|Thread: A worrying development in the Covid-19 battleground|
Methinks being diabetic is not a good thing & quoting Ady 'In a herd of 6 billion mammals, many of whom are totally reliant upon science to keep them going, there are going to be an awful lot of opportunities', with age we will all at some time be in that position.
|Thread: Clarkson Mk2 Tool Grinder & Accs for Sale/ID of Accessories|
Are we not using the for sale section now?
|Thread: NEW SCAM|
That doesn't always work when you are dealing with the new NHS 'system' of telephone consultations.
|Thread: Whatever must IKB be thinking ?!|
P**s poor design I would guess but reading the media will not give you the facts, I like your joke about cast iron, it was a joke wasn't it?
|Thread: Disposing of Gas Cylinders?|
Jeff D is spot on.
|Thread: Shipping to the EU - beware!|
I'm buying more English, Australian & New Zealand wine.
Damm I just ordered something from Canada, I wonder what they will shaft me for?
|Thread: ER32 Collet?|
Autolock milling cutters are so last year, I used them when we had nothing else but it's now R8 or ER collets for me. For the lathe I use what is most appropriate, depends on the work but mainly 3 jaw or again ER collets, 4 jaw when necessary.
|Thread: MIlling cutter pulling out of collet|
They sound like untrained 'animals'
We need more details, btw milling cutters are in my experience never reground on the shank absolutely no need but hey there’s a first time for everything
|Thread: Magnetic swarf|
Not a problem
|Thread: Telephone/mobile scams|
First search I did came up with India first for telephone scams & Nigeria first for email scams, but that could be a lot of BS. I'll leave it at that
|Thread: New shaft in Oilite bushes?|
Word from the wise [me] just use unhardened steel, Silver, mild or some such & leave it soft, it will last many years. If you try to harden the shaft you are in for a world of pain, i.e. distortion & scaling. Let us know what you decide.
Put in Google images 'carbon steel temper colors', loads of information for you to peruse & make your choice. Shafts aren't normally though hardened but yellow to orange I would say.
I doubt dunking your shaft into a tin of Kasenit will achieve much case depth at all.When I did industrial case hardening the parts were soaked for many hours in carbon rich compound.
|Thread: Cutting Knurling tool.|
Another one https://thebloughs.net/series/cut-knurling-tool/, sorry it's not a clickable link.
As always Google is your friend. There will be many more out there
|Thread: Chinese Depth micrometer rods|
I don't understand the above statement, can you please explain. Thanks
|Thread: Importing a power table feed|
On Ebay if the price says £136 that is what you will pay, they can't go adding on 'extras' once you have hit the 'buy it now button'.
|Thread: B&D workmate|
My late father in laws workmate [late 70's era?] was built like a tank, very heavy. Mine is early 80's era, a lighter model but still well built & I wouldn't be without it!! The new ones look a bit flimsy so as usual built down to a price?
