|Thread: Old cine film|
Interesting bit of video ! When I decided to transfer my cine films to DVD I borrowed a transfer device from a friend but had probs with the focus so in the end I projected to films onto a piece of bright white card a film them with a camcorder the results whilst maybe not as good as they could have been if I had them done professionally I was pleased with the finished results.
|Thread: Accolade to suppliers|
Whilst the preceding post are thumbs up for various companies, mine's a thumb's down ! I purchased a item from a well known lathe company from their eBay website the item was a toy steam engine when it arrived it did not have a burner this was not made clear in the items description or photos, so I emailed for their comments after a week I had not received a reply so I posted negative feedback this got their attention and I received a 'winging' email saying they had not seen my email,it had been deleted etc and I was being unfair !!! Now I find that I'm blocked from making any purchases on their ebay site

|Thread: My fathers Workshop and Projects - New home?|
Again sorry to hear your bad news and cant fault Neil's advise, when a friend of one of my fellow club members passed away myself and fellow club members helped with valuating the content of the workshop and list it on the club website then a few weeks later when the larger items had been sold we held a auction night to sell off the remaining bits and pieces the widow was more than pleased with the sum raised donated half to club funds as a thank you for the clubs help.

|Thread: mitutoyo digimatic micrometer|
Thanks everyone for your input as suggested I'll just get on and use it, but still recon a visit to Specsaver is required
Les / Jason
I don't have a 'C' spanner and there doesn't seem anywhere to use one ! if you look where the barrel goers into the body you can just about see three very small Phillips screws what they do at this point I do not know, have checked the end of the jaws and they are fine no light can be seen between them., also as I said earlier if I grip the thimble and apply a little force I can zero the mic but when using the ratchet it stops as shown.
Cheers for replies so far
Here is a photo of the problem
Thanks for the link had a look through but couldn't find any thing relevant to my problem
I have a mitutoyo 293-766-10 micrometer it came with the Myford S7 I purchased some months back, it got a slight problem when closing the mic with the ratchet it stops just short of zero 0.0050 it can be zeroed if you grip the barrel and apply a little pressure ! Is it possible to overcome this problem in anyway ? would appreciate help/advice please.
