|Thread: UK or chinese source for ER20 collet nut "hook/c" spanner|
I thought ER20 chucks were spanner flats not notched.
|Thread: Linisher cuts out, what to do...?|
Remember that you want a motor rated MCB fitted.
Sorry, just reread my post above, should of course read "13amp" not 24.
An approximate inrush current for that size motor would be 40 odd amperes so I'm not surprised that the little 24amp fuse keeps blowing.
A proper overload and mcb need fitting.
Mind you, it could have a faulty starting capacitor and we're all barking up the wrong tree.
|Thread: Chinese Electric Cars|
I see in the newspaper today the electrical suppliers are saying that the average UK household will be unable to recharge an electric car in a reasonable time because the main fuse is undersized.
Or, you can charge it but not boil a kettle or heat water at the same time.
|Thread: (Tooling design help please) Die Cutting / Punching non ferrous sheet|
Russ B, industrial heat exchangers such as air conditioner coils use aluminium fins over copper tube.
Their process however uses thin wall tube, the fins are positioned and then a ball bearing, eg, is pushed down the tube to make it slightly oversize and thereby grip the fins.
|Thread: What Material for 5C collet Rack|
I have a range of ER25 collets which I store in an ice-cube tray.
I then screwed it to the wall with a wedge to kick the bottom out.

|Thread: Health and Safety shoots down entire RAF|
Wholeheartedly agree with you.
I thought Shoreham was due to pilot error not mechanical failure.
|Thread: 1/6" x 28tpi tap & die.|
Have you tried Wiseman Threading Tools,Â **LINK**
They offer a "specials" service.
Do they burn with a good flame?
What configuration are the wicks in?
|Thread: KWh question|
Checked out a Smart Meter manual as you requested and it states..
The main 100A contactor can be Â disconnected locally or remotely by the Utility.
This can be driven directly or driven by the meter at load limiting thresholds
Whose half truth ?

You can't beat a good Staffie.
|Thread: Who made this?|
The boilers not theirs but the speed governor looks like a Wilesco model.

|Thread: Is Knurling a health hazard?|
This type of thread always gets a thumbs up from me, you begin to realise the vast and diverse knowledge base that we have contact with now-a-days within a relatively small family of like minded people.
If I can add my little towards skin care, a few years back my wife started getting cracked skin on her hands, very similar to 'old Harry's 'ands' from years gone by. This we found was due to a preservative in hand washes and hand creams, also shampoo and cosmetics.
The product is called methylisothiazolinone , seeÂ **LINK**Â for more info. Since we removed this from our house and usage both of us had improved skin conditions.

|Thread: Motor rotation|
If you look inside the terminal lid there should be a picture/graphic showing the link settings for star and delta.
|Thread: Source of Silver Steel|
Slightly off topic but having looked at the OP link to GROUNDFLATSTOCK.COM they have useful heat treatment data sheets for all of the products.
|Thread: Motor rotation|
Agreed, it is a three phase motor, it can be run on 230v single phase but will probably overheat, as you have found.
The single phase method is called the Steinmetz method. Our friend Google will find quite a few useful results.
