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.

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.

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+.

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.
