|Thread: The repair shop|
The Magician and his wife, who's daughter brought in the music box were Harry and Rose Rengal. Harry was known as Ringo the Magician, for his act where seemingly solid rings would interlock into a chain.
|Thread: Dore Westbury milling machine|
I notice there are a couple of Dore Westbury mills currently offered on the " gandmtools " site.
|Thread: Mystery Object ... This one has me beat|
It appears to be a datum point. I've seen these before embeded in cement on peaks of "named" mountains in California.
|Thread: recommendations for used lathes?|
I notice currently there is an old Atlas 612 metal lathe on offer at a clearance price of less than £150.oo on the gandmtools.co.uk site. Worth a look.
|Thread: Taking a pair of wire cutters to a standard baseball cap|
Yes, a most entertaining topic.
Basically this type of cap is used for Cross the Course and High Power competitions, and is most beneficial when shooting prone on the line to minimize getting hit in the face from the ejected empties when an adjacent competitor is a semi automatic rifle. Nothing is worse than having a hot shell casing take residence behind your ear, ha ha.
|Thread: Spectacles and solder.|
Your optician doesn't seem to be worth his salt if he can't order you a replacement frame from a catalogue to install your lens in.

|Thread: Coping with deafness|
Ask your neighbour if she has ever had her ears flushed out ?
When I was in my middle 40's my hearing became an issue. I went to a consultant and after he had a look said with a smile, " I can give you new ears." He returned to the room with a huge syringe ( minus the needle) and a small bucket of warm water with a peroxide type solution and proceeded to jet out my ears. After a couple of minutes chunks of ancient hardened wax came flowing out. When he was finished I was amazed at the difference in what I could once again hear. When I got home I noticed that I had to turn down the volume on the television and I could once again hear the kettle boiling. I've had my ears flushed several times in the past 20 or so years now, and can tell you it would be worth having your neighbour consider it.

|Thread: Yet Another Mystery Object|
It looks like the internal sliding part of a device for measuring a volume of powder, such as that for reloading cartridges; although larger.
|Thread: Pesky Government Announcement!|
Here in the UK you pay a mandatory extorsion called a television licence to watch basically rubbish and never ending reruns, So why would anyone expect it to be any different for radio.

I noticed currently there are a couple of Myford super 7 lathes on offer at the quillstar.co.uk site, if this helps ?

|Thread: ML7 Countershaft|
Hi Bill, Don, Thank You !
Could someone please tell me what the diameter of a Myford ML7 countershaft is ?
|Thread: Any geologists out there?|
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|
While on the lathes .co.uk 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 gandmtools.co.uk site, which may be of interest to you ?
