|Thread: Calling all Kiwis|
Bought a BlueTooth dongle from China for $2, including shipping. Not here yet, shipping is 4 weeks. Lowest price in the stores is $22+tax. Will see how well it works when it arrives.
|Thread: Aluminium thread strength|
Why would 5 ° make a difference in Aluminum threads?
|Thread: The colour of threshing machines.|
Spent 12 years banging on Alligator clips,still widely used in Industry.
|Thread: mystery tool|
During the American Civil War a Doctor (saw bones for sure) stated He had arm amputations down to 15 seconds. No anesthetic back then just a slug of Whiskey. OUCH.
|Thread: Couple of things at Lidl|
Wrap Them up good and store in refrigerator to prolong their life, Yours might shorten slightly.
|Thread: Lightning storm|
Do You have heat lightning over there?

You give scrap (love) a bad name - Bon Jovi.
Tiny bubbles by Don Ho (in My soldered joints leaks)
Across the Universe- Where did it fall to?
I can;t get no da, d,a da, satisfaction (domestically made good parts.)
Wild spring, I think I lost You.

Working in the chip (coal) mine going down down,down.
Electrical for Lucas lovers- Hello darkness My old friend.
Scrap bin- Another one bites the dust.
|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
Yes but now Your angle grinder will need them!
|Thread: In my drawers|
It has to be realized that just because a tool has sat there and not been used, that it will not be. Many a time on a Saturday night My bacon has been saved by a Plan C tool. You cannot save everything but it is fun trying and a big chest swelling when it works. I have a friend that does not have any plan B's and it makes trouble scrambling around trying to find some one to help.
|Thread: Political views within the forums|
The opinions expressed by the Members here help Me to understand Your Society and ways of doing things. I have a tough skin and any political or otherwise sharp barbs will not affect ( correct word) Me and I welcome the errant discourse.
|Thread: How can I drill a deep, non-standard, small diameter, hole?|
Perhaps We should start a thread seeing Who could turn the smallest diameter. Lots to learn.
|Thread: a new skill|
|Thread: Valve guides|
From across the pond valve guide knurling was done a while back, don't know if it is still done, but was told the job would not last as long. How long it would last is Your best guess, same as piston knurling.
|Thread: Workshop to drool over.|
45 years experience and still leaves the chuck wrench in the chuck. Prefer simple shops.
|Thread: Lost and Found|
Friend gave Me some maps for a trip. We could not find Them and plodded along with out Them resulting in a few mistakes. Came home looked every where with no success. Took 2 days to realize I put Them away where They belong thinking We would go there to get Them before We left. So much for trying to develop good habits.
|Thread: Milling machine operation|
I slot 3/8" deep in 303 Stainless Steel. I use 3 passes of 1/8". Width of cutter is .062. I use a small horizontal mill.
|Thread: Rotary table set up|
|Thread: Hot lathe chips|
Don't want to even think of that.
If One gets up Your nose You get the smell along with the pain. On Your lip seems to be the pain apex.
