|Thread: Need help with meddling pillar drill.|
A lot of extension leads have trip switches attached to the socket outlet, check the lead on something else.
A wire tester will not tell you if you have a circuit, the neutral may be broken.
Your button hole scissors have a small rachet stop for setting the cut length of the hole. Other models used a screw through one arm to set the cut.
|Thread: EGAMASTER 'MasterGrip' Pipe-Wrench or clones|
I see Sulco NZ have one for about 210$ plus tax, not one you'd favour I think.
|Thread: Cooled Astro Cam Conversion|
A telescope pivot?
|Thread: How to wire a 4QD controller|
Have you tried the 4qd website, they have diagrams there.
|Thread: Hi all|
Welcome and enjoy.
|Thread: Your ideal holiday|
Narrowboat on the UK canals.
Slow and quiet.
|Thread: Water pump shaft clearance?|
Might be a silly question but is the pump motor section full of water otherwise a dry running pump will be noisy.
|Thread: Grid Frequency [mains electricity]|
This subject was broached some time ago I believe.
One of the problems with maintaining a stable frequency is the inputs from renewable energy. The wind and solar input to the grid will upset the status quo so that the base power generating equipment has to back down to prevent a rise in frequency.
When the wind drops and the clouds cover the sun the drop in frequency means the base power has to come on line quickly to maintain the power levels. With insufficient standby generating equipment there is likely to be brown outs or cuts happening more often.
|Thread: Bulking problem?|
Would drilling the diameter that you want through a length of good wood. Then cut the wood along the length so that you end up with two halves.
Heat the horn and then clamp it between the two wooden moulds.
I expect that you would need various sizes so that the horn diameter is reduced in stages.
|Thread: Hieroglyphics on a Wehlen & Co clock face|
They look similar to printers typeface marks, if you look at some of those in the attached link they have the vertical line crossed with several horizontal ones.
|Thread: my work|
Nice looking models, congratulations.
Have you seen any of the engines from Jan Ridders? Videos, details and plans from his website, here **LINK**
|Thread: Faulty LED|
Perhaps the new lamp is faulty.
|Thread: Barrier Cream|
There is a preservative used in cosmetics, including soaps, shampoos etc called methylisothiazolinone which can cause skin problems.
We've had to stop allowing it in our house as we both started suffering from cracked/dry skin.
A web search will bring up lots of reports but I have only included the Wiki link here as there are links there as well.

|Thread: Recent threads|
I think it is difficult to be non-offending to everyone due to the nature of us all.
In the recent past I have been politely told off for a reply I posted which was, in hindsight, deserved.
At the time of posting I had come from a different forum which sometimes needs a lot of tongue biting so had my sarcastic head on. This of course was not needed here but until it is pointed out I was oblivious too.
Writing in public I believe requires the same rules as cutting something - measure twice, cut once or type it, read it, digest it and if you're happy with it, then post it.
|Thread: air blast cooling for mill - solenoid control ?|
I would run it through a separate power relay. If the solenoid coil fails it could pull down the motor as well.
|Thread: Drawing for a miniature quarter turn valve|
Are you looking for construction drawings or layout drawings, also what size miniature?
Basic valve layout/data .... **LINK**

Sometimes known as the major diameter IIRC.
Table here **LINK**
|Thread: New member intro!|
Ah, dear Sharjah. I worked on the HVAC systems at the airport in the mid 70s. Interesting places compared with the UK.
Welcome to the forum Arsath.
|Thread: tallow sticks|
You can get tubs of tallow from places like Amazon. Fill the hole with a spatula of some sort.
