05edd035-a5e7-47df-abd1-c0d861eb4653.jpegNot a good start put hand in drawer and caught it on broken piece of machine Hacksaw blade so that gave me the job for the day turning offending item into two parting blades which is why I got it in the first place(15 years go!). All worked out quite well with angles along blade length ground on the stent.02649069-199a-4205-b726-c4115fe6b2d5.jpeg

Sorry but mine doesn’t WHIP ROUND it disengages itself as soon as you take you hand off

You may think it’s the last thing you would do but just look at you tube videos and see how many people have got bits of fingers missing and just recently someone on here mentioned some one injuring themselves. So please don’t be that person who would never make that mistake.

Thread: thresher belts
23/02/2021 22:50:35

I used to own a velo and it had flat belt drive for the dynamo, I had it made in Norwich ( local to me ) by a transmission company . It was scarfed and vulcanised and I ran the bike for years with no trouble. The material was green on the outside and black inside. Haley’s might be a good place to start.

Just had a parcel delivered by Hermes from Kilmarnock. 23 days can you beat that!

Thread: ML7 Hand Crank / Wheel?
23/02/2021 22:27:10

My that’s a fair old thing to get your hand caught in if the lathe is turned on. Why not have a single handled version that can idle so accidents can’t happen.

Thread: Fuel Resistant Filament

The float in my Indian is of rhoacell type material and has been in rhe carb for 8 years now. It was 3d machined and cost me the princely sum of about £30, absolute bargain!!

A lot of the bike boys still use R as it has this phenomenal shear strength.

Thread: Could I try an IC engine?
15/02/2021 13:30:22

Sorry not kept up with the thread but the Westbury jig is in ME 12th July 1962 pages 56/7, if you need copies I will scan and send plus a photo of my jig. Note this is for cam flanks.

Thread: Roller skate bearings.
14/02/2021 22:49:36

Surely ceramic ball races were originally introduced for gas turbines as the hey coped with the dirty atmosphere that the engine breathed. Ceramic balls crush the foreign bodies where steel balls skid.

Thread: Vfd advice please

The traverse direction dictates whether the table moves on the cut or return stroke!

Try the Westbury Jig. It is lathe orientated.

Thread: What Did You Do Today 2021
12/02/2021 22:44:36

gun black is very fussy about cleanliness, I got better results with a hot soda bath first ( do not touch the parts with your hands). But nothing beats the black it kit.
