  1. forget using the argon set on that ben I doubt it`d have it...
  2. just a thought Steve when sanding/profiling curves in timber where you have 2 sides to do ...it may be better to fix both pieces together flat using a designated straight edge as your datum...then profiling em both at once....to match em up...

  5. I'm sure it isn't an archdale And it isn't an Asquith or a Fred town Like I says....I'm going for an ALFRED HERBERT....but Tony at lathesUK has asked me to send pics so he can consult his references I've got a G. Herbert donkeysaw (pre RAPIDOR MANCHESTER) And a nice old south Bend lathe...a really good substantial one I've a pillar drill that stands 7ft high and a couple of bench grinders....plus a horizontal miller All lineshaft gear
  6. Mr Fenner has a camelback drill In fact he gives a good tutorial on flat belt lacing/stapling on one of his utube vids I've got a staple setter for flat belts by the way....
  7. I can't find a makers name on it But I have seen old images of a similar headstock arrangement on an ALFRED HERBERT coventry
  8. Theres no drilling damage anywhere on the table...which would suggest a life set up for jigwork Took nearly 3 hours to get it back to leeds I've made Tony at lathesUK aware of its existence
  9. And what was in that factory (I'm reliably informed) was this: As you can see it's a radial drill to run off an old lineshaft arrangement and is part of my private collection. I got it from Winchester and was informed it had originally been installed at Thornycroft's Basingstoke factory. I have this piece down as 1900-1920
  10. so.. how did you ensure both them arms were in line? pre scribe for square on the lathe?
  11. There were a chekko lathe recently on eBay ...I nearly bought it That were down Norfolk I don't think it sold I've also got that small drills big brother...I'll bung a pic or three in when I get time
  12. It was a mildly sexist comment I were making ☺😯☺
  13. nice to see a rollorbox wasn`t involved
  14. run some solder across the whole of the contact area theres enough cross sectional area available here to stiffen it all up...
  15. I`v got a Lister SR1 with quite a bit of discolouration on the bore it also had a broken ring....and there was a bit of rough where the gudgeon pin was....(sat in a farmers field for 20 odd years) I just wiped it all out by hand with some 1000 grade & oil in a crosshatch pattern discolouration is still there and there`s a bit of pitting where the rough was but it'll live to fight another day its all about how you feel it'll cope.....then just go with it...
  16. may be of interest to Steve http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/hootflipflopandfly/m.html?item=252402495424&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 local to him as well (Leicester)
  17. but it demonstrates the demise....and subsequent resurrection of the vehicle....does it not I think it OK to manufacture and use new looking components...where needed. To artificially `age` something in order to `blend in` would be fakery... just a thought mind you...
  18. How are you getting the 3 phase? is it coming in from the DNO or are you artificially creating L2 & L3 with capacitors?
  19. Just wanted to say to the Devon team to keep at it....definite progress being made and great to see I`m currently on with a few projects of my own...nothing military...just some Petter & Lister diesels that I`m restoring I may start a thread on em in non-topics
  20. yep. plenty of water on it during cutting...at a slow, steady speed with a steady pressure applied during cutting L. S. STARRETT make what I consider to be the best holesaws....I use em regularly to cut out holes for downlights (I`m an electrical contractor) DART are good n all..
  21. this is where a MAG drill/rotabroach would have been better Steve
