I had one from them last year and it was very good and still using it yet, I think it was good value for the money

Thread: Silver soldering

Hi, Many thanks for all the replies, tried this today and it appears to have worked,once everything was up to heat it seemed to just flow together, As i have never tried this sort of work before i thought it was worth asking on here first knowing some people would come up with answers, Thanks everyone

Hi, The cast is cast iron (ex window weight, carron) and going to be soldered to steel box iron which will be the water jacket, Thanks

Hi, This could be a stupid question to ask some of you but as i have never done it before, I am going to silver solder a cast sleeve to a steel water jacket must i heat up the cast first or can i just start and solder it

The reason i am asking is that i thought that the cast would crack if not heated up The water jacket is 50mm x 50mm x 60mm long and the cast sleeve is 38 mm outside and 30mm inside and 65mm long, Many thanks for any help

You can contact Myfordboy at the saw plans are very good

Hi, Les I think the plans were about 10 pounds, I had a set from Myfordboy last year and they are very good, I have just got the saw made now and seems to work very well but I did not get it as accurate as him, but according to him it depends how well it is made,if you send him an email he will let you know the price

As this is going to be my first purchase of a boring head, I would like someone to explain what is the max size of a hole that a 50mm head will do, sorry for being so stupid but I have never used one before, Thanks for your help

Hi Chris,
                     You will not be disapointed with the tool,I purchased one about a year ago and never looked back I know it is a bit expensive but everything is there and it is so easy to sharpen again even for a beginner as I was at the time (and still learning)

Thread: Best price for Bronze
15/11/2010 16:33:08
Thanks Terryd and everyone that replied I have tried Macc models and they quoted me 2.50p postage on a length of 12'' x 1/2"" a huge difference from the 38 pounds I was quoted from the first shop I tried,so I now know who will get the order.

Where could I purchase bronze rod from,tried one modeling site and they quoted me 16.50p for 13mm x 500mm but the postage was 38 pounds extra, Yes I do live on an island in north scotland but I think this is a bit of a rip off, surely there must be a better deal somewhere,

Hi Ken, As I said before you would not be disapointed with the cutter,I found out to, that the sharping was very easy and a pleasure to do, as I myself was not an expert at  getting the sharping perfect most of the times, so in the meantime Happy Turning.

Hi Ken, The time that I had to wait was somewhere about the same,as I was away on holiday I am not sure how many days it took but it should be with you any day now and it should be worth the wait .  PS I got an email from Eccentric when they posted it
06/08/2009 20:25:22
HI, Colin I am in the U K and purchased the tool from Eccentric Engineering who come from Australia,Tool price was 125 dollars + 12 dollars postage which was somewhere about £68, and Ken you will not be disapointed with your purchase
03/08/2009 20:22:40
I have gone and purchased the tool and tried it out ,what a pleasure to use and to sharpen it is so easy, I know the price is high but as modeng 2000 states you soon spend the same money on other tools,looking forward to using it more often
