|Thread: small cast iron flywheel|
Probably not ideal but have you looked at cast iron casters?
An sample here on eBay

We're typing too fast for each other I think.

|Thread: What's the best alternative to 'loctited'|
Just been having a quick look around the Loctite website and came across the term "retain".
Their retaining compounds seem to cover usage from loose to interference fits.
I think retain is a good choice because it doesn't imply a non-failing joint that words such secured can do.
|Thread: Compressor - stand on end?|
The reservoir can be mounted however you wish but the compressor needs to be kept the right way up to ensure correct lubrication.
|Thread: power hacksaws|
There is some info available from http://www.lathes.co.uk/wicksteed/
A picture shows "use light hydraulic oil" which doesn't help a great deal does it?
[Edit] Been reading a bit from here https://www.crownoil.co.uk/lubricants/all-you-need-to-know-about-hydraulic-oil/ I would suggest an ISO 32 or 46.

|Thread: I/C Running on gas|
A simple needle valve can be used to regulate the gas flow, that is all that is used for plumbers blowtorches etc.
|Thread: Smoke Generator 5" Diesel Locomotive|
Lots of smoke generators on Google but try here...
No info on runtime sadly.
|Thread: Myford Tachometer|
Are you saying that the tacho does not work?
If so, have you tried reversing the poles of the magnet?
|Thread: Oilers simple Myford ML4 mandrel|
Some here **LINK** don't know what size you need.
Google "small cup oilers".

|Thread: Adeptus Propellus|
Reading a tale from lathes.co.uk there was a fellow who fitted a 1/4hp 1400rpm motor to his Adept, no doubt via countershaft.
A larger motor will only give problems if you get a jam-up when working and the motor can overcome your jam. It might be able to cause more damage because of its extra strength. Perhaps make sure that your belt drive runs somewhat slack so that it can slip if it needs to.
|Thread: WM14 Mill Drill lubrication|
Seems to be a popular question, have read of this older thread....
|Thread: Governor for the Muncaster engine|
Do these drawings help at all, pages 24 and 25 of the document.
Looks very good, quite jealous.
|Thread: Hello from Devon|
Yes, welcome Ron.
Seems like you've joined the part-built workshop team like me.

|Thread: Aldi 3 drawer steel toolchest|
Mousehole could provide a means of securing the toolbox to the workshop perhaps.

If you save it carefully for two months you might be able to treat yourself to a cup of coffee whilst out shopping.
