|Thread: Warco VMC Z Axis spacer|
I only receive the mag every month
How do I get hold of an article regarding the above (MEW issue 215) There doesn't seem to be a back issue listed - would the article be available anywhere?

|Thread: Todays DUMBO award|
Junior hacksaw blades definitley cos it tensions the frame when cutting - never tried it with bigger
|Thread: R8 instead of MT3|
|Thread: ER chuck for Myford Super 7|
Yes, but I was searching for Super 7 today
That's the one - didn't realise it was for an ML7
Many thanks David
A couple of days ago I was reading a post regarding ER32 chucks and there was a drawing produced by John Stevenson in the thread - I could have sworn I bookmarked it, but now I can't find it!
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
|Thread: Wadkin surface grinder.|
I sent you a PM a while ago regarding another matter - I thought you were'nt on the forum any more
|Thread: milling a 2mm slot in mild steel|
Thanks again Jason
A slitting saw is a definite thought, thanks
It's a 2 mm slot in 4mm material
I want to mill the above along a 4mm section of steel. The smallest cutter I've used so far is a 3mm, but was hand fed for a very short distance at maximum rpm and I was sweating all the way through (didn't break the cutter though
The cutter I've got is HSS 2 flute and as I've got a powered x axis, will be using that. Can someone give me a little help on speed/feed/cut please? I've only got the one cutter but I'd like to preserve it as best I can.
My machine is a Warco VMC.

|Thread: Warco VMC one shot oiler|
Has anyone upgraded the above oiler on their mill? The nut holding the pump handle pivot fell off today, so I've dismantled it for repair. I've got to make a new gasket but wondered if anyone had 'improved' it at all?
I'm sure that the nuts don't get any oil via this device and started thinking of an article I read recenctly regarding the 'oiling' hardware avaibale from Arc Euro.
Any info. gratefully received - I will be making a non-return valve as the air pocket are riduculous
|Thread: 6" MS Bar for Z axis extension|
I'm a great fan of John's video's and I have seen that one I hate to tell you this but I swear a LOT more than that!
6" was to include a skim - 150mm finished is what I need
Jenkins has sorted me out - many thanks, I went for the next diameter up as it's not bright finish though
Thanks to all
The time has come to make a riser for the Z axis on my Warco VMC - Does anyone know of a good place to source a 6" length of 6" diameter mild steel bar cos I don't want to have to get a massive piece that I won't ever use again. I've used the search for various terms and found nothing
