|Thread: MCB Types|
These look like the ones youre after:- **LINK**
If you click on the one you want, it gives you a side view that I think shows the blade that you are on about.
|Thread: CovMac Lathes|
To undo the screws, try an Impact Screwdriver:- **LINK** (also available from other suppliers).
Or if you don't want to buy one of those, then a length of steel rod (the same dia as the screw head) is placed on top of the screw and given a "good whack" with a hammer, this should shock the thread loose.
|Thread: What did you do today? (2014)|
Various threshold sealing systems are available here:- **LINK**
|Thread: Cross slide handle|
From the Myford Ltd website:- **LINK** . Also available in metric and they fit the small vertical slides (That's what I've used them on).
|Thread: Suitable primer for painting aluminium?|
Just found out about these wipes **LINK** on another forum and thought I'd share.
U-POL ACID #8 ETCH PRIMER, available from most Halford stores in the UK:- **LINK**
|Thread: Oh Fudge, That Was Close - A Salutary Lesson|
Try one of these:- **LINK**
|Thread: What is the advantage of more than 2 cylinders|
As a bit of a "Curve ball", how about 8 single acting cylinders with rotary sleeve valves:- **LINK**
|Thread: Adcock& Shipley horizontal Mill|
Here's some:- **LINK** or here:- http://www.mscdirect.co.uk/CGI/INSRCH?No=10&Ntt=milling+arbor+spacer&N=0&Ntk=Keyword+Search&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1 but it'll probably work out cheaper to by the whole arbor from RDG.

|Thread: Buzzed by Spitfire!|
Hows about 12 Merlins **LINK**
Both dates now sold out, but guess who's got his tickets sorted!
|Thread: ML10 modifications|
Having owned my Super 7 from new (1995), I can honestly say that the best "accessory" bought has been the recent fitting of a NewtonTesla package ( **LINK** ) to replace the standard single phase setup.
Makes the lathe so much smoother, quieter and in turn a lot more pleasurable to use.
|Thread: Bantam cock injector size|
|Thread: Super 7 Bearings problem|
Check here :- **LINK**
The same question answered about half way through.
I was taught to make the threads on the stud (only on the end that is screwed into the part) oversize, so that you have in effect a slight interferance fit.
Also 2nd the Counterbore or at the least a good CSK.
|Thread: 5C H/V Indexing Unit|
If it's a genuine Hardinge, take care of it, the current list price is (are you all sitting down?) £4,550.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!
i've just had a quick rummage around the net and it looks similar to the Hardinge HV-4N. This might help:- **LINK**

Hi, I can't help with the dismantling, but the Grub screws are there to prevent the indexing plunger locating in an unwanted index position, you unscrew them from the indexing holes that you want to use (or maybe screw them in, depending on the unit).
|Thread: myford change gear spacer|
Put a gear on first, then the spacer, then another gear.
|Thread: Flexible pressure bearing tubing|
Try Goodrich hoses as listed here:- **LINK**
The 600-02 has a 2mm bore and a 5mm dia over the outer braid.
This does tend to be expensive, but is probably the best and I've used Goodrich on my motorcycles for years.
