|Thread: UK supplier of P1N Steel T Parting blade 1mm Wide|
Have you tried Millhill Supplies?
|Thread: DIY drip feed oiler for cutting fluid|
Thanks Celso, Just what I need, I have ordered the parts.
|Thread: Site with interesting Papers on many subjects|
Thanks for that👍
|Thread: Taplin twin|
|Thread: New design of mains plug?|
It is allowed to supply an EU plug with a UK adapter if the adapter cannot be removed or cannot be removed without the use of a tool.
It’s because we tried to save copper after the war by using ring circuits for sockets. Other countries use radial circuits with the fuse in the consumer unit rather than the plug.
Any apparatus supplied with this plug is probably going to be dangerous.
This non compliant design plug will not have a certified mains lead and usually the conductors are too thin for safety.
The only thing to do with it is to cut the lead into short pieces or burn it and bend or break the plug pins so that it cannot be inserted in a socket.
i would smash up the rest of apparatus and dump it in the recycling.
|Thread: Warco lathe mill attachment|
I have a Warco 280 with the milling head attached, it has Warco glass scale DRO on all axes.
This arrangement is the only way I could fit it in my work shop, but it does make it awkward to use at times.
If you can, you will be much better off to have them as separate machines.
|Thread: Fitzroy storm glass|
Link. Ten Quid from here
|Thread: Lathe - dead centre wont reach the workpiece|
I had the same problem with my Warco 285; I moved the DRO to the chuck side of the saddle, a bit of work but definitely worth it.
|Thread: anealing piano wire|
The problem with annealing piano wire is that hardening it again is pretty much impossible.
I know of people who have spark eroded holes in it but it’s too much hassle for most people
|Thread: Cox Per Wee or Tee Dee|
There is a plan for a 0.3cc deisel MM137 available from Sarik Hobbies which might be a better choice.
The ball-ended conrod design was used in several makes in that era. Cox sold (and the people who do them now still sell) a re-setting tool consisting of a metal base to put the piston in and a slotted tube to fit around the conrod. The end of the tube is then hit with a hammer until the required fit is obtained.

|Thread: 1/2" coventry die head on a myford super7|
Purely curiosity, what speed should the die heads be used at?
|Thread: Silver Soldering - A Simple Process Made Difficult|
I wonder if you could put it on your website or YouTube afterwards?
I use old transformer laminations though they may not be so easy to find now.
|Thread: Age related macular degeneration.|
One thing I should mention which is common to all forms of sight loss including macular degeneration and cataracts is that when the brain doesn’t receive the expected signals from the optic nerves, it can make up its own visions from the memory. This is known as Charles Bonnet Syndrome and can be really alarming if you aren’t prepared for it.
I have a similar condition except that mine is Macular Dystrophy, which is not thought to be age related.
The only treatment for it is supplementary pills like Macushield Gold, not particularly cheap at a quid a day, but better than nothing.
One of the effects of this condition is that straight lines have bumps in them, it seems strange at first to see power lines with these impossible features.
|Thread: re-homing the machinery and tools from my dad's workshop|
I’ve sent you a PM
