|Thread: insert identification|
iscar try here
They are GIP inserts.
Did they come in a box? The bottom picture looks to show a damaged insert?
|Thread: Workshop Clock|
I think it would compliment my shop clock nicely!
|Thread: Threading 1/8 stainless steel|
I have cut a massive amount of M6 threads in 304 and 316 stainless.
I have found the only cutting to work for me is Rocol RTD liquid.
I only use "spiral entry" HSS dies (any GOOD supplier of dies will know what these are, they do not need backing off).
I would also only use bored soft jaws or ER collet to hold the stock.
I'd guess at 200 rpm if I was to have a go at 1/8" in stainless.
|Thread: The Chocolate Fireguard as designed by Mercedes Benz|
Nice to see Volvo's are not on the list!
I'm a "stick it N and foot brake on" man. NIDY, feel free to stick high beam on, I have auto dimming mirrors
|Thread: The cheapest DRO ever?|
I've done this on one of my lathes. It works very well!
|Thread: Wentworth woodhouse|
I'm sure its going to be a real labour of love!
|Thread: Cheap DRO for Mill|
There are some much better instructions for the "Sino" type DRO units.
I can't paste PDF here, but if any one wants them, message me your email.
|Thread: Presumably this is done using CNC... but even so its impressive|
|Thread: Aldi 3D printer|
My new Aldi printer came today.
To say I'm impressed is an understatement! After having to build my last Fisher one from scratch, I was very happy to printing withing ten minutes!!
|Thread: Impressive Workshop in Germany|
I'd have cleaned up the workshop and cleaned the machines, if John was coming to film me!
Sour grapes indeed!!
|Thread: Knurling Tool for Mini Lathe|
The Ebay one looks worth a chance

Axminster and £ are a give away that he lives in the UK.
I'd be inclined to go for the £31 Axminster one, if the capacity of 25mm is enough.
The main failing of the cheaper ones is a flex, due to the thin shank.

|Thread: Kant Twist clamps|
I got a few pairs from MSC over Christmas.
They are often in the sale flyer for half price
|Thread: Sending of heavy items|
We've been metric/imperial for years.
Cars are a prime example!!! Mix of inch and mm on tyres.
|Thread: A close shave or why safety glasses are a must|
First thing I do is put my safety specs on.
Nearly lost my eye 12 years ago at work! (long story, 5 operations to save the eye)
|Thread: Sending of heavy items|
I use Hermes for up to 15kg.
Much cheaper and they collect.
|Thread: Lathe Carriage Stop|
|Thread: Smoke detectors|
After a shed fire a few years ago, I have two smoke alarms.
Not sure what type they are, but they will go off if have carried away with cutting oil! I take that as the reminder to switch on the extractor!
|Thread: 15mm and 7/16" diameter HSS tool steel bar|
I buy drill blanks from MSC when I need HSS blanks
