|Thread: New Scam Amazon|
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.
|Thread: The repair shop|
I never hear anything about money cost of repair, do they work for free? 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?|
Am I seeing this wrong way around or is this a lathe rYAAOSwhdVfDZKL">https://www.ebay.de/itm/Watchmakers-lathe-BOLEY-LEINEN/274439614604?hash=item3fe5e0308c:grYAAOSwhdVfDZKL special made for the left handed watchmaker? Niko.
|Thread: Small Tap Holder|
For small taps (<M 2) I use a pin vice but this is also a nice one **LINK** Niko.
|Thread: Not such a Dodgy Lathe on Ebay|
It is not difficult to find items on Ebay which have been "sold" but are offered again by the same seller. How they do it without paying sellers fee (Ebay & Paypal is around 15% together) is a question for me. Niko.

|Thread: Myford motor pulley shake.|
I should have made the taper a little less steep, 2 instead of 3deg. Niko.
Over the weekend I made an attempt to improve the pulley fitting by making a conical plug pushed in by a M6 screw in the motor shaft. It gave not the improvement I hoped for but a wobble of around 0.10 mm is good enough for me. Niko.
If you check the Myford motor drive pulley then the larger diameter of it has a shake of around 0.015 mm on a close fitting turned arbor in the lathe. It also has a good fit on the motor arbor itself but if you tighten the grubscrew that secures it on its arbor, that shake increases to around 0.25 mm which of course gives unwanted vibration. Because there is very little room the grubscrew is placed off-centre.
Has anyone come-up with an idea to improve the securing of that motor pulley on its arbor? Niko.
|Thread: Brexit No Deal - WTO duty on EU machines/tooling?|
If under WTO rules the UK charge zero duty on certain EU goods, then because of equality it also cannot charge duty on the same imports from other (non EU) countries. Niko.

|Thread: ArcEurotrade machine deliveries to Switzerland|
Certainly of topic but could not resist since it is a small pratical example of what is in store for a no-deal Brexit. Niko.
|Thread: Burgundy finish to tools with wooden handles?|
Do not know a UK supplier but Clou "bright red" is very red indeed **LINK** . Niko.
|Thread: Soldering Iron|
The new Weller irons I have also have a very stiff lead with an outer shell which develops splits when you wind it around the handle to store it. On the older ones you can replace the lead easily but with the newer it seems Weller do not want you to do that and made it a very fiddly job. Niko.
|Thread: Myford S7 Cutting Barrel Shaped Cylinders|
Using your method the newer one gives 0.02 mm and the older around 0.04 mm of indicator movement. Niko.
