Thread: Help buying multifunction Compound 2 Axis 4 Ways Working milling table
05/02/2022 19:16:28

As Andrew said earlier the cart is before the horse,we need to know what sized holes and to what tolerance the OP intends doing, let’s all hope he can share the information with us all so we can get a clearer picture of what he is trying to accomplish.

Thread: My 80th birthday present from Boris.
05/02/2022 10:13:09

I will just be grateful to get to 80 regardless of the 25p a week.

Thread: four way toolpost with ratchet
27/01/2022 17:06:39

+1 for it being a Myford item.

Thread: Making a series of small aluminium cones
26/01/2022 17:39:25

Maybe I am just thick but I cannot see an overall length, taper is 3.5mm but how long is parallel 1.8 dia length? Also how deep is the hole ?

Thread: JB cutting tools .com
26/01/2022 14:45:35

I wanted some tips just before Christmas, went to my favourites to find their site and just got a message saying closed until the spring, the site has been taken down, no idea what is going on, just have to wait for spring to come and see if they return.

Thread: Britain Capstan Lathe
25/01/2022 20:25:17

Sorry Andrew I cannot help with any dimensions as my machine is the 1 1/4 capacity.

25/01/2022 18:51:52

Andrew which size Britan do you have, they made 3/4 and 1 1/4 capacity machines.

Thread: Slitting saws on Myford lathe
25/01/2022 16:13:09

In over 50 years on the tools I cannot remember a slitting saw that ran true, they always seem to cut for part of a revolution, if you push them hard enough so they cut continuously they have a nasty habit of going Bang!

Thread: Is it possible to by "100% non-stick" spatulas for spreading glue? (ideally made from teflon/FEP)

I save the wooden stirrers from Costa coffee for mixing epoxy adhesives. The small tubs of milk supplied with a cup of tea in some cafes I also take home and wash. These make excellent pots for mixing small quantities of Epoxy adhesive.


Great idea using the small milk tubs, I will remember that. I also use the wooden stirrers, they make great lagging strips for small stationary engines.

Really sharp HSS, drop the speed and increase the feed.

Thread: DIY tool holder for inserts
23/01/2022 21:02:55

Surely the screw has got to be slightly biased towards the shoulders, most probably only about five thou though.

Thread: Ffestiniog locos
23/01/2022 09:44:58

The only one I know of is George, drawings by Don Young and written up in his magazine LLAS. Castings seem to only be supplied by Reeves. Never seen a completed one and if I remember correctly the foundation ring becomes part of the frame assembly.

Thread: How is it made - concave jeweler's burr
22/01/2022 22:13:24

Most probably stamped out and hardened, being jewellery related they are only going to be used on silver and gold, not hardened tool steel.

Thread: J&S 540 Hydraulics
22/01/2022 17:20:30

I think we used Tellus22 in ours, but it was a long time ago, the only thing that makes me sure is that I still have gallons of the oil in the back of the workshop.

Thread: 'Vision aid magnifying glasses', any good?
19/01/2022 14:54:12

I have experience of Lightcraft brand magnifier which has a headband, led light and comes with five lenses. I find my set invaluable and have recently purchased a set for my wife to help her see her cross stitch and also a set for my daughter who uses them for her jewellery making, i believe they are on offer at Axminster tools at the moment.

Thread: Can you recommend a "medium-speed" epoxy adhesive? (e.g. "30 minute" or "60 minute")
18/01/2022 18:52:12

Francis I also think it strains the ethos of the forum especially when a particular person asks multiple questions, at present we are asked about glue and another post is about cutting with an angle grinder along with previous posts about angles on bits of metal. I will help anyone if I can but I think the posters constant questions and his attitude is extracting the urine. I do not feel that this is what the forum is for, there are many professionals who will help him with his product development, he will of course have to pay but he can get his VAT back.

I think you are missing a great opportunity here Jason, the latest engine being machined, previous ones on show and of course the BOOK, with all the drawings inside plus of course the CD in the back with all the programs on, just ready to load into your machine at home and cut metal, you could also do metal packs for each engine, 😄😄😄

18/01/2022 09:07:06

Jason why don’t you take your mill along and show us all how it’s done, you could also have a nice display of the engines you have made using the cnc, 👍

Thread: Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition 2022
11/01/2022 16:57:18

Certainly will be going, almost forgotten what exhibitions are.

Thread: Steam raising blower
09/01/2022 22:18:39

Bazyle interesting what you say about the blowers, mine is marginal on 12v but a bit over the top on 24v, I thought it was just me being hopeless at lighting a fire. I am one of the only ones to use electric blowers in our club, everyone seems to prefer compressed air, all the steaming bays are plumbed in to a compressor in the workshop.
