    Electronic speed control on a small lathe with short duration may well be OK but I would be concerned about the motors cooling on a long job. CVT thought DAF did that in the 60s or at least I remember a few swearing lessons changing the belts Nothing new just reworked re badge re branded and...

    My first boiler

    A nice boiler and for its purpose more than adequate Lets be honest if efficiency was a concern a simple pot boiler would not be my choice Steam dryers can be useful although simple oscillators run better on wet steam I doubt very much that many models reach super heated steam temps and if they...

    Leaky Check Valve

    Just use a nitrile ball saves all the hassle First use a steel ball of the same size give it a biff with a guided punch or just let a centre drill kiss the edge.
