|Thread: Modern reversing switch|
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.
|Thread: Home workshop site down?|
Reset the router and all is working again.
Thanks to all that replied to my query.
I have tried Linux/Firefox, Linux/Opera and now Windows 8.1 on a tablet and all I get is the spinning circle that times out after a couple of minutes.
I can get any other site I try no problems, cookies cleared, reset Firefox, switched off and rebooted and still nothing. Is it possible that the router could be the trouble, like a setting has changed, I am clutching at straws now.
I am not very computer literate unfortunately and have exhausted my abilities, I will have to ask for outside help on this one.
Thanks for helping me.
I'm using Firefox/Linux Mint.
So what am I doing wrong.
I hate computers!!!!
I have not been able to connect to homeworkshop.org.uk for 2 days now.
Anyone else having trouble with it, I'm on Firefox but Opera won't work either.
I feel guilty after posting a thread and now can't read or reply to it, I hate it when someone asks a question and is never seen or heard again after getting their answers.
|Thread: Denham Junior serial numbers|
Sorry to revive an old thread, but I am considering buying one of these Denham lathes.
What I need to know though is how deep are they. I mean front to back, the allocated space is quite narrow but plenty long enough.
|Thread: Mashstroy C210T / Warco 220 help please|
I don't see any reference to Mashtroy/Warco 220 lathes there.
|Thread: Small cast iron bar supplier?|
I did look up M-Machines on the web and only saw a Mini car specialists, but then I looked again today and noticed their metals store link. I telephoned and they will cut a piece or find an off-cut for me so it's all sorted. Thanks to Clive and Steambuff for that .
KWIL: I don't have a bandsaw but I do have more time than money, anyway I am all sorted now.
Thanks again for all the help, this forum is a great resource for me and any other very amateur model engineers, or more accurately tinkerers that like to just have a go with no real engineering knowledge.
Thanks for the advice to every one.
I will get a piece over size 30mm x 30mm from CES and spend a tedious day reducing it to size. There is no real alternative.
Does anyone know where I can get a small "meehanite" cast iron bar from, the finished size will be 220mm long, 28mm wide and 10mm thick. So a little over these dimensions would be ideal.
This is to make a sliding dovetail, a bit like a big gib strip, so if anyone can suggest an alternative material that will slide and wear well against an iron surface I'm all ears.
I have tried College Engineering and they can't help.
|Thread: Mashstroy C210T / Warco 220 help please|
OK, lets try again.
Here is my adjusting screw, the same as Rogers.
I was hoping to go through the adjustment procedure today but I have other problems today.
Here is a lesson in not using a 3 foot extension bar on your vice handle.
Pretty impressive for a 9 stone weakling.
That "was" a quality Record No2.
Actually this is all just an excuse to come into the warm and try to learn posting pictures.
So if it works this time thank you for all the IT help as well as everything else.
Incidentally I dislike computers with a passion but have to admit the internet is a fantastic resource and brilliant for contacting like minded people.
I better go and do something about that vice now, I have another in the shed somewhere.
Sorry my attempts at posting pictures was a dismal failure.

I appreciate all of the trouble you went to for that picture essay, it certainly will help me or at make it easier to understand when I get stuck into mine.
Thanks again, Ivy.
