Nope....He's obviously made a calculated asessment and "the internets your friend" if his mind changes.

Thankfully, there are others on the forum willing to be a little more helpfull.

Tell me Bob, do you have a lot of friends ?

Great news Brian.

Glad you got it sorted.

Hi Bri,

I would remain convinced, for the moment, that the tacho reading is more dynamic.

Can you post some photos of the general gubbins ?

Hoping to help,

Hi Brian,

Can you post a photo of the top of the spindle ?

With cover removed.

I'm watching this space.

A bit like a majority of accidents happening within 3 km of your home.

Have you thought about moving ?

Hi Martin I get those tips from JB Cutting Tools. They usually have a stall or two at classic bike shows (Stafford), steam fairs or model engineering shows. I think you can order on-line too although I haven't tried that yet. I don't know the technical specification for the tips, but if you ask Jenny she will give you the same ones, very good quality. About £3.50 each Silver or Gold I think they are the same spec, gold is prettier though!


I order regularly through their online shop.

Their website is great to navigate and the whole process very simple.

Is this a new system for posting questions? We put the answers first then get round to posting the question. 🤪. Dave W

That would ensure some decent thread shift laughlaugh

Hello Bri,

I had the same problem on my Weiss.

Look under the cover at the top of the spindle. There is a plate which runs through a sensor.

This became contaminated with grease. Gave it a clean, and it worked as it should.

I could send a photo in the morning, if that helps.

+1 NDIY,

The perpetrators are deluding themselves.

Wrong is wrong and a selective interpretation of the law will not change that.

Thank you.

A favourite jingle comes to mind:

Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

No doubt we shall be prosecuted together for copyright infringement!

Nice lathe, by the way.

My thoughts are with you, Mick.

Here's to a successful and speedy recovery.

It is a truism, that one will never have something for nothing.

Horribly tragically sad.

So sorry for the club.

Thread: Rudder Bushes on Boat

Yes Craig, another hobby that demands deep pockets.

She's moored just up from the Bodinnick Ferry, at Fowey, in Cornwall.

I think it's called Wiseman's Creek, or similar.

I'll post up my attempts, once done.

ATB, Daniel

Forgot the obvious one, Lignum Vitae.

Regards Ian.

wink 2 .... I even briefly considered bronze

Thank's Frank & Craig, for the suggestion.

I'd already been off to the stockists. They were short on Delrin, so I bought a length of HDPE.

I hope that will work.

For clarity, the physical damage to the old bushes (all of it), was the result of my father's efforts in extracting them. He has since told me that the top bush had no play at all; and the bottom one had about 1/4" (6mm), side to side.

disgustdont know !!!

For those who may be interested; here are a couple of pics, of said boat.



Thank's again for your interest and help.

ATB, Daniel
