Thread: Warco milling machines
06/08/2019 19:21:30

Manny, I started with a WM16 it gave me good service, I traded up to a VMC

as it was more to my needs plus I'd moved house and had a bigger

workshop. I also have a Warco WM250 lathe they both do all I ask of them.

Thread: Making from castings or scratch build.
24/07/2019 16:54:50

I'm currently building the Muncaster slipper head horizontal engine from scratch but with a piston valve instead of the slide valve. All parts have been machined from steel and cast bar rather than aluminium. The flywheel is a 5'' cast iron trolley wheel.

Quite right Dusty, virtually all power tools can be dangerous without common sense.

Mick, personally I would have thought that a plug tap although not ideal should be ok

if you are careful.

Thread: Small head metric hexagon bolts and nuts
24/04/2019 18:25:01

Thanks Brian, I did have a look at their website but couldn't see any.

I have heard about the German company but like you I can't remember the name.

I've tried ebay and EKP but no joy, EKP will make them but need to buy 1000+.

Hello all, is there anywhere that sells smaller than standard head metric bolts and nuts in m5 m4 & m3 etc . I know that I can get one size smaller ba ones but I should like scale sized metric ones.

Started to tidy up and rearrange the workshop with the idea of making a bit more room.... not getting on very well. I had a pile of stuff that I decided I was going to take to the tip, pile got smaller!

I've had good results with the Tee shaped HSS cobalt parting blades. Used them on stainless, ally, mild steel abd brass, easy to resharpen and cheaper than carbide tips.
