Cheers for that Jason, I will have a detailed look at the drawings when they arrive and compare the comments.

Thread: Auto Cad

Hi Boldminer,
Which program are you using at the moment, If its a drawing program like turbocad or indeed Autocad then when you save the drawing there is a drop down list of file extensions and one of them is DXF
simply save it as XYZ.dxf you can then copy to a disc
hope this helps

Hi all,
I went to the Amberly exhibition on Sunday, I think this was the first time I had seen so many engines freely roaming around the place. The weather was perfect, so all in all a cracking day.
I wasn't aware that there was such a diversity of engines let alone size and configuration.
Beginning to appreciate the dedication you guys have to not only build but run the engines.

Any Chance of a little more detail concerning amberly
like "where is it exactly"
how much does it cost to get in?
What are the times and dates
15/09/2009 09:13:35
Thanks gentlemen,
I can see I am going to have to give this quite some thought, as to what size do I go for,
I must admit that for practical reasons the bigger the better, Being of the old school ( mostly swinging big hammers ) or heavy engineering I am not too comfortable about using such small drills,taps and dies in the BA range, I guess this comes with experience.
Obviously I need to off set this against the costs involved with a larger machine.
Why is nothing straight forward!!!!
I think my best course of action is to gather information on the various types/sizes against cost  and practicality and what I am capable of achieveing

one last daft question
what do you mean by a 2" GMT?
14/09/2009 16:28:00
That sounds really useful
I have a warco GH1224 lathe with all the usual bits along with a vertical mill
All manual as I'm old school engineering.
also have the equipment if soldering or welding is needed
other than that no experience what so ever other than 30 years in engineering from the oil refinery to refrig and now printing industry.
My wifes family name is Burrell - not sure if there is a connection hence the need to build this type/style of engine
14/09/2009 09:45:01
I am toying with the idea of attempting to build a Burrell traction engine.
Where do I start, I am not a million miles from M J Engineers
any advice would be most welcome
Thread: Anybody else had this problem?
10/09/2009 15:38:09
Hi stupid,
been there done that

I was told that I had to enter all my details exactly as they appear on the grey wrapper

what I mean is, even down to how they have spelt your name...

my problem was I have 2 "L"s in my name but they had written only 1 L

so I had to keep entering my details until I copied my subscription details in full, then all was ok

hope this helps

good luck

Are there any in the Aldershot area?

Just to put my pennyworth in
only 1 cad its autocad mechanical, can do anything and everything
Started using it with R13 in dos and never looked back - now using 2009 and I have to say I haven't found anything yet that can't be done
Luckily it can import all of the more basic file extensions and convert into DXF
It is a hard program to learn from scratch but well worth the effort

Cracking idea to be able to see them on screen
saves me getting my copies dirty or damaged
well done
Thread: Flexipage

All seems to be working fine for me
no issues at all
Thread: To Web Master
20/08/2009 19:53:07
Ok now I'm confused
I typed in the 8 digit number in the box maked Subscrition number for MEW as I do not subscribe to the other one
I typed just the 8 numbers missing off the first 2 zero's it won't allow any more digits to be typed
saved it and it didn't make the blind bit of difference
20/08/2009 14:03:14
Sorry but just one other point
under my name what does it mean "set a status"?
20/08/2009 14:02:23
   I have just tried to enter the back issues area only to be told that its for subscribers only
I have been a subscriber for a number of years
I entered my details including the subscription number when I first joined the web site, so why won't it let me in?
Looking at the box where you enter your number - it doesn't let you enter the full number and so I have left off the first couple of zero's
any help please

Hi Dave,
             Any chance I can get a job at your place, I could do with having long holidays

I take it no news is - no book yet but keep waiting

So Dave
what happened to the books?
I have lost count of how long it has been now
any chance of an update
22/06/2009 20:20:58
Its the first time in many years of subscription that I have actually qualified for anything 
so I was a little disappointed with what had happened
no harm done, like i say its not the end of the world
thanks for the update
