Thread: Mystery tool No?
01/05/2022 19:56:01

It's a poising tool for watch balances


Thread: Reversible Marine Engine
29/04/2022 12:41:39

It's a pity that for marine use it won't be self starting


Thread: Drilling holes in thin material
23/04/2022 13:54:38

Was shown that in the early 50's at Tech College


Thread: Ambiguous words
23/04/2022 13:51:57

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
19/04/2022 18:42:29

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
16/04/2022 10:52:12

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
09/04/2022 09:06:37

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
06/04/2022 19:28:50

You will not polish the brass on a belt sander

Thread: End Mills
04/04/2022 20:47:44

Can I ask what you were doing when they broke ?


Thread: Gear cutting basics help needed.
03/04/2022 20:11:07

As stated earlier bore size is 7mm. ( 02/04/2022 ) You only need leaf count for pinions, all wheels use one cutter


02/04/2022 13:51:30

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: "Kiv" or Kiev?
31/03/2022 19:41:29

Rik how about Slaithwaite ( Slowit ) or Barnoldswick ( Barlick ) or Alnwick ( Anick )

Thread: Finding things
26/03/2022 11:07:02

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
25/03/2022 19:53:02

A photo would help


Thread: LED bulbs
25/03/2022 11:55:12

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
21/03/2022 08:38:29

How about dressmakers pins cut down

Thread: Stuart 10V - rust in valve chest
20/03/2022 14:04:29

Sounds like you need a moisture trap in the air line


Thread: Getting Old
15/03/2022 09:09:37

Too true yes


Thread: Spiral Taps
