|Thread: Complete beginner checking in and asking the usual question!|
Well the £1,000 mentioned in his message gives a fairly substantial clue - not too many countries use the pound these days.
|Thread: Radius on a bush|
Jason and Michael have got your answer - a fabrication. That's the only way I've ever managed it.
|Thread: New Forum Moderator|
... and if yer hairs not grey now it soon will be!
|Thread: The first steam engine you built|
My first steam engine was a stuart 10V, still runs perfectly after 32 years of pretty heavy usage. Mind you, back then the castings cost around $30 - different now.
Phil's suggestion of one of Elmer's engines has a lot of merit.
|Thread: 53 tooth gear|
... or buy something like this - **LINK** and use it to lash up a simple indent type indexer.
|Thread: Shapers (obsolete or not)|
Not at all! My Douglas gets almost as much use as either of the mills, and for some jobs is streets ahead of 'em.
|Thread: hardning mild steel is it possible|
Step 1(b) You have to eat the whale, to get down to the bones.
|Thread: How much pressure is an arbour press capable of|

|Thread: Small diameter turning tool|
At the risk of repeating mysellf .....
|Thread: Meccano Model?|
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrilliant! Pass along my congrats and thanks!
|Thread: Thread Dial Indicator positions|
Well don't keep us in suspenders - what colour?
Exactly the same principal as the clapper box.
No lifting involved mate, the tool lifts of its own accord and rides back to the start position when you reverse the lathe motor. The only time you need to lift it clear is to inspect the work.
John documented his build pretty comprhensively here - **LINK** it's pretty long, but go right through it - well worth the read
... and now they are back! All very spooky!
Yep, it is a thread in a thread, so to speak - I actually used short bits of cut off screws - drilled and tapped the body pieces, screwed 'em together quite tightly, screwcut, took them apart, fitted nut and reassembled, again quite tightly, until the thread lined up again.
Now for some odd reason the pics of the tool and the close-up of the 1/2" version seem to have disappeared?????

I went a bit mad when I first made the swing up tool holder!
The 'secret' is a variation of this
Nope, it's a full, unmodified commercial 1/2" BSW nut on a screwcut thread that stops short of either end of the bar.
Good try Nobby, but it's not one of 'those' - tho I have made 'em in the past.
Or you could build John (Bogstandard) Moore's ingenius swing up toolholder and forget about disengaging OR winding the tool back.
Here's my version
|Thread: Tool angle terminology|
Certainly what you show in your original post will be understood in the UK and Oz, probably even in NZ
