I have answered the Club newsletter Editor's request for 'filler' to help keep it going by trying to write something for each issue. So far so good. Discovered the side effect is that it keeps me on my toes finding a subject for the next issue but at least those roundtoits are getting finished off so I can write about them and perhaps add a photo or 2. So far, most subjects have embraced my take on making accessories for the mill or lathe. Things like how I made an led ring light to fit above the vert. mill chuck to give shadow free illumination. Ketan supplied 3 axis DRO about 7 years ago, soon have it fitted and working! Currently working on 2 different styles of work stops for the mill vice. As I have more than one, I'm doing types that attach to the table rather than the vice(s). Another idea is to do a full article on a numeral stamping jig for machinery dials using a simple design that doesn't involve too much time to make and is flexible enough to suit diff. dias. and widths of ring. Have already made and used such jig but experience suggests a number of improvements. Am looking forward to getting article in mag.
