Thread: C A D for Mac
29/05/2009 13:07:49
Hi There
The Mac version is quite an old version I think.
regards David
Thread: workshop data chart
27/05/2009 08:01:19
Hi There
Buy a Zeus book from Chronos.
Probably about £5 + postage.
We will be putting data charts up soon.
regards David
Thread: Website Articles - Suggestions Please
27/05/2009 07:59:01
Hi There
We will be putting the datasheets on the web.
Individual charts rather than large charts that no one can print out.
LBSC is not our copyright so can't do that.
One reader at least is fabricating the Centaur gas engine.
The Trojan, The Corsair and the Cygnet Royal could all be made without castings.
We can put a Martin Evans gauge 1 locomotive onto the site.
regards David
Thread: copyright

Hi There
Copyright in an article as originally written or modified stays with the author until 75 years after his death.
The copyright of an article as laid out and published belongs to Myhobbystore Ltd. We can supply photocopies and also reprint the entire magazine including all articles and adverts as originally published as a printed magazine, on a CD or on the web.

We can't reuse the articles on their own.

The author cannot offer reprints of the article as laid out.

Some authors such as Edgar westbury and Martin Evans were employed by Model Engineer and their articles are copyright Myhobbystore Ltd.

That is why the recent free plans in Model engineer were by these two authors.

I have permission from Tom Walshaw's (Tubal Cain) widow to put his articles on the web.
If anyone reading this has written for ME or MEW and would like their articles to appear on the web, please email me at

regards David

Thread: Hart grinding rest
25/05/2009 21:45:22
Hi There
I was outbid by £1.
I have a Clarkson but it is in a large shed with
all sorts of other stuff stored.
There is nowhere to set it up in the workshops.
I don't like grinding in the workshop anyway.
I need another decent shed but can't get one where I am in Scotland.
Not at a reasonable price anyway.
regards David

Hi There
Does anyone know if the set of castings for the Hart tool grinding rest are still available?

Thread: Granite Surface plates
25/05/2009 17:54:44
Hi There
I bought a granite Trivet from Tesco yesterday.
It is polished on one side.
About 8 inches 200mm square at a guess and all for about £4.

Thread: Model Engineer Workshop Manual by Thomas?
24/05/2009 18:38:26
Hi There
Pretty sure Chronos sell it and their delivery is usually fast.

Thread: Mitsubishi Octamill
23/05/2009 23:05:25
Hi here
I am lookingfor some reasonably priced carbide tips for a Mitsubishi Octamill.
I think they are LNXH 106PNER.
I could do with four tips.
Grade suitable for steel or cast iron.
regards David
Thread: Casting of full size engines
23/05/2009 18:02:49
Hi There
If you look on Ebay you might find some casting firms who will do castings for a reasonable price.
If you do the engine, please consider writing it up for Model Engineer magazine.

Thread: Congratulations

Hi wahiba
I have added the topic.
One I overlooked when setting them up.

Thread: hot air fan
22/05/2009 12:12:18
Hi There
I can probably supply.
I think I know the article you mean.
It was back in the late 60s I think.
If you have the author name, let me know.
regards David
Thread: Posilock threads.
22/05/2009 07:34:41
Hi Chris
What is the internal diameter of the thread?
Usually drawbars are 3/8 Whit or 10mm.
The Clarke is more likely to be metric so  I would try a 10mm bolt in it first.
If that fits, buy a bit of 10mm studding (threaded rod) from B&Q.
Larger Bridgeport type mills are usually 7/16UNF.
regards David
Thread: Granite Surface plates
22/05/2009 07:30:05
Hi There
Are you sure they need to be lapped?
They might be flat enough.
Before I bought a proper granite surface plate, I used a granite chopping board from Argos which appeared to be flat enough for model engineering purposes and only cost about £10.
regards David

Thread: MEW issue 151
21/05/2009 07:40:03

I will ask why.

Hi There
If you are in the UK and have not received MEW 151, I would request a replacement.
It should have arrived by now.
