|Thread: Colchester Chipmaster what to check for|
You could send the seller a message saying you are not well pleased, stating the faults you found contrary to the listing, and ask for a part refund.
The seller may agree to this to avoid neg or neutral feed back. Worth a try
To avoid negative feed back
|Thread: Fly Press Struggles|
Your touch mark from the photo seems to have quite a large area requiring more force,
On my blocksidge the type number is stamped on the top of the ram ie a number 3 stamp.
I stamp when hot just before hardening and tempering,
Nice work I can see why you would want to touch mark it ,
I also visit " iforgeiron.com " for help and advice with my forging.
|Thread: Dangerous Ultrasonic Cleaner Electrical Failure|
Under rated components, quarter Watt instead of half watt resistor insures a repair department.
The trick is getting It to fail just after 12months, then you can buy a new one or have it repaired ?

Merry Christmas to all from the Blackcountry.
|Thread: Repainting a chinese lathe|
They used sticky rice ? in the mortar mix in the Great Wall of China held up well.
|Thread: Why ACME threads on leadscrews?|
I don't think I would have admitted to that one.
|Thread: Identifying change wheels|
Hello wolrikm ,
I make that 18dp ? for the 100 tooth one no good for my Murad.
What is the overall dia in inches of the 100 tooth gear ?
|Thread: Grayson Lathe refurb|
I have welded cast iron with ENC1 2.5 99% nickel rods and my oxford oil cooled ac welder. to repair gears on my Murad
It might be worth getting a scrap gear and having a practice "another string to your bow" and if its a scrap gear it won't matter if you naff it up.
Don't pre heat, weld in short bursts of no more than 1/2" put gun down quickly after each weld and peen rapidly with a ball payne hammer to relieve stress. then go again until built up. It worked for me I practiced on a scrap gear first when confident moved on to a 48 tooth gear, two teeth broken welded it as per above left it to air cool on forge bed machined up next day. "try on scrap gear first"
|Thread: Rust removal methods safe for cutting tools / precision parts?|
|Thread: Murad Bormilathe|
Update on my progress on my Murad ,
I have manage to obtain a milling table of a Myford/drumond M type lathe the dove tail is at 60 Degrees,
as required but will need machining, to open it up by 0.144" to allow the gib to fit.
I will then need to make a nut at 0.5"x 10tpi LH to fit the table I have a piece of Ph bronze at the ready.
Sort out and machine change gears as required ,fabricate banjo's fit guard cover
Release stuck chuck make back plate for four jaw chuck.
Fabricate adaptor ring for cross slide to allow me to mount angle plate to gently machine milling table dove tail.."the ability to raise and lower the head stock means it can be bolted firmly to cross slide adaptor no vertical slide required"
Still to do :-
Make a cross slide nut for milling table machine and fit.
Make milling arbour.
fabricate belt guard.
and last but not least start a project ?
I have posted some pics but they rotate on up load even if I rotate the 90 degrees before up loading ?
|Thread: Using Chalk to Centre a 4-Jaw?|
chalk was the preferred method of the turners and borers in the boiler shop when I was a lad 50 odd years ago. can't remember seeing a DTI much outside the tool room .
quick and accurate enough for what was needed no need to chase the last thou on some jobs.
|Thread: Drill out a ht c/s allen screw|
This might sound silly what an old fitter told me, but it is worth a try as it worked for me .
put an elastic band across the hex cap bolt push in hex tool firmly and twist at the same time.
and no this is not a wind up.
Hope this Help Eric
|Thread: A milling slide support cage|
you might find this site use full, I use it a lot. "http://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/".
Sorry Andy1 but I don't like it .
To weld in situ can cause stress related movement which can effect more delicate parts .Weld spatter can stick on slides , bad earth can track and trash motor and switches
Cast iron can and will snap/crack quite easily under stress
I would make it off the job clean it up and fit to the job.
Sorry to be negative
|Thread: Not an industrial injury, but...|
Many Years ago back in history it was a capital offence to do damage to a land owners hedge ?
I once saw a hedge Kettering way that had been shaped to resemble a full sized steam train mind you that was 40 years ago it might have tender and coaches now.
