Before you go anywhere near a lathe with this gear , suggest you undertake a spark test on it first in order to give you some indication of workability . Trevor

Thread: Multimeter recommendations
12/09/2021 21:39:38

As far as l am concerned , l am with RA all the way on this one . Regulations , and their literal interpretation , whether simply in the form of a code of practice or statutory , exist not to keep someone in a job but because at some point in the past someone has been hurt or even killed , and you ignore them at your , or worse someonelses peril .

In the event of an untoward occurrence , and you're in front of the man with the silly wig on , or the men from the ministry ( HSE ) and the inevitable question is asked " Do you have a code of practice , and have you followed it ?" you'd better have a bullet proof excuse if your answer is likely to be "no" . BEEN THERE , DONE IT , and it's not a comfortable place to be even when your answer has been " yes".

So well done RA for giving the benefit of your experience and advice so freely and without personal preduice , which with luck will help someone being injured or killed .

On a more specific aspect , is the CE mark shown in the supplied pictures and actual CE mark ( indicating compliance to known standards) or , as been noted in the past simply Chinese Export which just happens to be in the same type face as the genuine CE mark ?

Trevor .

Thread: Coolant pump - how to slow flow rate?
30/08/2021 09:08:22

Grotto , Assuming you're using a water-based soluble oil solution , my suggestion would be to simply switch to using cutting oil instead . As well as other benefits , the greater density slows the flow rate considerably. Trevor.
