|Thread: Chuck Guard|
when I got my Chester Comet lathe it came with a solid steel guard, as I don't have x-ray eyes I threw it away.
|Thread: Improved performance over standard V belts?|
I think the only real advantage is, you don't have to take the lathe apart to replace them.
|Thread: Sieg SX3 chuck guard|
I removed the guard on my Chester Comet lathe the day I got it, main reason being, it was made from sheet steel and I couldn't see a damn thing through it!
|Thread: Nemett engine enquiry|
I built the Nemett engine from the model engineer series
I never got the book and didn't need it.
I documented my build on this forum if you are interested.

On average, 4 or 5 reversals per million years.

|Thread: It's not rocket science|
they were not mole grips, they were metal shears to cut through the aluminium meteorite shield.

|Thread: Better tool system for chineese lathes?|
|Thread: Upgrade from SC3 lathe|
I have the Chester version of this lathe and am happy with it .
to see what can be done with this lathe go on Youtube and search for "Clickspring"
he's an Australian guy and I wish I could make my lathe do what his does.
his channel is well worth watching.
|Thread: What an earth are they called......|
if you right click on the above picture and choose "search google for image" there are loads of them.
not surprisingly they are called E clips.
look on E bay.
|Thread: Speed Controller - Mini Lathe|
I just found this model lathe on amazon.
there are two reviews, the second one starts' it had a faulty controller board that the supplier replaced'.
sounds like a few duff boards going round.
|Thread: Transmission Puzzle|
the story behind this is quite interesting. look up 'turbo encabulator ' on wiki.
I could very easily do that, I just don't see why I should have to.
It's been fine for 261 issues.
If it aint broke fix it til it is.
I always take the indexes /indice ? out of the mag and keep them in a folder because they are on separate sheets from the mag, until No 262. to get these out I have to deface the mag . WHY?
|Thread: Lathe steady|
Glad to help. It gives me confidence that sometimes I actually know what I'm talking about..
the way I do it is to put a short length in the chuck, turn it to the same diameter as the bar you want to work on, set the steady on to that short piece then slide the steady along to where you need it.
it works for me.
|Thread: Slitting saws|
Don't be surprised if it doesn't cut with all the teeth, none of them do,
