Thread: Question on chucks & a warning on lathe safety.

Its quite possible he only intended doing this at a very low RPM, still daft I know, and perhaps forgot that it was in high range.......

Referring to the fatal accident at the beginning.

Thread: Arduino Rotary Table MEW 249
09/02/2017 10:06:43

Hello all, thanks to Carl and others on here, Im happy with the way my Arduino RT project has finished up. One strange thing I noticed when using it recently is the way the CW and CCW buttons work in the RUN mode.When using divisions , angles or jog, the left (CW) button turns the table clockwise, and the right (CCW) anti clockwise as it should. However, in the RUN mode, the FIRST press of the left button turns the table anti clockwise, so does the other button. But if I press the left button again, it turns the table clockwise as its supposed to, and then normal after that.!!! This happens every time I select the RUN mode, then corrects itself.

Anyone else had this problem ?. Many thanks.

Matt, a couple of us had the same problem as you, so if you look back through these posts you will see that you haveto change the numbers for the SET figure in the sketch at the very bottom. I think I changed the setting to the same as Silly Old Duffers. Also Carl gives the correct settings for the Dip switches too .

Hope this helps.

Thread: Titan HSS drill bit sharpner

Hello all, I was recently given one of the Clarke drill sharpeners as a gift, still had the price on it, £24 . I thought it wouldnt be much good because it was " junk " ( thats what it says on the internet !!!), but it actually works well.

Hello Jimmie, I know its not the same thing, but I bought one of the Titan SDS Plus hammer drills, very well made piece of kit for the price. Fantastic for 60 odd quid.

Hello Ronan, my Chinese digital caliper must be a strong one because its been freezing in my workshop, and always comes on, but my Swiss Sylvac dies in the cold !. You must have been unlucky.

Hello all, Ive told my wife a number of times that whatever she does, dont let the scrap man have anything. Just pick up the phone and contact one of the preserved railways, West Somerset, Vale of Berkeley, Bodmin etc. Im pretty sure they would jump at the chance of some useful equipment. Apart from the odd battery drill, Im pretty sure she or the kids wont want anything. Thats my wish anyway.

Thread: Best way to cut stock to size
21/12/2016 10:06:51

Bill, ive the one with the 350 mm disc and have cut many 2 inch mild steel bars on it. Take it easy, and they will cut just about anything. Very noisy though. With some juggling, I cut through a 6 inch square RSJ the other day.

Bricky, I did exactly the same to our patio window, I thought I was far enough away too !!.😥

Thread: Heritage steam under coal threat
11/12/2016 22:58:52

Yes, I watched the programme about the last British coal mine, the Big K, a bloody disgrace. I havent been so angry in years. How on earth can it be cheaper to import coal from Russia !. From what Ive read, theres a lot more than 150 years worth of it left. We are run by morons, including the green brigade......theyre green alright !!!.

Silly Old Duffer, thanks for that about the potentiometer, I tried many turns both ways but still nothing. I might try uploading again to see what happens.

09/12/2016 17:42:35

My first time with the Arduino Uno too, and after getting something like " done uploading ",, I get bugger all on the LCD apart from the light !!. Oops. Any thoughts anyone please, bearing in mind I dont really know what Im doing.
