|Thread: John Attlee|
To John and the wider audience,
Please accept my most sincere apology, for my post of yesterday.
I also agree wholeheartedly that it was removed ASAP.
At least you got a warmer welcome from the others on here.
No excuses; I should have known better than to post after a particularly difficut day.
I hope it hasn't put you off the forum.
Once again, I am very sorry for that.
|Thread: Mystery forging|
|Thread: I'm making D reamers on a ML8 please help me get a proper lathe!|
Perhaps a milling machine may be more adapted to yor needs
|Thread: Wonky tables|
|Thread: My First Stationary Engine|
A superb and inspirational thread Ron.
|Thread: Why does everyone disagree with you|
|Thread: Positioning bushes for welding|
+1 to ega's post.
Tack weld, adjust to final position, finish weld;
|Thread: Lathe chuck guards - how many folk use them?|
+ 1 to the above.
The only time my chuck key is in the chuck, is when it is actaully being used.
Rigidly, after that it is replaced into it's hole on the rear splash guard.
This deliberately forced habit has become a reflex, not unlike wearing a car seatbelt.
|Thread: What is it/they called?|
I find that, often, even suppliers can use a variety of names for a given item.
My preferred search engine is Google; I then click on Images, on the results page.
That frequently throws up a lot of the variant appelations of said object, and is very
quick to find what you may be looking for.
Often, after that, it's correct term is usually found in it's description.
|Thread: Broken Handle|
A google image search for Ball Crank Handle throws up quite a lot of results.
|Thread: What to do with a stationary engine|
What a great idea.
|Thread: What is this called?|
Google Reverse Image Search often works well with these kinds of problems.
Why "particularly British" ?
Do you seriously believe that Britain (Gt), is the only country to have contributed to the technological evolution of the human race ?
Do I really need to give you examples, Howard ?

|Thread: Alternative metal sources?|
Thank's guys for the explanations
Thank's for the explanation.
But, oh dearie me .... What a world we have created for ourselves.
Please excuse my ignorance on such matters; but, what are CMM and WEEE ?
|Thread: Would you buy one of these collets?|
Quite possibly a perfectly servicable item.
But, at £19.95 postage to France, I wouldn't consider it.
|Thread: Alternative metal sources?|
I would also find that terribly frustrating.
Is there no legitimate way to make an "arrangement" ?
|Thread: How many Hammers|
Edit ... 17. just found another

You've started me thinking now.
On reflection, I probably have quite a few.
If I can find the Rowntooit, I'll go and count them.
|Thread: Water in fuel|
Will water alone cause rust, in the absence of air (being covered by the fuel) ?
Maybe fit a drain cock to the tank, as per John Fletcher's anecdote.
