Thread: Silent Air Compressor
15/04/2018 15:47:17

My original compressor was a good unit and worked very well,, but the noise , bloody hell !!!!. Standing outside with the garage door shut was still embarassing.

James, I bought one about a year ago, fantastic bit of kit, very quiet too. Would recommend one in a heart beat.

Thread: Our Wildlife and Conservation Activieties in Nambia

Ian, one can only hope he died a slow painful death. I sometimes think humans are evolution's big mistake.

Reading about the fantastic work people do to help animals reminds me how much Im looking forward to reading the Duke of Edinburgh's obituary. he has shot many of them including at least one Bengal tiger. Roll on......

Thread: Lifting or hoisting a Myford Super 7
31/03/2018 08:39:56

If you have an engine lift, bolt a couple of plates to the bed, with 4 big nuts welded on for the rope.2017_1105_03392300.jpg

Thread: Burglar alarm
22/03/2018 20:58:40

The law is wrong in my view, mainly that there are no deterrants to help stop the crime in the first place and generally speaking, the police are crap. I was told recently, that if you get caught driving off with snow on your vehicle , you could be in for a £1000 fine, but for burglary, first offence, a caution.

Thread: delivery
17/03/2018 13:41:06

Their price for 75mm × 50mm× 3mm box section steel is a bit pricey, at £74. JD metals, £40 including delivery.

Thread: Anyone feel the earthquake?
17/02/2018 17:36:28

Sorry about that, might have something to do with the catering size tin of beans I had last night.........

Thread: ward 2A lathe
23/01/2018 08:44:04

Hello all, this post brings back memories, in the early 60's , sitting in the bus driving along Constitution Hill past Cannings in Birmingham, you could look in through the windows and see rows and rows of capstan lathes churning out stuff. Sadly now gone.

Good luck to the OP wuth the refurb, and keep sending the photos in.

Thread: How effective are phase converters
08/01/2018 17:34:41

John Haine, with all due respect, burying the RPC is really not an option if you have a Hardinge HLVH with a dual speed motor, unless you really know what you are doing with VFD's !!. Unless you can afford 3 phase in your workshop.

Thread: John Stevenson

Hello all, I admit to not having visited this site that much recently, due to other interests, but just thought I would take a quick look this morning, I wished I hadnt now !!!!!!!!.

Thread: Bench Vice
09/09/2017 20:23:26

Dont forget Paramo as well, as good as a Record in my view.

Thread: Arboga U2508 Mill
07/09/2017 09:26:26

Many thanks for the replies, I think it will be my next project !. John, it does look a bit awkward to raise the head, which would mean leaving space behind the machine to get at the lever !. No machine is perfect I suppose. Cheers.

06/09/2017 19:15:44

Hello all, was offered an Arboga U2508 Mill today for restoration, for 100 quid being assured by the old chap selling it, works OK. Theres no power to the machine so cant check, but apart from some rust, looks in good condition. So the question is, are these mills any good, ie, up to the usual excellent Swedish quality ?. Many thanks. PS, sorry for picture on its side.2017_0906_01463900.jpg

Didnt come from North Korea by any chance ?........

Thread: what are these Tools?
26/08/2017 19:53:49

The glass fibre item is a comm stick, for cleaning commutators on electric motors. At least, that was what we were issued with them for by the Post Office.

Thread: Lathe Way Felt
09/08/2017 09:46:45

Hello all, Ive no idea if this person has been recommended as a supplier of wiper felt so I thought I would mention them. Their ebay username is - soj924h . An A4 by 6mm sheet is £3.50. Seems a fair buy to me. Cheers.

Thread: Grinding lathe chuck jaws
29/05/2017 22:43:26

Nice job on the chuck Joe, youve inspired me to have a go at one of mine !. Does the brass top hat become gripped on the jaw scroll "teeth" ?.

Thread: What Did You Do Today (2017)
29/05/2017 19:49:27

Spare a thought for poor Nicky Hayden( Moto GP champion 2006), whos funeral it was today I believe. A true gentleman and super rider. Sadly missed.

Thread: Screwcutting Crashes -
10/05/2017 21:00:59

Dave, have a look on utube for Joe Pieczynski, hes done a video about screwcutting the other way round, ie, from headstock outwards . Saves crashing ! I think its called, " Threading, best teqnique ever "
