|Thread: Gemini Alarm Key Fob Battery|
The Instructions give the impression it slides apart - Arrows!
|Thread: Soldering Electrical Connections to NASA standard|
So much doom and gloom is attributed to the use of lead in its various guises and I have yet to see scientific evidence to support these assertions. How many deaths in wildlife and humans have a direct and proven link to lead ingestion or poisoning.

|Thread: Identifying a Parker Hale thread size.|
Parker Hale threads are bastard size and form, i cannot be any more helpful than that I'm afraid.

Where are you based, I have a selection of BSP taps.
|Thread: Myford Super 7 spanner sizes|
If you are looking for Ring Open End spanners try instead for Combination spanners, ring at one end open ended at the other, Each spanner only fits one size.
PS the ex Myford fitter who serviced my lathe advised Myford used the cheapest spanner sets available
And use ring spanners where ever possible.

|Thread: Helical pencil sharpener blade replacement|
Jakar - well know auction site spares listed. Caran d' Ache helical cutter replacement on Amazon UK (should I have mentioned this) Google make of machine as above and add spare parts. I obviously don't know if they will fit but with the sentimental attachment worth a punt and may be capable of modification to fit.
|Thread: What does this thing do?|
Gentlemen to shatter a possible illusion, I remember well my woodworking lessons over 50 years ago now. Regrettably not much time for woodwork now. Dovetail squares (now there's a contradiction in terms) permit striking out using a proper marking knife with the unsharpend edge of the blade resting against the square thereby preventing wavy lines.
Or reverse the the direction of application of the knife which is only sharpened on one edge.
It must also be noted the joints were marked out with a "marking knife" - never pencil although the marked lines could be highlighted with pencil and the waste also marked with pencil.
If it is a dovetail jig it can only be used for marking out, who would risk fine dovetail saws or chisels using it as a guide for cutting the joint?
|Thread: Help needed, can't release cast iron wheel|
Is that a screw slot immediately above the puller screw 12-00 o'clock? does the item on the end of the wheel then unscrew? both would serve to locate the cast iron wheel and when the wheel is removed may also reveal a key?
|Thread: Is this a daft idea please?|
Make sure you have enough headroom for the draw bar once installed particularly if the collects/chucks benefit from metric and imperial threads!
|Thread: What Did You Do Today 2021|
Iain - drain the compressor EVERY time you have finished using the compressor.
