|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
Caught this on BBC news today and wondered if Neil might be interested in 3D printing a replacement for his metal garden shed ?
To XD +1 more, although I shudder to think how you can so confidently make that comparison ?
|Thread: What did you do Today 2018|
All going up in May though BobH, 80 tested items up to 136 items. Just as well had both of mine done !
|Thread: Dismantling an Elliott Progress drill|
Sunny, I have a similar but older and heavier Progress, ten yrs ago it was as much as two of us could manage to even lift the separated head unit although, like your pics we didn't think of removing the motor first...
|Thread: Is society becoming more stupid|
SoD Dave, if you are going to include " Saggar Makers " you ought to have included "Bottom Knockers" too !
|Thread: Garage Workshop Subsidence|
There are times when any attempt at rationalisation is futile, some of those OT moments can be educational though.
|Thread: Amolco milling attachment|
I was dissuaded by my chum "it's a compromise" from buying one at Mole's shop in Watford in the late '60s/early '70s but did fall for a nice Tripan QCTP and some toolholders which are still doing good service.
|Thread: Finding authors in these postings|
Michael, just as an external comparator, your link works for me in SW France, Win7/IE11.
Gosh, I never realised there were so many Brians on here.
|Thread: Please help with fitting a Myford Tri Leva|
You are welcome, CC_B, I get a lot from this forum, happy to be able to give a little back.
Just done a rough measure, most with digi caliper, couple with 6in rule.
o/a length 73mm, width 19mm, 2.2mm thick material, adj slot 24mm long starting 6.8mm from L/H end, hole at R/H end about 10mm from end (best guess I could get with a slim ruler and MK1 eyeball )
|Thread: Du Bousquet's "Les Grands Chocolats" in 'Technology sans frontieres'|
"Nord" in this case is the name of the railway company and would probably be quoted in English, not translated, just as "Great Western" would be quoted as such in France and not receive a French translation.
p.s SoD great picture
|Thread: Deciding on material to buy and being economical|
Araldite mixed up in those plastic lids that were kept from espresso powder, etc cans.
|Thread: Watch powered by body heat|
Have had its Canadian twin (exact lookalike) running since 2002, runs very reliably on wood-burner with only a dust-off of the top fins each season. It has a flat spring under the base to tilt the base up off the stove-top when temp gets up around 450-500C. The fan gets on a fair old whizz from 250C onwards.
|Thread: Anodising Questions|
Neil, if home -anodising, check with Dean Clarke 2 how he does his V4/V8/V12 aero engine anodising.
|Thread: B C wooden lampholder adaptor|
Home delivery ? !!! As a 6 or 7yr old youngster in Liverpool I had to carry my nan's 2accumulators to the chemists for recharging and returning with the two pre-charged exchange units. At least they had bored wooden sleeves on the wire handles so one could 'swing' them.

|Thread: G. Boley watchmaker lathe|
Was familiar with monocular and binocular but when I followed Thor's link was surprised to see trinocular microscopes. Any concerns about the strange physiognomy of some microscope users were allayed when Google informed me that the third 'ocular' was for camera usage.
|Thread: battery problems|
Gordon, if your little tube is 2ml, mine has lasted three years.
Haven't used Deoxit D5 for contact cleaning but have used Deoxit Gold on the battery poles and the pos and neg contacts in my mechanical vaporisers with great success for several years
|Thread: New Member|
David, in that youtube clip of the foundry tour, which was interesting, was the tour guide Steve 'whatshisname' from This Old House back in the day ?
|Thread: Looking for LED Lamp|
Yes, I have one sitting on top of the monobloc A/C unit in the bedroom. Since my wife habitually retires before me and we live in the dark dark countryside, it gives just enough (green) glow to serve as a navigation beacon.
