I have found this thread very interesting. I have one eye worse than the other but as both will need attention at some time the consultant suggested having them both done at the same time.His reasoning was reduced exposure to the hospital environment in view of the covid situation. I have opted for distance vision as this seems to be the best compromise.
|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread 2020|
With camoflage like that you'll never find the workshop again.
My best tram memory was when a tram came into Wimbledon terminus at some speed with part of the rear platform on fire. The conductor poured sand over the flames and all was well.

I have had the charging area one as well.
|Thread: Ian S C message|
Ian, you have a PM.
I have used one similar to the PestBye available on Amazon. A bit cheaper than when I got mine some years ago.
|Thread: Adept and Wizard lathes|
Ok Rod, many thanks. The spindle looks well made with no wear so it was a guess as to its hardness. I have tried the spindle with a file now and it is not hardened.
The background to this question is that I have been given both a Wizard and a Super Adept. The Wizare is in good condition together with most accessories. Not so the Adept but it might not be beyond restoring.
Can someone let me know the considered upper spindle speed for these small lathes please? The headstock bearings are plain cast iron with a hardened shaft (or so I believe)..

|Thread: By Crook or by Fluke|
Stuart, i understand the difference now.
Robert, Thanks for the info about cleaning the zebra strip and contacts. I have IPA and so when things cool down I'll try to sort out the problem.
I have a fluke multimeter and my display has some segmente dimmed seemingly caused by the zebra strip connectors. Were you having this problem?
Thanks for the weblink

I have a pair as well. On doing a test crank, one worked and the other broke it's drive mechanism.
Too sticky to open up and repair.

I hope they don't use this as away of reducing the population to save building more housing.

|Thread: ME Jubilee Clock|
I'm not really sure how to go about this but I want to dispose of my ME Jubilee clock. Having been made by me, it is difficult to place a value on it for selling purposes but I don't really want to just give it away.
The clock has not been used for a while but when it was working it kept good time and it was nice to hear it's 'tick' or perhaps that should be 'clonk' as the pendulum is impulsed. It will have to be set up again to give best operation and I have the set of construction and adjustment notes as printed in Model Engineer 2nd October 1992. The oak case is glazed on the top and three sides.
I can email photos of the clock. Any ideas or interest would be welcome.
