|Thread: Aircraft General Discussion|
The sound of a single Merlin is great when you are sitting just behind it!
|Thread: Powering a Suds pump?|
Is the lathe running on a VFD? The added load of the suds pump would probably not be noticed by a VFD and all would be normal, except if you are running at a low speed. Suck it and see.
|Thread: Layout tool|
Lee Valley Tools operate in Ottawa, Ontario, but they cannot send one of these to Quebec,(next door Province).
'improvements patented in Europe Dec 1885'. in France perhaps? Hence the strange Quebecois position.

|Thread: Which stand for Myford ml7|
It really needs something more rigid then "just a chest of drawers"
When you adjust the mounting bolts to correctly set up the lathe bed in accordance with the Myford ML7 Manual, there will likely be some twisting force that a chest of drawers will not resist. That said, when I first had a ML7( 68 years ago) it just sat on a bench and did what I needed at the time.
Although now unused (I have oher lathes) it sits mounted on a substantial bench, the top of which disguises the fact that underneath there is a large piece of channel girder!
|Thread: Hello - Uni or apprenticeship|
Like Frances IOM I am an IET Member (retired), being an electrical I have worked in electronics, aviation, computer, broadcasting and medical companies, a wide choice of opportunities. The same could well apply with the other major Engineering Institutions.
Good advice as given, start with the vatious professional institutions and then work your way to what companies in those fields can offer for you to start.
|Thread: New-style cover finish|
I think that adhesion is the way the paper picks up the mag before the envelope is folded over.
|Thread: MEW No.316 just arrived - but what is that smell?|
I find all modern printing inks are horrible. I have to leave the copies for a while or else I just start coughing. I am also allergic to newsprint as well as what the Journalist write!
|Thread: Time to Say Goodbye|
MEW June issue arrived today 17th May
|Thread: Looking for a Sharpening Service for End Mills & Slot Drills please|
+1 for ABBCO, excellent service and quality. I used to stop by every year on the way to Harrogate Show, They even recovered a cherished long cutter which had met an unfortunate end (on someone else's mill)!

|Thread: Self extracting drawbar for mill|
Location pin is not that important, I have run my R8 without one quite satisfactorily.
I made an air driven drawbar, spindle does not need to be locked as "inertia" holds it enough for the drabar to tighten or release. 'Twas important to fit this as reaching the top with a spanner is stretching it a bit!
|Thread: Time to Say Goodbye|
My subscriptions have continued during the changeover WITHOUT fail, so why do some appear to have a problem?
Incidently my other subscriptions with Mortons have always been prompt.
|Thread: Super 7 adjustments question|
This is of course correct for production standard S7s, however a number of users have fitted taper roller bearings to good effect which should give a more rigid bearing set up.

After point 7 above (hand tighten collar using the hex key as a lever) Do not forget to then tighten the Allen screw to secure the collar in place.
All quite straight forward as decribed.
|Thread: electrolytic derusting|
Both electrodes will bubble, one with oxygen and the other with hydrogen.
|Thread: Emergency Radio Format|
Hermes is now "called" EVRI. perhaps that means every mistake possible
I fear that 100Mt delivered one at a time would be more effective.
I have Aldershot to the east and Aldermaston to the west, there is not much I can do about it, inspite of having been Civil Defence trained.
No good if your phone is switched off or you have left it at home.
|Thread: Reilang Oil Can Nozzle Thread|
The brass tube is 6mm OD. If I was going to tap M5, I would certainly use a Spiral Flute tap because the swarf would cut and clear more easily.
More simply make a suitable length brass rod extender, bored through at say 2mm for the oilway and counter bored each end 6mm, soft/hard solder in place.
3/16" BSF plug tap does not fit tube internal thread Too large OD
