Thread: Clean hands?
01/06/2018 20:26:46

Following recommendations on a previous hand-cleaning thread, I invested in some "rath's Pr88" .A little on the spendy side but works very well, it's a thickened mousse-like texture, rubbed into the hands and rinsed/brushed off.
Thanks to whoever recommended it, I'll add my vote also.

Tasted just like horrible oily paint to me... devil

Ooo a Comet! //

Oooh a Comet - I also thought - until realising it was definitely not the same Comet as the James 98cc Comet I learned to ride on at age 14 !

Inspired by another thread, I got one of these 133 mm backplate castings from RDG...


My mind must have been wandering because I immediately jumped to the (wrong) conclusion and wondered how you were going to cut the 133 teeth on that.....hmmm

Thread: Myford Lathe Tool Inserts
29/04/2018 21:31:07

Found then, surprisingly - the holder is marked "Myford...MUR...12R...90" and the tips box is marked
Hoybide P01R CW/M30. A google search found only the L/H version from

Might be worthwhile calling Jurassic Tools and using the tip reference from my box.
I tried - and failed - to make it a Link

29/04/2018 20:11:10

Barnabas, I have the same Myford holder/tips bought from Moles of Watford some forty-odd yrs ago and find they work well. I bought spare tips from Jurassic Tools online. Will try to locate the spare tips box shortly to find a tip number (in process of preparing to move house).

Thread: Plastic Ban

Very interesting research, Michael, thank you for the link.

if they can jump to up-scaling the processes of producing/recycling then any cost differentials could be overcome by legislating.

Thread: ME production problems, delivery problems or Canada post?
22/04/2018 20:27:07

Canada post problems are not restricted to magazines. I use a vaping supplies company in HongKong and their customer forum has a separate sub-forum for Canadian vapers to save filling out the main forum with delivery queries/complaints. Seems to have one common factor there. (even allowing for any extra delays with Canadian Customs)

In the house where I first stayed in Scotland I was told that there was a thing called a "lade" at the end of the garden. I was a bit disappointed to discover it was just a mill stream.

Edited By Mike on 18/04/2018 15:53:46

Mike, that lade isn't that far off a mill leat.

Back in the early '70s one of our club members had a Vincent and I used to drool over it.
Fast forward a couple of weeks and he turned up on a Honda CB400 ?
When I asked him what happened to the Vincent he replied that with an electric start he could spend more time enjoying riding it than starting it.

Thread: Warco WM250 Lathe and Warco WM18 Milling machine (Advice please)
10/04/2018 20:22:32

I ordered a WM18 from Warco last year and they used Kuehne & Nagel to deliver (most of the way) then a local delivery firm for the last rural section. They charged what I thought was a reasonable GBP132 to S.W France roughly between Bordeaux and Toulouse. That was for WM18-stand-vice-lube-cutting oil etc.
All arrived in good order. I thought that wasn't too bad when even a small package from Arc costs GBP15.50p and from M-DRO GBP9 via Royal Mail International.

False status.

Indeed, following on from Weiinstock, in the 70's I worked a part-time (off-shift) car parking job at Heathrow. One day a pair of Fiat 500's arrived and I took Lord and Lady Rothschild across to Terminal 3 in the minibus.
Made a change from the Ferrari's and Astons I suppose.

I'm no war baby (baby boomer and proud!), but I have a soft spot for 'clinic orange' and rose-hip syrup.


I just qualify as war baby and also remember fondly the orange juice but unfortunately it was usually accompanied by cod liver oil in a similar glass bottle.

You must use a damn big hammer to make a mark with a 50mm punch

No hammers Duncan. it's all down to "witchcraft" I believe.

Clock B has dural wheels and steel lantern pinions with the pins on small ball races. By the look of the photos even the escapement wheel is dural - but with a grasshopper escapement there isn't the same wear issue.

Many thanks for that link John, it led to an interesting diversion through Frodsham's site.
Now, if I only could win a lottery......

I had missed that Michael, so thanks for that link. He also liked the Python Galaxy song -

and always with that cheeky smile. Much missed.
