|Thread: Ron's Jowitt Popett Valve Engine|
The Webster is reported to be a good starter engine if you want to try a simple IC engine. Many build threads on HMEM, Brian Rupnow's is a good one to look at. There are metric drawings available ***HERE*** but they are simply a conversion of imperial measurements into the exact metric so I would think not particularly useful.

|Thread: Warco wm250 with milling head attachment fitment question|
You have come out of that quite well then. A separate mill and lathe is definitely a better option than a combo. You will end up with basically the WM14 mill and the WM250 lathe, which is what I have had for a good number of years. For some more info on the machines have a look at mine on *** Journeyman's Workshop ***

|Thread: 4 Wire motor wiring|
This *** PAGE *** from Vintage Sewing Machines might help. The fat pin is the earth.
Used to have one of these motors on a home built fretsaw. As far as I can remember the the 4 pins are linked to a foot pedal for speed control but no reverse. If possible you can turn the motor up the other way to achieve reverse on a permanent basis.
I wish I could deter this blighter who keeps digging in my flower pots (I laughingly call them flowerpots but its mainly weeds and left over geraniums)
From the CCTV at 04:00 a couple of days ago. Don't know what it's after but the holes are a good 150mm deep.
Same with Tesco, have shopped on-line for years. Now I will have to break the isolation and go to a store, it will take me hours to shop as I don't know where anything is and have to read labels carefully for dietary reasons. Great
|Thread: Industrial Milling Machine|
3 cubic metres isn't that big (as opposed to a 3m cube) A Bridgeport or similar would need more space about 1.5wide x 1deep x 2high and thats not really allowing for table movement or access. Need to find out what it is then more advice will be forthcoming.
|Thread: What are you reading?|
If you use Calibre as mentioned above you can download a book from your Kindle or other device and save it locally so licensing and Amazon not being available can be circumvented.
A useful program for e-book management is Calibre which is free on Windows, Mac, Linux. Catalogues and stores and can convert all the various formats into whatever you need. Works with Kindle and other readers. Loads of free resources on line although some of them like Free E book.net keep sending e-mails!
Being a lazy old whatsit I get my groceries delivered by Tesco. Tried to book a slot today for delivery and the earliest I can get is 15th April. Presumably I shall have to starve or break the Governments "social distancing" advice. Can't even book click and collect as these are all booked as well!
|Thread: Warco WM280V-F Gearbox|
If the WM280/290 gearbox is similar to the WM250 the biggest problem with an oil change is getting the oil out as the drain plug is half way up the left hand side behind the change gears. So to empty it completely you either need a sucker or take the front off which is messy. I fitted an extra drain plug on mine behind the aluminium front plate *** LINK *** which is much closer to the bottom of the box.
Yes, a bit wider with the 3 extra gears on the right to select either the lead screw or feed shaft and of course an extra knob and selector arm.
The gearbox is fairly rudimentary, if the gears aren't meshing correctly as far as I can tell the only adjustment is by altering the position of the gear-change knobs on their shafts. The location of the gear-change arm and the U-shaped fork is as far as I can tell simply held in place by the ball bearing detent on the underside of the knob.
Inside the gearbox, left is the reverse and right the 3 speed ranges
Inside of the lid with actuator and U-shaped forks that sit around the gear.
Problem is you cant see anything to check the alignment once you put the lid back on! The pictures are of theWM250 but the 280 is probably pretty similar.
|Thread: Warco wm 250|
See WM250 Maintenance on my website. I'm afraid that it doesn't help much with the apron oil change as my WM250 hasn't got power cross-feed. I have heard some say that the apron doesn't need an oil change, just regular topping up, as it usually leaks like a sieve!

|Thread: Finally got the milling machine home.|
That disproves my theory, although I have only ever tried it using ordinary taps where it is one turn forward and half a turn back.
Slight drawback with keyless chuck is that you can't use them to hold taps as they come loose when you back the tap up! For everything else they are great and muck easier than the keyed variety.

You can of course always hold drills in the ER collet chuck, saves keep changing chucks!
