|Thread: Cast Iron C section|
Looks horribly like a section used on double / triple footway covers to bridge the gap between lids. I still have a little.
|Thread: Graham Meek Myford Super 7 Screw Cutting Clutch|
Andrew you can do it without grinding just be very careful and get a good surface finish finally finishing with polishing paper. Mine has been running for 6 or seven years now with no trouble except changing the bronze idlers for sheet tufnol ones. Oh and my super 7 has a dro fitted.
|Thread: Vacuum Limiting Valve|
Some nice images on google and cutaways looks like prv in reverse
Sorry Harry but it’s a sign of the times you do have a choice of course
|Thread: M E Beam engine|
Heat your chilled Castings to red heat and hold for several mins then wrap in insulation to slow the cooling process.should be ok after that.
|Thread: New highway code rule.|
Most people have come to accept that as the norm, I for one don’t.
|Thread: Brass casting - who to contact?|
Try your local model engineering club ,they may have a contact. On the other hand you could ask Noel!!
|Thread: The southern federation|
I thought that the idea was to have one organisation doing things once not two organisations doing things twice . And a much more sensible idea as filling posts in these organisations seems to be getting more difficult.
Surely it’s not the southern fed anymore but the federation of model engineers
|Thread: solid carbide spade? bit for drilling spring steel saw blade|
3/16 ball ended carbide mill for me

|Thread: Parts storage|
Spray with corrosion inhibitor (not wd40)and seal in polythene bags.
|Thread: 'Vision aid magnifying glasses', any good?|
I used to use Binomags for years I think they were ex WD and really good but had a set of optivisors bought me (lucky me) with two sets of lenses and they are fantastic. Beautifully clear and loads of room for your specs under them.
|Thread: Tangential tool sharpening|
I’d have to go with Andy G don’t think it’s likely to be CZ121. You can get curls with some tools on CZ120.
|Thread: What Did you do Today 2022|
|Thread: A Tale of Two Indicators|
sorry Clive but clockmaker fits fall way short of good engineering and toolmaker fits. i say this from the viewpoint of having made two coaxial finders and the fit of the parts has to be a minimum of reamed holes and polished shafts? plungers. short article for MEW awaiting printing.
|Thread: Ba 2 castellated locking nut|
by the time you have done all the searching and paying and waiting they would be fitted and forgotten about oh and don't forget about the satisfaction value!.
|Thread: Model Engineering Website|
no problem here, using Mac or Ipad
|Thread: shaper cross feed|
I must admit that my clapperbox is vertical unless being used in the vertical mode as recommended in Shaper Operations.
Rob can you explain your reasoning behind this because if using a round nosed tool in both directions it means you have to change the auto feed adjuster to the opposite side of the actuating shaft every time you change direction. On the other hand if it was opposite to our thinking the backstroke would not be dragging on uncut material. Just a thought!
|Thread: Steam raising blower|
Performance of your fans can vary a huge amount , motor revs / fan efficiency / fan diameter. My blower uses a fan from a Fokker airoplane fan oven at about 4 plus inches and is extremely efficient.
