Thread: Which Milling machine and what is its footprint?

Agree with Bayzyle and Jason, better to leave the head dead square and use a tilting vice or even a vertical rotating table.

Hello Roger and welcome to this excellent forum. It sound like you will be setting up a workshop and, if so, there is plenty of help and advice available here, you have but to ask your questions.

Hello Sam and welcome to the forum. I believe that a couple of posts should do the trick so a reply to this should just about get you there.

Be aware that at is the moderators decide on this and if they are away on holiday it may take a little time.

Hello Ady and welcome. There are a number of clockmakers on here who will doubtless be in touch later. I know that sometimes the colours are intended to identify the types of metal that the tools are intended for but in other cases it just depends on what colour the toolmaker uses!

Again, I'm sure that someone more knowledgable will be along soon.


Thread: Exploding Grinding Wheel

I'm a stand asider also and I think it is also very important to check ANY wheel before mounting it using 'the ring test'.

If you don't know what that is then Google it.

It is not essential to be an expert to have an opinion about anything.

Hello Ian and welcome to the forum.

What sort of things are you hoping to make with your Super 7?


Thread: lead solder
26/06/2020 13:03:32

Thanks for that David, I will need some myself soon and I have always associated CuP as being silver solder suppliers.


Thread: As per above am introducing myself
26/06/2020 13:01:35

Hello Christopher and welcome. Not one myself but there are a few musical instrument makers on here who will, hopefully, be along soon.

Hello Brian (that's a GOOD name) and welcome. It really doesn't matter if you have a workshop full of the latest equipment or if your workshop is the kitchen table, all are welcome.

I'm afraid that I cannot help with the Stirling engines but there are some on here who should be along soon and be able to help.

Hello David, I see what you mean. I'll try to fix it, unless it needs a moderator.

And a little more progress, the front axle and suspension.img_0288.jpg

Thread: Tom Senior Suds Tank

No involvement with this company but this might do the trick, or, contact your coolant supplier.

Might be available in small qtys from a model engineers supplier.

A little more progress, the back axle, bearings and wheel hubs.



Thread: Lollipop maybe?
18/06/2020 16:16:55

The gibs are adjusted by the 2 thumbscrews on the side.

I have an original sales leaflet so I'll have a look.

Had a look but the inside of my box is different

Hello Tim and welcome.What sorts of projects are you hoping to use your workshop for?


Thread: Hi from bucks
16/06/2020 18:03:42

Hello Rich and welcome. That's a different reason for wanting a lathe but I wonder if a cylindrical grinder might be more appropriate, especially for the cylinder itself.

If you see any machinery and want to know more about the make, just about the best site is:

Don't be put off by the name, it's not just lathes nowadays.
