Here's a picture of a 30" Elliott I used to use a few years ago, cutting dovetails in a 9" cube of EN9, no problems at all,

I've also got a 10" stroke "Royal" shaper, needs a few maintenance jobs doing , but is usable .

It has power cross feed, and also power vertical feed to the table.

We havn't heard much from the shaper users lately, are there any shaper restoration projects going on ? or any interesting shaper jobs,

No "Y" feed on the table, perhaps it uses the "in and out" movement of the head instead,

Hello Howard,


If my comments regarding PB and TOS chucks has riled anyone , then I appologise, Ketan has obviously done the right thing to inform us of any problems.

I have a weird sense of humour, and sometimes have a job controlling it.embarrassed

Vertex is excellent stuff, I've got loads of if, 14" HV rotary table, 6" HV rotary table, 6" machine vice, 40 INT spindle tooling etc etc, never had a problem with any of it !

It's reasonably priced as well,

Well good enough for professional users.................I like it.

I've never had a Vertex lathe chuck, but I bet they are good.

I'm glad that I stirred up the resident "experts" with my comments on Pratt and Burnerd , and TOS chuckslaugh

Thread: J-B Weld not setting
26/06/2016 14:37:00

Hello John,

Yes, I totally agree, but I would rather plug the hole with steel than use filler.


26/06/2016 13:16:41


If you've only got a hole in the wrong place, why not thread it and plug it with a threaded steel plug, loctited in and then re-drill the hole in the right place ?


Thread: hydraulic riveting
20/06/2016 16:35:25

Here is how I rivetted the wheels on the 6" Burrell traction engine I'm building, these are the front wheels and I did the back wheels the same way.

I have got a Mills 60 ton C frame hydraulic press, I adjusted the pressure right down to form a nice snap head in one go, on the 5/16" rivets cold.

Thread: Operators manual for Naerok RDM 350
31/05/2016 17:17:05

I've had a Naerok RDM 350 since 1986, bought it new from Millhill supplies at Crowmarsh Oxfordshire, ( remember them ? )

It's got a British GEC motor, It's not a perfect machine, but It's never let me down all the time I've had it. ( 30 years )

Thread: Tool Holders for Dickson Clone
26/05/2016 15:11:41

A while back I bought a "Rapid Original" QCTP for my Boxford ME10, it came with one tool holder,

My plan was to make a nice set of 4 tool holders to fit it, and put the whole process on the ME website,

This is where I'm up to at the moment,
