|Thread: Spark erosion commission|
Better off without keys so when it gets jammed it just slips and does not rip up the work, damage you division device and bend the arbour etc.
|Thread: Bristol Model Engineering & Hobbies Exhibition|
Went on Sunday not a bad day out, seemed to be less exhibits than previous years, quite a few tool stalls, yes not bad at all only blight on the day was the people on the RDG stall trying to overcharge me.
It was better when the machine vedndors had stalls and you could view and try the machines first hand, they must have lost sales from that.
|Thread: QCTP for 5" Boxford CUD|
Thats a really nice base for your rear Toolpost might make a good submission as an MEW article?
|Thread: One Man and His Lathe|
Boxford less common?.... only in every school when I were a lad
I think Boxfords will be around long after some of this modern far eastern stuff with it's dodgy circuit boards bad cut gibs and the like
|Thread: ArcEuro Model 100 QCTP on a Myford ML7?|
AFAIK you can make the toolpost fit .....but the issue then is can you get your tooling low enough in the AXA holder? as they have a substantially thicker base than say a Dickson type.
|Thread: Perfectly ground Twist Drills every time.|
Give your friend both of them I'm sure as a collector he will love you for that, either that or let him choose
then create the best drill grinding jig ever!. .
|Thread: quickest way to bore a large hol using a lathe|
|Thread: I think I've seen one before.........|
Looks very similar to one of the Vari Speed pulleys you might find in a Bridgeport Mill.
|Thread: Tom Senior M1 paint colour|
Paragon looked ok until you throw in the P&P and VAT it then rises to £34.36 for litre, I can get 1L Tractol single pack machinery enamel from Smith & Allan for £19.79 inc VAT & postage or around £40 for 5L.
I might try and get some colour swatches and try to match something close enough from Smith & Allan.
Does any one know what the RAL, BS, or Pantone number might be for the green these machines are painted with.
I can see it's available from Stationary Engine Supplies but at the eye watering price of £21.48 for half a litre (inc shipping) I can only imagine at that price it must have a high precious metal content.
What I would like to do as something of a cheaper alternative is to pop along to Smith and Allan and buy a gallon of their excellent machinery enamel for something a "bit" cheaper than the above but to do that I need some kind of paint code.
The colour dosent have to be exact as the whole machine is being painted.
I did find a "recipe" for the colour using Humbrol Enamel on the Tom Senior Yahoo group but that also works our somewhat expensive.

|Thread: Another open thought - beginners perceptions .|
Its that word Expert again...
Ex = Something past it's best
Spurt = Drip under pressure
It never ceases to amuse me when someone boastfully introduces themselves as an Expert in this or that....
|Thread: Efficient Workshop Heating|
