|Thread: New coffee maker - disgusting taste!|
At the risk of a public flogging, I have a question from across the pond. The only Tea I have experience with is Lipton, is that anything remotely like what You Chaps drinkg?
|Thread: print-offable and laminatable chart|
What would be the thread depth for 569 tpi? Where can I get a tap?
|Thread: Old screwdrivers - any use as a materials source?|
If You need a tommy bar one with a nice handle works well.
|Thread: Testing for isolation|
Worked with a chap who undid a 2000 volt extension cord. He said it blew out 4 caps from His teeth and did a long list of damages to Him. Took 2 years to recover,thought He was careless.Found out later some one plugged in the other end.
Neighbor had a 440 transformer located on His house, put a ladder upon the house to paint it, the ladder slid and He hit the 440 line and it burned all the hair off His body. Docs said the only thing saved Him was He was a weightlifter and had enough strength to last through the initial recovery process.
|Thread: The Diamond Tool Holder|
|Thread: Chinese postal charges|
Myself and the Wife working full time did not get close to $61,000 a year. I would have had the means to afford an overseas subscription to the excellent Magazine the fine People who support this forum sell. How's that for sucking up. (I realize the exchange rate is not Their fault.)
|Thread: Snap rings for the new year|
Is that in Metric?
|Thread: Idea for a cutoff tool|
Will get a better picture, but it is just a home made tool holder with 2 bolts holding a bottom extension in place. Everything machined together after assembly.
|Thread: which parting tool|
Well, I just started a thread in the General section showing My solution. Combines the best ideas of both.
|Thread: Idea for a cutoff tool|
I have made an adaption to an insert cut off tool holder that solves the snatch and break problem with these tools. I have mounted it upside down with a shop made tool block holder. It works very well preventing wrecks by sliding up when it grabs. The quick change tool posts are made to have the main thrust of forces directed down with no relief possible if there are problems. This tool holder will slip up saving the blade.
|Thread: What material is it|
Could be Beryllium Copper.
|Thread: How far to be off tool centre before a turned finish becomes poor?|
Across the pond some of us use pallet strapping as shims, some is .020, some is .023, and the biggest is .030.
|Thread: Telephone / Internet Scams|
I answer with either similar to "Fairfield County Sherriff's office, fraud division," or act like I am getting My butt kicked.
|Thread: It's not rocket science|
The meteorite I just turned was so hard it must have been heat treated in the sun, and quenched in the shadow of the moon.
|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
If You are getting negative rake with the Drill Doctor, just slightly loosen the collet and turn the drill bit slightly clockwise (I think) and tighten it up and try again. If it's worse then it goes the other way, I don't have My notes here with Me at the moment.
|Thread: How does solder stick ?|
Since Mike likes to live dangerously it begs the question- Are there any Members here of the female persuasion?
|Thread: Space Ship leaves Earth's Atmosphere|
We seen a shuttle launch from about 200 miles away, it was about as bright as a road flare around 300 yards away.
|Thread: Deep-Well Ejector....|
Is this something a back yard hobbiest could cast at home?
|Thread: Nickel plating|
Over here the junkyards buy old American nickles (coins) as the nickles are cheaper than buying commercial nickle.
|Thread: Solution found to the World's biggest problem . . .|
Across the Pond some cities charge $5 a month recycling fee added onto garbage pick up fee. Found out there is no market for the stuff but that does not stop the money collection.
