|Thread: WARNING Scammer|
Well that account has been removed, but I fear he will crop up again.
I used to use ebay a lot for buying and selling but it has become to big to police now.
|Thread: Living with a Chester DB10 super lathe|
There is a Canadian lady on youtube called "blondihacks". Look for her video "import lathe buying guide". I think her lathe is equivalent to yours.
I like all her videos because she is not afraid to show her mistakes and inexperience in some areas.
|Thread: WARNING Scammer|
After I got caught I asked a friend to bid on an item which he won, he said he would collect with cash, "can I have a name and contact number?" he asks. All communication stopped and the item was relisted.
OK, he will not take paypal, and the feedbacks are him buying.
Register an account, buy a few 99p items to get some feedback and then your set to go.
I have nothing to gain giving this info, only trying to save others losing out.
As I said before check back in a few days, the account will be gone. Put all his items in your watch list and see.
I am going to stop trying to help now.

Yes, and the Super 7, and the welder. look back in a few days, that one day old account will be deleted.
Sadly the chances of seeing the goods are zero.
I am only trying to stop anyone getting burnt as I have been.
This Boxford lathe item number 383731192237. Look at other items as well.
When the complaints start ebay will remove the account and he wll start again with another account.
Pass the word around and please move to the appropriate page if needed.
There is a scammer on ebay "selling" machine tools. The listings look very convincing, but trust me it's a scam. He always wants payment by BACS and is always located in the north of Scotland.
He offers cash on collection as well to make it more convincing but the chances of being in the same area are pretty remote.
There was someone doing this on homeworkshop I think.
|Thread: Modern reversing switch|
Haha, talk about being blinded by the obvious. Thank you for the best solution.
It's the "interesting" nature of wiring it up that worried me. If you get one will you let us know how fitting it goes please?
What's the collective thoughts on using a switch from ARC Eurotrade C6 lathe?
It is listed in spare parts for the C6 lathe but on the phone he would not commit to it's suitability, although it looks like a drum switch to me. (cannot paste the link for some reason) I could use an additional NRV.
I will just say it's for a Brooke Compton motor as fitted to a Myford ML10, split phase, i.e. no capacitor.
Thanks for reading again.
I would like to replace the Dewhurst on my Myford ML10 to allow easy threading (I am no way an expert here).
I am in North Devon.
I have to go offline now, I will come back tomorrow.
That would do it if the combined ones are not available any where.
But again my wiring ability is hopeless, I would need simple step by step instructions. Just as well we this forum.
I knew about bumping, but not tilting. Thank you.
That may be the way forward, although I would need some help with the wiring. I don't trust myself here.
I will bear that in mind.
They are no longer available.
Lost me there!!!
Does anyone know of a UK source for modern reversing switches, the sort with a built in NRV.
Chester used to sell them apparently but they are no longer listed on the website.
Wiring instructions would be helpful too.
I am always so pleasantly surprised at the great help and brains on this site, so someone will come up with some thing I'm sure.
Thanks for reading.
|Thread: Come on you clever people|
A lightening detector it is then.
Thank you for all the contributions, I knew some body here would know.
I did read the company website "about us" page but the corporate, management speak about power transmission and network solutions said a lot about nothing really. I guess I am not their target audience though.
Thanks again, especially Neil.
P.S. I have asked a lot of people I have met walking here and the usual response is "dunno mate".
Does nobody have an enquiring mind any more?

I knew I had come to right place.
I will continue reading tomorrow.
Thanks for the suggestions so far, keep them coming.
I'm sorry I don't know what R.O.C. is.
