    3. [list i] for roman numbers
  2. For Sale and Wanted Adverts by traders that have paid for the service will be in trade green and be listed first for 3 days after which time the will follow the normal sorting order.
  3. Sorted the issue with hotmail, live and outlook blocking emails.
  4. Image size increased to 1920 x 1920 and max size of 10MB. They are plenty of free tools to resize to that size, so if you can't be bothered to resize one, we can't be bothered to list it.
    Use resizeimage.net or www.picresize.com to help, you can even use them from your phone.

  8. The forum has gone. Due to coding issues more of the forum was failing and, now that we encrypt personal data, led to issues that we cannot fix, as the people that made the forum software are no longer around.

    Information: Electric Welder fault - Pickhill Bantam

    Tue 18th Sep '18

    See all ads from Gary Of Ashfield
    Details:
    I have an old oil filled electric welder - 180A Pickhill Bantam. When plugged in, it humms and eventually blows the fuse - so it is drawing excess current even without welding. There aren't any earth faults ie no earth current, so I believe there is an inter-turn fault in the either the primary or secondary winding. I have drained the oil and visually inspected the wiring with nothing obvious.
    So the question is how to locate the fault?

    I am at work most days, so please reply on the HW site.

    Wanted: Small Accurate Lathe

    Mon 17th Sep '18

    Advert ID: 33649

    Details:
    Exchange sought. Bormilathe and Myford M7 for Lathe.
    I have a Murad Bormilathe together with most of its original tools and the period literature advertising it together with original literature for other Murad manufactured items. I also have a Myford M7 lathe which is serviceable but quite worn.
    I would like to exchange both for a small accurate lathe and tooling, with screw cutting capability. I would prefer not to sell these and then hunt round for a lathe to suit my needs as I am not particularly knowledgeable. I’m not looking for tool room precision however something that is accurate larger and better than an M7. If you think you’ve got something that I could use and are interested in the 2 items I’ve got to exchange then please do not hesitate to contact me.

    See all ads from Nigel Graham
    Details:
    Compact bench-top pantograph engraver, by Scripta of Paris.

    Photos: Sorry - have never succeeded in placing them on this site.

    Unfortunately it has lost its motor (fits the spindle head directly) and copy! Also the copy-holder does not look original. One collet in spindle - no others with it.

    If proper parts are unobtainable I'd considered adapting an old battery drill motor with suitable PSU (e.g. ex-computer).

    Table size 400 X 26mm, flat with a few tapped holes for copy-holder and work-piece clamps. No dovetail slots or T-slots, just grooves to assist alignments. Has rubber feet for simply standing the machine on a bench.

    Pantograph: fixed ratio, with friction-wheel in groove on the round column for fine height adjustment. Easily lifted from column for transport - or to use the table as a surface-plate with handy indicator-arm column!

    Slight surface rust in places, but not serious.

    Awkward shape and weight so Buyer Collect please - this negotiable, and can arrange meeting at bona-fide address near Cheddar (or poss. Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition - maybe even in NW Yorkshire if no hurry!).

    Ex-school workshop equipment, this FlameFast CM350 Crucible Furnace has had an easy life and is in very good condition.
    It runs off natural gas, but apparently it's a straightforward job to swap the jet to run it with propane.
    The latest model of these are for sale now on the Axminster website for £1,400.
    The furnace is bolted to the tray and can be easily broken down for transport. The dimensions of the tray are approximately 1200mm x 800mm and the overall height is 700mm.
    Can't run this to test as we live in an area without natural gas supply, but it was working fine in the school and removed carefully.

    Information: Electronic advice - SCR motor speed control

    Sat 15th Sep '18

    Advert ID: 33630

    General
    Details:
    I have just bought a typical SCR motor speed control board, the type where a diac switches a triac and a potentiometer controls the speed.

    I would like to adapt it so it turns off fully, using a switched pot. to control it.

    I do not want to switch the triac itself as the full motor load, circa. 450w, will be too much for the switch on the pot.

    Can I do this by putting the switch between the output of the diac and the gate of the triac?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    I recently acquired a small Rothenberger brazing set with empty gas and oxygen canisters.I have managed to get a maxigas refill for what I thought was a quite expensive price until I saw the price of the oxygen canister which varies between £35 and £45! Although it states the canister cannot be refilled is there anyone who can do this or is there a cheaper source of new canisters?

    Details:
    I've been asked to dispose of a 2 stroke diesel scale model Field Marshall tractor, built in the 70's and the modellers wife wants to sell it, but I've no idea what it is worth. Any guidance would be welcome, and if anybody is interested, please let me know.

    It appears to be 1" scale, judging from the model dimensions, and won first price at a mid 70's Midlands Model exhibition.

    Apparently, the modeller took all the dimensions from a scrap tractor in a field, and built it from scratch.

    Everything worked last time it was run, (many years ago), and I haven't run it, but if you know what needs to be done then you could run it before you buy.

    As I said, any guidance at all on pricing it is welcome

One of the two large brass (300mm dia) dividing plates is signed Thos Green Liverpool. This is a substantial machine (20kg) made from beech, steel and brass. In unrestored condition and I believe to be about 90% complete. This is very rare and really belongs in a museum or specialised collection.
