Thread: Pet peeves!
16/08/2019 12:59:18

Mick, I bought mine second hand and yes it still works but I am bery gentle with it and having to screw it closed to get it in the box makes me cringe every time. I think I’ll take Jan B’s advice and construct a new case.

I’m sure we all have one and mine regards to my favourite Mitutoyo micrometer. It only fits in the box when the anvils are nearly touching. And it’s one of those old Mitutoyo’s with the mechanical numerical wheels so every time I have to store it I worry about the wear and tear to that rather intricate bit of kit.

Why didn’t they design the box so that the thing would fit with the thimble “extended”?

They did:

But, so far as I know, M&W didn't!

I need a box like that! Haha exactly what I was referring to,

Thread: Digital calipers made in same factory?
15/08/2019 21:06:22

Regardless of the markings, the thing that would scare me most about buying fake calipers is that as the battery depletes they can start giving erroneous readings. I think AvE did a video about this a couple of years ago. Either AvE or Pierres Garage I can’t remember,

Good tips on honing, thanks. I bought a simple honing jig on Ebay (made by Sealey I think) to hone the cylinder on oir Stuart no. 1. As already said, very inexpensive.

Joe Pie is indeed an excellent channel to watch. I also enjoy anything by Tom Lipton (Oxtools) and a young English man called Mr. Crispin.

Have you thought of using a rust remover like what WD-40 currently offer? Or would that eat the parent metal too? I have used it on old rusty tap wrenches etc and it works well. I have never used it on anything with a precision finish though.

Thread: good service Arc eurotrade
02/08/2019 00:46:38

I have always been very pleased with Arc and have spent several hundred euro’s there. Never had a problem. I sometimes wish they would have more brand name tools however, I’m a bit of a tool snob and like Mitutoyo, Starrett etc. it would be nice if they’d stock some known brands along side their import offerings, which to be honest have been excellent quality by the way.

Fine looking lathe you have there! Enough S7 expertise here to help you (and me) on your way. If you need a fixed steady let me know.

Absolutely incredible. The amount of time involved is mind boggling.

KWIL,

Just getting back to what you said, it's actually in the manual that I have. Makes it all the more embarrassing that I missed it, duh!

Thanks Del, funny thing is, the more I tidy up the less Dad can actually find stuff! Good luck on the 10v, taking any pics?

Ah I now know which pin you mean. I wasn’t aware that pin was only held in by a set screw. I just had a look at a pdf I have here on my tablet and see it how that could cause this issue.

thanks again, excellent.

Good point, KWIL, many thanks I will certainly do that next time I am at the lathe. I didn’t even know there was a pin down there.

Thanks again for the replies, old mart, Martin and Nigel. I will investigate further as this is something I want to have sorted. Thanks again!

Thread: Myford Change Gear trouble

Yes, that is the logical step. I took a short cut and put a washer on the whole stack which moved the whole stack outwards but a spaced between the 2 wheels is the way to go. I'll order the parts from Myford.

Thanks gents!

I told my Dad we'd have the answer inside 15 minutes, you gents are fantastic, many thanks from Dad and myself

Thread: A few newbie questions, sorry

Thanks for the replies, my mind is at ease at least on the oiler cups! Roderick, I will try and get the straight in my head but it'll take time to sink in. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I see now that plunging a mill straight down would come in handy. My end mills can't do that.

Thread: Myford Change Gear trouble
16/07/2019 16:39:13

Gents,

We are trying to cut an M10 thread on our S7 lathe. We have a metric conversion set and have installed the slotted quadrant as per Myford booklet. The quadrant has been fitted with the required change wheels.

The problem we are having is with the Tumbler Stud. As per the booklet, it must have 30 teeth. The tumble stack is quite thick as the tumbler gear itself has a flange of sorts. This makes the outer wheel on the tumbler stack stick out too far as it comes into contact with the outer wheel beneath it. It is only supposed to drive the inner of the 2 wheels beneath it. I took some photos to illustrate the problem. It may look ok in the photo but the outer wheel on the tumbler stud is actually touching the outer wheel of the stack below it as it's only supposed to drive the inner wheel of the stack beneath it.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Mark
