9.95, I think the castors would cost more on their own. My wife looked very disapproving and asked what I wanted a skateboard for. I explained what it was, she told me not to play with it with my friend as we'd both finish up with broken hips. I wondered which one of us she thinks is the bad influence, we're both over 70.
|Thread: Metal cutting bandsaw|
I bought my saw from APTC, There was a note saying that EEC rules did not allow tables for vertical operation so this item was no longer supplied. There is not much to fit the table to, it fits to the end of the blade guide with 2 screws. I made a table 150mm square X 3mm, used it once, haven't seen it for ages.
|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
|Thread: Lathe chuck|
Most 4 jaw independent chuck backplates are smaller than the body diameter. With 3 jaw chucks, the backplate is (usually) the same size as the diameter. Check the specs of the chuck you intend to buy, will tell you what size you need.
I believe Chronos stock suitable backplates.
|Thread: Napolionic cannon|
I'm sure there were plans for a 'Napoleon' with field carriage and limber in one of the Home Shop Machinist Project books.
|Thread: Sad but true!|
|Thread: Central heating query|
It sounds like a neon indicator, they do this if there is some leakage current.
|Thread: Thread, counter error?|
|Thread: Magazine wrapper|
Grey plastic bag.
Sometimes you get 2 magazines, pity they are both the same.
|Thread: Thread, counter error?|
Just viewed some of my posts, I noticed the post counter (number of posts) seems to be stuck.
|Thread: Bridgeport Series 1 Mill Feed Box|
Does anyone have instructions for use of the Bridgeport Cherrying attachment please.
George, the bearings on my MK1 feedbox were not on the feedscrew, they were on a sleeve which joined the feedscrew to the feedscrew extension.
|Thread: DRO- only one set|
Definitely the mill! I fitted a 2 way to my mill, PCD, calculator and many other functions, it was very good indeed but I regretted not going for the 3 ways.
|Thread: Hello Everyone|
|Thread: Which spindle fitting on my milling machine?|
|Thread: Evading VAT and Import Duty|
|Thread: Myford Bed Regrind|
I don't see why it should affect rigidity of the machine, that's the way Myford did it.
|Thread: CFH Gas & Welding device kit SF 3100|
Are there any air blown torches suitable for use with Propane? A long time ago I used a purpose made torch with coal gas and the blow end of a domestic vacuum cleaner for brazing, very hot it was too!
