Details:
I'm looking to repair an old voltmeter that has a missing pointer. So I'm looking for a piece of the ultra thin walled ali tube some 50 mm long. Two lengths would be ideal as I'm sure I won't get it right first time. The outside diameter needs to be 1.38 mm or there abouts.
If anyone has some or knows of a source I'd be most interested to hear from them.

If anyone contacts me by email please make sure the "r" is in the middle of the address otherwise my dopple ganger in Scotland will get it instead of me.

For Sale: CNC converted Warco Minor mill with PC - Full setup

Mon 29th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20764

Tools
Details:
Here is my Warco Minor minning machine that has been converted to CNC using proper ballscrews and nuts, hi torque motors and a quality controller.
Its the full setup with controller and PC with screen running turboCNC. It will run Mach3 but i need my licence for my new bigger machine.
It works flawlessly and is an ideal entry into CNC as it has a large capacity - unlike the common small 'toy' machines, its also a great upgrade if you have one of the tiny CNC's.

Its now taking up room in my house as there is no room in the workshop thanks to my upgrade so its up for sale. While i would prefer collection (its heavy) and comes apart to just managable pieces i can break it down and ship carefully packed on a pallet with the computer parts sent suitably packaged with Parcelforce for safety. It can be shipped UK ecluding highland and islands for 75 pounds.

Information: Fake Mitutoyo Digital Callipers on eBay

Sun 28th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20756

Tools
Details:
Having recently been "conned" myself, I warn others to beware of bargain priced Mitutoyo digital callipers on eBay (and maybe elsewhere) coming from China. The callipers are advertised as Mitutoyo part 500-196-20 6 inch digital callipers. They look just like the real thing, and come in convincing packaging, together with instructions, test certificates etc. However, in the case of the counterfeit items, more careful examination shows they fake. In particular the display only shows 3 digits, not 4, after the decimal point in Inch mode, the number on the test certificate does not match that on the calliper, the button functions are not quite right, and the batteries supplied are cheap alkaline Chinese items, not Mitutoyo brand silver oxide parts. There are other giveaways which are listed if you search on Google for "fake Mitutoyo callipers". Since it's a real pain returning items and getting a refund from China (ask me how I know) I would urge potential buyers to avoid Chinese sellers of the 500-196-20 item. Mitutoyo has replaced this part with the 500-196-30 calliper, which has better resistance to contamination, and (so far) has not been counterfeited. So for peace of mind, look for this product. The old adage applies: "if it looks too good to be true, it probably is"

For Sale: 5" Gauge Marie E Type Tender Locomotive

5" Gauge Marie E Type Tender locomotive (American outline) for sale. It has current hydraulic and steam boiler certificates (expire 2015 and 2016). A very clean and tidy locomotive. There is a chip on one of the driving wheels. It goes well in forward, I think the valve timing needs looking at in reverse though. Price reflects these idiosyncrasies. It looks to be a well made and looked after locomotive (and tender). It has a full cab. Overall length (including tender) 37".

Well worth viewing. More photos available.

Hi

I'm looking for a straight edge to help me scrape some high spots off a machine table.

I've already got one of the narrow type (1/4" wide), but could do with something with a wider contact.

I suspect I need either a 'camel back' or I beam type or perhaps a granite one.

Either way, looking for a one that's at least an inch wide and around 24" long.

Information: Square thread leadscrew nuts

Wed 24th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20725

General
Details:
Hi all,

the age old question of replacing or repairing lead screw nuts with a square thread form has arisen again for me. I am rebuilding a Portas Dreadnought with worn bronze nuts and want to take out the wear. I have no idea about machining an internal square thread and I am not sure if a tap can be had to do the job or if that would be economical.

I have spotted Moglice on the web to recast threads in situ and wondered if anyone has any experience of using similar products or methods?

Drop me a line if you can help please.

For Sale: Centec Simple Dividing Attachment

Wed 24th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20721

Tools
Details:
I've got a Centec dividing attachment that came with my 2B, but has been sitting for the 15 years that I've owned it, I had pre-made tooling for the dividing I do, so this has just sat in a drawer since it came into my ownership.

It has 4 plates, 11, 13, 24 and 30; the 30 one has been brazed somewhere along the way. Tailstock with centre. Way keys (only one cap screw per key) It has a collet + holder, unsure of what it is. I'm not sure if the index plates are all original; the prime number ones look like steel, the 24 and 30 look like CI.

It is located here in Canada with me - we will work out the shipping, as I doubt it'll go to someone local! One sold on an on-line auction site recently for just over GBP 200, but it was located in the UK; on the other hand mine has more bits and bobs, and looks in excellent condition - not repainted, always oiled, and scraping marks on bottom are there. I've put my price at less than the UK one, to account for (probably) increased shipping costs.

I'll send along as many pictures as you wish; shipping to be arranged; we'll figure it out; I have lots of packing materiel, so the cost is only the freight.

The Story/History so far:

It would take to long to go into all the details of what gone on over the last 27 years of collecting the various castings, parts and material, below is some of the history.

Back in 1987, after looking what was on offer we decided it was going to be the design of Pete Filby, from Little Weighton near Hull, less than 100 miles from where we lived.

The first parts to be ordered was the 4 wheel rims (2 front, 2 Back) theses arrived in March 1987

We stared to save some money through the coming months and then we ordered a professionally built steel boiler from Pete Filby this came in October 1987, we have a photo of our daughter who was 5 weeks old at the time sat on the boiler with me, she's is now 27 years old, through out the coming years we started to collect the other various casting and materials.

In 2006 we had 4 tyres professionally bonded to the wheel rims at great cost.

We still have the original boiler test certificate.
With a working pressure of 170 Ibs per square inch.
Boiler was tested to 425 Ibs per square inch.

I think there's a full set of drawings, but if my memory serves me right I seem to remember that Pete Filby went in to Bankruptcy December 1987 before he completed a full set, possibly 2 missing drawing, will check later.

I think we've covers most of it.
This is not a full set of casting, a modest guess would be 80% perhaps a little higher.

Please study the photos carefully they are part of the description and should you require more photos and information then please visit our website: http://www.Houpla.co.uk or contact us accordingly, from the info supplied on this website, thank you.

Viewing by appointment, we live in Newton le Willows, that just 1 mile south of junction 23 of the M6.
Refreshment will be provided, thank you.

The Price is £3900.00 GBP.
Collection, by mutual agreement.

We are moving, so downsizing is inevitable.

Kind regards Edward.

Wanted: ATO brass wall clock bezel

Materials

Details:
This is a request to all the clocky people out there.
I'm in need of a brass bezel like the one in the pictures for an Ato electric wall clock. The important dimension is the inside diameter that fits over the dial,and which could be between 160 and 162mm.
An original bezel is about 18mm deep with a plain 45 degree bevel, but I'm sure that one of the right diameter could be modified to fit quite easily, preferably one without any fancy beading around it.
Any assistance in finding one would be greatly appreciated.
