|Thread: Take 1 1/2 hors of your life to watch this|
very nice but don't know which tape-measure they were using -
|Thread: Betelgeuse in Orion|
|Thread: Windows 7 support ends|
I had read somewhere that the reason people used 'that well-known auction site' and 'the big South American river' was a hangover from when some fora/forums banned mention of them. Goodness knows why but people have strange ideas from time to time.
|Thread: Why do I keep getting logged-off?|
Living in very rural France, every time there is a power failure or reset/maintenance activity on the network I will have to log-in again to all forums. This is because when re-connecting after a reset my PC will have gained a new IP address from the router/network,the forum only knew me from my previous IP address so insists I log-in again.
I had heard the rumour that Alan Turing was asked to update the forum software but was unable to assist, apparently being tied up with coding or some-such.
|Thread: Watch servicing|
Agreed, the only saving grace is on the Jacob's movement where the skeletonisation of the movement with delicate bridge-work is nice. Shame about the rest of it, even the naff hands.
|Thread: First mill|
Thanks Jason, comments taken on board and those blind holes will become through holes with the exit threads 'nadgered' to prevent stud passage. This will give me some flexibility in stopping/reversing.
Seeing JasonB's video above on tapping steel 12mm prompts me to enquire...I need to drill and tap 12mm blind in 30mm thick ally per Shaun O'Sullivan's bandsaw holding block (my clamping kit is 12mm).

|Thread: Amolco Mill|
Yes, MichaelG, I can confirm your comments. I was in Mole's emporium around that period and there was an AMOLCO mill attachment on display. My chum from the MES curbed my enthusiasm and talked me out of buying it but I did buy a Tripan 111 QCTP and several tool-holders on the recommendation of Bert? in the shop which together with a Myford Hoybide tip-holder and a Tripan parting tool have given good service since
|Thread: What Did You Do Today 2019|
qte It was quite exciting when that fell out of the bell on Monday......unqte
especially at the speed it must have been travelling at, going like the clappers, as they say.
|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread 2019|
Pero, what was there before was the 'close bracket' symbol. To avoid your grinning idiot it is necessary to put a space between the d of old and the 'close bracket' as is (....old )
|Thread: A reminder to take care with aerosols...|
^^Mmmmmm, parsnips, even though not roasted, 'tis the season for soups and gastric juices run wild, as do olfactory senses, and devil take the gas detector.
|Thread: centec 2a quill lock|
Suspect the Centec group has moved from Yahoo along with the Myfordlathes group, to groups.io due to the retreat to emails only function on Yahoo
p.p.s link for myford is 'Myfordlathes @ groups.io search for similar Centec link

I think we are all still stunned at your T-slot cutter.
|Thread: myford grey paint|
From previous discussions on this subject I noted this **LINK** ignore the TomSenior heading, it's Myford lathe grey
Oh, I don't know, MichaelG, mine is good at bridgework also
|Thread: Astro-skeleton clock project|
Long story short, an American, Mark Franks in Chicago, looked around for someone to design/build for him a complex ! skeleton astronomical clock and lighted on an accomplished Oz maker of repute - Buchanan - to do the job.
and the complete project http://www.my-time-machines.net/my_current_project3.htm
Nothing short of phenomenal

|Thread: Aircraft General Discussion|
I had to check to see that Martin C did not correspond with Martin Baker
and we occasionally get sonic bangs when the boys in blue from Mont-de-Marsan base get it just that bit wrong on low-level sorties..
|Thread: Royal Mail tracking|
If you have difficulty tracking a parcel and have the (13digit/char) tracking number, try 17track dot net.
|Thread: 'Bristol Handles'|
Perhaps when one has found and fitted the handles,
