Happy birthday Windy !. I admire all you people that ride bikes at insane speeds , which has reminded me of another bloke I admire too, a picture of Danilo Petrucci breaking for the hairpin from over 190 mph at I think the Red Bull ring, Not much fork travel left surpriseProbably my all time favorite bike picture.

Bit lost with some of the answers , but in my case , I bought a seconhand Jaguar Cub off ebay many years ago, 2.2kw for my DSG, screwed it to the wall with an emergency stop on the headstock . Perhaps Ive done it wrong, but looks safe to me anyway.

Get youself a Diamond Toolholder from Eccentric engineering , saves a lot of messing about grinding all the facets by hand . Clamp HSS bit in the jig provided in the kit, a few passes across the wheel, job done.

Thread: show us your workshop.

Steviegtr, keep up the good work !. Have always loved pictures of peoples workshops , mainly for inspiration and the pleasure of seeing the equipment.

Oily rag, why on earth do say you found U tube content extremely sad ?. Were you watching funerals ?. I know its all subjective, but in my opinion, theres everything imaginable on U tube, and most of the time a lot better than TV. Historical, machining, welding, woodwork, battleships, railways, motorcycles, cars, just about anything you can think of !!!.

Thread: David Wilks, Sheffield.
20/11/2021 08:35:34

Thanks for the replies . All we can do is hope hes fit and well. Might give that company a ring on Monday !.

Hello all, I know this is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone know whats happened to David Wilks , a machinist from Sheffield. He used to do a lot of videos on U tube about trepanning , on hard steels like Inconel . Its been many months since his last video and am getting concerned, probably like a lot of people that something has happened to him !.

Do hope hes OK . Many thanks.

Thread: Cheap Chinese 3jaw chuck.
14/07/2021 21:59:25

Hello all, bought a 4 inch self centreing Chinese 3jaw chuck (£43) off ebay, made a backplate and fitted it to a spin indexer. Chucked a piece of 3/4 inch ground bar and checked the runnout - 1 1/2 thousands of an inch !!!!.

Not bad at all. Incredible value.

As an aside, my friend asked me some time ago if I could repair a bottom guide runner of a VW Transporter sliding door , VW price about £110 . Got one off ebay , Chinese of course , for £8.90. Beautifully made too. Delivery included. Bloody hell !!.

Alan Waddington 2, well said. Makes me angry when I see people on street corners in the rain collecting money for cancer research, when they will now spend billions on a building which is just a monument to human stupidity.

Thread: Just desserts
10/04/2019 18:43:57

Plasma, well said !. The poacher would have died in agony, yes.

Reminds me of the picture of a certain prince kneeling by the side of a 1 ton water buffalo he had just shot, he didnt feel any pain though.
