|Thread: Evolution rage2|
I have an Evolution Rage saw blade which I use occasionally in my radial arm saw, for example for cutting sheet metal when it works very well.
The blade is well designed with neutral rake and chip limitation and, FWIW, made in Japan.
|Thread: Gear Train noise?|
I suppose mechanical noise is most annoying when it indicates a problem. It follows that it can be beneficial to listen to your lathe and heed its complaints.
|Thread: Diamond Like Carbon|
Who needs to talk to the engineer when you can get such interesting information from one or other oily rag?
|Thread: Moore & Wright Automatic Centre Punch|
I can send you a scan of the catalogue page with instructions and cutaway drawing for M&W 282.
PM me your email if interested.
|Thread: Tanking slurry|
There used to be an effective cement additive called Pudlo.
|Thread: ML7 tooling|
I'm fairly sure it was 5/8".
|Thread: Mini Lathe Headstock Lube|
Being equally pedantic, I think they are made by SIEG! This German word hints, I understand, at the origin of the lathe design.
|Thread: Gemco shaper finally fixed.|
Sounds suspiciously like Sicilian olive oil!
|Thread: Martin Cleeve Swing Clear Retracting Toolholder|
Yes, but machined from solid rather than fabricated in the MC way.
|Thread: Please Avoid Political and Partisan Issues|
1751 S. Johnson Rambler No. 182. ⁋12 He sometimes presumed to mention Marriage; but was always answered with a Hoot, and a Flounce.
As it happens, there are plenty of joking references here to wives which pass without comment.

|Thread: Drawing of a Turret Clock Escapement : John Harrison|
I didn't know or had forgotten about the sub-contracting culture; perhaps I didn't pay sufficient attention when visiting Greenwich to see the wonderful Harrison movements some years ago.
I recently learned that a remote ancestor built the clock in the tower of Gottorp (Gottorf) castle in Schleswig.
|Thread: BOMBSHELL!! ...at last!|
To be useful a 38mm bore would require something like a (heavy) 8" 3J chuck.
|Thread: Keighley Lifts (Denham Junior) lathe|
Tony at lathes.co.uk has "literature".
|Thread: Oouch hot fingers|
A CBN wheel will run cooler; better yet a water-cooled diamond wheel (pawn the loved one's ring).
|Thread: Churchill Cub lathe|
Thanks for explaining.
I seem to remember that some "visibility" problems with the website were caused by ad blockers; if you are using one you could try disabling it temporarily.
I have just had a similar problem with the myGP app on my mobile where an essential OK button was hidden by a dialogue box, the answer being to nudge the box out of the way.
|Thread: Red Paint|
I think the traditional colour scheme for barns in Denmark is ochre and red.
|Thread: Suitable motor for universal pillar tool?|
If you are serious about the UPT it would pay you to get GHT's book even though the motorisation possibilities are different today.
|Thread: Walton broken tap extractor|
I have had success on one occasion with a Walton; as with many things, it is important to follow the instructions!
|Thread: Churchill Cub lathe|
Looking at your existing photos makes me think that we would all be the poorer if you were unable to upload any more and I hope you will be able to fix the problem.
In particular, I would like to see a photo of the Cub.
|Thread: Rocol T.F.P Spray|
Thank you for enlightening me; I was thinking of something along the lines of STP (scientifically treated petroleum).
