|Thread: Missing posts|
It is the same IPad I have been using for a long time.
I think Warco Major was Martin Cottrell and turning tool was original poster. Nothing controversial about turning tools. Did not see post about warco Major.
I have noticed two posts are missing. The first one from turning tool asking about pcbn tipped tool holders and the last one about Warco Major mill where the last time stamped post 12.54 has disappeared. Any suggestions what is going on?

|Thread: Turning tool holder|
I think Kennametal do them. I think that is where I used to buy the tips.
|Thread: Name that collet quiz|
Almost certainly acramil. Try searching EBay for Bristol Erickson or Kennametal.
|Thread: Views on warco Major Mill|
There is a workaround for vertical alignment for a round column mill.
What you do is to use a wobbler. Starett or similar top hat version is best. You either need two wobblers, a long one and a short one, or one wobbler and an extension. Just wobble the first set of operations, either the long or short one, do them then change the wobbler for the other one.
This solves the problem of alignment. I used this method when I had a a Dore Westbury round column mill.
I did have long wobbler but it was the only one I have ever seen so you may have to use the extension option.
If one scale works has the user changed leads over to each other to see if the scales still work the same or are reversed?

Hi Tom welcome to the forum. There have been many designs for Stirling engines in past Model Engineers.

The VMC would be better if you can afford it. It has dovetails all over rather than the round column of the Warco Major. The latter may be a disappointment when you need to lower or raise the column because of loss of alignment.
|Thread: test bar - between centres|
Do one end between centres, turn round and do the other end at the same setting.

|Thread: What Did You Do Today (2016)|
I never smoked and drink was minimal if at all. Maybe 1 or 2 tins of cider in the last couple of years. One every few months.
|Thread: MEW 237 Three Jaw Chuck Mount|
If you read my article on this site, there is an easy way to drill chuck back plates.
Hi Lambton. KWIL did several articles for MEW but I am not sure if he did any for ME. But what has KWIL got to do with this thread which appears to be about Kiwi Bloke 1?
I don't think there was much wrong with the proof reading of the old editor (me). You will never get it perfect but there were not many errors.
|Thread: Why not Write for Model Engineers Workshop in 2016?|
My illness happened after I was sacked from ME and MEW. I always had sufficient articles purely because l asked for more even though I did not need them straight away. I alway put the best articles in first that I had which meant some were delayed. I also talked to people to generate required articles.
I learnt my engineering from Model Engineer in the 1960s in the school library. I went on to earn a £1000 a week in engineering from reading Model Engineer.
Tooling does have a place in ME as does the basics of CNC. Nothing has ever been too advanced for ME in the past.
I think Model Engineer has lost its way slightly. I tried to get away from the every other issue syndrome and tried to put articles in consecutive issues. This encourages readers to buy every issue to get a series and also to subscribe.
Many readers like to get all parts of a series before they start construction.
MEW is finally improving. The last 3 issues have had interesting article(s) in them. I always think that a magazine is worth reading if I learn something from it.
MEW has to run multiple part articles as you will never get enough short articles.
I did occasionally send articles to Ketan for checking if it concerned an Arc Euro Trade product and Ketan also gave me universal bearing numbers.
I did not see anything wrong with this.
If Diane knows nothing about CNC and prefers to leave the article as written I am sure Neil could give it a look over for obvious mistakes before printing it.
Finally to all beginners: no question is stupid if you don't know the answer. Ask away, you will not look foolish. I still ask stupid questions if I don't know the answer.

|Thread: Ouch !!!! and a quiz|
|Thread: Hello from South Wales|
Hi Jonathan. I too have a Warco WM180 and am into 16mm scale. I think there are quite a few 16 mm modellers on the forum. You will find a mill very useful for milling and drilling larger items like loco frames. The Warco WM14 mill would probably be fine for 16mm, at least it does what I need.
I think the avatar is a Charles Pooter (not sure if spelling is correct).
|Thread: Rotary Table|
The small warco one would be ideal.
Warco do a small rotary table with 4 slots and low centre height for about £50-60.
