|Thread: free copy of Model Engineer?|
|I thought it was just a catalogue. |
I subscribed today. I finally got fed up with looking for WHS's latest location of the mag
just been to WHS and brought MEW, unusually it was in a sealed clear bag, with a current copy of Model Engineer magazine.
but no mention of a "two" pack?
just curious if its a mistake?
|Thread: Spindexer/spin indexer|
Thank you for all the comments.
I think I will go with the Arceurotrade version.
Some good points raised.
Been thinking about getting spindex thing, (arceurotrade one).**LINK**
Are they solid enough to mill hexagons on bolts, or really just a simple drilling thing?
I only ask because the locking pin does seam a good distance from the action!
I have been using a hex ER collet block, but if these spindexers are ok, I'd be able to check for run out etc easily.
|Thread: Arceurotrade 000 QCTP|
250-200 would be nice!
|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread (2016)|
one more for my todo list!
|Thread: Arceurotrade 000 QCTP|
Treated meself to one of Arceurotrade's new 000 QCTP.
These are the sliding wedge type.
I bought mine for a Sieg C4, i'd had a mini lathe QCTP before, but, they are not very good!
Very impressed! Very precise location, far more positive and accurate than my "piston" type 2 on the Crusader!
Only problem is, I now need to buy more holders.......
|Thread: replacement motor brushes WEISS mill (champion 20v)|
The new ARC brushes arrived today, fitted straight in.
A big thanks for the heads up on this.
They look just the job!!
I was just about to order some from ebay!
Thank you for your help!!
|I'll probably get some oversize ones off eBay.|
Thanks for advice
Just discovered my mill is dead. Its a WEISS mill, similar to Chester's "chapion 20v"
Took out brushes and blew out with air and she lives again.
One of the motor brushes is very short, I have looked and can't find the correct size.
They measure 3.4mm wide, 10mm high and I'd guess around 15mm long when new.
Can anyone help, please

|Thread: Gary Wooding and his Chester 12 x 36 Lathe|
I also drilled and tapped the cross slide. 4 holes on the top and three on the side, (I made an "L" shape plate).
I figured that if I had a crash, it would be better to damage a steel plate than break a cast iron cross slide!
It also means that the load is spread over a far greater area
|Thread: M10 socket caps with 6mm Allen hole?|
M10 button head capscrews are 6mm hex.
I have used "low head" cap screws, I think they were 7mm hex
|Thread: M1.7 - what is the history behind it?|
all you need to know about metric threads

|Thread: ER 40 Lathe collet chuck|
pleased to hear its worked ok.
I got similar results!
|Thread: ER40 collet chuck|
1 1/2" is a bit big!!
The job was some 30mm 304 stainless.
I think i got the chuck from Gloster tooling on ebay.
The bearing type nut is excellent. **LINK**
I have not had to resort to using the spanner yet, even on 1 1/2" stainless bar.
So much better than three jaw
