|Thread: Headstock Dividing Attachment from Hemingway|
I made mine from plans from a model engineers magazine (I think) as i already had some dividing plates.
So a small modification and all was good.
Great for making dials where you need to turn then engrave a line.
|Thread: Hemingway Quick Change Tool Holder|
Not built this one, im afraid.
But it looks simple to build.
The usual tedium of building the holders is the worst part in any QCTP.
The one I inherited was by Radford and I had to make many holders. Lots of tapping and milling...
|Thread: Flying experience|
Not me. I did it the other way then.
Work all week and then go to Panshanger for weekend flying.
Probably the nearest I came to an expensive drug Think it was £99 an hour back then
66 hours of training and passed 1st time Only failed one written exam as well
|Thread: Wall Storage Recommendation|
I made use of those takeaway plastic containers to put items in then made a simple plywood shelving unit to hold them all in and hung them on the wall. The first worked so well I built another * Rubs tummy *
|Thread: Latest Offer For Electronic Subscription and Online Archive|
Its a shame they didnt offer these discounts a while ago when I was a regular subscriber.
|Thread: Unrecognised Acronym on ebay listings 'UKPL'|
UK power line?
|Thread: What an earth are they called......|
try searching scaffolding interlock clip
Is this the type of clip? Used on scaffold towers
|Thread: Levelling a lathe..yes that old chestnut again|
Why do you use a dial indicator to test for parallel turning? I thought the test was turn both parts of the bar and use a micrometer to measure.
Usually twitter users wanting to create more interest to their page create a giveaway item and then ask to follow and retweet to enter.
If you just want to put adverts for the latest magazine etc then your followers will disappear as that is not very interesting and also cannot be used to start a conversation.
Most of all, Twitter can be fun if there is something of substance worth tweeting about. I have also managed to meet with a few people off Twitter and developed friendships with them ( not M.E.though)
|Thread: What is this item|
Its one of these
|Thread: Stevenson End Mill Fixture|
Use a height gauge to find height then half the diameter down. Put edge of cutter on that height. Also look at
|Thread: Making an alloy gear knob, help needed|
Yep, drill and tap then turn taper on threaded arbor then use ball turner and shape end over
|Thread: Kiln control.|

|Thread: slit saw jams|
I avoid using slitting saws if i can. To use one in this instance would be a no-no. I would rather create a quickly formed pile of swarf with a milling cutter than slowly passing a blade through a solid piece of steel like that.
|Thread: Bench Covering?|
|Thread: Carbide blades for Biax scraper|
I thought Biax was a German product so there should be no problem seeing as we are still in the EU
|Thread: Unknown precision drilling tools|
Were the plans published then? Interested to see them of course

Hi, I picked up these at a steam fair on Friday. They look as if the base and head have been cast and the rest is home made. They need a little more work but has anyone seen these in a book or magazine?
Sorry about the sideways pic
|Thread: Where (apart from ebay) to look for a pillar drill base?|
It might be worth your time looking for Walker Turner drill press on ebay. They look similar. I picked one up off ebay for 17 pounds the other day
