|Thread: scam emails|
I just thought I'd let the forum know of a email scam I've just received supposedly from the BBC licencing department. They say my last direct debit has not gone through and I must set up a new one .They even say that my licence may be cancelled if I do not renew (chance would be a fine thing ) it was sent by someone @columboworld.com (not very original ) and they spelled it License and further down Licence . Just thought I'd let everone aware
|Thread: Heavy Lifting|
How do people move and store ,heavy models and equipment around the workshop and into any transport they use for transporting large models .
|Thread: Display Cases|
If you visit the web site www.sorashowcases.com it shows the cases far better than I can
I'd like to say from the outset that I have no connection with the following company other than as a satisfied customer .If anyone wants a display case at a resonable price, then I can recommend a German company, Sora-Shop. web site www.sorashowcases.com .I wanted a case to display my Stuart Triple .I sent them the measurements and the web site gives you an instant price including p&p to the UK .It came as a kit about a week later via courier and in less than half an hour was displaying my model on the shelf ,very satisfied .
|Thread: Band saw running off true|
I have an old 4 1/2" metal cutting bandsaw which has suddenly started running off true.
I tried to cut a 1/2" square piece of mild steel and noticed that it had cut about 45degrees out of true, does anyone know why this has suddenly started to happen . The blade is tight and the guide rollers are as near to the cut as I can get them .
|Thread: boxford model aud|
Thanks for the replies .I think I may have traced it to the segmented belt which may be slipping because I replaced the V belt and the motor always seems to run at the same speed no matter what the spindle speed is.
I have an old ( around late 60's) Boxford model AUD . All through the winter it has run very slowly , I've put this down to the workshop being very cold overnight and the grease in the headstock slowing things down as it gets thicker . I seem to think the same thing happened last year but can't be sure.could it be the cold, or could it be the motor getting tired . Iv'e tried warming it up ,but with it being such a high mass it dose not seem to work.
Does anyone know where I can get the instructions for Doris By L.B.S.C.
I know they were published in "Model Engineer " around 1948 but I have never seen a book published for this model
