    Wizard lathe restoration

    Whilst I am 'resting' after trying to mend my disabled scooter( Yes it is disabled like me:(), I recall a name that appeared in Model Engineer about the Super Adept called J. Latta. Again, I recall that he made a rotary table for it- and described it there. Yea, and come to think of it, he...

    More than that but Safari is blocking some. I wonder who is actually initiating requests for our so called profiles.

    I've just updated my Mac PC and noted that in the past 7 days I have been tracked NINE times. No other trackers from elsewhere have been mentioned:( Are others being similarly affected? Moderators et al might care to comment Norman

    Gloves in a Bottle

    As far as I know, there are at least two global pharmaceutical companies doing research and obviously selling their products. It just happens that I know this because I'm a major shareholder in both:D I suppose the same sort of thing goes for 'the packaging industry' Apart from death, which...

    Gloves in a Bottle

    As the years have rolled on, I'm a Vitamin B-12 sufferer and ned injections as well tablets. But it doesn't happen. The medical fraternity are just too busy with more important issues. Comes next Friday I was down for an injection for macular degeration but I expect that the visit will be...

    As I write late on 16th September, there is more than the threat of yet another lockdown for the whole of the North East of England. Makes me think that others must be very lucky to think of less important things Best Wishes to all. Take Care. Be Safe Norman

    Apologies but 'we' are living in a World where 'everyone' is trying to minimise and hopefully eradicate this coronavirus.

    I think the Amazon price is Amazing! Get them for the Tee price plus postage -- and really enjoy the way that pedantic old guy clearly arrived at things. All of his stuff links together. When my Model Engineers Workshop manual was barely readable from use, I didn't quibble and bought a new copy

    Cutter grinder

    BaronJ and I were communicating about the New Tiinker and the one that we both knew from the original designer- Norman Tinker. Actually, it would not be ffar from the Tinker design to use a vertical slide instead. It would need a hinge but it is worth a thought. I also have a scrap top slide...

    In the absence of the 21 Tooth gear, I always understood( but never needed to try) that the gear box cpuld be bypassed by selecting the 8 TPI on the box and set the banjo up as if it was a non- gear box machine. Long way round the problem but am I right? Cheers Norman
