Thread: Adcock Shipley Bridgeport motor
16/01/2022 21:21:22

If your motor runs o/K at the moment it seems that this is a single phase motor . Your incomeing cable is a metal covered flexible cable and the outer is used for a earth connection but the green wire has also been used for this so it appears that this is wired for single phase use .How many wires are in this incomeing cable?

Is this a single phase machine with 3 leads Live Neutral & Earth , Or is this a three phase machine with 3 Live and a earth lead 4 Cables if a neutral is there for a light then ypu may have 5 Leads .

Swapping Your Brown and Blue led roun has only reversed the incomeing polarity on motor. You earthe is blocking the view of motor leads . To reverse the motor you need toreverse the start windings This looks like the Blue and Yellow leads that need to be changed round . The earth lead is restricking view;


Thread: Do you "still" enjoy driving?
30/12/2021 15:20:46

I spent 45 yrs years driving sometimes 1000 plus miles a week as a service engineer repairing Commercial Laundry & Dry Cleaners . Now prefer to drive only to where I want to go. Many pass me and I then finish up behind them at the next set of traffic lights. I am left puzzled at the rush ???

Thread: Wire

Looks like Bowden Cable that use to be used for a Brake and Clutch cable in a Sheath on Motor Bikes or anything that requires a control cable , Remember using this to replace brocken cable because it was easier to rethread this in the outer case than to replace the complete cable and sheath complete.

Thread: Metrotropolitan Vicker Single phase motor

2 slip rings is a puzzle. 3 Slip rings together with 6 Brushes for a large 50hp 3phase star delta motor with a Allen West oil filled starter control that you move the starting handle from start to run yes . 2Slip rings have found this once where there there was a 2 Phase supply on a RAF base.

More Details will hopefully provide a answer


Thread: Over 70 Driving Licence Renewal
30/11/2021 18:40:25

I just sent all my paperwork together with a copy of my eye sight test haveing had reaccuring cataracts in both eyes since since my previous renewall 3 years ago . No problem everthing completed new licence arrived within 10 days.


Thread: Compressor
24/11/2021 14:16:41

Yes most small compressors are noisy and are direct drive , Also a compressor over 50ltr air storage capacity may well require a yearly insurance test certifecate like a Steam Boiler because they are classed as pressure vessels.

Good Luck in your search


Thread: Wonky threads using die
22/11/2021 18:03:02

Die holders seem to have mostly metric sizes BA and small Whit & Bsf that i Have are 15/16 which from memory will only go to 1/4 Whit 5/16 Whit and similar go to a 1. 5/16 Die holder which i think stops at 1/2 whit. I also have some BA Dies that go from 10BA to 4BA that are 9/16 Dia . To get a perfect fit you may have to make small ring to fit your Die to then hold your Die , A poor fit may break your die? I maybe slightly wrong about these sizes as i am reliying on my memory

Good luck and time you will win.

Thread: Motor Gland
21/11/2021 19:07:49

At a guess 3/4 Conduit now Metric which will not match , If a American Motor no match . Continental ,I have found no match,

Good Luck Bee.m

If you have a piece of steel turn this down to the size of your bar about 2" Long then bore a hole that will be a good fit on your 3/16 bar . When you have done this bore a hole in the end the same size as your Die this will then give you a Guide to to keep the whole unit straight .or if you have a larger size die holder thie can be done in the revirse with the held in your die holder and the die in the die holder after you have extented the 3 screws

Hope this helps and that it can be understanded I have made this and used many times

Good luck Bee M
