Thread: Unusual Go-No Go Tool?

Almost looks like some sort of sighting/viewing device on top. Look through the small hole and align something within the rectangular part?

Thread: Reilang oil cans, fit for purpose?
08/06/2021 07:48:03

I have a Reilang number 3 bought secondhand some years ago that has full threads, no flats. From memory I changed the flat washer, which I think was cork and breaking up, to an o ring. Fine oil can but can't say about leaking when laid down, it liveson the shelf.

I can find two of the holders you're welcome to. I seem to recall the problem was the dovetails were all machined to different sizes but you could maybe do something with them, PM your address and I'll pop them in the post.

I agree about Chinese stuff, as long as it's cheap enough it's often o.k after a bit of reworking!

It's definitely missing a dowel, I have one I bought at one of the shows maybe twenty years ago. Came with one holder and I bought two extra. When I got home all three holders must of been machined in different centuries! One fitted, one fitted almost sort of and one didn't fit at all! Tossed the lot in a box under the bench and for all I know they are still there!

I think what would be good for this is "dopping wax", lapidarists use it.

Always keep a sharp lookout.
