Thread: lathe tool cutting oils
22/08/2009 15:12:57
I'm using Trefolex applied with a brush, Also Neat oil, got from MJ engineering. But the cutting oil I would like give a try to is Rape Seed Oil, I have a pump up can, which was bought to apply Waxoyl to car chassis.etc. Which I will use to apply a mist, when turning. Also surprised no one mentioned using Lard.
Thread: Adjustable Dials for Feedscrews

Hi Robbo.
Thank you for the pointer, I have bookmarked this book, as one for my family to get me for Christmas. Now I have time, I am really enjoying working on the lathe. 
Love the look of the Diamond tool holder. Can't quite get my head around it's cost. Probably when I see one, I will realise why it is that amount.
Does anyone else get annoyed with the adverts flickering at the side. I know that they help in sponsoring  the site. etc.

Hello to Engineers.
Have just joined the site. As it will take a good while to get around all the parts. I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction, of some information, for making  adjustable Dials for the feedscrews on a Myford ML4. 
Like the look of the diamond tool holder. At first I thought that it was going to be a real Diamond holder. I have one that was used for giving a skim to Electric Motor Commutators.
Have always found it great in engineering, how different Continents can come up with a different solution to sort ways of doing a job. Bit like the first time I saw a Japanese Pull saw.
 Looking forward to finding more things to do with my lathe.
