Thread: Help needed, can't release cast iron wheel
06/03/2021 21:07:32

One other thought, drill a large hole into the centre of the shaft allowing the shaft to give a little and once the pulley is free tap a thread into the hole to replace the space with a plug.

Are you able to apply pressure from the rear with a pair of wedges and a G clamp as well as the puller.

Bill, your saw has two bearing guides either side of the blade, is there a third one sitting on top of the blade to stop the blade riding up.

AS already said, check the weld and look for teeth missing, can you open the blade guides slightly because the weld might be slightly thicker when going between them.

Do you also have a guide pushing down the blade, the weld may not be flat along the edge catching the guide there also.

Thread: Bearing puller
28/02/2021 21:20:26

I have a three bearing puller which can also be used as an internal puller, I also have a two legged puller, whether you use a three or two legged puller is down to whether either will fit. Machine Mart sell a flat plated puller with various legs, part no 040810698, I have one and it works well.

Thread: Digital Callipers - again

I would recommend a ‘left hander’ as it makes checking on the lathe sooo much easier.🙂

I'm left handed and use my calipers upside down, the left handed once I've seen are expensive particulary when I can buy resonable quality ones for £20.00.

Thank you Gentlemen, it was the WDYDT2021 that raised the question.

If I wanted to make a small brazing hearth what type of brick should I use.

Thread: Facebook's Portal & Privacy
15/02/2021 10:25:55

My Daughter and I now have Portal tv and are both impressed with its abilities particularly how it follows you around the room, via whatsapp it gives my wife and I a good video view of our nearly two year old Grandson, as regards spying on us electronically I doubt its no worse than all the other devices we already use.

I get a report from google once a month as to where I have been as its tracking my phone, I just feel that because of my job it could be used by the authorities to see who I visited should I become positive with the virus.

My wife got a text message on Wednesday from our Surgery so we booked on line for tomorrow and on Thursday she got a letter from the local NHS, I got mine two weeks ago as I'm a part time Chemist delivery driver.

What peope are forgetting is that even thought you may have had the injections you should follow distancing rules and wearing the mask as you could be a carrier.

Thread: 1-2-3 Block Clamping

I have always wondered what you did with the blocks so as a "begginner" in some aspects I like the idea and have a project waiting for a set.

Thread: Covoid jabs
02/02/2021 20:32:35

I am 66 and have a part time job delivering medication for a local chemist, I was deemed by the powers that be to be a "health care worker" a title I'm not worthy of but I was told to attend our local hospital as a walk in, no booking required, so last Wednesday I joined the queue of other Health care workers and the booked appointments, it took two hours of paperwork work etc including the 15 mins wait which we were all given the choice of tea, coffee, water and biscuits, my injection was Pfizer and I've had no side effects at all. My wife is 69 and like me is classed as vunerable because of health issues but as yet we have had no indication of when we are were to have it.
