|Thread: Parting 1 1/2 phosphor Bronze|
Missed the text!! 3" dia PB tool overhang a bit long, Machine is M300
|Thread: A Manual of the Hand Lathe|
The Myford on page 4 is a woodworking lathe. The earliest prices I have are 1956. ML7 £51 17 6 + motor
By 1960 the price was £63 12 6 Chucks etc were an extra.
|Thread: New Scam Amazon|
I have had several calls claiming my Amazon account has a very large order placed and also My Prime subscription has been renewed etc.For a start, Amazon do not have my phone number and it is Ex Directory anyway. Do not have Prime either.
Scam number starts 00164 which apparently is well known.
|Thread: Fohrmann Not Shipping to the UK|
"On shoring" is the new model to follow.
|Thread: Bad finish on BMS|
Medicines that have turmeric contraindications include anticoagulants, antiplatelets, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). If you take any drugs of these types or if you are unsure, talk to your doctor.
I take an anticoagulant to ward of embolisms (one session of a triple PE was enough for me), so Turmeric is not an option.
|Thread: Cracked motor mounting plate|
As it is cast iron, it would best be preheated and then welded by a specialist cast iron welder. Alas my best welder is not now available.
|Thread: Smart Meters & temperature/BA thread size relationship|
Of course nothing is for free, WE are paying for the so called smart meter roll out, something around £420 EACH customer by unnecessary raised bills.
How many years of being careful will that take to pay off?
Only EDF pestered me to fit one, they got a swift answer which had the desired effect.
|Thread: Advice for a newbie on tools and tool post for a Myford super 7|
Cutwel will supply you and although the Myford does have slower speeds they are more than adequate for our use of insert tooling.
Don't be put off by the doom sayers, learn how to use them and they are fine.
|Thread: Shipping delays and costs|
Border Referendum? .
No hard border? I see the Guarda have road blocks checking car registration and red/green diesel use.
|Thread: Myford ML7 Chucks - Which one?|
I have found that TOS brand (Czech) chucks have been reasonable in price and within their stated specifications.
|Thread: Myyford gearbox strip down|
OP's gearbox is a Mk2 but same principles apply.
|Thread: The Repair Shop is getting to me...|
The "repairers" are really "conservators", it is possible to go to West Dean College (not far from the Repair Shop Barn on the same estate) to learn the skills displayed in the programme.
The programme is a popular interest TV item, not an instructional course for experts, many of whom apparently exist on this Forum.
As said above, you do not have to watch it.
|Thread: MEW 300 IS HERE !|
Mine arrived today, good "anniversary" edition. I have a post delivery every day, at least I see the Postie even if none for me that day. Guess I am lucky.
|Thread: ME magazine late again|
My copy arived (NE Hants) Saturday.
|Thread: Super 7 Lathe Clutch, Countershaft or Pulley Wobble|
I am with those who consider it is a clutch problem. There is no doubt from the video that the outer part of the cluch runs true under power but the inner cone (clutch plate)is wobbling. I doubt that the Countershaft is bent but it could be or there is something trapped between the prongs of the Drive plate. Pity about the Tier 4 as I am not that far from Farnham.
|Thread: PAT - Portable Appliance Test|
I would consider a Megger 1720 would be used for IEE 18th Edition Regs testing and NOT as a PAT tester. Megger make a PAT specific tester.
|Thread: Which Slideway Oil 68 or 32|
ISO 68 Slideway oil for slideways. ISO 32 Hydraulic oil for lubrication. It's not just the viscosity that matters, slideway oil has a cling factor to keep it on the slideways, even the vertical ones.
|Thread: A Certain Age|
Regarding Larry's point, have you noticed the signs on the hospital wards list?
Older persons when you get there it is still numbered G, ie Geriatric
