Sounds like the Clarkson type. If they are ,did you get a collet holder with the machine.
P.S Try concentrate how to post pictures. Makes answering problems , soo much easier.
I just watch the daily Covid news from Dr John Campbell on youtube. At least everything he says is backed up by data sheets.

No, there are tapered & none tapered. This has been covered before somewhere on here.

|Thread: Hello from Scotland|
|Thread: Laptop with a SD card slot|
My Partner has just bought a smaller Lenovo laptop. No dvd drive, SD slot or USB. What it does have is 2 USB C ports to charge & do all other jobs. With a USB to USB C adaptor. £2.00 off ebay. All items can be plugged in to those ports. Tried it the other day & DVD work fine , as do memory sticks & my 5 slot memory card reader.
I think it is the way new laptops are going.
|Thread: How to make a spring|
You need to talk to one of the leaf spring manufacturers. I know they can temper a spring to many different tolerances using the same spring, so there must be a bit of tech in it. IE initial temp & then plunge time & medium used.
Years ago i worked with a performance shop, getting the spring rates for my Calibra turbo which we were lowering. The same springs were re treated several times before we got them right.

|Thread: LED Tubes in the workshop|
I just supplied a friend with some new 5 foot fully enclosed fittings to try in his workshop. These are from the Electrical wholesalers & are not cheap. I think they were £55 each, but IP65 fully enclosed. He had the LED tubes already fitted. These are the complete fitting that do not have a tube. It is a 5 foot long LED strip. The results are the strip types are far brighter than the tube type. Without the diffuser fitted you cannot look at the light as it is quite blinding.
I changed mine in my workshop that i had not long installed. These were the 5 foot fluorescent ones. I can confirm the difference from a new fluorescent to an LED strip type is amazing.
From a retired Electrical contractor. Results for comparison.
Original 5 foot fittings with tri phosphor lamps, After 1/2 hour warm up time. With less than 40 hrs of use. At 1 metre from concrete painted floor. 440 Lux.
LED 5 foot strip type new fittings taken at 1 meter from concrete painted surface. 617 Lux.
Anyone wishing to change theirs, consider the strip type over the tubes. I say this a s some of the tube types are the old tech LED. The round bulb looking type. The strip ones are the little yellow square ones. Sorry forgot the names for them. Some say corn types etc. Hope this helps anyone deciding.
|Thread: Mystery Mains Connector|
Looks a bit like my shaver lead. + my hair clippers.
|Thread: Myford Super 7 spanner sizes|
There are BA sizes on the S7 e.g the oilers are all 2BA. There are also i think whitworth too. I have a stack of old spanners & just go for what fits. Never bothered to look at what size they were. My little Bahco adjustable fits everything.

|Thread: Hi From Kent|
Welcome Rob. Sounds like you have a plan.
|Thread: Tailstock Die Holder (metric)|
I made this one a while back , that holds all my different dies. Cheap as chips & not a lot of time to do.
|Thread: Bitdefender keeps blocking a site on here|
Yes i know i can do that. The problem was i had no idea what the site was until being informed by others.
Oh eck , i am sorry. Didn't want to get anyone into bother. Looking through it is when i look at a thread i started & Neil has replied to it. Sorry Neil.
When using the forum i keep getting a notice up from my Bitdefender saying.
msedge.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to www.stubmandrel.co.uk. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.
Does anyone know what this site is.
|Thread: The Moon|
Michael. I have just had a look at the link. I will try again. I tried registax with 10 pictures yesterday. But the program kept crashing. In the end i gave up. I even switched the computer off to clear any cache, but to no avail. I am going to have another go though. The p.c i have is a pretty powerful octocore with 16gig of ram , so i doubt the problem is with the p.c , but with the user.
As i have said above i am struggling to get my head around the stacker programs. One problem i did have was my video's are in MPG format & the programs want to see AVI. So i converted the MPG to AVI but it still would not accept it.
I also have lots of pictures that were done on a sort of burst mode , so around 10 pictures at a time.
I think i need to do some instruction reading if i can find any.
spent most of yesterday trying to use stacking programs with no success at all. Lack of knowledge i guess. Must try harder. Registax keeps crashing , so i tried a version of AutoStakkert. But still no luck. I need to get my around the program. I watched a few youtubers showing how to do it , but got lost half way through.
