|Thread: Spark Erosion|
I am putting all my time into making the model hope to beg, borrow of hire time on someone else's spark erode.
Has anyone got a spark erosion tool that I could use. I need to make some 1:12 scale extrusion dies this involve making a shape that will fit inside a 3/8 circle and cut down 0.125" of steel. I have made 10 blanks they are 0.833" dia 0.125" thick. I will make the electrodes. For notes on my project see www.boscott.co.uk Thank you for your time Paul Boscott
|Thread: CNC converting|
I have just updated my mill and was very impressed with the help I got from CNC4YOU Ltd MK
|Thread: ME Exhibition at Leamington|
Yes I thought the area was smaller but all the trade stands I remembered were there. As always got nearly all my list plus some. Can anyone help me find some 10BA steel stud looking for two 8 inch lengths
|Thread: 3D printers coming of age...?|
I am assuming that the idea is that plastic passes through security more easily
|Thread: Demagnetizing digital caliper?|
I foolishly measured a strong magnet and mine was attracting everything I hooked up a coil through an AC Variable Transformers It de magnetised it and it still works OK
I would like to see sometimes Mack 3 articles would an answer be to use this web site for the code to save column inches (mm) this would also cut and paste of the code
Because of those articles I an now running Mach3 on my mill and am very pleased with the result
|Thread: Expert projects|
Try mine www.boscott.co.uk I have just finished a 3D printer to make some of the small repeated plastic parts also from Ebay I have bought a PLC Controller to provide the logic interface
|Thread: A simple question|
May I rephrase the question to its more common form.
Why does a steam engine not work.
|Thread: Stuart Triple|
I would tend to agree with Ian.
I have built a triple and though I had a sense of satisfaction when 850 hours later it worked the machining was a bit samey also as I did not run it on steam the timing had to be messed about with to compensate for the fact that compressed air does not condense like steam does.

|Thread: Living with the digital copies|
On the up side I know exactly where the magazine is and do not have to rummage the cupboards or wish I had kept then in order or justify storing copies that are years old just in case I might one day want to know how to set up a fixed steady as I did today the MEW number 44 was right in front of me.
|Thread: When does one have to be concerned?|
If issue 178 is expected to have reached a postal address why can I not see it in my digital subscription

|Thread: New technology in Model Engineers Workshop|
That's much more in the spirit of the discussion.
Good 3D solid Cad drawings posted on line. The way forward. Now if we were to use a plastic 3D printer to create the mould. We would only be a few years behind what's going on.
Looking at it like that the old issues of model engineer were much closer to the cutting edje of what was going on at the time.
|Thread: Readers survey|
Is the Survey accesable to Digital only subscribers?
|Thread: What's Next after CNC ----3D printing?|
How long before these become available to the home constructor?
I found this after seeing the "3D creation Lab" stand at The Harrogate show
|Thread: This months MEW are 3 CNC features two too many|
Model Engineer has always showcased the latest technology I see no reason the Model Engineers Workshop should not follow in that tradition.
