More Features

Well we have more features,

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Enjoy your use of the site, stay safe, keep to social distance if you are visiting colleagues to pick up a new toy.
  4. A new guide on the form submission page has been added to help people avoid mistakes they get their advert removed, we are sorry that some adverts are lost due to this but if people do not read, we cannot guide them.

For Sale: Drytex Extraction Unit 3-Phase

Sun 31st Oct '21

Advert ID: 40847

Machines (Large Tooling)
Used (Correct working)
Details:
I bought this extraction unit to use with a J&S cylindrical grinder only to find it was not necessary. It is the type of unit that, I believe, was commonly supplied with J&S surface grinding machines although it can be used for the extraction of any type of debris, including sawdust and sand etc. The adjustable rigid collection arm, shown in the photographs, can be easily replaced by a flexible tube for direct connection to a machine's extraction hood, in fact I have a length of suitable tubing that can go with the device if I can find it.
I have tested the extractor on a 3-phase rotary converter and it functions as intended. The item is listed on another auction site with a higher 'buy-it-now' price but a HWS member can have it at the price shown here. It should fit into an estate car (can't say about a hatchback) or small van on collection. It is located near Market Rasen in the middle of Lincolnshire,

Hi all
I am currently looking to buy a set of wooden engineers tool drawers like the one Gerstner made, I toyed with the idea of buying the a new sealey set but the reviews of them are that they are poorly made.
I believe union made a good set and also Neslien so if anybody out there has a set in good condition that they would be willing to part with please get in touch.
Or if you know of a modern made set that are of decent quality then please let me know also as it may be a brand I have overlooked.

This item is a set of unmachined cast iron cylinder castings for a GWR 2-6-2 Class 51XX or 61XX Prairie Tank Locomotive in 5" gauge to the Trevor Shortland design. A J Reeves sell the castings and drawings for this model but for some reason don't list the cylinders so if you are building, or fancy building, this model this could be just what you're looking for. It is a super detailed model and these cylinders are probably the most detailed castings I have ever seen in 5" gauge. The cylinders also form the smokebox saddle, as per prototype, and all steam and exhaust passageways are cored into the casting. Having looked at the casting list on the Reeves website
Detailed cylinder and valve liners and covers are still available from Reeves.
