Hello JasonB I agree with your sentiments about fixings. I have used the
chart to find the nearest BA size, so all I need now is to make or buy some studding and nuts in 3-4-6-7-8-9-11 BA. Thanks for your help.

Hello. Does any one know of a chart that lists UNC -UNF screws along side
their metric or imperial matches, or has any one an easy way to transpose the same. I am considering making the Snow Engine, the list of fasteners contain many sizes I have not come across and would be a bit tiresome to make, such as
0-80x3/16,1-72x 3/16, 2-56 x1/8 socket head cap screws. Idealy I need a U.K supplier of these sizes all in all there are over twenty different sizes a total of about one hundred and sixty screws.

Hi I usually collect my brass scrap in a 1Kg margarine carton and take to the scrap yard when passing that way on other other journeys, usually take away a small billet of brass or aluminium in exchange. They will give cash if you prefer.

Thread: 4 jaw Self centering chuck
17/08/2010 20:00:53
Hi Many thanks to all those who gave an opinion to my query, I dont think I need to get one just yet.. Thanks Again Brian.

Hello. Are 4jaw s/c chucks any better with normal circular material than three jaw s/c chucks. I can see the advantage for turning a round on something perfectly square or drilling through the centre of a square, but are there enough advantages to justify the cost. I ask this question because someone said get your self a four jaw s/c, but could not say why when pressed.
