|Thread: Which is the best parting tool ?|
I use a Sandvik parting tool with Sandvik N151-2-200-5E inserts andI find it very good ! It came with the Myford S7 and a couple of spare inserts, looking around the internet for inserts I see plenty of N151-2-300-5E inserts and I gather that the difference between -200- and -300- is the seat size how does it differ ? would the -300- still fit the holder ? Would appreciate advice please.
|Thread: Walking beams|
Just within topic this subject reminded me of many years back when I went to work in a steel works one of my first jobs was to assist in the breakdown repair of what was termed 'walking beam' it moved red hot steel bars down the cooling bed, much like the one in the video and I have to say I was fascinated by them and would often when passing just stop and watch them for a few minutes all those steel bars marching along with military precision !
|Thread: myford super 7 Riser blocks|
I have some steel which I intend to use to make a pair of riser blocks, looking at the photos in this "link" would I be right in thinking the hex adjusting screws would be something like M16 with 10mm hole ? Looking at the photos seems a straight forward job but would appreciate any tips/advice on said job.
|Thread: Myford multi stop missing bit|
Another photo showing parts can be seen "here"
|Thread: WD40 alternative - any good?|
Not tried it but from past experience if it's 'green it's either twice the cost or no good
|Thread: Any model engineering clubs in Mid Wales?|
Station Road Steam web site carries a very good list of ME club's
|Thread: Engineering videos|
mrpete222 and Keith Rucker also post very interesting video's, Keith spends a lot of his time refurbishing/repairing old machinery both also worth a look.
|Thread: MYFORD SUPER 7|
can't beat free ! but to be fair think I paid about three quid for mine .
Hope your enjoying your super 7, when I when I had my s7 had the same problem so purchased one of these from a guy on ebay. Have not seem them on few a few weeks but if your interested and I'll send you his ebay contact details
Ian maybe your sensor is different to mine, the one supplied with my kit is a hall effect type sensor which I understand response to a magnetic field and yours a inductive proximity sensor. like you I check it with a optical tacho and noted very little difference between the two.
Hi all many of you have no dought already got one but I purchased one of these
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261324169832?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649, it took a couple of weeks to arrive and I fitted it today it works fine I used a charger from a have vac as a power source, so for £12.50 I'm well pleased

|Thread: Free Plans to be available on this website|
Thanks to all concerned.
|Thread: 3 phase and single phase wiring|
Mike it is as said a 3 phase motor which will run on 415v when connected in start and 240v (3 phase) when connected in delta. You could purchase an inverter to run the motor on 240v and you would then have the benefits that a inverter brings.
