|Thread: METAL DUST & VFDs|

|Thread: Band saw arm weight|
with so many variables i doubt that the optimum pressure is obtainable with any machine to be found in our type of workshop. mine is not even adjustable and is never a problem. i just put the job in the saw walk away and do something else.
|Thread: MIG welding - beginners question.|
+1 for this site covers a lot of other useful stuff as well
|Thread: Wiring and connectors|
it all comes down to the skill of the person doing the job soldering requires some. any fool can squeeze a pair of pliers
|Thread: DRO----How accurate|
at the risk of upsetting a lot of people on here
we buy a budget machine put it in a shed then try measuring to .001 with something marked to.01that we have had for years. i think its too much to ask for. perhaps better to say can i make stuff does it work if yes no problem. however if no and .001 mm limits are really needed its time to spend some very large sums of money
the machine shop where i work, works to these limits - million pound machines - tempture controlled workshop - measuring equipment sent away annually to be checked.
moan over i off to the shed my cheepo Eastern mill and my 80 year old English lath is waiting
|Thread: Pressurised vs loft tank CH systems?|

|Thread: Does anyone recognise this model engine?|
my guess is it runs on air or vacuum it reminds me of the vacuum motors fitted to old cars
|Thread: Threads that are steel and epoxy|
drill and tap as is. is likely to end in a broken tap when the part you glued in moves or jamming the draw bar when it moves later. only safe way is to drill it oversize fit an insert or sleeve. but is it worth it for a piece of junk the cost you nothing
|Thread: Songs about Engineering|
can't remember the title but Jonny Cash building "his" Cadillac

|Thread: Setting up my workshop|

|Thread: Mill or drill for the same money|

|Thread: Ba 2 castellated locking nut|
