|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread (2017)|
Finished off a log and brush moving trolley (for tree surgery) by painting it yesterday and testing it out today.
Rubber handles on order from China
I need to renew my subs and noticed there was no free gift or anything available?
Is this a new policy or am I trying to renew at a lean time ?
|Thread: Potts Drill Grinding Jig|
It was started around November 1951 ! in Model Engineer by Duplex.
I finally made a copy of the drill grinding jig from Model Engineer from the 50`S ? Not sure if this was the Potts or not? It has a fair bit of engineering in such a small item
Odd thing is, I can actually hand sharpen fairly well. But the fun is in the building I guess
Anyway I just need to make it look fancy (or not) and it does seem to work ok.
Oh, the guard is now back in place Just needed a little trim
|Thread: Myford Super7 low speed range problem|
There is a two toothed driving washer (not sure of correct name) that may be the issue. I had this fail on mine but cant remember full symptoms. It did drive but relied on friction to power it. It can be found on the clutch assy underneath the nut on the left hand side.
|Thread: Silver booty|
Guessing 780 mm
|Thread: WSP books|
I purchased Spindles on a whim from Amazon, as it was really cheap (a few pen notes inside), and I confirm it is a good read

|Thread: Model Engine Maker|
looks down to me
|Thread: Screw Thread diameter Help|
Wouldn`t you add 0.0246" x 2 onto any internal diameter?
|Thread: Tool and Cutter Grinders.|
The Acute grinder sharpens end mills without a problem. I use a Harold Hall rest I made for shaping lathe tools.
I made mine from stock metal so didnt cost too much either.
Both use the same standard grinder I can change between the two in minutes.
|Thread: Digital Calipers - Can you rank these from the measurements?|
I only use a caliper for a quick measurement. If I need a good fit the micrometer comes out.
As far as what is a best buy, its what the pocket can afford.
|Thread: Simple endmill sharpening device (end cutting edges only)|
|Thread: List of trader's attending MEX2016|
Question. Are there more than 14 trades attending the show?
|Thread: Download Motor Boys Model Engine Plan Book|
Well if the plans are ever made available, I would like to see them
|Thread: Hemingway Compact Powered Hacksaw|
I made one of the Myfordboy saws from plans. Cuts very accurately using a normal metal blade, and the vice holds short pieces well.
Mine uses 17mm hex for the main saw frame, and stock metal for the rest.
Probably the hardest part to locate, for me, was the motor.
Must have cost about £120 plus a fair bit of time.
|Thread: Help wanted to find article.|
Might like to look at these vids?
