Thread: Re-boring Grind Wheels
13/05/2022 08:37:42

Just think how many years a grinding wheel lasts, I doubt if it equates to a £ a year.

13/05/2022 08:01:24

Somewhere I have my wheel mounting qualification from a course "Abrasive wheels regulations 1971" (date ?) some of the horrific results shown on the course from incorrectly mounted wheels scared me.

I have a cheap bench grinder that required me to turn new flange washers to get it running true and safe, the pressed washers are dangerous.

Thread: Minimum depth of cut possible with carbide tooling on S7

Plus one for the "GT" inserts.

Thread: Howdy
10/05/2022 08:22:57

Welcome along, what are your interests ?

Thread: Ball bearing cups for bicycle hubs ?
10/05/2022 08:18:43

Some I have come across have a smaller radius than the ball, say 5/64" for a 3/16" diameter ball. For motorcycle use I bin the cup and cone and fit sealed ball races with suitable spindle and spacer although this sometimes means altering the hubs.

Thread: Milling Southampton area?

I can't help being up in the midlands but are we looking at car or motorcycle application ?

Welcome along Phil, what sort of things do you want to do on the lathe ? I do not do model making but tinker around with old motorcycles which dictates a bigger lathe. Enjoy the forum and the lathe when you get one.

Thread: Which beginners lathe is best
05/05/2022 08:50:29

First decide what you want to make on the lathe.

Thread: Question Re Camlock Chuck Fixings
28/04/2022 16:35:16

Are the advertised back plates just showing a generic picture of a cam lock and not the actual article ?

Thread: rotary table
28/04/2022 08:17:43

I had a 10" Hoffman rotary table for many year's, an excellent piece of kit. I sold it and bought a Vertex 10" rotary table because I thought the horizontal and vertical clamping feature of the Vertex would be useful. Reality is I have only used the vertical clamping a couple of times and I regret letting the Hoffman go. A 10" rotary is ideal for my Bridgeport and is about as much as I can lift, I have a 14" rotary used every now and again but that required making a wheeled bench to get on the machine.

Go grab the Hoffman at £150 a real steal.

Thread: Giving an aged look to alloy
23/04/2022 08:22:00

Try a sample offcut in the dishwasher to see what it does to the finish. Maybe all you need ?

Thread: Hello from New Zealand

Hi Leon, Your Rovers are nice cars. I have had a 90 and a 95 P4 Rover as well as driving series Land Rover's for 40 years. Could not afford to keep them and my motorcycles on retirement an the bikes won . Enjoy the forum.

Thread: Looking for help to value items
19/04/2022 18:16:04

I can offer no help other than to point you to the "Leather Museum" Walsall, West Midlands, United Kingdom. Leather work is (was ?) a local trade.

Thread: Hello from New Zealand

Welcome along Leon, what a lovely workshop you have set up.

My iPhone-6 is about to become obsolete.

My Daughters bought me an iphone- 6 some time ago because they thought my old android phone was so yesterday. I have never got used to the iphone and look forward to the excuse to go back to what I had.

Thread: Clutch pedal
01/04/2022 12:05:08

Lathe and four jaw look most likely given your equipment availability. Good luck and if possible post a picture of the completed item.

Thread: Where to sell my Austin 7?
30/03/2022 20:39:12
