|Thread: Valve gear - looking for a good introduction|
Clive,if you are interested, I have a second-hand ex-library copy of Model Locomotive Valve Gears by
Martin Evans available for sale for which I am looking for £10 + p&p at cost.
It is in good general condition. Pics and contact details can be supplied if required.
|Thread: New Machining In The Home Workshop Special|
|Yesterday I also received a similar email from MHS within a few hours of ordering my copy, which surprised me somewhat considering the publication date. Another instance of MHS outstanding efficiency, or maybe crossed wires somewhere ?|
|Thread: Harrogate show|
I believe the company was from York, and in front of either the South Road Steam or Maxitrack stand.Maybe either of these companies could help, or maybe the show organiser, Lou Rex, who may have listed them in the show guide ? Feel sure I collected a card from their stand, buy afraid I cannot find it at the moment. Ah, the pleasures of getting old!!
|Thread: How to drill hardened and ground steel|
John, Have just read your entry and the subsequent notes with interest. Have you considered whether it would it not be better to produce a new shouldered post threaded to suit the top slide and necked down to suit your new QC tool post ? If, for whatever reason you are unable to do this, how much is a new post from Myford, which you could subsequently turn down to suit ?
|Thread: Marking out fluid|
Eric, if you feel it would be of assisstance, I am prepared to obtain a small container to supply you with maybe 50mL of marking out fluid, and I would be able to deliver it to you at Harrogate on Sunday if that is acceptable.
