Thread: Piston size?
31/12/2019 16:16:48

Jason,

Thanks, that explains it then. I couldn't figure out why it would be made from 2 halves though while the original imperial drawings call for a single piece, 2 ringed piston.

We will be running in on air, at least to start. We have no way of creating steam as of yet and have no plans to make a boiler.

Gents,

We are about to start machining the piston for our Stuart no. 1. I have a few questions regarding this part.

1. How much clearance should we allow the piston to have relative to the cylinder?

2. I have seen a few youtube videos where silicone piston rings are used instead of the Stuart supplied rings. Which should we use?

3. The original drawings (imperial) show a 2 ringed piston and my build book (metric, also from Stuart) show a strange looking part that doesn't even seem to have a piston ring groove in it.

Any help is greatly appreciated, many thanks,

Mark

@Alan Wood, can you explain to me (a newbie to ME) why the tailstock must be slid and not wound when pushing the workpiece into contact with the arbor?

Thanks,

Mark

Yes Michael, thats right. 6 gang indeed means 6 gears. From what I can see the gears are changed using 2 selectors on the body of the drill. Thanks for the links,

Gents,

I have wanted a quality European drill for a while and have been searching for Meddings etc. but havent been successful.
i recently ran into this one which seems to be military surplus. Have anyone heard of it? It is a Duss D23 and the press part is a Hahn and Kolb.
My internet searches haven’t revealed much info.

Many thanks,

Mark

This thread is nearly 3 years old. I doubt Marc is still following this.

Thread: Why mostly manual cars in UK
08/12/2019 04:20:44
Posted by Dave Smith 14 on 07/12/2019 19:41:01:

I have driven a lot of automatics, but why do I still prefer a manual? As with everything its personal preference, I LIKE changing gear and it also allows me to have the car in the part of the power band I want it in not what the car thinks its wants to be in.

a lot of modern cars these days Allow you to choose between automatic and manual. I have a Audi with an S-Tronic box which I can leave in “D” or change to “M” which allows me to use the paddles to change gears. Best of both worlds I suppose.

Ah ... that nicely complements the infamous Scunthorpe problem MichaelG.

A friend came from there and, when he was away, called it Shorpe, since there wasn't one in Scunthorpe when he wasn't there!

Funniest thing I’ve read in weeks!

Thread: DRO on a Mill
29/11/2019 01:49:21

I have an Emco FB-2 (Round column mill) which I fit a 3 axis DRO which I bought from Allendale. Works a charm and I use the z-axis a lot. I am not sure I understand why this is an issue? If you google “FB-2 dro” there are several iterations of the z-axis.

Funny I have never even heard if him and I watch all the usual suspects (Abom, Ox Tools, Keith Fenner, no23mk2, Joe Pi and Mr. Crispin). Thanks for the tip.

Thread: Metric micrometer what t buy?
28/11/2019 22:44:58

I watched a youtube video a while ago in which a Chinese digital caliper was shown to be changing the indicated value as the battery depleted. This was an eye opener for me. Since then I have decided to buy only Mitutoyo’s (or similar) and would prefer a decent second hand quality mic to a new Chinese made one.

That being said I do buy my milling cutters from Banggood which I have found to be excellent, generally. That is more an aside just to prove I’m not a complete tool snob
