I want to change my Elliot boring head to fit 40 int, ideally with a 5/8" drawbar thread. For those that don't know it requires a 7/8" spigot with a Woodruff key and tapped for a 5/16" BSF LH retaining bolt; not that the bolt is the most important feature, any reasonable thread would do. Anyone got such an arbor lurking that they want to part with for sensible money?

Does anyone have a Delapena cylinder hone that will do a 78mm diameter cylinder that they would like to sell to me. I need one to hone a vintage motor bike cylinder. It has to be a delapena or one that works the same way. The sprung loaded three legged variety that are quite common are no good, as they will not hone a bore straight or round, they will only resurface the bore not correct it

Drawings for 2 inch Plastow Fowler DCC Showman Traction Engine (Princess)

Hi there,
I am hoping that there is someone out there, with, ideally, a Full Set (preferably) of Drawings for the 2 inch Plastow Fowler Princess Showmans Engine.

I believe that the full set comprises of 16 drawings, broken down as 9 drawings for the Engine including the Canopy…with an additional 7 drawings for “Additional Details” for this Showmans Engine.

I have just recently taken on a part-built engine, which was started over 35 years ago…by the father of a friend of mine. Unfortunately we could only find a couple of the drawings…
…which, sadly, are so badly faded as to be virtually un-readable.

Now…my eyesight isn’t as good as it once was…so in an ideal world, I am really looking for a set, in which the detail, and dimensions, can still all be made out.

In addition, if there was anyone who could not only supply me with the set of drawings…but also help me by letting me know about any drawing “errors” or omissions…(as I am “aware” that there are anomalies in the drawings.)…then I would be very grateful.

Please contact me by email to let me know what you have got…and the price please.

Many Thanks,
Adrian Nicolson (Neebs)

General
Details:
This is a very effective British made motor offered at a low price. Ideal for someone working to a tight budget requiring a good quality motor for a lathe or other machine. The motor is some years old and is very well made and runs very quietly and sweetly without vibration. It is reversible.
Crompton Parkinson ¼ HP split phase motor 1440 rpm resiliently mounted in a cradle and has been PAT tested. The cradle has four fixed 5/16” studs, one at each corner and an array of useful holes along each side. With some small pieces of angle iron and a bit of ingenuity this motor can easily be made to fit any small machine such as a lathe of drill. It has a ½” diameter shaft and comes with a 3” diameter pulley for a Z section V belt.
I prefer that buyers call to collect the motor so they can see exactly what it is like and witness electrical safety testing.
£15 collected or carriage to be paid at cost by the purchaser.

For Sale: Rare Myford MF-36.M Lathe for restoration

Tue 30th Sep '14

Advert ID: 20767

Tools
Details:
I have one of these which was dismantled and put away when I got married 18 years ago. It's described on Tony Griffith's site (lathes.co.uk) as the "Myford Four Inch Precision lathe" from the early 40s. I gather that only around 20 of this 36" bed model were ever made, and only one or two seem to have survived. If you look at the details on the page on Tony's site this one has the pressed steel stand/chip-tray with integral countershaft mount and front-mounted countershaft tensioner wheel, so it's probably one of the very last they made.

It includes the usual accessories - fixed and travelling steadies, various gears for the alternative leadscrew speeds, the original spindle drip-oilers a single phase motor and switchgear etc. I only ever used a chinese 3-jaw chuck with it, although I think there might be an original 4-jaw one in the box as well.

It has suffered some corrosion in storage (mainly on the parts that were removed like the chucks, tailstock and saddle) and frankly I was considering scrapping it and canibalising some of the parts, but several people have suggested it would be an act of vandalism to scrap such a rare lathe without seeing if there was someone who would want to restore it!

I'm open to offers - either cash or useful things that people might have going spare(tools, a rotary table, boring heads, milling vices - anything considered) - the £150 cited below is only there to indicate it's not free because it's worth something to me as parts. I think it's unlikely it would fit in the postbox so this would be collection only.

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 anti backlash ballscrews which cost £400 alone, 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 includes angled and flat vices, toolholding and a selection of tooling to get you started.

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 excluding highland and islands for £75.

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"
