Thread: Why are BA taps so blooming expensive??
21/09/2020 08:58:54

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
20/09/2020 20:24:40

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

There used to be a proper guillotine in Halifax up Gibbet Street. I don't know if it's still there I haven't been for a long time

A photograph of the back of the board might help if possible

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.

If I remember rightly the firebox stays also hold the hornplates so I would suggest that they must be silver soldered

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
