|Thread: What mills have you had|
Dore Westbury Mk1
Centec 2B with later quill
Also have a Boxford shaper.
|Thread: What lathes have you had?|
Myford Super 7 pre power x-feed (bitsa, had previously been dropped)
Warco 720 (Myford Super 7B power x-feed) I'd really like to find someone else with one of these.
Not sold any yet and also have my Dad's Record wood lathe, though I've not used it up to press.

Andrew, It would be a shame to leave because a (very) small minority of others fail to think of the consequences of their posts, or how they may be interpreted by others.
Sad to say, It's not just on this forum, I've seen it increase elsewhere too, but can't really understand why.
All the best
|Thread: Rounded Torx Screw Removal|
The search engine on here's not too bright, try "saving a toolholder" i.e. no space in the last word
Alternatively look HERE
|Thread: Myford ML7 tailstock bore, and threading the barrel to fit a chuck|
As an alternative and maybe cheaper/simpler method, how about a metal block bolted to the slots on the cross slide, and machined to hold the bow.
|Thread: What are these used for please?|
I've no sense of scale for No.2, but it looks like a punching or embossing tool, for a series of dents or holes along the middle of a strip of something.
|Thread: Thread Bare|
I think I'd rather use grub screws than cap-heads to hold the die though.
|Thread: Motorcycle General Discussion|

|Thread: Yesterdays Car Boot Haul! Odd items|
I think No1 is a salesman's model of a safety coupling for use on coal tubs down mines, rather than a full sized item.
See This Link.
I started a quick search based on the idea that part of it looked similar to a wire rope clamp used for tensioning old telephone aerial cables or dropwires, and bingo.
Even though it pre-dates WW1, it didn't stop my Dad getting a crushed finger between two tubs when he was down the mines in WW2
p.s. looks like I've been pipped at the post. I was replying to an earlier end of the thread and only found the later replies when I replied myself.

|Thread: Centec raising block|
Do you have any plans to make any more Gary; I don't think Tony from lathes.co.uk is intending to commission another batch.
|Thread: ABRA File or Modern equivalent ?|
Try here then
Check out this thread, especially the post by Mark Simpson 1
|Thread: Rover V8 drilling valve guides|
A bit busy for a long conversation at the moment, but have you considered having the existing guides knurled internally.
My own engine builder considers it better than replacement, particularly for Rover V8s.
|Thread: Gents impulse clock|
I would certainly grab the long case clock before anyone skips or damages it.
Obviously measure lengths before detaching the weight. My own one(s) were designed for 50v working, but mine have been fine running off 12v for 20 years.
Any chance of some photos please?
|Thread: Horizontal Bandsaw - Final Thoughts|
Machine Mart regularly have VAT free offers on Clarke stuff. There's on on at the moment, though I think you need a voucher code.
|Thread: Oh bugger, I told you I was ill|
Hope all goes well Mick, let me know if you need a hand swapping the motor out, assuming we haven't completed out house move by then.
|Thread: What's this tool?|
I wonder if it could be part of a version of this cart jack currently on ebay
|Thread: Turning between centres on a Cowells CW lathes|
If you have a chuck, use that to hold a bit of scrap bar and turn it down to a point; there's your nice new guaranteed true dead centre. Maybe even use a square bar in a 4 jaw and turn a parallel section behind the point so you can clock it for re-use.
|Thread: Getting rid of the garage door...........|
And another variation on the theme of keeping
A sectional door works in a similar fashion to a roller shutter, but without needing the headroom for the roller. Thus ut can be opened without any need for you to move the car.
I've just moved house and had a second garage built, the original one having a pair of conventional up and over doors. I.e. I can't park close to them, whilst being able to open the doors.
|Thread: The Putter|
A brief bit about the company HERE, good to see them getting back on their feet again following Nick's sad death.
I did go round the works on their final day, and purchased a few pairs, before the later rescue package was put together.
