Thanks for the link, new use to me.
|Thread: Tools needed to build a 3 1/2in gauge Tich|
Welcome to the forum. I assume you have (or have access to) a lathe and the required lathe tools. Follow John's advice, if you give your approximate location there may be someone close that could advice you.
|Thread: Which beginners lathe is best|
I own an old Emco Compact 8 and it is still delivering good work. I don't know why Dave say the Emco is not good at running in reverse as there is no chance the chuck will come off, cutting left-hand threads might be more difficult though. I have made extra change-gears for it to cut Module threads and some other tools. Good luck with your first lathe.
|Thread: Thread gears for Warco GH-1322 lathe.|
The Warco 1322 with 32-85-100 gears are the setup used for metric feeds. It should be possible to remove those gears and replace them with others. The 42-127-120-42 combination of gears you give in your first post is for metric threading, other gears are needed for imperial threading as given in the manual Jason linked to. You should have a collection of change-gears for the lathe.
Are you sure you are looking at threading? To me, mm/revolution sounds like you are looking at the feed chart.
|Thread: IC Engine Liquidation|
Most certainly impressive work, a very talented mailman.
|Thread: Imported Boxford ME10 Needs help|
|Thread: Fobco Star Floor Stand / Storage Cabinet|
I'm using a tool-cabinet with drawers, similar to this, for my 120kg milling machine. I put a thick piece of kitchen top on top of it and some angle iron to support it. I also changed the wheels. It has done the job for over a decade, the drawers are handy for the milling machine tools and cutters.
|Thread: Size of a Boxford metric Lead Screw|
Have you tried asking the Boxford group?
|Thread: What insert tool|
Your first link points to CCMW060204 inserts, if you have a holder for them the HSS inserts should drop right in, as you say they are easy to sharpen. What the codes mean are explained here.

|Thread: Starrett Micrometer Gauge|
There is a similar one for sale on ebay, might give you a clue about what it is worth.
|Thread: How many chucks does one person need?!?!|
I too agree with Dave (SOD), and have a collection of chucks in different sizes, both self-centring and independent and a collet chuck. I like to be able to use a chuck that works well for clampinf the workpiece I'm working on.
|Thread: A Remarkable Model Engineer|
|Thread: Flamemaster Torch|
Yes, a photo could be handy as Bernard says, I assume your Flamemaster torch is similar to this?
|Thread: Matching mystery Jaws to chuck|
Welcome to the forum. On my self-centering 3-jaws the chucks have a number stamped for each jaw slot and each jaw is stamped as you describe and of course, go into the slot with matching number. I assume you have already cheked this thread?
|Thread: ME pipe fittings|
|Thread: Sigh, practicing a skill I would rather not need|
Sorry Baz, I used an example from a Swedish supplier I use, just to show the shape. They are used to drill out broken taps much the same way the D-bit Dave used. They are made from tungsten carbide and ned 1500 to 3500 RPM and a steady feed.
You are not the only one that has broken a M5 serial tap. I have never seen a carbide D-bit used to remove the broken tap, only a tool that was triangular in shape.
|Thread: Hello from New Zealand|
Welcome to the forum, that is a nice and well equipped workshop. Good luck with the Stuart.
|Thread: Cutting my first gear|
Yes, have a look at the bottom of this page.
