Updates

More Features

Well we have more features,

  1. New formatting codes added to the description field. **Bold** --Italic-- and __Underline__ will be converted to HTML5 codes Bold, Italic and Underline. You can use **__combination__** to give a **--__impact__--**. The codes will work over multiple lines so check with the preview that it is formatted correctly, you can copy the codes to make sure you have the right ones. Abuse will result in adverts being deleted.
  2. New photo upload system that will use the inbuilt camera function of phones and tablets, check the images as you need to correct the pictures if they are not rotating correctly. Bad images will be removed.
    If you are getting a blank page with just a logo the images failed. Try using a copy saved to your computer and not a webshare. The server can only use web safe jgp, gif or png images and not viseos. If you see a page with only the logo after uploading the images it faid to upload the photo due to restraints so please used saved images of less than 10MB each in that case.
  3. Web URL links have been updated to allow the newer TLD (Top Level Domains) and allow the number domains. It will now search for the links in the details text adding a https:// to any it finds to help avoid weaker links. It will also pick up typo's like no space after a full stop, so we request checking the preview of your advert and using the edit button to correct mistakes.
  4. Use correct sentience formatting rules, a space after the colon: semi-colon; comma, full stop. and exclamation! characters. URL address will use words with dots between the words without spaces and if the system sees these it will treat them as URL links. So please use the preview, it allows you access to the edit button, to change the mistakes otherwise the adverts will just be removed.
  5. NEW! logo after 10 years the tread board needed repainting, if any remember the old Green text logo might remember how the tread patten ended up becoming the background. The photos have also been upgraded to add logo's and date/time stamps to the images on upload so that the photos are noticeable for people linking to them.

For Sale: Disposal of a few Surplus Parts

Advert ID: 38765

Tools & Parts (Small tooling)
Used (Correct working)
Details:
1) 8" 4 jaw chuck, backplate mounted, suit Harrison L5 etc. ID plate missing, probably Burnerd. Screwed 1.5" x 6 tpi good used condition. Complete with chuck key £120 (the small backplate in the photo is not for sale)

2) 8" 4 jaw chuck, ex Harrison c/w logo camlock D4 fitting. Good used condition, but with a little surface rust (cosmetic) from long term storage. Sorry, no chuck key for this one. £100 (the small backplate in the photo is not for sale)

3) Fixed steady for Harrison M300. This is new/old stock - never been fitted to a lathe. Not of Harrison manufacture, I believe a place on the East Coast used to make them after Harrison stopped. For some reason I can't recall, the screws are missing, but I have a couple of dimensioned photos - if you've got the lathe, you can make your own. Similar item on ebay for over £400. Mine is £250

4) Osborn Titanic milling chuck on MT4 shank. Complete with 3 imperial collets (1/2" missing), in original box. Good used condition. £40

For Sale: Heavy Duty Swivel Castors

Sun 1st Nov '20

Advert ID: 38881

General
Excellent State (Well maintained)
See all ads from Brian Tulley
Details:
A set of four heavy duty swivel castors, with dimensions as follows:

6" High
Wheel diameter 4.75" x 1.5" wide
Baseplate is 105mm x 80mm
All swivel joints are ballraced
Nylon wheels

Two castors are fitted with brakes. These are used but are as close to new condition as makes no difference; they spent their lives supporting an 800mm wide kitchen unit filled with computer equipment, occasionally being moved about on a wood laminate floor so I could access the cables at the back. No idea of rating unfortunately, but Google suggests 125 - 150Kg per castor, so at least half a tonne for the four.

Socially distanced collection preferred (just outside M25 J25 Waltham Cross), but I will post at cost if necessary (packed weight will be in the order of 4.5Kg) - either courier or Royal Mail

Wanted: Help with cutting metric threads on an imperial lathe

Thu 29th Oct '20

Advert ID: 38867

Tools & Parts (Small tooling)
See all ads from Roy Nailor
Details:
Do you screw cut metric threads on your imperial lathe?

and ……

Does your lathe have an 8 t.p.i. lead screw, and metric conversion back gearing (or metric conversion gearbox)?

If so you will find my latest project interesting and you may be able to help me.

I’m a retired engineer whose interests include designing and making metalworking lathe accessories.

My new design is a specialised imperial to metric conversion Thread Cutting Indicator (TCI) for an 8 tpi imperial lathe that will provide correct half nut closure indications for a range of metric threads.

This is a novel device since a standard imperial TCI will only provide indications for imperial threads.

I’ve made some prototype units and am looking for help with testing them.


Can you help?, or are you interested?


If so please contact me.

Thanks for looking.

Information: Repair or replace a NuTool CH 10 Pillar Drill?

Wed 28th Oct '20

Advert ID: 38866

Machines (Large Tooling)
See all ads from Peter Cuthbert
Details:
I have a NuTool CH 10 bench drill that has done me good service over many years but is now getting to need a new NVR switch. In addition I have often found that the 6” clearance is insufficient for some of the odd things that need drilling and have had to revert to the Workmate and DeWalt cordless drill.

I am wondering if it might be worth getting a longer main pillar tube (46.2mm OD and about 41.6 ID) and a new switch to ‘upgrade’ the bench drill or should I seek a new machine with greater clearance?

The upgrade option appeals as the rest of the machine is OK and I hate scrapping kit that can be repaired. Generic replacement NVR switches are readily available, but sourcing the tube might be a problem. Ideas for that would be welcome. The alternative suggestion, a new machine in the ‘hobbyist’ bracket, is where I would also welcome suggestions. What would be a sensible buy?
