Don't forget to include power losses for the transmission, belts/pulleys etc.

|Thread: Am I missing something?|
Yes Stewart it is annoying as when I get home one magazine goes straight into the recycling bin.
|Thread: Hi all|
What more can a man ask for - a motorcycle and a shed - heaven.
|Thread: Eccentricity / Run-Out|
I sometimes wonder about galvanic erosion due to the odd bits of metal debris that falls out of pockets etc.
|Thread: Split Collet Fan Hub Puller|
Don't see any evidence of anti-stuck lubricant.
Perhaps a good soaking might encourage movement.
|Thread: Silver soldering torches|
Have you tried Mapp gas with torch?
Available from Home Depot supposedly..about 68$
|Thread: Looking for an MT2 Milling Chuck.|
If you're not in a rush have a look at BangGood for collets and chucks. I've been pleased with mine.
|Thread: Removing an overtemperature thermostat.|
If you don't mind draining the boiler then get a new thermostat pocket as well as the thermostat.
Unscrew the pocket, throw it away and fit the new one.
|Thread: Can titanium be soldered to brass?|
A quick and short answer is NO.
Certainly not in the average shed.
Some general examples of the methods and problems given here....Â **LINK**
|Thread: Eccentricity / Run-Out|
In that case can I recommend LG inverter machines.
They're not cheap but was told about them by a friend who runs his own white goods repair business. He has installed them in old peoples homes where heavy use is likely and, to date he hasn't had any breakdown calls to them.
The wife is very happy with ours, and that's the important part.
|Thread: Linisher cuts out, what to do...?|
Good news, just make sure that there is a spare 13amp switched socket outlet for the tea kettle.
|Thread: heating manifold|
Just a thought, your feed and expansion tank needs to be metal.
A plastic tank with boiling water and steam flowing through it can soon collapse; you then gave a very hot shower flowing down through your ceilings/floors.
Thank you Harold.
|Thread: Propane / Oxy|
If by turbotorch you mean the mini twin bottle kit then I have used that type when working on refrigeration pipework repairs.
They do a good job but the burn time is dependent on the size of the oxygen bottle in use. A small bottle would give me around 15 minutes, now you need to work out how expensive to run these units are.
A good MAPP gas torch can do most things and with a twin burner head you can cook most things.
|Thread: Lidl sandblaster|
Slight problem for me on that one, no air compressor - damn.
|Thread: flexible tubing for steam|
Came across this website which may be useful.
I have used small bore plastics/nylons up to 30 bar with olive/compression fittings in days gone by.
|Thread: tnmg inserts|
Not knowing whereabouts in the world the original poster resides makes being always right a little difficult.
A good code list here>Â **LINK**
What are the materials of the bars and the wheels, sorry can't see from here.
|Thread: Motor for Chester Champion Mill|
