Hi ,this lamp holder is for sale on ebay , 24 volt ac bulbs for sale on Amazon . Nice easy job.
|Thread: Proxxon Micromot 60 Drill Went BANG!!!!|
Hi Richard ,I can see why the plug was inserted wrong, It’s a bad design ,if the pins were the same length ,it would not fit the wrong way.
Hi Richard ,thank you for the photos.
Hi,could you please put a clear picture of the plug and socket on .
I have thought about getting one of these.
|Thread: Time to Say Goodbye|
Hi, I have both issues upto date and can read all back issues of MEW and ME back to 4154.
using Pocketmags and 7 year old mini ipad
|Thread: late posting to pocketmags|
Hi, got email yesterday , downloaded mag this morning
|Thread: Need to cut long thin strips of steel (& plastic) - e.g. with an angle grinder?|
Hi, My angle grinder doesn’t tug sideways ,you have to practise on scrap first .What sort of angle grinder do you have ?
Hi Dave , Thanks for your reply, regarding the 3mm discs ,I agree with your angle grinder comment.
Hi, Can you please explain why an angle grinder is messy ,has broad rough cuts and is inaccurate.
Have you ever used a 4.5inch with a 1mm blade on steel sheet ,this will cut accurately.
Hi. Now your steel is cut ,you can mount it in a vice and draw file to the correct size,with care you will get a good finish, at no cost.
By the way ,what is a slam dunk
Hi, why don’t you use your Dremel and see if it works instead of keep asking others.
|Thread: Digital subscription offer|
Hi,Stuart Thank you for the advice
Hi, I subscribed to both £10 offers before Christmas .I can read all MEWs and all MEs on my 7 year old Ipad, but not on my Android tablet.
|Thread: Controlled release of a Clarke Bottle Jack fitted to an engine building stand|
Hi,I would thread or weld a nut on to the above part .Then get a ring spanner ,cut it and extend it,your hand would be out of the way while operating the jack. Hope this helps . I always look for easiest ,cheapest way ,as long as its safe. Please all feel free to criticise.
|Thread: Help with car boot finds|
Hi, I’ve recently cleaned rusty tools in white vinegar ,soak overnight or longer ,then use wire brush ,steel wool or scotchbrite .

|Thread: Wanner grease-gun thread ?|
Hi,I made a new end for a grease gun and the thread was 1/8 bsp ,this is 0.383 in dia and 28 tpi . The same as what you have measured.
Drill a hole ,tap it 1/8bsp and see if it fits.
|Thread: Small Hydraulic Press Tools|
This looks easy to scale down and make as bench press. It also has the workpiece at the bottom ,safer in my opinion .Looks like it can be made without welding.
|Thread: Saving the Planet … or is it ?|
Hi, I remember Methane being pumped from fractured shale strata down coal mines more than 50 years ago,the strata fractured as the face moved forward . Holes were bored into the strata above the face ,pipes inserted and gas collected and pumped to the surface. This was at a depth of 2500 feet.
I can’t remember it ever affecting drinking water
|Thread: Solar Panel Slew bearing, van hub?|
Hi, this unit contains the bearing .If you mount the side with 4 bolts to the static side of your pole and the side with 5 wheel studs to the panel side, Your panel will turn on the bearing.
This type of bearing is used on other 4x4 as well ,so should be very cheap at breakers yard.
