Thread: Help finding a rare bolt / machine screw
18/12/2016 20:29:40

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

Thread: Telephone Scam ??
30/11/2016 21:13:39

Last week had one on the phone, had a year ago around 3 a day for 2 weeks, best is to answer with some xxxx words and hang up. Niko.

Thread: How often are you alligning your lathes?
05/11/2016 10:32:42

I leveled the 2 lathes I have 15 years or so ago, checked them now and then but no movement at all. They stand on non reinforced concrete on sand, with ground water level at around 10 m. Niko.

Thread: Myford ML7 using Super 7 parts
29/10/2016 22:08:50

I do not think that apart from the leadscrew and rack there differences are between the standard and longbed versions. I know the holes in of the longbed rack does not match that of the standard bed because I stil have a longbed rack waiting to fit onto my standard bed S7 to get the maximum travel out of saddle when all limits are removed. Niko.

Thread: ML7 cabinet , bolt to floor or rubber feet?
28/10/2016 07:33:43

Before you bolt is to the floor, do check if the lathe height is comfortable, I with 1.86 m find the original cabinet to low and raised it by 13 cm. Niko.

Thread: Russian aircraft carrier in the channel

Well said. As for the black exhaust, what would be the cause of that? Poor maintenance?

It is the galley crew taking part in "The Great Britisch Bake off ". Niko.

Thread: Circle Heat tTreatment
20/10/2016 12:27:58

I would first try to work the inside of the ring with a small hammer, so the inside curve of the ring expands and the diameter gets larger. Niko.

Thread: Soldering brass mesh.
13/10/2016 21:46:15

This is widely used in the Netherlands **LINK** on the Dutch website you find more products special for difficult to (soft) solder materials and for stainless which I do not see on the English website. Pure copper has nothing to do with brass which is an alloy of (pure) copper and sinc as already said, perhaps you can ask the supplier for advice. Niko.

Thread: Myford Super 7 - Powered Crossfeed
05/10/2016 09:40:13

Do read this thread from a few years ago "Carriage (Myford Power Cross Feed stop)" , Niko.

Thread: Press fit bush
13/09/2016 19:11:55

I support Martin, a 2 mm wall in cast iron will fracture without warning. Niko.

Thread: Most blatant Ebay hacking attempt
04/09/2016 17:40:08

Here is explained how the account was hacked, **LINK** . Niko.

Thread: super glue
14/08/2016 22:16:29

I would first scrape it down with a scalpel as far as you dare. Niko.

Thread: mandrel handle
11/08/2016 14:07:00

I only use a handle when I mill the thread of a musical box worm gear, they can get small with a diameter of 1.8 mm with 0.8 pitch and find it gives you more "feel" with the work. Niko.

10/08/2016 19:18:55

With envy I look at all those beautiful made mandrel handles, when I needed one I hastily put one together. Niko.

Thread: Myford Power Cross Feed Screws & Nuts
08/08/2016 12:43:01
Posted by KWIL on 08/08/2016 12:39:28:,uk is an OK, have dealt with him in the past.

Not sure whether the Connoisseur and Super 7 screws are the same size.

I stand to be corrected, but as far as I know they have the same saddle. Niko.

08/08/2016 12:29:51

The lead screws advertised on the link are metric and although available for the Super 7 are not power cross feed.

Robert Butler

Yes, but you asked where that advert was with the bronze nut. Under connoisseur spares Myford lists the imperial leadscrew as available. **LINK** Niko.

07/08/2016 23:20:41

You probably came accross these **LINK** , they are for a ML7 and I do not think they have a imperial version, but you can always ask. Niko.

Thread: Suitable varnish for MS
07/08/2016 10:16:44

I now use old fashion French polish for metal parts, works easy and dries fast. Niko.

Thread: How to make one of these (hardened steel lever)
04/08/2016 23:57:35

You will have to make it, searching German sites in German gives no result. Niko.

04/08/2016 14:58:36

OK, it is an old part but have you searched the German sites in German? Niko.
