|Thread: Kerry drill model|
You have too much time on your hands!
And yes, I am jealous..........
And yes again, I can't wait to see this finished .
|Thread: VAT criticisms?|
And, sadly, we know how shockingly biased the BBC can be .
|Thread: What shall I build to please the boss?|
Lol, me too. I'd just be making kitchen stuff for myself - mind you, I do need a better coffee tamper (thanks Ian for the suggestion), and I do have a big chunk of suitable brass bar sitting in the metal box................
If you mean what I think you mean, you mean a tamper.
From, a coffee snob .
|Thread: Pratt Burnerd 6 inch 4 jaw independant lathe chuck|

Can you be clear exactly what your lathe nose thread is? In the Q & A on the chuck listed on eBay you say it is 8tpi, but don't show the diameter of the thread, and the bit above doesn't make sense.

|Thread: Bassett-Lowke 2 1/2 inch flying scotsman|
It's a shame we won't see this finished, but that has to be your choice.
However, as Michael says, I can only approve your choice of how to spend the proceeds - I have had Naim and Linn hi-fi for about 30years now .
|Thread: Aircraft General Discussion|
No, Sir, that is a standard Land Rover that crashed into grandad's garden workshop .
|Thread: Using a debt collection agency.|
Ask your solicitor what he thinks of my suggestion.
|Thread: Safety and superglue chucks|
|Thread: Using a debt collection agency.|
You have PM!
Is it a one off debt?
Is it a company or an individual?
Is it over £750?
Do they have the money to pay you?
My background is debt collection..........not touting for business - I am retired now! - but can guide you as to what the right approach might be.

|Thread: Measuring PCD holes|
I was there, been there done that .
And that's how I know .
Friend of a friend needs to be extremely careful in how he has spacers made and fitted if he doesn't want sheared wheel bolts/studs and then the wheel parting company at speed.
The wheel should be located on a spigot that forms part of the hub, as it will be as originally fitted on the car by the manufacturer. If you are making spacers, the spacer needs to be bored with a female spigot housing on its inside face that has a tight fit to the hub spigot. In turn the spacer also needs to have a hub centric spigot machined on its outer face to locate snugly in the wheel centre.
Both female and male spigots on the spacer need to be exactly co-centric with each other, or it can set up a centrifugal imbalance which can be impossible to balance out, and be dangerous as it puts a lot of loading force on wheel bearings and ball joints.
ALL of the wheel bolt /stud clamping effort is designed to be only for that, in other words neither the studs/bolts or their cone shaped mating surfaces are designed to take any lateral shear force, the hub to wheel spigot should take care of that.
If you know all this already, my apologies.
|Thread: Machine Bench on castors|
Noting all this talk about MDF, OSB, chipboard and ply, it will be fascinating to see how the OP gets on with that, given his first post states he is 'welding up a new workbench'!
It is in the right hand side menu, just before half way down, titled 'Engineering books and DVD's'.
|Thread: What's the best place to buy and sell lathes and millers.|
Takes you to all those sources, and so many more.
|Thread: Bore Reducer|
You obviously have far more time on your hands than me, I was fast asleep at 01:10 .
This is now way off original topic, let's leave it here .

|Thread: Broken part of quickchange toolpost|
I can answer 1)
It was probably made in China, and built down to a price, and not up to a quality.
