    There's nothing wrong with working at slow speed Paolo.... That's all I ever do! :big:


    Sorry to hear of your lathe trouble.... it's not good to have a machine out of use, I remember the weeks my lathe belt snapped and I couldn't use it..... Horror!! :big:

    at least you have found something to do in the time the lathe is out of action :)


    Won't be too long now.... we will be able to see it all together. well once your lathe is fixed that is! ;D

    I don't know how I missed the 2nd part of this thread. The boiler builds are fascinating to me. I have only built one and it was a small one at that. I have some of the stuff to start another.

    Back to you Paolo... great job. Wish I started watching the build sooner. Look forward to the rest of it.

    Good to see you back at it Paolo. ;D


    A self design for the mill repair... And the trap of not having the mill to make the parts on!!!! :eek: This is not good!

    Hopefully you will get it sorted out soon?


    Meanwhile, Your boiler is moving along ;) That's something Eh?



    Good luck with the mill repair ;)

    Paolo,

    Good work on your boiler. :bow:

    Sorry to read about all your machine troubles coming at once. [​IMG]

    Speed is not important and at least the boiler is keeping you busy. ;)

    Hang in there it will come good soon. [​IMG]

    Best Regards
