Thread: Best quality M2 taps
16/07/2017 08:57:22
Posted by JasonB on 16/07/2017 08:08:40:

Although I have dormneones in teh larger sizes they get a bit spendy as the size reduces so I use Volkel ones M2.5 and below, usually get them from Rotagrip via their e-bay shop

Small size good quality taps are indeed spendy, the time you bougth them in the hardware store around the corner is long gone. I returned the 1.4mm ones from Bergeon since 110 euro ex. VAT was a shock. Niko.

Thread: Myford Super 7 chuck alignment issues.
03/07/2017 22:06:31

Try fitting a catch- or faceplate first before you try a chuck, because you can acces the thread of a those plates from both sides they are easier to clean, if they fit you know the spindle thread is fine. Niko.

You will have to check the spindle thread very thoroughly, small chips can embed themself in the thread and swiping it with a cloth or brush will not remove them. You will have to remove them with a small tool. The same is true for the thread of the chuck you try to fit. Niko.

Same with me, have it now for over 30 years. German made it came with a Rohm 1-13 mm drill chuck. No idea what I paid for it but not much. Niko.

In warm/hot weather the headband of Optivisor becomes very uncomfortable for me, it makes me sweat a lot. Niko.

Thread: Did we go to the moon in 1969
27/05/2017 12:52:29

Best is to send Trump with a Russian rocket to the moon so he can check for himself if its fake or not. Niko.

Thread: Jaeger 4 day car clock
05/05/2017 20:57:39

you can mail them and ask what the nearist is they have. 0.22 mm will be difficult to get, normal is 0.20 and then 0.25 mm. if you have acces to a surface grinder you can easily make the width smaller altough that leaves a very sharp edge that will happily cut your fingers during assembly. niko

One year after the Brussels atacks again we are shocked by another barbaric act. Regardless of Brexit we as Europa must stay together and form one front against those very sick persons who do this. Niko.

Thread: pinions

This is perhaps worthwhile buying, they try of course to sell there products but it gives also useful information. Niko.

Before you make adjustments, which should be minimal, mark the position of the split collar and the left adjusting ring for rear bearings. It gives you more control over what you are doing and you can easily return to the original setting. Niko.

Thread: Model engine brass shim 0.05mm thick

Brass of 0.05 mm also cuts easily with a knive around a template. Niko.

When you go with a small 1 mm thick brass strip along the cap, it very quickly takes on the profile of the teeth and takes out all dirt and filings. Niko.

Thread: Stalling Lathe
21/02/2017 21:43:19

I have had similar with my S7. it turned out it was the no volt release switch which had the contacts burned, so do check that before you take things apart. Niko.

Thread: Drill Chuck Recommendations for Drill Press
20/02/2017 12:44:21

I have used these suppliers end of last year, they were the cheapest for quality goods I could find and were quick with shipping. **LINK**


Thread: Grinding a carbon steel die
11/02/2017 10:25:53

Is it that new dies these days have a lead on both sides since most of the old dies I have only have a lead on one side which very usefull if you want to make a thread go up to the shoulder. Niko.

They say they sell small quantities with a minimum order of 55 euro plus P&P. Niko.


Thread: I want to fit an ML7 top slide to a Super 7 cross slide
03/01/2017 16:51:30

The spacing of the T-slots differ, so you cannot secure the ML7 topslide on the S7 using the T-slots. Niko.

Perhaps this one, Niko

They only have 100 mm, but you can shorten them, Niko.
