Here is a list of all the postings Chris Evans 6 has made in our forums. Click on a thread name to jump to the thread.
|Thread: Quick Machinists Jacks|
M12/M8 adaptors available commercially for pennies. Not worth the effort to set up.
Over the years I have made many jacks, some fancy tapered turned affairs others just a rectangular block. Before then I pressed a tee nut into service with a suitable bolt.
Welcome along to the forum Hoss, from another not far from central England. What machinery do you have ?
|Thread: HAS ANYONE MADE A SINE BAR ?|
Yes several over the years. Most used are a 2" and a 3", very handy in the vice. 5" good on angle plate set ups.
I have a 10" sine bar free to anyone who wants it, just cover postage. Chris.
|Thread: Yet another 'which mill shall I buy'|
My Bridgeport does all I need. There are some about with the 36" table, don't come up for sale very often but desirable for those with limited space.
|Thread: Reaming - depth of cut|
If using a brand new reamer do as said above and try in some scrap. New reamers tend to cut big on the first pass or two.
|Thread: Metal supplies|
Nick, where in the world are you ? Here in the Midlands we have many stockholders willing to sell small quantities for cash. I do buy small amounts and also complete bar lengths at more than reasonable cost.
Welcome along Marcus, enjoy the forum.
|Thread: Uhrenindustriemuseum Villingen, Germany.|
Kienzel went on to make Vehicle Tacographs now owned by Continental.
|Thread: John Stevenson|
John was in my thoughts last week when I drove to Long Eaton.
|Thread: Hello from the Netherlands|
Welcome along Jurrian from another |Bridgeport user.
|Thread: Problems with "The Home Shop Machinist" website?|
I am getting the same as you Old Mart. Also using edge.
|Thread: Need Carbide Mill Cutters honed?|
I may be able to help in a few weeks time, I only took delivery of a cutter grinder this week and have to install it and practice on a few cutters.
|Thread: Cheap ER collet advice please|
Plus 1 for ARC and Chronos. A £ more on 6 or 8 collets is forgotten in short time. I use 5C collets on my lathe and have never bought one that was not up to scratch.
|Thread: Morning from the Midlands|
Richard, which bit of the Midlands are you in ? May be useful to know if you are searching for something one day. Chris.
Welcome along Richard from another Midlander.
|Thread: Cheap Lathes in Hertfordshire|
Re the lathes and to bump the thread back up. The sellers details/contact are email@example.com.
I've looked on Tony's site it is not the same lathe. I have e-mailed Tony to this effect.
Bazyle , thanks for the reply. I will have to try and get the pictures from the other forum but being a computer dummy do not know how. I will look on Tony's site to compare the two.
I am a member of the Vintage Motorcycle club forum.
There is a post on there for a Muir and Co lathe at £150 and a Smart and Brown Sable at £450.
The seller is selling for a Widow and they are buyer collect.
Any interest and I will give the link. I am in the Midlands so to far away for me to offer assistance. Chris.
