As previously said, people on this forum have had no border troubles getting parcels from Germany,

Getting parcels from the EU (Germany) is at the moment no problem for the UK since it is not ready for and has not yet implemented the new customs regulations. The EU was ready for them januari first but the UK not. As far as I know the new regulations should be in place this July but is now delayed for a year. Now I can make all kind of remarks about Brexit but this forum is not the place for it. Niko.

And that is only the beginning, the "fun" will start seriously when covid is behind us.

Before you (the UK) left the EU I bid and bought at UK auctions, now no longer to great a risk with import and cites problems (import of endangered goods).

Thread: Small saw. Proxxon or something else
23/04/2021 00:01:07

I just cut it on the workbench which is made out of melamine board and changed every year or so when it has to many (cut) marks. With a sharp knife it stays straigth and leaves almost no bur. Niko.

Perhaps not possible with stainless (never tried) but 0.1 mm brass cuts easily with a Stanley knife along a ruler. Niko.

29/03/2021 14:19:12

Annealed or hardened, I would heat it to red to make that bend. Niko.

Thread: New Scam Amazon
04/02/2021 17:53:36

I became so angry at them last week after being harassed now for several weeks by the same caller/number claiming I registered at “Lux Investment” and wanting further details from me that I named them everything I could think of in my not so good English. That made them angry and threatened to sue, to which I replied that I am waiting for it. After that almost continues calling from first a English 0044 number, after blocking that it changed to Italian 0039 and then to Polish 0048. The result is that I now have blocked all incoming international 00 numbers, hopefully they will now give up and normality can return in the near future. Niko.

Don't know about passivated plasterboard screws but would stainless not be better to use in the bathroom? Niko.

Thread: Myford Super 7 Gearbox Taper Pin

It is just possible to fit the large 72 tooth gear of the quick change gearbox on a clutch, it prevents damage if a crash happens. Niko.

Would a silicone spray prevent a metal (silver) hinge from sticking to a casting epoxy resin, or should I use something else? Niko.

Thread: Left handed lathe?
