|Thread: MIDLANDS MODEL ENGINEERING EXHIBITION|
Ah, the Little Englanders are back.
Love a moan? A good winge? Too right.....
|Thread: Slideways oil|
Not another machine tool oil thread...
Forget the "use anything inc motor oil" brigade.
If you can't get proper ISO 32 or 68 Slideway oil easily (Ebay is a wonderful shop window) or are not prepared to pay the prices (8 quid a litre seems steep), go to your nearest auto factors or agricultural tractor parts shop and get a 5 litre can of hydraulic ISO 32 or 68 for a pittance. It is is virtually identical to slideway oils, just less tacky.
|Thread: Tapping drill size|
Done hundreds of M8 over the decades, all common materials, hand and machine tapped, Zeus book says 6.8mm, 6.8mm it is. Or imperial equivelant.
|Thread: Problems with "The Home Shop Machinist" website?|
Not working here either. I look daily.
But George Bullis who runs the site recently mentioned they were undergoing site renovation and would be "off air" for a day or two. Could be that.
|Thread: Telescopic bore gauges|
Concur with Clive.
For sizing and measuring telescopics, i like to have the mic cradled in it's stand.
|Thread: Lidl grinder/belt sander £29.99|
Concur. Looks ridiculous for the price.
I have a Creusen linisher/polisher similar and i'm embarrased what that cost 16 years ago....
|Thread: Reilang oil cans|
I dunno what it is with Reilangs, prolly a bit like Myfords - blinded by the brand.
I have one, a lovely alloy bodied 500ml version, too big and bulky for machine tools, it's relegated to the motorcycle side of the workshop.
But, it's no better than the version Vic linked to above, for putting oil into ball oilers.
I have used for years these cheapo Chinese oil cans, choice of hard or flexy spout, never a problem. And out here, a 200-250-350ml version is 2.50 quid.
Never broken one, and if i did, i'll get another 2.50 GBP one.
Oh and the Castrol version; a Fiver extra because it's green with Castrol written on it...
Nowt as queer as folk...
|Thread: Colchester Chipmaster Part|
Answers like the above is what makes forums a great place.
Can't ask for better. Kudos.
|Thread: I am a metal sculptor and happy to be here!|
Superb work. Kudos!
|Thread: New tool post for my lathe|
Armstrong type tool holder in a lantern tool post.....
And just for back up, 19 QCTP Dickson (note spelling) holders...
And for extra extra back up, note the original indexing 4 way behind the light, although i despise using the thing and dislike it intensely.

|Thread: New lathe?|
Yes. SIGNIFICANTLY better.
Note the capital letters for effect.
|Thread: Cutting tools - what type is most suitable?|
Yes you don't need 5% Cobalt or M42 HSS, BUT... you DO WANT brand name HSS, it is not expensive. I stay clear of no name Chinese HSS.
I also disagree that grinding is a hassle, it is extremely simple, and in the smaller 1/4" and 5/16" sizes, very quick.
Plenty on YT to get you going.
|Thread: collet block|
Are you sure it's not 3C?
The Southbend 9 is 3 MT as you rightly said, and i was under the impression 5C will not fit in a 3 MT lathe spindle. The SB Heavy 10, will, however, take 5C.
|Thread: cutter slippage using ER series collets|
Thank you, concur.
What is ER ?
All my cutters are threaded (still available) and never slip in my Clarkson type Vertex holder.
|Thread: I’m done with big pharma‼️|
|Thread: Black crackle spray paint|
Wrinkle Black can be purchased in Harley Davidson dealers in aerosol can form as an official HD part.
More matt than gloss, and high temperature too.
Good stuff, but it aint cheap last time bought some.

|Thread: citric acid|
Nah, add a double Vodka in there, it'll be fine...
|Thread: Tool post project|
Wonder how the OP was getting on?
If he had taken on any of our ideas or suggestions or was ploughing along with his own plans?
|Thread: Screw cutting is over complicated|
Lucky bar steward.
Envious? Just a bit....
