|Thread: Opinion on using blue Loctite (thread locker) on clocks?|
Gentlemen Further to my comments above, I will agree that pinions and wheel collets can be fixed onto arbors with Loctite. but thats all. No screws should need to be that tight
I would consider the use of Loctite on a clock falls in the same class as the use of WD40 The perpetrators should confine their confine their efforts to sundials
|Thread: Gathering pallet|

|Thread: Myford super 7B Chuck threads|
Martin of Wick
By using this mount on the rotary table,you would be able to interchange the chuck, complete with job, between the lathe and the rotary table if you needed to
The large one with the nose on front is probably for mounting a chuck on a rotary table and I use a thread chaser to clean gunge from my chucks
The items bottom right are driving dogs ( ? ) for turning between centres
