|Thread: SCAM WARNING - TAKE CARE SELLING BY CLASSIFIEDS|
I sell quite a lot of stuff abroad through eBay and will only use RM tracked and signed-for service and will only accept PayPal in payment.
In many years I've only ever had one "item not received" complaint.
I responded to PayPal with a scan of the tracking proving it had reached him.
PayPal contacted the buyer and magically the item turned up the very next day!

|Thread: Making torches and pens|
I've never been into pen making but I see them sell very well at craft fairs - and some at high prices!
|Thread: BIG blowlamp ID|
All I could find out is that they were also distributed as Turley & Williams Ltd.
Lots of blow lamps here but nothing quite the same.
|Thread: 2" minnie build|
Great Mal. As a raw beginner I'm following your build with great interest - looking forward to the next instalment!
|Thread: What did you do today (2015)|
Yes of course Clive, please do.

Strange just tried that url and no problems. Ubuntu/Firefox
|Thread: ME's ? What value ?|
... but do they sell for 100s of pounds?
|Thread: Source of hardwood base material|
Wood for turners in 2" square lengths (and many other sizes) are known as spindle blanks rather than bowl blanks.
|Thread: Material options for coloured washers|
I must be misunderstanding you some how as coloured bar Delrin is easily available.
eBay 271957715367 for example and there's many more.
|Thread: Bus and steam engine in a collision.|
We should remember that "Eighteen people were hurt, five seriously".
|Thread: ME 4517|
I recently took advantage of the 3 months for £1 offer for the print edition of Model Engineer's Workshop.
When this is over I may want to subscribe but I'd like one point clarified please.
If I subscribe to the Print+Digital editions to which back issues do I have digital access?
It says just says in the list of benefits “Access back issues” Does than mean all that have ever been published? My subscription to another magazine does (Fine Woodworking) but I'm not sure with your magazine
|Thread: Packaging stupidity!|
I sell on eBay and get through quite a few boxes and lots of packing materials all bought in bulk.
That box and packing would have cost less than 20p.
I agree though that it was not well packed.

|Thread: Mystery Instrument|
The only reference I can find is ...
"In this project a simple mirror stereoscope has been adapted to allow for the stereoscopic inspection of X-ray pictures and a Zeiss 'snap' marker ..."
Not that I'm any the wiser!
|Thread: posting photos?|
See here ...
|Thread: Why reverse a lathes direction?|
It used to be a sacking offence to use a file without a handle - they're cheap enough.
My cheap Asian Shaoxing 9x20 has a security bolt that the prevents the chuck being unscrewed until it is removed.
I know it works.

|Thread: Twist drill speeds|
I have a Ryobi pillar drill with infinitely variable speeds from 400 rpm to 2500rpm. These are purely mechanical being belt driven expanding cones controlled by a lever whilst it's running. It has a digital readout.
It's been very instructive altering the speeds while drilling with different types and sizes of bits into various metals. I've found very little correlation between published drilling table suggestions and what actually works best!
