Re: Another MoFo

I usually use tygris r214 cutting and tapping fluid for most things, either that or wd40 in a pinch. It's crap for steel but fine for aluminum. I also use the drill press when tapping, stick the tap in the chuck and turn it by hand. hold down the handle to put the required downward force on the tap ...

Re: what are you doing ?

Got some work done while having to dodge the rain, then when it was abit too much to be working outside, got the accounts up to date. Then did a bit of research on the me95 cart I got. The replacement stylus according to mantra audios website is the shure ndc ej type. Only about 30 quid for a generi...

Re: what are you doing ?

Got the lenco I bought today, the ortofon is a vms3 and the other one was a shure, not a v15, but actually something reasonable, an me95ed It's at least worth hunting out a new stylus for it. The plinth is a load of old shite, it has what to all appearances appears to be a large plastic seed tray st...

Re: The Other 13E1 SE-OTL

That's a nice bit of wood, daft thing is, that a piece like that from a hardwood supplier is properly silly money Those boards are already thicknessed to 20mm so it's one less process to have to do to the blank, you can just select the area you want on display and cut it accordingly. Hardwood prices...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Cool I went to my local engineering place on Friday for some bits and pieces and I was talking to the guy who does powder coating for them. He's got a unit on the same estate so he gets loads of business from the firms on there, and does wheels ect. He was saying that he's done more old bike frames ...

Re: what are you doing ?

Nope, that's a cheap one. they go for silly money. People are wanting many hundreds for reasonable ones There was another on at 150 starting bid that looked completely shot, rusted arm, the top of the spindle was rusty, and the paint was bubbling.

Re: what are you doing ?

Went out running for the first time since lock down, got back several minutes later than usual, and was puffing and blowing like a 20 a day smoker.... 5k should not be so hard, but I haven't been out since March so I suppose it's not surprising.
