Thanks Alex will check it out
Not wishing to highjack MichaelR thread but could I ask how important are HTTPS websites to members ? The reason I ask is I maintain a website for my club Link and I,m asking myself is it work spending yet more of the members money on security certificates.

Thanks for the entertaining video Jason
Garry if you do fit a water shut off valve make sure the bore of the valve doesn't restrict the water flow
|Thread: Cast iron welding electrodes|
I needed to do a quick repair many years ago on the oil tank on a Ellison starter as I remebr I vee'd the joint preheated both tank and rods. The weld looked really c*ap but the tank did not leak and although I purchased a replacment tank I never fitted it.

|Thread: Surface Mount Switch|
I fitted a NVR on the side of my drill as shown in photo, the on/off was on the side of the drill and difficult for me to use so I purchased on off ebay popped it in a box and extended the wires .
|Thread: What grade|
Thanks for all the answers, I don't mind a quickly with the Brasso but the copper colored spots on the present one do annoyed me
Thanks for suggestion but I don't think it would be suitable, correct me if I,m mistaken
I've noted on many occasion the wheel hub caps on my 3" Burrell tarnish easily and have copper spots appear on them so I'm thinking that over the winter I may make some new ones, so what's the best grade of brass to use to get a good finish and polish ?
|Thread: Morning from the Midlands|
Welcome to the forum from a 'west midlander'
|Thread: I am a metal sculptor and happy to be here!|
Welcome to the forum don't worry about your 'English' I live in the black country and I'm often asked to talk English very much like your work the dog and humming bird stand out for me !
I do all my milling on my S7 as I don't have a miller, I use a standard vertical slide also the type with the double swivel. If I have a lot of milling to do I use a collet to hole the cutter but for the quick one off I have been known to hold cutter in the chuck. I only do small parts so for me the biggest draw back is setup time .
