|Thread: stamford show vandals|
Mike has said it perfectly.
|Thread: Silvering brass|
How on earth does that work then V8Eng, sounds like snake oil (only sounds like, your results sound pretty convincing)
|Thread: A dynamo question: rotation direction?|
Agreed, I converted my Morris 1000 to negative earth and had to flash the dynamo to achieve it. It wasn't onerous.
|Thread: Pressure gauge help needed please.|
From what I can see of your craftsmanship the world is your oyster.
|Thread: The Chocolate Fireguard as designed by Mercedes Benz|
The jets in my carbs used to have waxstat units that mucked up the mixture when hot. I've fitted normal ones now. Take that technology!
Noted, I'm motoring through BA fasteners at a rate of knots on my Brit build.
|Thread: Cross slide backlash|
If you turn the handle side to side to expose the backlash you can see the whole thread moving back and forth. That's what indicated to me that was where the problem lay. I suspected it wasn't the nut in my case as the lathe hadn't been used much
This modification is available for the ML7 (I'm aware you are referring to the super 7), I wonder if something similar could be done. I used the bearings listed for my ML7 and it improved things drastically.
|Thread: Making Holes in Copper Sheet|
Q max would be my vote too, even home made.
|Thread: Aspiring Myford User|
It's a bit north for you (I'm North Dorset) but I travel to Westbury to the WWSME, a fantastically helpful society who have assisted me no end, despite all my daft question. You would be made most welcome if you ever want to visit.
|Thread: Sort of like a guitar...|
|Thread: Which triple expansion engine|
My 10H was quite slow to arrive from Stuart; it was a birthday present ordered a few months before my birthday, and my birthday came and went, and more weeks besides. When it did turn up I had a problem with one of the castings, which to their credit they replaced without quibble. However there was the same delay of just over a month for the new one to arrive. The general quality of the 10H kit was very good indeed.
Stuart's customer service was good, but you have to wait for them...
My experiences with Reeves I have spoken about before. My personal experiences with their customer services encourages me to use other vendors unless there isn't another option.
|Thread: French Mystery Tool|
I wonder if the bolt previously was a larger one with a spring under it?
Do they fit together the other way?
|Thread: odd thread|
Well done Philip
|Thread: myford leadscrew|
I find the handwheel on my lathe annoying (ML7) as the graduations don't go up cleanly in tens for each revolution. I can't explain it very well, but I mean the end of the graduations end in a five when it reaches zero.
I know what I mean if no-one else does...
Could it be a 1-1/8 x 12 tpi whitworth form thread? That would be Myford. My apologies if wrong.
|Thread: Lathe Carriage Stop|
Our MES has a Myford with a lovely little device that clicks off the feed once its reached the desired travel. Fantastic bit of design.
You've got a lovely finish on those components, nice work.
|Thread: Todays DUMBO award|
If it makes you feel any better I've done the same thing. I don't remember having set the lathe to reverse but I know it took me ages to work it out...
|Thread: Soft Feel Finish on Radio|
The disabled hand controls in my car did this when parked up for a while. I went to use it again and the rubber hand grip for the throttle/brake had turned to blu-tac.
