Ho Ho indeedÂ
|Thread: propane brazing|
Any oxygen with propane will give a good flame, most commercial users working on sites nowadays don't use acetylene but propane as acetylene is not allowed on site.
|Thread: Workshop Heating|
As V8eng has suggested but a bit cheaper is this dual sensor data logger. You could then record inside and outside shed temperatures.

|Thread: Bench grinders|
Simon, it seems to be based on the speed of the object hitting the lense.

Try here, not free...
|Thread: Guy Martin - WW1 Tank - Channel 4|
Very true John but let's be honest, most weapons have to be built with a limited life span don't they?
Agreed Brian, I didn't see the parade on the 12th but thought the tank was a static display. I know that when this replica (from War Horse film) was shown at Trafalgar Square chequer plate was laid on the road surface for the tank to run on.
Excellent programme, I was surprised that the Council had originally agreed to the Idea in the first place.
Can you imagine the damage those metal tracks would have done to their nice posh pavements?Â

|Thread: Rotary converter|
Unless it has recently changed the accepted voltage tolerance in the UK is 415 -6% +10% which gives you 390 low and 456 high so you should be okay.
How is the amperage though?

|Thread: Kiln control.|
Interested to know what you will be using this kiln for, 1300°C is a lot of heat.
|Thread: Acetylene regulator / propane|
Acetylene bottles have left hand threads I'm not sure about propane but would recommend checking.
|Thread: Kiln control.|
A friend of mine built his own kiln using 240v and a simple temperature controller that used a solid state relay (ssr).
So far no problems melting aluminium or brass.
[Edit] Something like this...

|Thread: Barely can spell 'lathe', looking to get into the hobby|
Are you just rude and obnoxious to everyone or do you save it for just a few select members?
I know that I could select the "ignore" button but why should I give in to small minded people like you?
|Thread: Hello from west dorset|
A warm welcome to you Paul.
|Thread: Missing Valve Linkage.|
I wonder whether there should be more machinery above which is now missing.

|Thread: Is there an Air-Con 'leak detectorist' in the house ?|
The oils used range from mineral oil, polyester oils and other esters.
Generally you added the the dye in minute amounts because it spread everywhere very quickly.
With refrigerant systems we didn't want anything in the system that shouldn't be there normally such as, no moisture, only oil and refrigerant.
Don't forget your black light detector.
Read this document for dosing etc...

Aren't our minds magical?
|Thread: Warco BH600G carriage stop|
|Thread: Brass shaping|
Would a Dremel with a burr head cut out the 'O's.
