|Thread: Parkside (Lidl) Cordless Angle Grinder|
What have I editted that makes any difference to your misleading post? Since when has having angle grinder in your car makes it made or adapted to commit theft/burglary.?
You are obviously ignoring the first line of what I called rubbish " Don't keep one in your car...You are committing an offence" which is total rubbish. Your interpretation/opinion has nothing at all to do with my reply which was just to the point that it's wrong. I don't need your barrack room lawyer spouting off with a lecturing "what's what", I know what I'm on about and I was right in what I said, actually dealing with the offence many times over 30years in the police helps a lot.
Rubbish, offence is only committed if it can be proved it's intended for something illegal- burglary or theft. Just having a battery angle grinder is not any kind of offence.
|Thread: Digital readout|
Not fitted yet John, recovering from having my replacement knee replaced with a new one so building up to it. I have chopped my X axis down by around 2 inches though ready to fit. Glass scale cut easy enough using a wet wheel diamond tile cutter, alloy casing in the bandsaw. Should be straightforward enough, seen videos fitting them to similar machines to mine - SPG 2217 (Warco WM14/16 type)
Two John, it's for my mill, didn't bother with a Z for the time being as it's got a built in one. But I was getting a 3 axis display just in case I did go for a Z later and there is less than a tenner difference between 2 and 3. Then stupid realised he'd pressed the wrong option when a 2 axis was delivered and I rechecked my order The 2 display can go on the lathe if I need a 3 for the mill Z axis in the future.
It was this DRO. Ignore the " Last One" for some reason they stick it on all their listings. 7 day delivery, half decent user manual in English not Chinglish, no fitting instructions but plenty on youtube if you need them. Just bear in mind as with most you order the read length you want but it comes 140mm ish longer to allow for the head to be able to cover the read length.
Bought one a couple of weeks ago from fleabay, Looked round, found a Chinese seller but had a Portsmouth location so no extra charges
|Thread: Chinese DRO opinions|
I had a similar/same 2 axis set delivered this week, via fleabay, very well packaged and finally a manual for a Chinese product in proper English not Chinglish. Pick a Chinese supplier with a U.K. location "base" to make sure you don't end up with tax and handling charges.

|Thread: Additives to kerosene for degreasing?|
Kerosene/Paraffin doesn't need any additives to work well degreasing, it does leave a bit of any oily residue but thats easily wiped off.
|Thread: Dumb question from a none driver|
If there is a dispute over ownership then it's up to the parties involved to prove they actually own the vehicle, sales receipt, agreement signed by the keeper that it's a loan vehicle etc. That's all civil law.
Road traffic law is a different kettle of fish, first question to the driver is "is this your vehicle" if the driver says it's owned by someone else, no matter who the keeper listed is, then the owner can also be liable for offences committed.
You can Use, Cause or Permit offences e.g. driver gets stopped for a duff tyre he is Using the vehicle, the owner is also liable - Permitting the use with a duff tyre. Doesn't matter who the keeper of the vehicle is other than being responsible for declaring who the driver was at a certain time when officially asked ,verbally or written .
|Thread: screw cutting on a chester db10 lathe|
Depends on which DB10 there's Ian's as above or there's the older DB10G like mine. Imperial or Metric machine? Mine had some kind of "manual" which was less than useless, threading section was a waste of ink, no explanations whatsoever.
Easy enough if you follow the plate, I've only done metric threads on my imperial machine, you have to leave the carriage feed engaged for metric with an imperial machine not use the thread dial, others will say there is a way round this but it's no real problem to leave it engaged..Left hand set up figure is for metric, right hand for imperial. Picture was right way up, the album has put it on it's side...sorry

|Thread: Noise Cameras|
Be interesting to see it stand up in court. The tests for noise levels when type approved have loads of parameters- Temperature, wind speed, humidity, speed, load etc then there's also the road condition/state, other vehicles in the vicinity and street furniture, can't be done in adverse weather or wind speed above 5 metres per second. The easiest way to get someone is if they have a non approved exhaust system, other than that you're struggling with this "simple" camera set up.
|Thread: Chester DB10 thread cutting ???|
Nice compact reg tester Ian

|Thread: What would one use this adaptor for?|
Too true, they are always on the side of the buyer unless the seller has a very very good excuse. I odered a couple of 10mm end mills and got sent a 22mm one, got offered a 50% discount if I kept it which I did. Then reordered the 10mm ones and again got sent another 22mm one . Another dispute and this time was given full refund and told to keep it, luckily they are 22mm but the shank is 20mm so I could use them with my ER32 collet chuck.
|Thread: Removing large flange nuts|
They are a common sight in most/every bike repair place as they are commonly used by many manufacturers, mainly front forks securing/tensioning and rear axle and suspension fitting. Got some commercial ones but also made a few from steel tube and old sockets grinding or milling the lugs when I couldn't source commercial ones. Depends on the size of the lathe one as to whether they are readily available, bike ones are probably up to 50mm across at most.
|Thread: Alternative to a QCTP?|
I decided to go for extra 4 way posts instead of a QCTP. Didn't make them though bought a couple of Boxford ones from RDG for my Chester DB10. Ideal size apart from being a touch too high, but had plenty of meat in the base to mill a bit off the bottom to get them just right. Prefer to just swop loaded ones over instead of a QCTP when other tools needed. Will probably get round to making some 2 way ones when I get chance.
|Thread: Alum as metal remover.|
Posted by Fowlers Fury on 18/12/2018 23:03:51:
Don't use alum if the carb is aluminum, if it's brass (or a bronze) then try it.
I've used alum in aluminium alloy bike bits for broken taps in the past with no problem. I can't see where in your link it says don't, in fact alum is recommended by a couple of posters.

|Thread: Just joined|
Welcome Clive, I beat all those "I'm close" posters, I'm in Werrington.
|Thread: Hand files for aluminium|
I use a Surform rasp, prefer the 10" flat handle type though you can use the wood plane type handle ones. Shaves the alloy quickly leaving a decent surface and doesn't clog, replaceable blades though my current blade is some years old and had a fair bit of use on alloy.
|Thread: Drain Plug|
Can't see it mentioned that a motor factors has been tried, someone did mention it earlier. I've just done an oil change & service on our Rav4, all bits from the local motor factors including the drain plug which had a crushable copper washer and a thick fibre washer with it. Hooked blister type pack so obviously they have various sizes, Well worth checking, Having a quick look at a couple of Motor Factors (GSF etc) they do list the 2000 Trooper for bits.
