    Parting tool chatter

    Out of curiosity, just how wide is a so called commercial blade? I'm sort of amusing myself with access to a variety of tool and cutter grinders----- as my hacksaw is blunt😃 Next damn silly question is when does a normal lathe tool become a parting tool? And what about this 'chip breaker'...

    'I am Chronicler'----- Romeo and Juliet, please! Shakespeare also wrote in Midsummer Night's Dream about ' Rude Mechanicals';) And All the World's a Stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances and -- one man in his time plays many...

    Parting tool chatter

    You are probably referring to Robert H Smith's Advanced Machine Tool Work( 1925) Splendid book and available on the 'net. Sadly in a fit of generosity I gave my coppy away😆 However, I'm hanging on to my copies of the various volumes of Holzapffel. They 'say it all! I mean where does one get a...

    Build my own milling machine

    I agree with with Chiptosser and I simply don't think for a moment that most posters here have even got near to 'making a milling machine' There's and an old saying that one needs a lathe to make a lathe and i have no doubt that this applies to making a mill. As a non engineer, I have 'sort of...

    Software in the cloud

    Being honest( well?), I haven't a clue about computers or clouds or Eye pads- apaart from after a bloody needle is suck in mine. But it is 'Battle of Britain Day of 80 years ago. I guess that when it was my turn to out on a uniform and see my comrades literally burn to death, I got the use of...

    Wizard lathe restoration

    I think that you are missing a couple of points. Firstly, all this restriction suggested about power of motors is wrong. within reason, the bigger the motor the better. If you follow one worker, he had TWO motors for his ML7 and one was a full horsepower. Seemingly, he made a substantial...

    Wizard lathe restoration

    Jon I studied 'Pelmanism' and iI can 'see' a little lathe with rotary table:) As for motors, we always used 1440rom Quarter horse motors from old washing machines. There should still be one in the garage loft. Writing about motors- I'm going off the top of my head but it's Year 1953...

    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.

    Gloves in a Bottle

    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...

    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
