|Thread: Ornamental Turning|
There is a Society of Ornamental Turners who have a stand at some ME Exhibitions.
Work seems to go from jewellery size up to large objects and watching the machinery is fascinating especially as some of it looks very old.
I have put a link to the SOT Website here as it might have information on modding lathes:-

The Vulcans Vulcanised them then they were called tyres.

Wikipedia gives this:-
I like that explanation.
My own take on it would be ouch followed by a swear word when they snap and get me!

|Thread: What Did You Do Today 2019|
Ouch really sorry to hear it she will take a long time to get over that!
If you are any where near a Timpson store take the damaged phone in to them for an estimate I found .surprisingly low Repair costs.
I have no connection to them other than being a satisfied customer and many other repairers are available.

|Thread: Indoor R/C Flight & a whole lot more|
Love watching this and it’s nice too see Concord flying again, just as an aside does anyone know how the two flying locomotives work.
Thanks for linking to that great display Jason.
There is usually a good indoor flying display in the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Ally Pally.
Not on the same scale as the one Jason linked to but still good fun to watch (and yes it is behind netting).

|Thread: new computer|
Seemed to be a good range of non gaming type desktops with various spec’s on the Dell website when I was looking last week.
I have no connection with the company but I used to run a Dell desktop myself when I was working for a living no problems with it.

I have received an email from Gateros Plating about an Anodising Workshop on the 18 October.
It is located in the Lincoln area (which I am totally unfamiliar with).
As Anodising seems to be a frequent subject on here I thought it might be of interest to some.
Here is a link to the information supplied:-
|Thread: ebay fun today ?|
That should have upped the hit rate.
|Thread: Ultrasonic toothbrushes|
How the other half lives eh😉.
Can’t advise on Ultrasonics but when we had a dog manual toothbrushes were used which looked very similar to ones for humans but were more expensive being pet specials.
We also used beef flavoured toothpaste specifically for dogs which she loved so teeth cleaning time was (relatively) easy.

To quote a very old saying “never a borrower or a lender be”.
I made the mistake of being the second one and losing gear a few times never again (I don’t borrow things either).

|Thread: What 3 Words|
Thank you 34046 and Michael. Interesting idea might help find parcels delivered to somewhere underneath my garden hedge!
What is this about please?
|Thread: Another scam|
Another TVP video, actor again but based on true cases.
|Thread: Where do I buy these, I've looked every where.|
I have just done quick search for that shop and initial results seem to have little to do with engineering, Perhaps you should have put a link in?

Yes I remember your post was just seconds before mine and thought you must have typed faster than me.
