Very nice John.

If you're not too far away, you are welcome to come & play with my gasless MIG before you make a decision. I'm based inLancashire.
|Thread: Searching for a good quality, metric-only, 300mm steel ruler|
Best one yet
|Thread: Spindle Play in Sieg SC4 Lathe|
Could I make tentative suggestion that the problem might be caused by backlash on the cross slide.
|Thread: How can I cut a 0.75mm radius on a piece of soft rubber sheeting?|
I was with you Robert
|Thread: Front door locks|
Ah, sorry, I was just attempting to show the style of lock rather than the actual one that was on my stepmother's house.
This might work for you Ian. My mother in law had them fitted to front and rear doors. It allows the door to be locked on the inside but still opened with a key from a key safe.
Thank you John, I'm a little, but only a little, nearer understanding.
Many thanks for the replies
I can imagine that the gas that is being used to form the plasma ( if that's what it is ) in a fluorescent tube is the gas that it is filled with but what about the plasma in a plasma cutter? Is that the surrounding air?

|Thread: How to keep Paint Fresh?|
Hello Martin, I've had some success by storing the paint tins upside down. Just make sure the lids are on tightly!
|Thread: Is it possible to by "100% non-stick" spatulas for spreading glue? (ideally made from teflon/FEP)|
Not just me then
|Thread: Electro etching|
Sealing the mask around a curved surface sounds interesting
At the risk of being tedious, here is another video that I found helpful with my clocks.
Would this help?
|Thread: Need to cut long thin strips of steel (& plastic) - e.g. with an angle grinder?|
I hesitate to enter the fray but a guillotine would do it.
|Thread: New Toy|
Thanks Thor. The pattern was from part of a photo'
Thanks John no it's a cnc engraver.
I wanted a way of engraving a chapter ring for my clock and after having some success, I tried an engrave on the back plate of my Murday clock.
