Well it seems someone tried to force their way into the server and set off the watchdog, which in it's rush to hide pulled the power cord out.

No we did have someone try to get in but the intrusion protection system kicked in and stopped all outside access to protect your data, well what little we keep of it.

See all ads from Ashley Slater
Details:
HI some years ago I aquired quite a few chasers for a half inch Alfred Herbert die head, having found them again I'd like to buy a head to give them a try. The boxes are clearly marked for a half inch die head so if anybody has one they would like to sell give me a call or e mail. I intend to use it on my lathe I assume this is a sensible approach it has a 3 morse taper tail stock. If anybody has instructions that could be useful I'm at the bottom of the learning curve with this one.
Thanks Ashley.

For Sale: Breaking: Old J&S 540 surface grinder

Thu 25th May '17

Advert ID: 29904

General
See all ads from Pete Rimmer
Details:
I have a very (very) old Jones and Shipman 540 surface grinder which is going for scrap. It's a very early model with the huge iron counterweight on the back, belt drive pump and it has no fine cross feed (too early).

The ways are hugely worn and banana shaped so there are no wearing parts (main casting, cross-slide, table) worth having. This is why it's going for scrap.

The old 3 phase spindle motor runs and is re-wired in delta for VFD but the insulation is a bit ropey so if it catches fire and burns down your shop it's your fault not mine.

The hydraulics in the base are working but tend to leak oil.
The valve block and related hydraulic gubbins on the cross slide are leaky but functional and the auto-feed and auto-reverse system works.

Other than that it's junk.

There is no mag chuck, no wheelhead and no wheel arbors. These are all gone.

If anyone needs any other part that they think I might have please get in touch ASAP. All parts are free to collect. Really I'm just posting this in case there's someone out there with a rebuild on their hands who could perhaps use the hydraulics on the cross-slide as it would be hard to find those bits.
There is nothing on this machine as far as I know that will fit the newer 540's with the head that runs on ground bars.

Please don't ask me to post stuff if you want any bits they are free just come and get them.

Pete.

Details:
This is a complete run of the Engineering periodical from 1885 to 1910 inclusive. Weekly, and bound 6 months to a volume so 52 volumes.

Each volume is about 644 pages plus the added in indicies when bound. Each volume weighs about 3.8kg.

They are complete as far as I know, no missing pages noted when I read through them.

Includes lots of writing about that particular week, mostly unimportant unless you want to know what the imports were or reports from various societies. Of more interest are the general articles and the many illustrations, each week usually includes a large, double page, engraving.

My storage fire safe is being taken so these have to go. Note that collection is essential, near Grantham off the A1, due to weight.

Details:
This mill was in use at the Vale of Berkeley Railway workshops until a couple of months ago, but purchase of a much larger mill means that we no longer have the space for it (and we have a Bridgeport which is very similar). The Induma takes 30 INT tooling and is offered with quite a bit of tooling, including 2 Autolock chucks, a drill chuck and shell mill holder. The table movements are very smooth over the full range of travel. Unfortunately the table feed motor was damaged while it was being moved and needs repair or replacement.
We have a telehandler on site and can help with loading.

Wanted: Black Bakelite Rod

Sun 21st May '17

Advert ID: 29864

Materials
Details:
I'm restoring a very old piece of electrical test equipment which has black knobs on the front panel. Several of these are damaged or missing, and I wish to machine up replacements to match the ones still there.

So I'm looking for some stubs of the correct 'vintage' material.

I believe this was called 'Bakelite' and basically it's a thermosetting plastic. (Most plastics these days, such as nylon or acetal, are thermoplastic, not thermosetting).

I've also tried Tufnol but it looks awful.

Does anybody out there have any of this material lying under their bench, or know of a likely source?

The biggest of these knobs is just less than 2" diameter by 1.5" long and the smallest just less than 1" diameter. Plus a bit for for holding in the chuck!

Thanks,
