Thread: ML7 refurbishment
06/07/2020 22:48:35

Hi Fastdave ,regarding back plate thread ,try putting the back plate on the wrong round to see if it goes all the way on. This should show whether the threads are the problem or the plain bit of bore.

Hope this helps.

I remember buying a new back plate for a 4 jaw chuck to fit my ML7  ,this would not go on all the way.Faceplate, catch plate and 3 jaw chuck all spun on easily by hand.

I bought a tap ,tapped the new back plate and it fitted alright then.

Thread: Mono or Multi tube water heater
19/06/2020 18:41:47

Why not use an old central heating boiler,the pump would circulate the tub water through the tub.Thermostat and controls built in.Need to change to propane. Most of the work is done .This is just an idea ,would probably work.The heat output is also known ,making any calculations easier.

Why not make an end for your gun that fits nipple correctly.Put a small o ring in the end to seal it.
