|Thread: Mystery tool No?|
It's a poising tool for watch balances
|Thread: Reversible Marine Engine|
It's a pity that for marine use it won't be self starting
|Thread: Drilling holes in thin material|
Was shown that in the early 50's at Tech College
|Thread: Ambiguous words|
The use of double negatives is a no no
The use of double positives is frowned on as well. Yeah, right.
|Thread: Ping - and a screw is lost|
I would agree with Dave S especially as regards the ends of tweezers and also, don't squeeze them too hard.
|Thread: Cutting my first gear|
You can't call yourself a gear cutter until you've done that. Incidentally, you're cutting the spaces between the teeth not the teeth themselves.
|Thread: Rising costs of materials|
I was always told that any hobby is a pleasant way of spending money
ps. If I stopped eating I'd be well off
|Thread: Polishing Brass|
You will not polish the brass on a belt sander
|Thread: End Mills|
Can I ask what you were doing when they broke ?
|Thread: Gear cutting basics help needed.|
As stated earlier bore size is 7mm. ( 02/04/2022 ) You only need leaf count for pinions, all wheels use one cutter
Don't forget that in a clock the wheel is driving the pinion. Not an ideal situation.
Note to Ian. If using Thorntons or Bergeons cutters, the bore of the cutter is 7mm.

|Thread: Finding things|
I've lived in the same house for 88 years. There are drawers that I've probably opened twice in all that time.
|Thread: What is this wonderful locomotive|
A photo would help
|Thread: LED bulbs|
I find with LED lamps that if the lamp hangs down from the fitting, it lasts longer than if the fitting is upwards as in a table lamp. Maybe something to do with what heat is generated
|Thread: Micro rivets|
How about dressmakers pins cut down
|Thread: Stuart 10V - rust in valve chest|
Sounds like you need a moisture trap in the air line

Try a diamond stone on he inside of the flutes
