Welcome along Leon, what a lovely workshop you have set up.
|Thread: Redundancy, electrical|
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.

Welcome along Joey

Look at the WDS catalogue online.

|Thread: Hello from Lincoln|
Welcome along Nick, from a motorcycle tinkerer that used to have a TE20 Grey Fergie.
|Thread: Suspension Bush material|
Material as Hopper has suggested or try glass filled PTFE. I have used glass filled PTFE on motorcycle suspension with good results.
|Thread: FAULTY DRILL BITS !|
I once bought a set of Guhring (spelling ?) drills 6mm to 10mm by 0.1mm From the start I had to grind nearly all of the to get them to cut.
|Thread: hello from Italy|
Welcome along Fabio, enjoy the forum.
|Thread: Inverter or converter|
Robert, like you I have a 3HP lathe and 2HP mill. The lathe does not support star/delta so I bought a Transwave static inverter. The lathe runs fine on the static inverter but the mill would only run for a short time before tripping out. A friend fitted the mill with a VFD for me and all has been well for over ten years. I am not confident to attempt the wiring, best left to the experts.
|Thread: First Lathe - Colchester Triumph (1960s roundhead) vs Warco WM250v|
I was in engineering all my working life and used many Colchester lathes, most of them nice to use. All where worn to some degree. At one place we ran Colchester Triumph 2000, replaced every 5 years totally worn out. industrial lathe's have a hard life in their early days.
|Thread: Too lazy or too stupid?|
I have always been a prolific reader, never watch TV and have only looked at You Tube on a few occasions. Google does get a fair bit of use though.
|Thread: I need to screw cut a 19 TPI thread.?|
Years ago when I had a Southbend lathe and was faced with cutting a 19 tpi thread I cut a slightly sloppy 20 tpi. Over a few pitches that I required it worked but not ideal or correct.
|Thread: hi from Belfast ...|
BASS 666 Welcome along to the forum. I am not a Myford man so no idea about the attachment. I do get over to Belfast two or three times a year when my Wife visits her family and I watch the motorcycle racing. Enjoy the lathe.
10 TPI will be just what you need. I only keep 10 and 14 TPI blades and always cope.
|Thread: New member|
Welcome along Trevor, enjoy the forum and metalwork.
|Thread: Learn to use a metal lathe|
Good luck with your request, I am to far away to help but a nice thing for a local person to do.
|Thread: hallo from stoke-on-trent|
Welcome along Graham, I have not got an answer for you but this should bump the question up to the top. I know some online charts may help but someone will be along to advise you.
