Thread: Clarkson autolock chucks
10/07/2009 10:21:39
Hi There
I think that the shank are morse taper 0 or 1.
It is over 35 years since I measusred one.
Perhaps you could buy an old S type chuck with a decent centre and fit it to yours.
You could probably pick up an old 40 international one for a few quid.

Thread: WARCO have had phone problems.
09/07/2009 16:36:48
Warco would like to apologise to everyone who might have had difficulty making contact be telephone recently. We applied to ISDN with the purpose of
enhanced line clarity. BT surveyed our site and confirmed that we could
be connected.

The engineer who came to make the connection said that we
could not be connected to ISDN. Some days later our phone lines were
disconnected, due we are told to the fact that the engineer did not
report that he was unable to make the connection, consequently when the
telephone exchange tried to switch from analogue to ISDN it cut the
lines off. It took 24 hours to reverse the situation.

Worse still, one day later we were disconnected again with another 24 hour wait. Again, our apologies. BT have a lot to answer for.

Thread: The Best of Model Engineer Volume one - next special
08/07/2009 12:38:26
Hi There
I have decided to give the complete set of Boxhill plans free in the next Special.
This is a 5in. gauge model of the Brighton Terriers by Martin Evans.
It is an established design and many succesful locomotives have been built.

Hi Tere
I am looking at Springbok in 5in. gauge.
A large but very popular loco.

A lot of thespecial magazine seems to be sitting in Smiths stock rooms around the country.
Ask the staff to go and get them out for you.

Thread: A professional boiler - poor service
07/07/2009 09:47:57
Hi There
Anyone buying a custom made boiler should ask for references from recent previous customers. This should help when deciding a boiler maker.
Anyone with a long delivery time may well be a one man band who produces a good product and has a big order book.
You should also ensure you know who who is making the boiler and that it is not being sub contracted.
If anyone would like to post recomendations of good boiler makers they are welcome to do so as long as they have no connection with the firm.

Thread: vega v twin for stroke aero engine
06/07/2009 15:40:29
Hi There
A photocopy of an article for personal use is OK.
It is classed as reasonable educational use I think.
Plans are available from MyHobbyStore but they are not listed on the web site.
I will see if I can get them added.

Probably a slot drill.
If milling a flat surface, put a small chamfer on the corners of he slot drill.

Drawings are straight frames.
I have access to all drawings.
The Dukedog is parallel boiler, Dulldog tapered.

Thread: Lathe height?
02/07/2009 18:16:57
Hi There
Elbow height to cross slide handwheel height.
Bend elbow, you should be able to turn cross slide with arm horizontal.

Thread: plastic containers
02/07/2009 08:00:40
HI There
Yes, that is them.
£4.99 for 5 can't be bad.
They are good quality mouldings, not cheap blow mouldings as you would expect.
