|Thread: Using a Graver|
Plus one to your post although you are describing scraping and I believe the graver is used in a different way.
Like you, I came to metal turning via wood.
|Thread: Cleaning up new Sieg SC4 and how to remove apron|
Thanks - how time flies!
I think that Arc used to offer a preparation service which no doubt covered this query so, as suggested, I would ask them for help.
|Thread: Coping with deafness|
I recently installed an ingenious doorbell. When the outside button is pressed, a loud tone is generated at one or more receivers plugged into a mains socket. The only power required is that derived from the sockets.
I can supply details if this might help.
|Thread: Quorn using E32 collets|
There are some long and compendious memories on this site but the best answer to this kind of question is one or other of the various indexes - or even a search from the google box on the home page.
I use ER collets on my Quorn but ER32 sounds rather big for this.
PS I just tried to search on "quorn er32" and got a hit.

|Thread: Waste PLA - Rafts, Supports etc|
Is the Port of London Authority reduced to using rafts?!
|Thread: Myford Mk1 Super 7 restoration|
I think that the simple answer is that if you are going to the trouble of stripping everything down it is false economy not to replace them.
|Thread: Bar clamp|
If slitting, beware the work closing on the saw as it breaks through (the disc brake effect).
|Thread: 33mm Spanner|
"Happy Birthday" is so well-known that, if predictive text means anything at all, you would think it would get this right.
Surely the computer could be "told" not to autocapitalise?
At a guess, it was "told" to do so in the first place.
Correcting other people's English is a minefield.

The highly-regarded Campagnolo brand cycle spanners appear to have been finished by filing.
|Thread: QC Toolpost|
At first I thought the hole was for stress relief but on looking more closely is it for a pivot?
|Thread: Yet Another Mystery Object|
Reminds me of this bit of brass that an ex-dockyard friend gave me years ago:
|Thread: Dodgy Lathe on Ebay|
I assume, and hope, that your article will be about making eBay work in your/our favour?

|Thread: Please be welcoming in your welcomes.|
Whilst I don't doubt your suggestion that there have been requests for real names I can't recall seeing one myself.
I and others have certainly suggested that it would be helpful if querists would give an indication of their whereabouts, but not I hope in an unwelcoming spirit.
|Thread: Bench grinder wheel wobble|
The Abrasive Wheels Regulations are worth a look. It seems from para 49 that the use of aluminium flanges may be incorrect in some circumstances. Our old friends Picador used to sell them but I am under the impression that the company is no longer.
Because mild steel flanges can rust I have mostly used stainless.
|Thread: Screwcutting in the lathe|
I suppose the 3/4" 26 TPI nuts could be tapped or finished with a tap.
|Thread: where to buy ground lathe mandrels|
I can't vouch for the method but I have heard of the use of adjustable reamers as between centres mandrels.
|Thread: Slitting Saw Arbor|
This came to mind when I was reading about penguins' ability to project their faeces so as to avoid having to leave the nest; according to the article in The Week the research "team also calculated the “rectal pressure” required for such ejections, and found it to be 28 kilopascals".
The advice is to take care if you pick up a penguin.
|Thread: Is Iron / Steel endlessly recyclable ?|
What about the problem of contamination with cutting oil, etc?
