Thread: Covid causing mental health issues.
24/09/2020 13:23:20

As an aside, as I live alone and most of my friends are now dead I only have FB or text contact with my Sons.

I have a dog, an Airedale who I talk to often. She is forever hungry and demanding , wanting to go around the garden so the back door is nearly always open. She can open it herself.

The point I am making is that my involvement with Tess is beneficial to me and in some ways theraputic.

How do other members find there dog or cat friends help in these times?

Anxiety creates a subliminal stress factor, what will happen next, is it going to affect me, will I catch it.

Many people live routine lives and when that routine is disrupted then they are unable to cope., then a finacial situation arises and being unable to pay bills add to the distress.

Covid 19 is going to put the future in turmoil and the ramifications will follow for a long time before life adjusts itself to something near normal.

Covid 19 is not going to go away as it is world wide and affects all Nations, travel and the kickbacks from that.

Many vibrant businesses are in tatters and many will not recover. Fear for the future as you knew it!

Thread: Myford speed10 / ml10 apron disassembly
15/09/2020 22:38:54

You do not need a manual or a video, on the front of the apron first undo the nylocl nut on the engagement leaver.and lift off the cam cover, then undo the two allen screws on the top of the apron at the front edge. this allows the front of the apron to come away. At this point you will see two headless screws that engage with the engagement cam lever cover. remove them.

The two halves of the leadscrew nuts will be able to be withdrawn ( Note here:-that the one with the small grubs crew goes to the bottom) it's adjustment iis from under neath and needs avery small allen key which you will put away somewhere and lose!

Now you have a chance to clean the whole leadscrew thread and then wash all the parts in solvent and dry off. Note:- the half nuts will likely have some very hard stuff stuck in the thread.

Re-assembly should be easy enough and for lubrication use Graphite grease.

Thread: Diamond Honing Wheel Setup on ML10

ML10 highest rpm is approx 800rpm.

Thread: Mystery Object ... This one has me beat

The web with two holes is the way it is held in the concrete block, it is a surveying marker for mounting some sort of surveying gear..

I have looked at all my sources but no match so it looks as if I will have to dig out my marker and take a photo.

13/09/2020 10:00:31

I am not absolutely sure but I think that the horizontal mark iis to determine elevation, I have a couple around here that state the hieght. One says, '48 feet'.

Re. bench marks. there are a lot of them around here in Medway. Chatham and Gillingham.

Goes back to when the area was surveyed by the Royal Engineers to fix lines of sight for guns on the Hoath Artillery postion. and a camp alongside the A2 which had lots of tunnels and embrasures for guns.. ( Later turned into a mushroom farm) but all gone now and made into a business park.

In fact until the late fifties most houses on the Gillingham to Rainham area had a military covenanant to allow demolition in case of an invasion through the Thames/Medway Estuary. My Mother had to pay some money to have it removed. Thiis was because of, 'Line of sight' for the guns.

My Bro. has one cut in the brickwork of his cottage at a place called Sharps green.

This component isembeded into a cement base( it is in the picture upside down) the threaded hole will have a support of some sort being used by a surveyor.

I have seen several different kinds and have a couple I chop chop up for small items I make.

So my £ worth it is a surveying marker.


Thread: Good morning everyone

Paul, I retired from the REME in 1977, and started another carreer with an International Swiss Company LEICA,. I retired from them in 1999 settling back in Gillingham, kent. Then started work again at a smaller Coy. in Rochester and only stopped work in 2015 when made redundant at age 78.

Now fully retired I have a Myford ML10 and Seig Mill and a lot of other tooling. In process of making a 9F 3.5 gauge loco and other nits and bobs. Also a neekeeper, so forge ahead with your plans and enjoy yourself.


Thread: cateracts.
08/09/2020 07:25:26

Emgee, look on the internet and ask, ramapril and cateracts, or something like that. It makes very interesting reading.


07/09/2020 22:20:17

Rex, after having the pain clinic cancelled in March I have now been contacted to go on this coming Wed. 9th at 1545 hrs.. Letter instructs strict PPE requirement and to eait in car park and phone the number at 20 mins before the appt. Then I will be escorted in.

I still have pain but dull,ache across the back, walking is sore/painful. My only help has been a waterbottle to ease the ache.

One consquence is that I was called to an Asthma check and I wrote out what had happened and that I had been given ramapril. I got a scrip. for Amlodopine and told I should not have been given Ramapril in the first place. That means now I can take Ibuprufen as it is not comapatable with ramapril.

Warning, I checked the internet and some medical sites say Ramapril causes Cateracts!

07/09/2020 22:10:18

I believe it is Atropine that they put in the eyes, widens the pupil and stops the eye moving.

Thats why you need someone with you.

07/09/2020 07:32:55

I hhave made contact with two places, one quite local and another in maidstone and now just waiting for replies.

Moneu not a problem so happy to go ahead asap.

Will come back when something happens.

Thread: Flycutting on the speed 10
06/09/2020 22:42:29

Do not flycut without securing the mandrel, it will work loose with disater. Take heed of all the suggestions and act accordingly.

Make a mandrel, it is easy and saves a lot of problems at other times and jobs, Move the lathe to suit the gap you need.

Thread: rolling stock, carriages
28/08/2020 07:21:39

Thank you Andy, that clears up what I thought that itbwas all a mixture so now i am on a search for a couple of carriages that will suit.


27/08/2020 22:29:29

I have an 00 gauge 9f and I would like to add rolling stock to it. I know this loco was used on passenger hauling on the South West line and my query is what type of carriages were used.

They obviously would not be modern, and there are so many differnt sorts by regions.

Thread: Hot bearing?
15/08/2020 13:41:16

Thread: Regular maintenance myford speed 10
13/08/2020 10:55:16

Speed 10 handbook is the same as the ML10 handbook.

Beware of lubricating, make sure the headstock is ball bearing and can be greased, plain bearing oil.

Re. backlash, adjust the nut under the collar or do the mod. that can be seen on Arc's page at the end where they have some instructions.
