|Thread: Warco WM18 has arrived|
I'm jealous, because my new WM18 was delivered by Warco last August, and it is still sitting on its pallet in my garage under a cover!
The Boxford 280 and Myford Super 7 lathes are also sitting there under sheets too, along with a Centec horizontal mill, and a Clarkson tool grinder......
Before I can set everything up and start using it I have to build a 4.8m long shed at the back of the garage (to remove a lot of the clutter from the garage, to make room for the machinery to be set out properly), plus build a new garage adjoining the existing one, so I can put the car in it.
Building the new garage doesn't affect setting up the workshop, except at the time of doing this I will rewire the existing one to take the machinery, so that is also holding things up.
So, a way to go yet before the place is up and running!

If you are a perfectionist, why are the csk screw heads in your wall bracket out of line?
(Note, that comment is a leg pull, not a criticism ).
And, a serious comment, I will be interested to see if that bracket makes the shed wall resonate like a drum?

Good luck dealing with that eBay seller, I had a nightmare experience with him .
|Thread: Preventing Rust|
Pick a use you use WD40 for, and almost certainly there will be another product that will do the job better.
WD40 - jack of all trades, master of none.......
WD40 is pretty useless for pretty much everything in my experience!
It only has around 5% lubricant content, so isn't much use a a lubricant, or a rust preventative.
In another rust proofing thread someone mentioned that it is also hygroscopic - that will spark off a debate!
|Thread: Second Lathe ?|
Yes, a Boxford 280 and a Myford Super 7.
And two milling machines.........well, vertical, and horizontal!
|Thread: Lathe for sale|
I saw it weeks ago too.
'Owned by a time served engineer'. Hmmm, what did he serve - 20 years in Wormwood Scrubs for impersonating an engineer?!
Not if you stick a number of lengths of insulating tape across two of the edges
|Thread: What's the best way of telling a poster he's wrong?|
'What's the best way of telling a poster he is wrong?'
That largely depends on who the poster is!
There are a couple here where you would be better saying nothing at all, no names mentioned, natch.......
With them, it would be much simpler to just go outside and bang your head sharply on the wall!
|Thread: Boxford screw cutting|
You will probably get Gary Butterworth reply to you from Boxford. I've bought Boxford 280 stuff from him in the past, and he's been pretty helpful to me.
I agree, I don't think they are too expensive on an individual basis either, but if you bought eight or ten gears, and paid vat, and carriage, you could soon have a bill north of £3-400.
As that's a 'new' Boxford, Boxford have them in stock.
Be prepared for a hit to your wallet though..............

|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread (2017)|
I also commissioned a lathe today.
I picked up a bargain minter of a Super 7 back in October and took it to bits to get it home, as a friend gave me a plastic bush that he needed boring out yesterday, I thought it was time to put it back together .
This afternoon I put the toolslide back on, fitted my Dickson QCTP, refitted the motor, set the pulleys up parallel, wired the motor to the junction box, and away it went (well, after a bit of terminal swopping in the junction box).
Bush sorted .
With a bit of heaving, shoving, brute force and ignorance but surprisingly not any swearing, have just managed to shoehorn an oversize pallet into the last remaining bit of floor space in my workshop (until I build an extension......).
Strapped to the pallet is a Clarkson Mk II tool cutter grinder .
