|Thread: Why are BA taps so blooming expensive??|
Odd numbers in BA were never popular in industry. At least they weren't where I worked. And Stuart Turner often used a lot of odd sizes for lots of things like crank shaft bearings, crank pins etc

|Thread: How to clean a fusee cable|
Thank you gentlemen. All I needed to know was how to clean the oil off the cable.
Hello fellow horologists ( bikers may be of some help also ) I have a skeleton clock to repair. The fusee cable has become detached at the spring barrel end. The trouble I have is that it has been well oiled. How to clean the oil off so that I can resolder the nipple. For any help from the biking community it's a steel Bowden type cable
Thanks in advance

|Thread: Ideal Guillotine|
I came across these guillotines some 30 or 40 years ago. Judging by the first photograph, the blade is nearing the end of it's life. The securing screws are at the top of the slots. Make sure that it is supported along it's full length when being reground or it will end up sharp at the ends but not in the middle.

Believe me Ian your society is not unique. I am in a photographic society that has the same problem
|Thread: Left Hand Milling Cutter|
Norm forget my post above. It could be done but I shouldn't really recommend it.
If you have the cap screwed into a hole in a bar bolted to the table and go round it clockwise with a normal cutter it shouldn't unscrew, it should tighten up
