|Thread: self catering v independent|
I've been turning (conquest super) some 1/2" square MS. down to 7/16" Dia. Each cut was 0.010 over a length of 2", supported by a centre in the tail stock and held in a 4 jaw self entering chuck. The intermittent cutting caused the chuck to open slightly and the job to come loose. Would I have been better using a 4 jaw independent chuck.

|Thread: Boring head or fly cutter|
The machine is a Warco WM14 cutting mild steel 2" wide by 4" long

The hammer in the background is a planishing hammer. I can remember using one in the school metal work class to decorate a copper serviette ring.

|Thread: Potty:- Helping Dad Grasshopper Engine|
Not built the grasshopper yet been busy building the beam engine. Grasshopper is on my to do list.
If anyone has a mini lathe ie. Chester Conquest Super you will have to use a flywheel of 7" Dia. or less. The flywheel for the Stuart Beam Engine should be a suitable substitute .

We've probably all had it happen at some time or other and that is have a drill run off centre when drilling brass. but why does it happen in brass and not in mild steel.
