Thread: Spare parts.
03/07/2020 22:31:40

Thank you all , I think the GC Amazon one is worth a try, looks right, numbers right so worth a gamble.

03/07/2020 20:39:06

Yes, it is A395021201438

It was in the series that offered two tickets to the USA !

Another scam that got Hoover a bad name.

The awful truth is it was never intended to last this long and now they no longer make spare seals for it.

Many thanks GB, Door seal part no 271 Discontinued.

The dirty washing is backing up, sometimes you just have to ' Give in ',

And thanks PR, if I live long enough 75 + 28yrs I will try that trick on the new machine.

Door seal required.

Does anyone know if there is one left anywhere ?

Homespares burnt down . Espares only have 800 series,too small.

A huge shame to throw a good machine away for the sake of a replaceable item.

If you need a book always Google abe books first !

Thread: Coronavirus, advice from ME

We could all go back to those ' tried and trusted' remedies of the olden what finished Robin Hood.

Thread: Exploding Grinding Wheel
30/06/2020 08:48:26

Not a grinder but 'new starts' at Hinkley Point were always shown the roof of the Magnox turbine hall where the

blades went through.......................

Thread: Copper boiler plate flanging, or not?
29/06/2020 13:17:29

Assemble your boiler in the wrong sequence and I will guarantee it will fail a pressure test.

Alec Farmers book is the only one to read.

Thread: Reamer type
29/06/2020 08:25:17

Good if used with copious lubrication, a slow continuous controlled feed.

Or not and go for a totally 'chattered', rifled bore.

Depends what you want.

Thread: ML10 - racking of carriage?
24/06/2020 16:06:19

That is the major shortcoming of a V bed , two directions of thrust are adjusted by one movement.

Adjust for wear close to the chuck will make the saddle so tight when it moves back.

Thread: Hylomar universal blue failed to seal oil?
24/06/2020 11:01:43

NEVER ,EVER use the wrong blue Hylomar on a petrol line.

.Unless you like removing blue torpedoes from the line for years to come.

Thread: Buying first lathe
23/06/2020 17:38:00

Don't have regrets, there are better 'original', unpainted items like that one around. Just be patient..

22/06/2020 18:58:59

Plus ,I don't see the full set of change-wheels, add £80min.

22/06/2020 12:17:00

Looks nice but don't forget you will need a 4 and 3jaw chuck, full set of change-wheels, tailstock chuck,etc

as a minimum before you can really 'get going' .

Thread: Are there any published Torque settings for BA
01/06/2020 18:24:40

This may seem strange but you really need to strip/break some and learn.

Obviously not in your prized Stuart !

Thread: Braze Welding Gear Tooth Repair
01/06/2020 11:16:45

Nothing wrong with good bodge but I would think a tapped to plain shank Allen screw(s) filed to tooth profile is about equal to all the heat damage to adjacent teeth by brazing/welding ?

Thread: Coronavirus
31/05/2020 12:42:49

We are all, two or three generations on, survivors of the ' Spanish Flu'.

No lockdowns then, so what happened ?

Did all our 'parents' get it and survive ?

Are the survivors today the ones who inherited some immunity from that earlier time ?

For sure, the next few weeks will show whether all this 'sacrifice' has been worthwhile, or a complete


Thread: LBSC 3.5" "Maisie"
29/05/2020 11:45:10

Thermal conductivity figures as 'k'

copper 380

cork 0.052

wood (oak) 0.147 to 0.216 Balsa would be more like cork figure.

felt 0.03

If 'economy/ heat loss' was the criteria then a thickness of 60mm is recommended for a 100mmOD pipe.

In other words, it probably doesn't make much difference lagged or not !

Thread: Toothe broke on lathe chuck
25/05/2020 07:35:37

Remember too, that the capacity of the chuck has been reduced by the missing tooth so take care it doesn't happen again !

Especially since it is probably No 1 jaw ?

24/05/2020 09:12:56

Usually caused by overtightening/shock load when at the extreme capacity of the chuck.
