|Thread: Backplate debacle|
I never bothered with a perfect fit of back plate to chuck. Years ago i also wanted a perfect fit but about 15 thou under size, so i bolted the chuck and got it running perfectly true by tapping with a lead hammer. The advantage of this i can true up again as the jaws wear.

|Thread: stamford show vandals|
The sentences these poor specimen of mankind getting is a worldwide phenomenon, and in my opinion the problem lies with the human rights bullshit, Animals have rights and humans have privileges with inseparably accountability Sentencing such conduct should be harsh to these maggots who can't create anything for themselves only destruct and destroy what others have achieved

|Thread: Suspected stuck piston rings|
I had the same problem a few weeks back and a friend gave me a product made by MOMAR CHEMICALS in my country. this stuff is used for removing carbon deposits from engines etc. I removed the injectors and pored about half a cupful down the bores which was in mid position an left a day or two, then cranked it out and washed out with paraffin. Problem solved. Try google for a similar product in the UK.
