|Thread: Model Engineering website DVD|
DOH! I didn't scroll down far enough. Thanks.
How do you read the DVD's of archived material from Model Engineering Website? I can't see any html files in file explorer.
|Thread: new computer|
Just built my own computer. 3hrs work and works well. See Cary Holtzmann on Y tube for build examples.
|Thread: Engineers blue alternatives|
The Prussian blue etching ink I got is manufactured by Cranfield and is oil based but washable with water. If you look at Tom Lipton's site on You tube he discusses the use of these type of spotting media.
I got my roller and water based colour from Amazon.

|Thread: Mitsubishi D720 Inverter Problem|
That's solved it. Swopped the jumper, which strained my ageing eyesight, and the remote now functions correctly. Many thanks.
I have set the control to remote and the potentiometer will control the speed but forward and reverse don't work.
I have a used Mitsubishi D720 inverter which is OK when operated from the front panel. With a remote control pad connected only the potentiometer works, the forward, reverse and jog functions are dead. I presume that some of my parameter settings are wrong. Can anyone help?

|Thread: Pickling with Sulphuric|
Oleum is sulphuric acid with added sulphur trioxide.
|Thread: Windows 10 forced upgrade|
Here in sunny Bracknell the town was wired for cable TV back in the 1970's and operated by NTL. This was taken over by Virgin who run the fibre to cabinet. Interestingly when I moved here you wern't allowed to erect a TV aerial.
|Thread: Single phase reverse electrical genious required|
Presumably this motor is off a circular saw which only needs to run in one direction so may well be designed to be irreversible.
|Thread: Sieg SX2P|
I have one of these milling machines and generally find it satisfactory for milling mild steel. The biggest drawback in my opinion is the Z feed via a rack and pinion. With hindsight I would have bought one of the slightly larger mills with a screw fed Z axis. Looking at the AML16LV at £765.
|Thread: Oil gun|
Blackgates sell them.
|Thread: An Application to create dividing head tables|
Scanned with AVG and Malawares; all clear.
