|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,
|Thread: Couple of interesting books free to download|
They are great books, I have them both in hardback.
They give an idea when the currency changed, the engine one is 1969 and cost 18 shillings and the boiler one is 1971 and cost £1-25.
I still have a read through them, they are well worn.
|Thread: Ebay chuckle|
I've got one like that, had it at least 25 years, got it in buy and queue for £30.
it, s done everything I needed.
|Thread: Bearing Click|
If it's any help, when I spin my spindle in neutral I get a lot of rattling, turned out it was the turny bits the chuck key fits into, I wrapped a turn of tape round the chuck and .............total silence.
now I know what it is i can ignore it.
|Thread: Araldite to seal a tender tank|
Oh gawd, that didn't come out the way it was meant.
it was just a play on words; chilli con carne= silicon carney.
A bead of silicon carney should do the trick.
