|Thread: Silver booty|
|Thread: Apparantly I'm a spammer!|
There's a bit of a ring here.
|Thread: Air casters|
Circlip, I think your solution would not be an option. John wants his wife to be able easily to move the printing press away from the wall on occasions when she needs to use it. A pallet truck perhaps would not be acceptable in her workplace/studio.
To make a positive suggestion how about half a dozen or eight steel plates fixed (glued?) on the base, each with an escape hole(s) below and a piped entry on the side. All six to be connected together and fed from a remote compressor. Fairly easy to achieve but may still be too expensive.
I believe that expense was among Sir Christopher Cockerell's problems

|Thread: Precision layout & machining?|
If you are really going for gold then may I suggest "Accurate Tool Work" by C.L. Goodrich & F.A. Stanley.
Original copyright by Hill publishing Company 1908, and reprinted 1988 by Lindsay Publications Inc
Old it may be, but for layout it does tell the whole story. An interesting read for anyone interested in engineering.
|Thread: updating profile email address|
You're 'avin a larf! This gets more complicated by the moment.
My saved log ins are in the wood shed.
I am suffering exactly the same problem as Jason. I was forced to change my provider after the demise of Demon email, and advised the IT lady accordingly. It now seems that the details have been changed as I get communications like the MEW advisory on Monday. However I am unable to log on to this forum to post without going through the rigmarole of typing in new address and then requesting new password.
Mystic Meg - if it be she - mentioned that I would have difficulty like this, when she responded to my original email.
Perhaps the matter could be taken a little more seriously by those who know about these things.
|Thread: Catering at shows|
After past experience of Brooklands catering I was sceptical of the prospects at MEX. In the event we had very good cottage pie served on a warm plate, and found a table at which to eat it. Well done Neil and associates, and I take back what I said.
|Thread: MEX Photos for those that stayed home|
Would it be possible to have a listing of the awards winners please?
|Thread: Its a what ???????|
That's a clever bit of moderating
|Thread: Setting Up a Workshop Special|
'Taming of the Screw' ??
Then there is that book on coil spring manufacture called 'Gone with the Wind'.

|Thread: Polishing Brass - or where to get P5000 paper|
Good old fashioned newspaper (newsprint) works pretty well. Just a drop of Brasso for lubricant.
|Thread: GUY MARTIN|
Apart from the mechanicals, about which there seems some debate, Guy Martin was pretty good too.
Brave but mad !
|Thread: Grinding wheel ..balancing hole?|
I still think there is evidence of a former life and that this makes this wheel a very suspect object. See 32 - 12 and some other characters less distinct on a lower label.
Could it be that Chronos are selling New Old stock I wonder?
In passing - I could not find any reference to this type of wheel on their site but this may be that I looked in the wrong place.

|Thread: Useless light bulbs.|
Possibly, Michael, because the EU said no more 'old fashioned' light bulbs???
|Thread: OT Analogue tachographs (Kienzle?)|
He would probably say that you have a seriously bad case of clutch slip.
|Thread: Internal Combustion Engine Supercharger|
Have a look at www.austinsevenfriends.com and go to the Forum. There is a pretty good index and you will probably find some helpful information there. Several guys have been down this path previously. Also, if you are an Austin Seven buff then you should probably be aware of this very friendly domain in any case.
|Thread: Gone but not forgotten|
Not actually on a wall, but going back to my youth the sign on the back of Smith's Crisps delivery vans used to confuse me. It read "We wish to extend our courtesy to the road. Please sound your horn." It meant of course that it drew the drivers attention to the fact that you were behind and might wish to overtake. (Mirrors were not what they are today!) I always thought the van would stop and sell you a bag of crisps.
