Thread: Medding MF4 drill pulley
13/10/2017 06:26:25

Sorry if it seems silly - are you really sure there isn't a small grub screw hiding at the bottom of the hole. I've been caught by a seemingly empty little black hole only to find a short grub at the bottom.


Thread: Warco Mini Lathe Emergency stop / Direction control not resetting?
02/10/2017 05:37:12

Hello Chris,

Try giving the stop button a pull. I found that the stop button mechanics had loosened so that the switch located in the bottom portion of the switch assembly had moved so that it did not work correctly.


Thread: Hello, I'm John

Hello all,

I'm John in Chippenham Wiltshire and recently taken up model engineering. Being fairly new to machining, I signed up at the local college for evening classes to learn how to use the lathe and milling machines.

I have started making a two cylinder flame eater as a college project, and a gauge 1 "Dot" to see how it is done.

I have enjoyed following some threads and thought it time to say hello.
