Hi Bill, Don, Thank You !

Cheers, Mike

Could someone please tell me what the diameter of a Myford ML7 countershaft is ?


Thread: Any geologists out there?
06/10/2019 17:44:54

I've seen rocks like this in a California river, small hard pebbles have worn the softer rock away by the agitation of the water passing over them over time.

Thread: Dore Westbury Mill
15/03/2019 14:04:05

While on the lathes site, scroll down the title page and click on to Dore Westbury under the milling machine section; there is a wealth of information about the mill there.

EDIT: Also, I noticed currently there is a Centec Mill with vertical head for sale on the site, which may be of interest to you ?

Thread: Machine tool suppliers
15/03/2019 10:20:07

Have a look on the site, a good source for used machines and accessories.

Thread: Rotary table + cross slide ....... why ?
03/02/2019 15:01:25

I have a Palmgren rotary table with the x & y cross slides. When I was young, all I had was a drill press, and paired with the x/y rotary table served me admirably for light milling and making custom spool hubs for the chopped bikes I worked on back in the early 1970's. Would have loved to have had a mill back then.

Nice photos. No luck in my neck of the woods.

Thread: Bending copper pipe
15/01/2019 21:08:11

An option would be to find a long coil spring with a 3/8" bore and slip it over the copper tube where you intend the bend to be. The spring will support the surrounding area to equalize the pressure around the bend and minimise the chance of a sharp kink. I have a set of commercially made ones are made for this purpose, but are not immediately available to post photos.

Thread: Angle checker
28/12/2018 21:37:53

If it were me, I would probably have put it where I keep my lathe centre gage tool for threading; because they look alike.

Thread: Todays Mystery Objects?

possibly a chute connection for air dropping supplies for ground troops.

Thread: Solution found to the World's biggest problem . . .
09/11/2018 08:36:18

The DVLA already have. This year our 15 year old car cost us one hundred and ninety pounds road tax, yet the newer one we just bought now costs us thirty pounds.

………………... they'll just tax us heavily when it's past it's short design life & it comes time to throw it away.

Thread: what Christmas present
05/11/2018 21:40:26

A set of gear cutters would be nice.

Thread: Where to learn Gear Hobbing?
03/11/2018 08:57:17

Currently there is an old Koepfer gear hobber on the G and M tools site.

Thread: Pickle for Cartridge Brass
01/10/2018 21:44:29

Not sure how it would work on copper, but Apple Cider Vinegar will dissolve the worst corrosion imaginable on brass and leave it looking like new.

Thread: Today's mystery object
19/09/2018 14:18:24

Necessity being the mother of invention, it looks like an attempt at a home made builders level.

Thread: Tiny hoist designs?
31/08/2018 18:37:16

Consider a hand crank winch, the type used on small boat trailers to winch boats up on to them out of the water at a loading ramp.

Thread: Belt Driven Hacksaws -
22/08/2018 21:15:36

I have the larger model 90 Kennedy saw which had belt slippage when I acquired it. Oil was part of the problem, but slippage all but disappeared when I roughed up the small motor pully with coarse sandpaper.

Thread: A good quality oil can..?
22/08/2018 18:34:28

Here's a thought..... Why not make your own ?

I often see metal hip flasks for a couple of pounds in charity shops. Machining a simple drip nozzle replacement cap with an O-ring would make for a handy size oil can.
