|Thread: Muncaster's Simple Entablature Engine|
Thanks Jason, much appreciated.
Hi Jason, you mention using small metric sizes with fine threads, could you list the ones I would need along with taps and dies as mine start at M3 or would I be able to use BA sizes as I have 2 to 8 ba in stock.
Thanks Jason, yes it's a shame about College Engineering, there were some useful castings that are now always out of stock.
Where's the flywheel from Jason?
|Thread: V-Twin 100cc Design & Build|
What type and size plane are you building Craig?
|Thread: chinese hit and miss engine|
Totally disagree with you, there are some items that are not up to standard but in the main all I have bought from there over the past 6 years have been fine and even great. There have been instances where goods have not arrived, not all there or broke in a short time but every time I contact them I have had a good proactive response and replacement even with extras to say sorry.
Must be your attitude when you contact them not done it yet , oh and I always have photos/videos at the ready.

|Thread: Which Stuart models can be done on a 7x14 lathe with no mill?|
There's a chap, Andrew Whale, has been doing a series of youtube videos creating small Stuart engines Learning Turning, he's using a mini lathe and then eventually a mini mill but his first Stuart engine, after an oscillator was an S50. Worth while following his journey.
|Thread: What are these used for please?|
Haha Michael beat me to it
Thanks everyone, 1 down, i possible, 1 to go.
Sorry, never thought
Wouldn't they have have needed to have threads in them for that purpose though?
That did cross my mind and might be right for the 2 on the left but haven't seen pipework in as large sizes as that though
Hi, these were amongst some items bought and I'm not sure of their purpose. Gentleman was an engineer and clock maker.
Left hans one has BA sizes on it.
Made in USA, Industro
I don't know if this is complete, about 3" is size, one part is hinged but certainly not a knurling tool for the lathe, but could be wrong
|Thread: Tungsten Putty?|
Depleted uranium is only slightly radioactive, no more than encountered day to day but it has high density hence it's use in bullets and shells.
|Thread: Denham Junior Mk2 toolpost|
I'm looking for advice on choosing a Dickson type quick change tool post for my lathe. Problem is what size do I get as best fit and what info do I need to put here for you to advise me.
The Denham Junior Mk2 has a centre height of 5" from the flat, 4.5" from the top of the V. the holding bolt is .5" and is approx 45 mm from the centre of the bolt to the edge of the top slide and surface of topslide to centre of spindle is 14.87 mm.
My thoughts are a tool post that will overhang the edge of the topslide allowing me to drop the cutter holder below the level of the topslide although I expect an avalanche of 'don't/can't' do that!
Any ideas fellow machinists?

|Thread: Shipping heavy models|
Simplex is on its way to Denmark, should arrive on Wednesday.
|Thread: Aluminium cylinder blocks|
Would there be any wear considering the input of steam oil?
|Thread: Shipping heavy models|
Hmm I think the cost of taking her indoors outdoors and staying overnight make just take a very large chunk of the Simplex money!!!
Nice idea though.
Sorry, had an away day with SWMBO 'shopping' whoopee!
Destination is Maidstone, Kent. He's planning to collect from there.
The chassis is a 5" gauge 060 approx sizes 34" x 10" x 6" plus a box 24" x 14" x 10". Weight I would guesstimate at around 30 kgs for the chassis plus another 10 ish kgs for the box.
Hi, a chap from Denmark has bought my Simplex chassis and box of and parts, his sister lives in Maidstone. Is there a way (courier etc.) that would transport it from Herefordshire safely.
Any suggestions (sensible) would be gratefully received.
