|Thread: Myford ML4 Threads|
My experience, such as it is, of British made hobby machines of that era suggests small whitworth thread sizes, especially if tapped into cast-iron.
|Thread: Drill bit accuracy|
My elderly "Dormer Twist Drill and Reamer Information Handbook" lists diametral tolerances according to BSS.
All tolerances are +.0000. Minus tolerances vary from - .014 mm for drills up to 3 mm. dia. to -.054 mm for drills between 80 to 120 mm. dia.
A 10mm drill for example would be +0, -.027.
Off-centre grinding would change this of course.
All reamers are plus tolerances

|Thread: Hi from North Cumbria|
Hello, I've just joined the forum after a period of lurking. My model-making activities go back, on and off a good few years but with lapses, the most recent being due to a house move, but the workshop is now functioning again, (at last!)
I started off with a Grayson 3 1/2" lathe, now replaced with a Boxford ME10 and a Raglan mill was added. The Raglan has just been supplemented with a small Chinese mill. Main projects over the years have been a 1 1/2" Allchin, a 5" g. Simplex and a Quorn, also a few tools, GHT and others. Present main task is a 5" Princess of Wales.
I've been greatly impressed by the level of knowledge and general helpfulness shown on this forum, I hope to be taking advantage of this in future as, hopefully, the PoW progresses.
|Thread: Simplex Superheater Details|
My drawing shows a 2 element radiant superheater, 7/16 inch dia. stainless tubes extending to the back of the firebox.
