|Thread: Do they exist?|
As it says above, "do they exist?". They all seem to be imperial.
Agree with Bezzer and Ian Parkin, but just be patient, my little Chester bandsaw realy surprised me. Good luck.,
|Thread: HOW FAST - ANEMOMETER CALIBRATION ?|
|Thread: Alternatives to Loctite|
ARC Euro also sell some Loctite type products.
|Thread: M&W Micrometer Lock|
Have you tried the "Bowers Group", who either own or distribute M&W products for spare parts?
|Thread: WM18 strip down|
Have a look at "Ades Workshop" on youtube. He disassembles a WM16, which is likely to be similar, and shifts it, from his place of work (where it was delivered to), through the house, and down some stairs to his garden workshop shed.
|Thread: Seized aluminium threads Tilley Lamp Pump|
I thought so!
Isn't Coleman fuel more like petrol? I thought Coleman lamps and stoves worked differently to the Tilley and Primus principle.
I'm currently using Caldo "Premium". It's an improvement over the greenhouse heater stuff from B&Q, but still leaves a little to be desired as described earlier.
Does the lamp work OK now? I've had problems getting my Tilley's to work as they did some years ago.
Flames outside of the mantle, pulsating and not very bright light.
Cleaned and changed everything, including new vapourizers without much luck. The only thing that seems to have changed is the fuel. Esso Blue and Aladdin Pink worked fine years ago.
Any thoughts welcomed.
The very best of luck, but if all else fails, try "The Base Camp" in Peterborough for a replacement pump.
|Thread: Tee slot clamps similar to mole grips|
Wouldn't be without mine on the pillar drill. Some sort of sub-plate might be possible, but the thread is quite long. You may be able to shorten the thread to suit both applications, as it's way too long for my drill table.
|Thread: Hermes and couriers|
Honestly br, would you want to work for Hermes???
|Thread: Kity Slot Mortise Repair Help Needed|
Apologies for hijacking the thread, but on the subject of KITY machines, does anyone know if there any suppliers of KITY spares out there? A 1637 Planer Thicknesser in particular.
|Thread: Heat resistant paint suitable for a camp stove?|
Stove Enamel maybe?
As suggested, I'd leave the oxidized finish. My Monitor and Optimus stoves have been like it for as long as I can remember and still function OK.
|Thread: Engineering Industrial Training Board EITB|
Does the EITB exist today in some form? My guess is no. Practical training seen to have gone awry somewhat these days, unless it's a training scheme to get the unemployment figures down.
|Thread: How many remember this|
If I'm correct, it's part of a "James Walker" kit for making O-rings from strip material and Super Glue.
The O-ring cord would be put through the corresponding hole and a razor blade pushed through the slot to cut the cord square. The ends of the cord would then be joined using Super Glue.
I'm not sure how successful it was, but lining up the joint was hit and miss affair, although the vee grooves on the end of the tool were supposed to help with alignment. Plus, the joint line would be quite brittle.
Fine for emergency repairs I guess.
|Thread: I think its sold|
|Thread: Pro Machines UK|
Gerry, get some spare belts, they won't last long like that.
