Hi Chaps, weather is still atrocious, bitter wind and horizontal sleet today, and I have stayed in the warm! here are some more of my projects, ongoing and finished, but we start out with the glory days of Dean Smith and Grace in Keighley, West Yorkshire, A factory I actually went to in the seventies when I got my first lathe, a DS&G 13Z. If you go to www.lathes.co.uk/dsg there is a factory tour there which is every bit as interesting as the Doxford one Hope you like it, and don't forget to comment and subscribe.

That was my thought when I bought it, and also grinding lathe centres. The limiting factor is the collet on the workhead which carries the valve, which is a max of 5/8". Not a huge jod to build another work head though. It is pencilled in as a future project! Thanks for the comment!

Hi Chaps, the week was going so well, once it had started (Tuesday), weather has improved and I feel fit again, and it was all downhill fom there! When everything around you is going bad, you have to take the opportunity to "break on through to the other side" so it's head down, and puuuuuush!Like, laugh, subscribe, comment enjoy!
Phil,
East Yorkshire.

I had the same problem with my Lincoln 175 Square Wave machine. And it did turn out to be the hi voltage cap. At the time $60. If you can't find the Miller part, you could try Lincoln. As you say, they are all about the same circuitry. Cheers

I can get one in Hull, which is about 30 miles from me (60 mile round trip), at list price + 20% vat. List is £98.44 so it comes out at£118.12 ($154.13 US) So it is not cheap, but by what I assume is the date code, it was made in 1988, so it has had a good life, considering it is a 10000v working cap! I have a closer supplier called Techarc, Who actually make all types of welding equipment under their own name, and also for companies like Oerlikon, wind their own transformers, and do repairs as well, They are a bit closer, and a lot easier to find, being near York, and are bound to be a bit cheaper too! They do all my electronic welder repairs, and are all round good guys and a pleasure to do business with! They will be calling me back tomorrow, so I may be going for a drive!
thanks for the comment, and for watching!

Hi All, the welder part is on back order, and this week we decided, seing as the weather was good, to deal with some trees damaged in the recent winds, sort of commando gardening!. We have a 4 Acre field just across the village from the Workshop, and this week, and next week, if dry, will be a maintenance blitz, as it is next to the road, and fallen trees tend to interfere with traffic! please like, comment and subscribe!

And Now, due to Keiths wife having a seroius heart condition (although you wouldn't think it when you see her work) and my wife having Asthma, we are self isolating from each other, so the fencing and completion of the field work will be at a later date! Normal workshop style stuff will contine as long as we are well, I can isolate myself there!

Hi people,
During last weeks work on the fallen trees, I discovered that my chainsaw, an antique Stihl 08S, would not start, here is the tale of me fixing it, and then fixing it again! Many thanks to "The Repair Specialist" whose youtube vids put right my mistake! Enjoy, subscribe, and above all, stay healthy!

Hi all,
Not done much due to the virus lockdown, I bet all the survivalists in the USA are rolling around their bunker floors, surrounded by food, laughing their heads off! I did get a day and a half in the workshop, made a cold frame for my daughters roof garden, she was pleased with the solid practical construction, but thought the aesthetics left a lot to be desired! Teenagers! There's no pleasing them! Like, comment, subscribe, enjoy! We live in "interesting" times.
