|Thread: Storing Machinery In Damp Conditions - Advice Please|
+1 for ACF-50, used to use on my motorcycle and last winter used it on my mini-lathe sat in the shed in the garden.
Also gave the hand tools a wipe over with it.
|Thread: which compressor|
All refrigerant comoressors, electric or mechanical pump vapour, if they pump liquid they very quickly destroy tgeir valves or con-rods.
It is the oil mist mixing with the refrigerant that provides the lubrication to the seals etc.
|Thread: Pumping water up a hill|
Not sure if this is the best option but have you looked into 'ram pumps'. These use the water itself to perform the pumping action.
This **LINK** site is commercial but will give you an idea of what can be acheived.
|Thread: Unknown Lathe|
Sorry, can't see it from here so wouldn't like to guess.
|Thread: Deburing holes|
Use a round file across the hole.
|Thread: which compressor|
Price wise a lot more expensive.
A fridge compressor with starter electrics can be simply plugged into the mains to run.
An auto compressor needs a drive motor, motor pulley, drive belt, 12 volt dc supply to operate the drive clutch and special connectors for the pipeline. Overall, more effort, more noise, more space and more money.
|Thread: Twin Tube HF fluorescent lighting for the workshop|
Just for info but we used to check our contactless tachometers by pointing them at a fluorescent tube to check that they were reading correctly. 3000rpm IIRC.
|Thread: Engineering Workshop Practice books|
Good man, priorities set correctly. Enjoy.
|Thread: Parting off - again, sorry|
Reduce the amount of tool sticking out from toolpost may help a bit.
|Thread: Wyvern cylinder head sealing|
My thoughts as someone who has not made that engine ....
Although you have ground the valves in was the final grinding paste fine enough to leave a smooth surface in the valve seat and on the valve head?
Are the valves fully closed when the rockers are relaxed?
Are the valve springs strong enough to hold the valves closed on the suction stroke?
|Thread: Automatic Centre Punches|
Proverbial youtube link here might help.

|Thread: Engine room telegraph|
According the HMS Belfast, it was used to signal pumping fuel to another vessel.
|Thread: I finished a project!|
Excellent work Neil.
|Thread: Mystery lathe on eBay|
Have you asked the seller for details yet?
|Thread: Joint Round Edge Needle Files|
Ketan, found s site different from above link which details them as used by jewellers and watchmakers, uses shown on link page. **LINK**
|Thread: vapour carburetor|
Have you seen the carbs made by Jan Ridders? They are glass cylinders or glass end plates.
|Thread: Peace Flame|
As Michael has indicated, you do need a pressure regulated output.
|Thread: Crankshaft repairs|
As a novice to this type of work might I suggest getting some basic material to practice the machining work and technique before starting on the final piece.
|Thread: What Is The Most Beautiful 'Thing' In The World?|
Going against V8eng but ...
Simple, a new born baby - human or animal. They are amazing.

|Thread: A Replacement circuit board|
Came across someone who fitted an Ardunio system instead if this is feasible.
