|Thread: homemade slip roll|
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|
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
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?|
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
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: New WD40 Can|
Thats similar Nick, but the yank ones have a larger diameter and look altogether more robust, and £40 !;?"^%"? Crikey but thanks for the link
Abom79 on you tube has good size spray cans which can be filled up and given a squirt of air, I have looked round uk and can't find similar, I generally use Duck Oil bought by the gallon decanted into plastic spray bottles which don't seem to last long but hey ho
|Thread: Mounting a new chuck|
Arn't the chucks as Mark describes which have holes through them used to mount chuck on a rotary table using tee bolts the threaded holes in back of chuck for mounting on lathe ?
|Thread: What has happened to fly spray?|
I am usually beset by a single fly, after trying the best part of a can it eventually expires then almost immediately replaced by another fly, I am sure they are lined up in a distribution system wjhich releases one at a time just to get right up my nose, or perhaps it is the original fly which I didn't kill in the first place
Puzzled of Dorset
Not sure what all this is about,but as trade with europe will continue after liberation day what's the problem?
|Thread: Lubricating my Warco WM14 Mill|
This is a good question, I tried to work out where to oil the gear cluster but didn't find any oiling point. I removed the sight glass and squirted some oil over the gears but as the head casting has no base the oil just ran out all over the place, all i do now is to use some grease applied through the sight glass hole to the gears and so far no problems
|Thread: Come on you clever people|
I think I can see a couple of Druids lurking in the undergrowth 😨
|Thread: A good quality oil can..?|
I think I have been persuaded to buy one of these Reilang cans, the 200ml metal one hopefully will sort the ball oilers
