|Thread: Fitting Chuck Jaws|
To insert jaws of a self centring chuck, this is an easy way.
All jaws should be removed.
Go to empty jaw slot 1. Turn the key until you see the start of the scroll thread cross the slot.
Back off slightly, push jaw 1 in, lightly hold it in, turn the key and engage the scroll thread in jaw 1. As soon as it engages, stop, go to empty slot 2.
Repeat jaw 1 instructions for jaw 2 and then 3.

|Thread: tipped tooling|
Centre height wrong?
Too much tool holder overhang?
Wrong insert tip radius?
Wrong speeds and feeds?
EDIT - hopper posted whilst I was typing!

|Thread: Facing off backwards|
If it works and is safe it isn't bad practice
If you have the right tool tip for the circumstances there isn't a problem.
It's a time saver too!

|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread 2020|
What am I doing in the workshop at the moment? Not a lot!
I moved house in November, no garage at the new house, my workshop contents (largely, not all of it) are currently sitting in a 20' shipping container on the drive!
Planning application currently in for a garage/carport/workshop (the workshop is 6x6 m internal), if all goes well it should be built and the workshop back up and running by around the end of July.
Very frustrating, particularly when something I want is, of course, at the back of the container, and I can't get to it!

I will echo Ron's comments, thank you Jason for producing the series
|Thread: 3HP Compressor quality and noise|
You will almost certainly need a C curve MCB to run it, it will probably trip out a B curve on startup.
|Thread: Mills with tilting heads..?|
I don't think that was the original question

Builders fizzy foam is definitely the answer!
|Thread: Boring bar|
That appears to be a Komet boring bar.
Take a look at the UJ R (RH) bars and inserts at the bottom of page 306 on the attachment:
|Thread: Cast iron cabinet theft|
They frequently go in the back of the wagon accidentally, on bin day. Once in, they don't come out again!
|Thread: At last - no more chattering when parting off!|
I just looked at that. Oh my word! And commentators on the video are praising him!

|Thread: Which Lathe|
First advice is that two of those (the eBay ones) are sourced from China. How do you return them if they are faulty?
As to the other choices, as you appear to be limited/guided/dictated by budget, surely only you can decide where to stop your limit?
|Thread: Cutting tools - what type is most suitable?|
I suspect you are currently having the thought of 'how do I post photographs'..........
You need to create an album, put your photographs in it, and post them from there.

Best excuse of 2019 so far!
|Thread: cutter slippage using ER series collets|
Also make sure there is NO swarf whatsoever in the slots of the collet, this can cause it to bind and not tighten as much as required, particularly if the shank/collet combination is that you are closing the slots up to the minimum (such as a 16mm shank in a 17-16mm collet).
Wherever possible I always use the smallest size ER collet possible, rather than 1mm bigger and trying to close it down to the minimum.
