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: 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.

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


24/06/2020 21:33:56

Sorry blush I had an idea that one of them wouldn't work

24/06/2020 18:06:36

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.
22/06/2020 13:52:44

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

I've not had this problem on laptop for a couple of years. ( See what happens now cheeky )

Thread: Identify this rod
21/06/2020 18:32:49

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?
20/06/2020 10:56:57

I'd favour the magnifier

Thread: Perfecto 5 hand shaper
19/06/2020 21:15:01

John The clapper box appears to be pivoted as they usually are so  pushing wouldn't work

I've never cut an external NPT thread but have tapped them.

How do you tap an external thread ? cheeky

Thread: Pesky Government Announcement!
