|Thread: Warco milling machines|
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: Pendulum enquiry|
Don't suppose that it could be based on a metronome?
|Thread: Making from castings or scratch build.|
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.
|Thread: Angle grinders - Dangerous or not|
Quite right Dusty, virtually all power tools can be dangerous without common sense.
|Thread: Tapping a thread|
Mick, personally I would have thought that a plug tap although not ideal should be ok
if you are careful.
|Thread: Hemswell Cliff, Lincs|
Adrian, every time I've been there's been nowt there.

|Thread: Small head metric hexagon bolts and nuts|
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+.
Regards Mark P.
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.
Regards Mark P.
