Thread: Hello from East Northamptonshire
21/10/2021 22:26:46

Hi Michael & welcome to the Forum. Many members have the Myford lathe of different models etc. The super 7 has a gap bed so technically you could swing up to 10" if using a backplate or fixture. But as said above it is only a small lathe. Hope to see some projects from you in the near future.

I have not ventured into steam as yet, but never say never i guess. Some members have made some stunning machinery. So you will have no shortage of help at hand.

Thread: Bench grinder

Many bench grinders do not have a centrifugal switch. They are just capacitor start & run. The capacitor being in circuit permanantly. Hopefully a cheap fix for you.

I think the "keyhole" was just the escution for another now broken vial so you could use it as a "level" on vertical or slightly inclined surfaces just like the bubble on the long edge is used for horizontal work.

I always used Nitromors paint stripper. Never failed , apart from with stove enamel.

The keyhole type slot looks an important part of it, being solid brass.

How do you get a "passport" if you do not possess a smart phone.?????????????????

You could get the app for P.C or Tablet. Remember they only last a month. So if going away ,then you need to get one near your travel date.

I would have thought good old clear plastic tube would work. The type you would buy from local auto spares shop or hardware store.

Thread: NHS Covid Passport Scam

We have just back from 2 weeks in the Canaries. Going out was show your vaccination pass from NHS. & fill in a passenger locator form on a Spain website. Qr code is then received to show on arrival at destination. 2 Covid tests are purchased before travel. 1 to do 2 days before return to UK. With a results QR code to show.

Then a passenger locator form has to be filled in on the UK website , showing the QR code from test.

Then 2 days after return , another covid test which has to be sent to a lab for checking.

I must say the whole thing was very stressful to do. Had i been much younger maybe i would have taken it in my stride.

To top it all , I broke the sump on a Fiat 500 rental , which cost me 500 euro's. Phew.

Glutton for punishment so we have booked for next year with the Family.

Well over here in the Canary Islands it is a issue. The volcano in Las Palmas is spuing huge amounts out at the moment. Not good I guess. Not to mention that the earth is getting hollowed by the day.Steve.
