|Thread: Why does the micrometer have a second knurled segment|
The second knurled grip is designed to afford the user better purchase when using the micrometer as a hammer during squaring operations and such like.
Well that’s one less you have to make.......
|Thread: Is the price of this model boat at all realistic|
If it sells then its realistic.........market decides what things are worth, not sellers.
|Thread: Dumb question from a none driver|
Did you get a receipt in your name when you bought it ? If so that’s your proof. No one will ever ask for proof unless there is a dispute over ownership between you and your son. And yes the seller should have filled in the existing V5c with your sons details (if he was to become registerd keeper), and sent of to DVLA Your son will receive a new V5c in his name in due course.

|Thread: Ultrasonic toothbrushes|
We feed our dogs on Raw, perfect pearly whites due to The bone content, plus a host of other benifits.
|Thread: be careful out there people!|
A friends son has recently been electrocuted at work, cardiac arrest at the scene but fortunately revived by a quick thinking colleague. Entry wound to his chin and a massive exit wound to the back of the head........nasty stuff electrickery, play safe boys
I loaned a mate my work SDS hammer drill, told him explicitly that i needed it for a job on the coming Thursday, He didn’t bring it back, and wasn’t answering my calls, so i went and bought a new one.
When he did return it the week after, seemed a bit miffed when i explained i didn’t want it back but expected him to buy it, for what it had cost me to replace.
We are still friends, but he never asks to borrow anything these days.
|Thread: Home built trailer|
Take your point, however its a fairly unlikely scenario, and considering the amount of old nails been towed around the country made from old car axles and bits of driftwood, that were built prior to the test becoming mandatory it all seems a bit daft. Test is £70 btw, or was last time i looked, and test centres are few and far between, with long lead times.
|Thread: Is your spindle bore large enough?|
Is Your Spindle bore large enough ?
Of course not, they never are
|Thread: Safety Glasses|
|Thread: Home built trailer|
Blank data plates are available on ebay.....you stamp them with the correct axle weights and the year of manufacture, but of course the 9 is missing from your stamp set, so you use a 0 instead

|Thread: Lack of Quill on Milling Machine|
To those stating the quill is only for drilling, i would counter it also comes in very handy when boring, especially when power feed is employed.
|Thread: In need of a steel ring 132mm dia|
Rather than rolling some flat it might be easier to cut off a section of tube, somewhere like metalsupermarket might be able to help. Or ask at your local pipe fitting stockist, they usually hold stock up to 6” dia, you might find a straight coupler that fits the bill, 5” schedule 40 is around the size you need, wall will be around 6mm
|Thread: Metal Bandsaw - Chester H80 or Warco CY90|
Have had a few bandsaws over the years including a large industrial Startrite,
All of the hobby ones ive owned, Clarke, Axminster and one i cant remember, have been to put it politely, ‘Somewhat Frustrating and inconsistent’ in operation, with plenty of fettling to be done from new.
Recently bought a Femi, and can’t recommend highly enough, A quality piece of kit, just does what it should, straight out of the box, work perfectly every time, with no faff whatsoever.
