|Thread: New old 1950's Myford 7 Lathe still in the crate|
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|
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
|Thread: Hi from Australia, Pick a subject for next post|
Hi Kevin----Elliot 10m for me please
|Thread: Solution found to the World's biggest problem . . .|
Well said JP1, we try to keep our garden for wild life and are rewarded daily by their visits, next door has just bricked the whole front garden up so thats a bit more habitat gone, oh dear 🐦🦉🐝🐞🕸
Mick, also West Dorset
That is a good point Mike
|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
Thank you Neil for those words of comfort
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?|
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|
Truloc 268 or 271 seem appropriate
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
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
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|
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: Tom Senior Major milling machine ... gib or jib .. adjusting|
Someone once remarked that they liked the cut of my gib but to date havn't been able to find my adjustment screw anywhere 😁
