Thread: Warco Rotary Table - What Grease?
01/03/2019 15:20:15

Excuse me hijacking this thread but I have a similar question. I've just acquired an unidentified second hand 8" rotary table and it has an oil sight glass at the side and a filler plug. Trawling the internet brings up a discussion about this on an American web site but no help on what type of oil.

Has anyone come across this and can they say what sort of oil to use? I would hazard a guess that maybe the same sort of hydraulic oil I use in my Myford bearings...

Talking of shimming, I came across this video on Youtube where an epoxy product supplied by a German company is used as an alternative. This is new to me (not that that means much!) has anyone else used this technique?

Thread: Issue Reading New Digital Viewer

Can someone say what viewer is currently operating for the archived magazines? I am seeing Adobe Flashplayer for either MS Explorer running on Windows 10 or Firefox running on Windows 7.

I know two people who use this foundry for small batches (less than 10) of motorcycle engine casings. They specialise in non-ferrous metals.

Thread: What happened to digital mag viewer?

I think you will find the problem is with the latest version of Adobe Flash Player 32. The print function was working fine for me until my latest version was auto installed on 8th February.

It looks like nothing is happening once you click OK on the print dialog box but if you pause printing in the print queue and try again you will see the print job spool waiting for the printer to be un-paused. The moment you un-pause the printer the job deletes itself from the queue.

A work around is to to select Microsoft XPS Document Writer as the printer when the print dialog box comes up and print the page to a .xps file. This can then be opened and sent to the printer. I looking at how to uninstall version 32 of Adobe Flash Player and go back to version 31 with the auto update switched off.

I am running Firefox on Windows 7

Thread: Storing small lengths of steel stock

My variation on the drain pipe method, note use of drain pipe fixings to attach to workbench. You can also see I colour code my metals using cheap paint pens off eBay (£5.49 for 12 colours).

Thread: Hello from Northampton

Thanks for the welcome gents.

Simon Cook, you have answered the question that was in my mind, namely are the NSME just about model trains or a broader church. I will make a point of dropping by one Tuesday and will contact the club sec. in the meantime.

Treated myself to a year's subscription to MEW.

I've had my Myford ML7 a few years now and have not used it nearly enough, I've also dabbled in electro plating . Now that I've retired I'm intending to get a lot busier with both and am considering buying a new milling machine. My main interest is restoring and running Italian motorcycles as well as moped racing.

Anyone on this forum associated with the Northampton Society of Model Engineers?
