You know how sometimes you think of something then sometime later you are doing something else and you think why don’t I do it like I did that …. read on how gripping screws in the lathe and gripping depth discs on drills came together.
I love the Record Imp table vice. They are readily available on EBay and worthy of a loving home.
Read how I renovated one and added slot in soft jaws in aluminium and then via Fusion 360 modelled a 3D printed set in PLA.
I picked this Devon Sea Clock in a non working condition but nice and clean and well made. After some external support it is finally ticking away nicely. Timing is still not quite right but I have the Microset on it to see what is happening. There is definitely a wobble on the escape wheel that needs fixing.
Finally got round to doing my website and blog with a view to sharing my various hobby interests and general things we get up to in retirement.
Here you will find more details on mechanical engineering, live steam locomotives, DIY, golf, growing veg and not least spending time in France.
