Thread: ER-25 Chuck THD Engagement
20/03/2017 19:58:57

Thanks for the link JasonB. am waiting for my 1st ER25 R8 collet chuck/collets to arrive. Is the 'collet wrench' the same as the nut-c-spanner or have I missed something ?


Thread: Help with ultrasonic cleaner
15/03/2017 21:18:31

"we had a small shop with a bank of 6 in there as I remember they were filled with 'Tric' they were around 3ft x 3ft and around 4ft deep,"

My first job after school was as Trainee Instrument maker, the plating shop had a degreasing tank 4x3ft x 3ft deep that wasn't ultrasonic but 'Tric' vapourised by heating coils. It was run by Charlie, a wizened chap in black waistcoat, flat cap and a lit roll-up always hanging from the corner of his mouth. He would stick his hands and head, roll-up, cap and all, in the tank to hang/remove the wire baskets of components. Tried it myself once and skin on hands came out with a chalky white appearance after not long in the vapour. Looking back now I reckon 'old Charlie' was probably only about 40yrs old....but his flat cap was always immaculate.

John, re having to keep logging-in, I'm an ex-lurker and only a newbie to posting and always having to log-in was a pain. Found that when I click 'log-in' I am only offered e-mail and password options. If I ignore that and click log-in a second time I get those two options again but also a small 'remember me' box which when ticked allows me to re-connect as 'already logged-in'. When logged-in the original log-in page shows again, ignore that and click 'more latest posts'. Hope I understood the problem correctly and HTH.

Russell, better make that a second mill in one and waiting for the other.

You and Bazyle make good points but I'm 73 next month and what with all the folks who have popped their clogs this last year I have come to the realisation that time is like a toilet roll - the closer one gets to the end, the faster it runs out. Having always wanted one I have decided to go for it, get myself a mill and buy things that I would previously have spent time making !

Will have the pallet delivered - eventually - and dropped off in the garage and chain hoist it up on a beam onto a rolling platform and up two steps into the workshop where I have fitted two thick-walled scaffold tubes across two more beams and chain hoist it up onto the stand.


Thread: How to turn a matching pair of handles

Good info from Finland - reinforces what I remember seeing a few years ago during the MRSA / C.diff 'epidemic' in NHS hospitals; that hospitals were trialling replacing S/S work surfaces with copper as an antibacterial measure.

Thanks all for the welcome - nice one JS, that explains it.

I would have built it Bazyle but hope to be moving in future so prefer a portable version this time round.

Not really mumble and groan but.....

Hi I'm DaveD and I've been finally nudged out of lurkerdom by another member not only ordering - but actually receiving a WM18.

It appears that this member has snagged the last WM18 stand this side of the China Sea so I shall have to wait for the ship to come in !

Congrats Petro1head, it looks even more impressive unpacked than it does on their website. Am enjoying the write-up and the photos, good job.

p.s what did you use to clean the protective coating off the table ?

p.p.s how many hours are there in JasonB's day ?
