|Thread: Removing Grit after Lapping Ways|
Ultrasonic Cleaning looks promising
What Ultrasonic Cleaning Can do
Its Cleans Oil, grease, polishing compound, waxes, cutting fluids, lapping compound, dirt, swarf, residues, resin, silicones, carbon deposition, scale, finger prints, solder flux, plating salts, blood, ink, photoresist, lacquer, paint etc
I believe you are saying your abrasives have embedded in the cast iron
Next time it may be worth consider using Timesaver or Garnet lapping compound (supposed to break down)
Only thing i can think of to get it out is have it hand scraped
|Thread: Alan Stepney’s Model Engineering Website|
You could try the wayback machine
|Thread: Cheap 3D printers|
I have a P802MA from well know online auction site, after fixing it to a piece of 50mm board (for stability) and adding two 210A MOSFETS(to move the high power load off the main board) one for the bed and one for the hot end, and also a Scrub Surface Hot Bed Sticker (so prints stick to the bed and can be removed)I have been pleased with it
|Thread: PLA Filament Breakage|
There is very little cost to cutting a meter or two and giving it dip in boiling water. so i see no reason for anyone to just desregard this without testing, it has worked for me
The filament is dry before you bin it , give it a 5 sec dip in boiling water then let it dry
|Thread: Help needed making Harold Hall's Grinding Rest|
I just finished making that rest last week and say the 5.2mm holes are not critial size, you will need a little play to aline the leadscrew and center pin
