|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
|Thread: Gandalf is broken|
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!
Darwin Award contender!
|Thread: Has to be seen to be believed|
If Stevie Wonder did boilermaking.......
|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.
|Thread: How to repair old King Dick socket extension?|
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.
And an observation, not politically motivated either, in his own words he travels the globe taking images - thus adding to the same impact humans have on the planet, that he captures in his images!
|Thread: Ebay site changes for the worst|
Exactly how I bid, and it frequently works. I bid so late I can't up my maximum bid if outbid, even if I want to, because I probably shouldn't!
|Thread: Picador Grinding Wheel Flanges|
I had suspicions about the wheel washers on my bench grinder, due to a vibration that wasn't cured by replacing the abrasive wheels. I took the pressed steel washers off, put them on the milling machine, and took a truing skim off the outer face to bring them parallel.
|Thread: THIN cutting oil - Suds alternative?|
That was one of the ones I looked at. As you will know probably better than me, product sheets often raise more questions than they answer!
I too, out of curiosity, searched for product sheets before posting my first post, but none I found adequately explained what ISO grade the lubricant oil component was.
There are, of course, many different grades of hydraulic oil (including those used in aircraft control systems), but I suspect that a good grade hydraulic oil is probably a better spec that your average neatcut oil, not the other way round!
Why not? ISO 32 hydraulic oil is actually a good cheap general cutting lubricant for steel.
On steel, for turning/milling, I often cut it dry. Depends on circumstances.
If I feel I need to use a lubricant I am currently using Ambersil Tufcut, just because I have a bottle sitting around.
I also use 'Neatcut' (Google it).
I have a suspicion that Neatcut labelled up by various suppliers is nothing but ISO 32 hydraulic oil.
I have a very low general opinion of today's formulation of WD40. Jack of all trades, master of none. The lubricant content is a mere 5%.
It is, however useful as a lubricant for aluminium (as is paraffin, which is much cheaper).
I have GT85, but I use that as a mountain bike lubricant!
Basically, the more well known branded product, the more you will pay for it, and you don't need to.
