|Thread: History of model engineers|
The whole model engineering thing as a popular hobby was really started by Percival Marshall, who founded both the Model Engineer Magazine and the Model Engineer Exhibition. His relationship with Bassett-Lowke and Greenly probably instigated the popularity of man hauling model locos. Names worth researching. Have fun!
|Thread: Arbor for No.0 Jacobs Chuck?|
Just to confirm that 0 chuck takes a 0 Jacobs Taper. I turned one on to the end of the spindle for the drilling head on my George Thomas pillar tool.
|Thread: How to do 100 divisions|
In which case Dave, perhaps these pics will give some ideas:
OP says his lathe has gearbox...
Nor could I but Google could
|Thread: What bench drill|
When I bought my pillar drill Jet were the only ones to specify a run out on the quill. At least it gives you something to complain against. I'm actually very happy with mine.

|Thread: Linked belt for Myford 7|
I'm very happy with the powertwist belt on my S7. As we often find, high power industrial practise does not always transfer well to our tiny, low powered machines.
|Thread: How do I change the "default" lever angle on my Verdict DTI?|
The design of the T4A seems so different to other Verdict gauges that I wonder if it was intended to fit into a specific bit of equipment. The round body with the flush screw suggest it could be held in a hole so perhaps there was no need to change the direction or angle for its intended application.

Have you tried turning the screw on the side clockwise?
|Thread: lefthand acme thread|
Might be worth thinking about making an acetal nut **LINK**

|Thread: Ian S C Back again|
Good to see you back. We've missed your wise words.
|Thread: A good toolpost drill design|
A bit more discussion on these Here
I made mine from a plain shank er11 collet holder, a pair of angular contact bearings and a 200w 240v treadmill motor.
|Thread: Black & Decker Band Saw|
These people may be able to help **LINK**. Blade length is 59 1/2 "
|Thread: Betelgeuse in Orion|
After 4.2 x 10^15 miles the base of the cone will have a considerable area...
|Thread: The Workshop Progress Thread 2020|
MAP ( note the one P ) is readily available. It is mostly propylene and is sold as a substitute for MAPP since it burns a bit hotter than propane but does not have the other desirable properties. Acetylene is probably the stuff to use for these atmospheric engines. Calcium carbide seems to be available so making a simple generator shouldn't be beyond the wit of an engineer.
|Thread: magic 127 TOOTH ?|
In the "good old days" an 8tpi imperial lathe was commonly supplied with a set of change wheels - typically 20-65 in 5 teeth steps which would allow the cutting of any desired imperial screw thread. There are 151,200 permutations using any 6 of these 10 gears for drivers or drivens*. Finding a combination of these gears to give the correct pitch for a metric thread needed a systematic approach, hence the use of a 127 gear or the 63/100 ratio. However, in these days of computers we can can look at all those permutations very quickly and pull out a result that is close to the one we require - as in the table below:
The maximum pitch error is 1 micron.
*not really true since a driver combination of 20,30,40 is the same as 30,20,40 but a bigger number always looks impressive
