|Thread: dripping tap|
Since this is the cold water tap it could well be that the incoming water contains "particles" that are water mains born and need to be filtered out.
|Thread: Not enoughh CO2 ?|
The bottomless pit of subsidies to state owned assets? No not again.
All we need now is for Mr P to stop gas supplies.
|Thread: Back to Imperial|
Plywood being yesterday's product is no doubt still made on imperial sized machinery?
|Thread: Multimeter recommendations|
I bought my AVO8 (Tropical version) in 1959 brand new and it cost me the princely sum of £55. Still going strong today.
Replaced the leads and clips for later versions. Works for me. Throw away cheap meters have their uses however.
|Thread: Read the small print|
Even with a torque wrench you can have trouble. Once had a wheel refitted after a wheel rebalance by the mechanic using a digital readout Snap On. Checked it when I got home using my click type torque wrench. No could undo.
Drove back and had to have same mechanic do it again.
It might have a digital readou or click but a gorilla can simply pull it past the set point whatever they use.
|Thread: UK fires up old coal power plant as gas prices soar|
When the wind does not blow there is plenty of alternative hot air about. Mind you not much good for generating power.

|Thread: A stark reminder to leisure cyclists !|
North bound on the M6 years ago I came across (and missed) a neatly folded LARGE tarpaulin, shortly after I passed a police patrol car and had the "fun" of pulling him over to report it. He radioed for backup to recover it.
|Thread: Whirlpool cooker|
A source of replacement Whirlpool halogen elements for a hob would be most usefull.
|Thread: Keeping fit and the economy|
Interesting translation of "out of sight, out of mind" = blind idiot
|Thread: Consequences of Machining Cast Iron|
Always wear a mask when machining cast iron, the carbon particles are vey fine and not good for your health.
Seems like a lack of "Systems Engineers" who understand the overall principles and too many "my box" experts.
|Thread: Pythagorean Triples … in Babylon !|
Thank you Micheal.
|Thread: Taps and Dies|
I have never bought a Tap & Die set, just buy the ones you need when you need them, but you must plan ahead so you have them to hand. Spiral flute for first choice. Spiral taps feed the swarf out rather than trapping it in the flutes = less breakages.
|Thread: HydroVane PR303E question|
Tiger, yes but I run mine attached to an old red floor standing fire extinguisher
|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread 2021|
I remember being at a Club meeting (as a visitor) when we were reviewing some milling cutter costs. One member commented that he could not afford such prices, did not like it one bit when I suggested that perhaps he was into the wrong hobby.
|Thread: tool post stud|
The original toolpost stud must have been changed before you acquired the lathe. My M7 has its original stud and I have a 4 way block which uses it. The Myford Quick Change block is also Ok on it.
|Thread: To ER is human but ER collets could be divine|
Things bought from Arc Euro will also be fine, good supportive supplier.
|Thread: George Thomas retractable slide for the myford.|
Or alternatively you could make a Graham Meek style leadscrew reversing clutch and have the motor continue to run in a forwards direction.
GHT style retractable slide is, I find, very useful indeed.
|Thread: Some rather crass “Model Engineering” from Mercedes|
So good german engineering rusts rather well in actual practice, which of course we already know.
|Thread: German Tec|
Revenge for leaving?
