Thread: Screw cutting
23/09/2021 17:19:31

By the time you have worked your way through Sparey,s chapter on screwcutting, I think you should have a fairly good idea of how to proceed.

Thread: A Couple of Questions about Pipe?
18/09/2021 18:44:52

Credit where credit is

I have no problem with my post, but then, I keep my postman well supplied with apple tarts !

Seems to help.

Just an idea !

Thread: Leadscrews and other features of Asian milling machines
16/09/2021 16:38:48

For hobby use, or indeed most day-to-day use, I doubt if yo have anything to worry about.

As Tony say,s, no need to go wild for normal use.

Sounds like a nice machine, I like the idea of the two spindles, handy for gear cutting.

Thread: A question about motor
16/09/2021 16:29:45

If it runs OK, what,s the problem ?

Let sleeping dogs lie.

Thread: Woodmaster Table Saw
16/09/2021 10:16:16

Only useful for ripsawing

15/09/2021 14:05:23

At 30 quid, I think you did OK. I would just fit a new switch and get it up and running.

Riving knife is not too important, I seldom use mine since it gets in the way while grooving or cutting joints.

You will do fine without it.

Nice find !

Thread: Cutting Steel Plate.
11/09/2021 09:11:35

Hacksaw ??

Thread: Why do designers do this!!

Thread: They see you coming
05/09/2021 13:45:28

You mean to say you have people like that over your way as well ???

Shocking !!cheeky

Thread: Disposal of swarf
04/09/2021 14:20:47

I recycle my scrap in my local centre, they take almost everything and all for 2 Euro !

No excuse to dump anything in The Sunny South East !

Thread: Cleaning my lathe
03/09/2021 10:04:17

I clean off every scrap of dirt I can find, then I polish everything to a high finish before wrapping it all up nice and tidy and wishing it sweet dreams. !

Needless to say, I seldom switch it on No-N0-No, that,s not good for it, it,s only there to be looked at, not used !

However, in the real World, I use it to get the job done, then clean off the heavy muck before getting on with something else. I regard it as a machine to be used, not to be looked at. I can buy ornaments cheaper.laugh

Thread: Student switchgear
02/09/2021 17:40:57

Sad to say, Bernard, that kind of response seems to be quite common these days.

Hope you get sorted out OK, could be a nice machine when you get it running.

Nothing in life is simple, is it ?cheeky

Thread: Build a Pallet Beehive
27/08/2021 09:09:54

And as Ady1 says "If it dont work, kill them" !

Thread: Chipmaster motor wiring
25/08/2021 08:39:15

I dont think it,s the starter you should be looking at. Perhaps you should check the position of the links in the motor terminal box ? One way for star, other way for delta.frown

Thread: Left hand thread on a Chester drill spindle
23/08/2021 16:21:58

That would seem to be very similar to the setup on a chopsaw, which has a left hand screw, or nut, clamping the blade in place. Nothing unusual there, I think. As Brian Woods said, a washer should sort it out.
