Clive Had both mine done two years ago one each side of Christmas. Best thing that ever happened. you don't realise how bad your vision is or how dull the colours are. The operation is completely painless. and intriguing.
When you have the second eye done, the main difference is that you will know what's going to happen .
As with Michael. If you wish to discus further please PM or email me
|Thread: Boring problem|
Andrew Wind your boring tool in slightly before you retract. This will remove any spring in the tool or twist in the toolholder or saddle.
|Thread: Ultrasonic Cleaner|
I usually put a squirt of washing up liquid in the water in the tank and vinegar in the beaker. depends what you are cleaning I suppose
|Thread: Cutting brass with saw questions|
Chris You are using CZ120 engraving brass I hope
Use saw dry and you don't need to stick wheel blank to anything. Let the saw do the work. I often cut towards me so that I can see the cut.
|Thread: Newly back to model engineering - Issue with Hobbymat BFE65|
If you can I would check the fan as well
|Thread: vacuum brakes (again)|
David I meant that I had an idea that ether an injector or an ejector would not work on air, wasn't sure which
Sorry I had an idea that one of them wouldn't work
Ejector with compressed air ?
|Thread: Cutting spokes out on brass wheel|
Piercing saw every time. I find it very therapeutic
|Thread: Myford motor pulley shake.|
The motor shaft has a keyway, usually the pulley has a keyway, and yet manufacturers insist on just using a grub screw. Why not a key with a grub screw onto that ? In fact a properly fitted key should be sufficient.
Obviously cost must be a factor
|Thread: Constantly Having To Log In To The Website|
I've not had this problem on laptop for a couple of years. ( See what happens now )
|Thread: Identify this rod|
Seeing that the clock has countwheel striking, It can't be for repeat. I would suggest that it is either Strike / Silent, or more likely to make the clock strike so that by striking forwards the strike and time can synchronize.
|Thread: Lollipop maybe?|
I'd favour the magnifier
|Thread: Perfecto 5” hand shaper|
John The clapper box appears to be pivoted as they usually are so pushing wouldn't work
