08/12/2018 12:11:18

I have my Gramps Seiko sportsmatic wristwatch which has never been serviced to my knowledge was new in 1965 and still going strong, it never leaves my wrist


Thread: Getting priorities right
07/12/2018 14:00:47

Okay but I didn't think so

Congratulations to all who have given up smoking, however I am not impressed about the comments made about old people can't work out if they are some sort joke or serious comment, I am 74 like my pipe and use a e cig now and then, I managed to get off fags 3 years ago but on the rare event I have a tipple I like a fag, mind you I do agree about the benefit brigade, well some of them anyway


Thread: Interests other than Model Engineering

Roman Empire history, History in general, reading historical bokks of most periods

That is a good point Mike


Thread: What did you do Today 2018
30/10/2018 20:00:18

Thank you Neil for those words of comfort


30/10/2018 19:34:44

Managed to thin the sides of my coupling rod for Rob Roy so it ended up 1/8" thick instead of 3/16", should have checked the drawing !!! Luckily it was the first one so can do the others correctly and make a replacement 😠


Thread: Can you identify the mystery man?
30/10/2018 19:25:58

I think it's the little so and so who lurks in all our workshops who keeps hiding stuff we saw a minute before


Thread: Fixing axles to wheels
21/10/2018 18:46:58

Truloc 268 or 271 seem appropriate


21/10/2018 14:16:54

Thanks Neil, I have 3 thou clearance so hopefully that'll be ok, I do use truloc but will perhaps use the ones you suggest


21/10/2018 11:48:14

Thanks FMES, I suppose if its too close a fit then the loctite would be squeezed out on assembly I'm wondering what the max clearance would be, the insertion of a pin sounds like a good idea

Thanks again


21/10/2018 10:50:21

What clearance should there be wheel and axle for loctite/truloc? I have searched forum with some success but would like peoples advice please


Thread: homemade slip roll
06/10/2018 11:33:40

Nice job, liked the music very soothing. I was taught to pop the ends of the material over something round and put a radius on before rolling to give it a start


Thread: A tale of two suppliers
04/10/2018 18:39:38

If I was in business and my delivery courier took 5 days to deliver I would find a courier that companies use that deliver faster, it is a competitive world after all


04/10/2018 14:24:18

Used Tracy and they are good, supplier A probably will last all day in business, there a lot of good suppliers but also a lot of rubbish ones, we soon find out who to trust

Be careful out there


Thread: Oxy Acetylene or Oxy Propane?
01/10/2018 20:01:32

I think the hoses are rated type T for propane and type R for acetylene, this courtesy of YT, done a bit of research and seems I can use my oxy/acet torch but need to get a dedicated cutting nozzle for propane


01/10/2018 13:01:16

I have a number of oxy acetylene torches including welding/cutting and lightweight all with their nozzles. I also use propane wit sievert torch. Been thinking of getting acet again but can I use the oxy/acet torches with propane?


Thread: Tom Senior Major milling machine ... gib or jib .. adjusting
29/09/2018 11:52:50

Someone once remarked that they liked the cut of my gib but to date havn't been able to find my adjustment screw anywhere 😁
