The power of Google ....

Try "self locking grub screws" to get started.
Some similar here - **LINK**
|Thread: Piston rings|
Why not use what is specified, worst price I've seen was £4 a metre.
|Thread: Yet more confusion!|
Who jumped and where?

A bridge rectifier does not control voltage only ensures DC voltage.
|Thread: Nylon for axle boxes ?|
Try looking at Acetal.
|Thread: Jan Ridders Pressure Controlled 2 stroke Engine|
Congratulations, well deserved.
|Thread: Workshop headphones|
If you search the net for "wireless ear defenders" you will find quite a range.
|Thread: 1.5 hp dc motor|
What machine did it come from, this might gives clues to the controller ?
|Thread: Merry Christmas from Australia|
Thank you and the seasons greetings to you and yours.
|Thread: Combi Boiler fault finding|
Only thing that I would add is to start the job in the morning, then if you need something else the chances are the suppliers are still open.
|Thread: Source of Aluminium Lined Plastic Water Pipe?|
Not sure about antenna length effects here but two possible alternatives maybe -
Plastic tubing made around a spiral metal wire. The wire is continuous but going around the tube diameter could triple (pi*d) the length.
Second option is externally braided tubing, a bit like brake hoses etc.
|Thread: Mini-Lathe Repair|
My mini-lathe (Chester) has instructions how to lubricate the head, a bit hap-hazard but there all the same. Check your instruction set.
Mind you, a good stall can do all sorts of damage if you're unlucky.

|Thread: Unimat tangential tool holder|
Here is one from earlier with handrawn plans...
|Thread: The demise of the High Street|
Let's be honest this all started years ago when the supermarkets started building outside the town centres.
We, well lots of us, started shopping there and it was followed by people complaining that their local butcher/baker or greengrocer had shut. Without the staple shop trade the town centres were bound to collapse and yet we still blame everything/everyone else about the state of our local high street.
It's not going to change back so we have to do the best that we can with what's left.
|Thread: Schmidt Couplings|
Found a similar coupling in the Brammer pdf **LINK**
Look for Ruland couplings.
|Thread: Mars Insight has Landed|
Danny a nice bit of family history to pass on.
Mind you, someone up there now has a list of names responsible for all the bits of litter we have been placing on the planet. The penalty notice is in the post.
|Thread: Space Ship leaves Earth's Atmosphere|
Excellent, what always amazes me with these ISS shots is the amount of 'debris' flying around them.

Some rev counters used a feed from the alternator, normally on diesels.
