Yes, it is Neil.

I believe the artist has achieved his objective. Producing such powerful images, where we have to question our own sensibilities.

I still maintain, however, that he maintains the position of a neutral documentalist.

Thread: Work holding?
21/09/2019 20:11:56

Probably, a lot depends on whether the op needs to skim the od of the original bar.

Will the parent bar pass through the spindle bore, etc, etc ?

It's unclear what level of precision is required for this job.

Your link doesn't seem to work, Phil.



Thread: Anthropocene

I interpreted the video as a catalogue,or observation, of human activity.

I didn't feel as if the artist was really trying to suggest any other point.

Maybe it's our own insecurities that make us view those images negatively.

Ducking for cover .....



Thread: CRT Free!

laugh Good video.

Although, he was trying to maximise the effect.

I had imagined putting said crt face down with a tarp or blanket over it.

As you say, Brian, there will still be high velocity glass shards flying around.

Thank's for the link.

At the risk of sounding obtuse, and most certainly not wishing to play Devil's Advocate;

Where is there the slightest risk involved, with an implosion ? However violent it may be ?

If you reverse the motor on a saw, will it cut things back together again?



Thread: Why are insert toolholders so expensive?
10/09/2019 20:37:26

As you say, Neil, the boring bars I was referring to, do have the through coolant option.

As I don't use that, I feel I may have paid over the odds, for what I really need.

Hi Steve,

As you mentioned, JB's prices are absolutely reasonable.

I recently made a sort of binge order with Jenny, and I'm really happy with what was supplied, for the price. These are my goto tools.

I did splash out with an industry supplier for my boring bars, but I remain unconvinced that, for someone in my situation, the extra expense was justified.

I've recently been looking at Aliexpress (?), and the prices of inserts there do seem worth a try.

Thread: Why does the micrometer have a second knurled segment

Posted by vintage engineer on 06/09/2019 10:09:56:

When I worked in Africa the workshop temperature was average 120F and the inspection room was 70F! We used to have a conversion chart so we could make the tolerances on the drawings. Assembly could be a nightmare when fitting bronze bushes into steel!

Hi Vintage,

Are you sure you're replying to the right thread ?




06/09/2019 21:11:05

I don't think so, David

This is now getting silly and VERY unhelpful.


Hi All,

Chris has had his original question answered succinctly and sensibly.

The later comments are innocent light hearted humour. I found them a lovely start to my day, almost making me laugh out loud. What is so wrong with that ?

The great advantage of a forum, is that if you don't like the direction a particular thread is taking, you can simply read a different thread.

I do sincerely hope that innocent humour and banter is not going to fall victim to censure as well.

Thank's for the laugh this morning guys.

I think you summed it all quite succinctly in your last sentence.

Perhaps it's HDPE.

As I've been given to understand, HDPE is less affected by humidity.
