Thread: Alternative to a QCTP?
02/02/2019 21:54:36

Hi Martin, I made a QCTP to Harold Halls design with 12 toolholders, prior to this I made 4 two way toolposts which I use for boring bars and a holder fot dti for use with 4 jaw chuck, these are just as quick to change over as the qctp ones, I made them 2 way rather than 4 way as I could never fit 4 tools satisfactorily in the 4 way,they were made up using stock materials rather than milled from solid, tools set at centre height no problems, go for it I say

Thread: Garage Condensation
11/01/2019 19:58:11

An update--- I ran dehumidifier for a couple lf nights for 8 hours on auto setting and a good gallon of water collected and no condensation visible, then reduced hours still on auto for 4 hours per night about 4 pints of water collected, currently still on 4 hours per night but unit set on low collecting approx a pint overnight. There has been no condensation visible on any surface and even the roof panels appear dry and are a light grey colour instead of the previous black. The garage is unheated and up and over has been insulated around its joints with polyurethane foam , the dehumidifier uses a directional fan as well to move air around, the expense of running seems to be low and currently approx 9 or 10p per day. Have yet to try 2 hours per night to see what happens but well pleased so far. The unit cost £ 177 and well worth the cost.

Thanks for some interesting comments gents

Good comments from Matt and ndiy, I will drop my hours running there are 3 settings 2-4-8 hours, I have used the 8hr initially and expect the cost to drop, who knows 2hours may be sufficient,it was only watching you tube that I learn't that I needed a dessicant type so that saved a mistake. Some time ago I started switching tv-digi boxes etc off at the sockets when we were not using them instead of leaving on stand by, that alone more than covers cost of running the dehumidifier,
