|Thread: Slitting saw speeds|
Start off slow and increase speed until it cuts without building up any heat.
|Thread: Clarkson Tool & Cutter Grinder Fixture|
Does anyone have drawings to make a universal head for a Clarkson tool & cutter grinder?
|Thread: Hello, Alexander master toolmaker|
Mine is model number 1489. & PGIE 20degree PA
I have one too. I was told that the designer was a jew who fled Germany with the design during the war. I have a vertical and the over arm for horizontal milling and it can shift a lot of material in this mode. I also have a slotting head from a another copy of the Deckel. I am looking for a tilting table and a dividing head. I did manage to buy a complete set of fed gears from a chap in Rugely who made them in batches.
|Thread: Another newbie question!|
You could use the steady to support the end of the bar.
|Thread: How many threads please?|
The ideal is 1 1/2 times diameter
|Thread: Copper Round Head Rivets|
|Thread: Some big tools|
I know what you mean about CI dust! I used turn 72" dia mill rollers that where 100 yrs old!
Well I don't what those big machines are if they are not machine tools!
|Thread: The UK Space Program (Its not NASA, its NONO)|
Blame the politicians! They have always cocked anything that makes a profit!
|Thread: 1/2” bore slitting saw suppliers|
Use one with a bigger bore and make a stepped washer.
|Thread: Crumbling Monkey Metal|
Dixie Magnetos from America are notorious for failing due to hydrogen embrittlement. Because there is electricity passing through the body when the engine is running, any moisture gets gets split into oxygen and hydrogen. Most non critical aluminium castings on vintage cars contain large quantities of zinc. SU carbs are so bad you can only weld them with zinc based filler rods.
It's in the atmosphere trapped in H2O
It's caused by hydrogen embrittlement. A naughty trick foundries do on aluminium castings is to add zinc to bulk out the aluminium. This comes to light when you try to weld the crap!
|Thread: Some big tools|
|Thread: Free Electricity|
There was a rumour that someone in America built a huge coil under a powerline to create inducted electricity. Don't know if it would work?
|Thread: lathe to cut 26tpi|
£8900 + vat for a new Boxford and they put cheap crappy hand wheels on the machine!
|Thread: Hole cutter|
I would drill a hole down one side and use a bandsaw to cut out a 3" billet then bore the rest out.
|Thread: More help please|
It can only be your gearing is out or something is moving in relation to your gearing.
