For Sale: Tripan holders for Colchester

Mon 30th Oct '17

Advert ID: 31257

Tools
Details:
I have three tool holders made by Tripan specifically for Colchester. The fit a size 2 Colchester square block, not the regular Tripan wedge style. Two are type 750 primarily for boring, but will also take sliding tools. One is type 755 for holding 30mm rounds (or less with adapters) along the axis of the lathe. They are in good condition, but with some age related marking. Screws are all present, except one out of three on the 755 which I'm unsure about - the outer two clamp, the middle one is a grub screw, possibly intentionally to ease the release of the tool.

I have a picture, though it doesn't seem to have uploaded yet.

I'm not sure about these Colchester variants, but the normal Tripan change hands for more than I'm asking, which is £50 each, or make me an offer. Postage will be extra at cost depending on how many you want.

Steamplates.co.uk now have a range of comfy Tractor Saddles deliberately cast non-make or model specific.

They're perfect for the Grey Fergie owner tired of the steel seat bottiom rotting out, and just as suitable for miniature driving truck builders!

The Saddles are supplied in Aluminium, Cast Iron, Brass and Bronze and need only minor fettling, unless you feel the urge to polish them, in which case they look fantastic!

Prices £80 - £195 but only good for 7 days from the date of this item due to the volatility of the metal and energy markets.

For Sale: Cast Iron Stove

Mon 30th Oct '17

Advert ID: 31253

General
See all ads from Steve Sparrow
Details:
Steamplates.co.uk now have a Cast Iron Stove to add to their growing Castings inventory - The 'Little Warmer'.

The Castings only need fettling after a mininal amount of machining to fit the door. The heavy Cast Iron tray ensures that any dropped embers stay safe, and the entire thing (around 60Kgs according to my back!) forms a dense thermal mass to release stored heat long after the fire has gone out. The castings are very thick to ensure long life.

Give it a coat of Black Stove paint, hook it all up to a suitable flue then you're in business, and more than a little warmer into the bargain.

The Stove is ideal for Workshops, Boats, Narrowboats, Greenhouses etc. and will burn any solid fuel within reason. You could even put one into a room in your House.

Notice the thoughtful Kettle/Teapot/Mug space right on top!

Sold only as requiring DIY finishing - all installation regulations must be adhered to on installation and are the buyer's responsibility.

£495.00 plus p&p, collection in person by prior arrangement is free of course.

For Sale: Lathe, Drummond (for restoration)

Sun 29th Oct '17

Advert ID: 31248

Tools
Details:
First, I am very sorry to read about John's passing.

*****

Lathe, Drummond Flat-Bed, probably 'B'-type or slightly earlier , with original cast-iron stand.

With chucks & faceplate, plus some change-wheels.

The bed is a bit battered but appears fairly true, though the leadscrew is badly worn near the head end, and the projecting rear of the spindle seems to have suffered a lot of abuse.

No motor, nor treadle, and someone long ago amputated the rear journals for the treadle - though replacements could be fabricated.

Really, a restoration project, needing much TLC - I was going to mount a Coventry Die-head on the T-slotted cross-slide, and fit a spindle handle, to use it purely for manual threading, but space and time are more important now!

Can e-post photos - have been unable to add photos here in the past!

Collection only, from Weymouth area, but could negotiate hand-over at a bona-fide address near Cheddar (my caving-club) or for the fuel cost, deliver to reasonable distance.

Clearly used, some plating issues, and the ball on the end of the handle is in a bit of a state, but indexes as it should and is very solid.

75mm square, 45mm overall height, 20mm slot height.

Wanted: Imperial taper pins/reamer

Fri 27th Oct '17

Advert ID: 31223

Tools
Details:
I have bought some 3/32" x 2" taper pins, and a 3/32" taper pin reamer.

The problem I have is that the cutting edges on the reamer are only 1 - 1/4" long.

Does anyone know if longer length reamers are available and if so where? Or have one they would like to sell?

From the web I have seen 3/32" taper pins available up to 2 - 1/2" long in mild steel. Does anyone have or know where I could get some hardened and ground 3/32" x 2", or 2 - 1/4" long taper pins, or alternatively a 1/8" x 3" ?

I know a lot of the suppliers will supply hardened and ground to order, but I only need a few, 10 at the most should do

Many thanks

Advert ID: 31208

Tools
Details:
Here we have an oxy/propane brazing / silver soldering unit manufactured in 1975 by Microflame (Now Probitts Engineering) of Diss in Norfolk. This is designed for fine high temperature work such as model engineering or jewellery making.
The kit comprises a small high pressure (2000 psi) oxygen cylinder and a propane cylinder in a carrying frame, together with an oxygen regulator, flexible gas tubing, connectors and a twin valve burner with a selection of interchangeable nozzles, including one of an ingenious design with twin opposing nozzles.
This is sold for spares or repair as the oxygen cylinder requires pressure testing, certifying and oxygen cleaning before it can be refilled. Alternatively, the burner and nozzles could be connected to modern oxygen and propane sources.
