|Thread: Threading 1/8 stainless steel|
1 skimmed 5 thou of diameter
2 Bought an MT adaptor at Doncaster and mounted Jacobs chuck in head stock
3 Cut thread
The die is mounted in a die holder in the tail stock.
plan of attack is,
clean with acetone
open die fully
use aluminium block
plenty of Rocol
I'll try the collet
I'm trying to cut a 5BA thread on 1/8" stainless steel rod held in the 3jaw lathe chuck. The die starts to cut then the rod slips in the chuck marking the rod. Would I be better off using a 1/8 c0llet chuck.
|Thread: Vickers Bl 8 inch Howitzer cannon of 1917|
Looking at the spokes being milled took me back to my apprenticeship and milling steel samples ready for tensile testing. It was the dread of every apprentice.
|Thread: Coming up for auction|
Just need a few more pennies
|Thread: Uncomplicated Steam Boiler for first wobbler please|
If you are unsure of your silver soldering capabilities why not buy a cheap Mamod system from flea bay or your local auction house. Don't forget to pressure test the boiler though.
|Thread: Stuart Beam Engine|
Thanks Jason, I should have paid more attention to the drawing
On the Stuart beam engine how deep does the recess on the top of the column need to be to take the entablature arms.
|Thread: Alibre link|
When the alibre forum started I saw a link that took you to a 200 odd page instruction of drawing two flywheels connected by a universal joint. I can't find the link, can someone point me in the right direction.
|Thread: Alibre atom|
Just bought MEW to get the Alibre Atom only to find it doesn't run on a mac. Bummer, any chance of a refund.

|Thread: Given the Elbow|
It was a Stewart Hart design published in ME August-September 2011
Looking at the link above it looks very similar.

100 mm flywheel, not bad for a conquest super (now superior) with an 80 mm chuck.
All that's left to do is to get it running.
|Thread: Machining gun metal|
When machining gun metal should it treated the same as brass and cut at a high speed

Careful what you say or every one will turn up on Friday
Many moons ago ME reprinted LBSC's article on building Ayesha. As Curly designed many loco's how about another reprint of his articles .
|Thread: Steam chest design.|
The original had two valve chests with separate valve rods per side run off two inboard mounted eccentrics.
