Hello to All.

Thread: Mild Steel as material for gears
16/12/2010 20:23:21
Hej Jens
Nu kommer jeg fra Danmark, så norsk skulle ikke være noget problem
Sorry !
What I wrote to Jens, was that I'm from Denmark and will have no problem in reading Norwegian text.
 I was able to get this book from my labrary also - this forum is simply great
Thank you all

Hello Sam
Thank you for the words, I allready has found a lot of comfort in this forum, and I'm sure I'll come back here a lot.
My next step in the process of building a clock will be studying as much material as I can get hold off, before I start in the workshop. This evening I'm going to the library to pick up the books recomended by Jens Skogstad
For now I'm unsure wether the first attemp will be of a known design, or if it will be of my own design.

Hello to all of you.
Thank you for all your support.
I'm aware that the beat (lenght) of the pendulum will give a clock its working speed and thus the movement of the dials, so a recalculation of the gearing will be nessasary.
I have ordred the book suggested by Jens, thank you.
I'll bear in mind to use different material in meshing wheels.

Hello Tony and Norman
Thank you for your reply.
I'm working on the 15 day skeleton clock article by John Parslow,  from the ME issue 4233 and forward.
I would however like to make a clock a little lower in overall height, but I'm a little unsure about the pendullum. I suppose the beat is proportional to the lenght, but if the pendullum is going faster, like 288 beats, will it be impossible to make the escape mechanism work ?  
I getting hold of some books on the subject of clock making, but I have also found some suggestion on books in this forum, so maybe I will have check out these also.

Hello Folks
As I'm having to have a break from making Steam Engines, I'm considering a project of making a clock.
Mostly (allways) I see that the gears is made from brass, why is steel not used for clocks, is it estetic reason or will it be a problem to use steel ?

Thread: Milling In The lathe
02/11/2010 21:35:27
Hello Paul
I have been making all of my miling work on my lathe for years, and have never been using anything but the 3 jaw chuck to hold my end mills.
When milling in the lathe you can only make very light cuts, like 0,3 mm at each run.
All my models have been made with work from my lathe, you can see my models at :
Thread: Paddle Steam Engine

Hello Jens
Thank you for your comment, that I'm sorry to say, I just discovered now.
I think you are right about the self starting issue, but I just give the shaft a little push, must think about this in my next design.

Thread: Paddle Steamer Engine
30/10/2010 21:26:10
Hi Neil
I have used mild steel and brass for the parts of my engine.
The steam valves is round slide valves, as I'm running the engine on air I have not been concerned aobut glands around the slide valve rods, the air will simply escape in front and back section of the slide valve rods.
I'm having some problem in the timing of the valves, so I'm having a minor break in the project, just to maintain a good spirit, for the moment I'm working on an "Air Brush Painter"

Thread: Denford CNC milling
26/07/2009 23:36:57
Hi Richmond
Thanks for the link.
I believe I will drop my plans on the Denfod machine as many indications point out that the Denford machines is not for individuals.
Thanks again to all, that has given me feedback on this issue
26/07/2009 16:05:30
Sorry for not replying before, but I have just been on an one week vacation in Germany, a great site at Willingen near Kassel.
I think I should contact Denford by mail.
Bob ! Do you remember the aprocimate price of their milling machine, maybe like the  2600 pro
Thank you for the answers until now.
18/07/2009 18:36:42
Hi Bob
Did you buy the machine for education use  - or as a private user ?
I'm living in Denmark, so it will be a little difficult to pick it up my self.
I could of course mail the company and ask, but would also try to hear other users experience with their machines

Hi to all
Just signed in today, at this very nicely build website.
Has been a subscriber to the MEW magazines, but found it hard to find the time to work with all the interresting projects,maybe I will join again later.
Well back to my question
Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain machines from Denford, as a private home shop engineer ?
Thank you in advance
