|Thread: warco lathes.|
I have been on the lookout for exactly that for some while - a 'near mint condition and fully kitted Harrison M300'.
I'd love to find one for £5k (the price of the Axminster), but the going rate for what I have seen is nearer £7 or £8k .
If it meant they wouldn't do anything otherwise, what is he supposed to do?
Are you saying you would not have done the same in Antony's case if it were you? .
|Thread: Cutting Speed Table|
And if your windings start smoking, you probably need to back off the feed rate .
|Thread: Myford Beds?|
No offence taken .
The only reason I didn't mention it is because I belong to lots of forums (too many probably, that's why I have so many jobs on my to do list ), with many varied interests, and some are really touchy about eBay, some aren't. One shooting forum is sponsored by an online retailer (and a good one) so I can understand his position.
As I can't remember which ones are touchy about eBay and which aren't, I tend to err on the side of caution
|Thread: Brammer belting|
You push a link towards the next one (compress the belt) so the pin pushes through the split part into the hole, and twist the stud out of the hole.
My Dad showed me how to do this in circa 1966, so apologies if my memory is a bit hazy .
That's NuTLink type belting
|Thread: Myford Beds?|
I had a deeply unpleasant experience recently with the gentleman from Lincolnshire.
You may not, but that's probably enough said on an open forum.
Are you thinking of Chris Dooley - doog12010 on you-know-where
|Thread: Degreasing box section|
I use cellulose thinners for degreasing steel, as it evaporates. Cheapest one I can get possible, bought in 5L tins.

|Thread: Myford 10 accessories|
The boat type holder would be a 4 way holder, and not a QCTP, would it not, so I assumed (dangerous, I know) that Graham is referring to the latter, the Dickson type.
I believe the Myford QCTP is a different one for the 7 and 10, as original equipment. Certainly 'new' Myford list the current QCTP as fitting the 7/S7 and 254, but NOT the ML10.
Whilst they are physically interchangeable, I am not sure they are the same height, and thus cause the problems you mention.
The rear toolpost is different from the 7/S7 amd ML10 too.

That definitely wouldn't fit Michael .

On a pure point of accuracy, the ML10 is 3.25" centre, not 3 3/8 .
The clamping flange is different on the 7 and 10 travelling steady castings - and if one would fit the other, I can't see why Myford would have gone to the trouble of casting a new travelling steady for the ML10 when it was introduced in 1968, if the steady for the 7/S7 that had been around for 20 years before it would fit.
Sorry, but both the travelling steady and the QCTP are different, and unique to both machines.
As you say both are much more expensive for the ML10, largely dictated by their relative rarity compared to the ML/S7 versions.
|Thread: Any Chemists (rust)|
I know exactly the ones you mean, because I use them too. Excellent, but expensive.
You can also use Napier VP90, a product primarily for stopping guns going rusty, I suspect it has the same active ingredient as the little pots - the Napier ones are sachets around 75mm square, and will probably protect a bigger area.

Will do happily, but i'm not sure where it might fall on my to do list, which is vast!
I have a 5m shed to build from scratch, then empty my garden toolshed and refelt the roof, then put all the non garden stuff from the toolshed, and all the woodworking stuff from my garage, into the new shed.
This then gives me room in my garage to finally set out the two lathes, two millling machines, Clarkson tool cutter grinder, two pillar drills and a linisher that are just in the corner in a jumble - but before I set these up I have to put a new consumer unit in the garage and totally rewire it, so I can run three machines from a rotary converter.
That's my 2017 taken care of! .
But seriously, I have a whole tote tray full of Clarkson tool cutter attachments that are seriously rusty, I have just ordered 5L of the Frost's Evaporust to try out on them, so thanks Nick for the heads up .
It can keep the Super Adept company .
|Thread: U-Profiles from Square Tubing|
In the workshop, there is no such thing as 'cheating', only 'solutions' .
|Thread: Parafin blowlamp|
Yep, my dad had paraffin blowlamps and paraffin heaters too, plus Tilley and hurricane lamps as well.
|Thread: Cutting fins on an IC engine|
Does your parting off tool have enough side relief /taper ground into it?
