Hopper, excellent video, got me wondering if I can adapt my slotting head for wood splitting!

Only one way to find out!

Thread: broken calipers
03/04/2019 15:13:18

Why not buy a pair of best quality Chinese callipers and use the spring from them?

Thread: What Did You Do Today 2019

Can you crimp or solder on about 1/2 of thin wall brass or copper tube to the end of the Bowden cable to stop the fraying?

Thread: Have your fathers habits rubbed off on you. Just for fun
30/03/2019 12:21:34

My father was also very domineering and opinionated, so was my mother, childhood was total s##t for me, one of twins but brother died at very young age. Ended up working in same factory as the old man but in different department and nobody would speak to me, month trial period was due to end any day so I went into office and told foreman to shove his job where sun don’t shine, his reply was that he was very sorry for way I had been treated but my old man was universally hated in the factory and they dreaded having another one like him, he said that now they knew I was different things would improve, I stayed another 3 years until made redundant,

Thread: Any Recent Progress in Induction Heating ?
27/03/2019 16:42:00

In my last employment, for an aerospace company we had about half a dozen induction heaters made by inductelec ltd, they replaced the old radynes that dated from the seventies. We had to use them for silver soldering stainless steel elbows and ferrules together to form the ends of aircraft ignition leads. We wound close fitting rings of easyflo no2 up to fit on the elbow, fluxed it all with easyflo stainless grade flux and heated it in a close fitting coil for about 15 seconds and that was it, job done, lovely penetration all through the joint, another job they were used for was melting the glass preforms used in the tips of aircraft igniters, this process took around three minutes in a jig which applied pressure to the components so that they were forced down into the semi molten glass. I used the induction heater and their silver solder to make up pipework for my loco and it made a great job of soldering on nipples but I would hesitate to use it on a boiler, the heat is far too intense and localised, but great for fitting bearings etc

Thread: Beware new engine project!
11/03/2019 20:09:03

RMA The original company were ok, trouble came when they went bust and were bought by this present lot who know nowt about model engineering, if I recall correctly the company that bought them out was a tow bar fitting business, they don’t have a clue about engineering, only thing they are any good at is charging top dollar. Apologies for my earlier post, experience should read expensive, I hate this predictive text!

They have got us all by the bol***ks, either we buy their very experience and/or incorrect castings or we go without. Trouble is that a lot of these castings are exclusive to one company, makes it impossible to go elsewhere.

Thread: Line boring question
08/03/2019 11:00:28

Would have thought 11-12 mm dia would be adequate over that length.

Thread: Precision division plates
06/03/2019 14:24:51

Mike Poole, stack the balls on top of each other and you have got the basis of the Microball height gauge, if you could fit 36 into a groove as you describe you would have a very accurate ten degrees between them.

I suppose if you can’t get a sunny day you could use the moon at night.

Thread: Bell making
23/02/2019 13:49:44

Ian SC how do we know the bell is destined for a cats collar? I have read every word of the previous posts and nowhere is a cat mentioned.

Thread: Pensions
21/02/2019 22:19:27

I can confirm that care homes are charging £900 + a WEEK, about fifty grand a year, mother in law is paying this for a room about the size of a prison cell in a care home in Salisbury.

Thread: Vertical Injectors
19/02/2019 09:49:22

Stewart, I for one would love to see an article on your injectors, yes lots of articles have been written about them, but mainly horizontal versions and not many of them work, don’t ask how I know! The only ones I have had success with are D.A.G. Browns, his horizontal ones are superb but his vertical design, although a lovely looking thing is in my opinion complicated to manufacture compared to your design.

Thread: Model trains stolen - Kent
17/02/2019 19:05:17

Got a tracker built in the bodywork of our caravan, supplied as standard by the manufacturers, only problem is the battery, only got three to four years life and then you have a useless tracker. I stamp my National Insurance number in a few places on locos etc, better than postcodes because number is yours until you snuff it

Are we to assume that as this competition is being staged at Doncaster there will be no Brooklands exhibition this year?

Thread: Quorn Castings

John Haine, can the Worden or Acute sharpen the side flutes on milling cutters?
