    A plea to Steve Maskery

    Many thanks for that Steve. I have got it working properly with a half inch 4tpi blade now, still having problems with a 5/8 3 tip but mayne it can't tension that enough.

    And the stock answer to that is get a new blade from Tuffsaws...... Which is what is on it :)

    A plea to Steve Maskery

    No CD player. I used to use the one in my iMac but have a new one and they don't have a built in CD any more.

    A plea to Steve Maskery

    I am having big problems with my bandsaw cutting straight after changing the top tire and the blade. Pretty sure it is my fault as I have been fiddling with the adjuster wheel that controls the amount of forward or backward tilt on the top wheel. I have Steve's set of bandsaw CDs but no longer...

    Ticking noise coming from motor CL4

    My 18 month old Jet 3520b was doing that. I phoned Axi and they sent out a mechanic to change the inverter box. Solved the problem.

    Axminster SK114 variant question

    Indeed. it is the vanilla version, the T38. I have to say that I have often wished I had paid the extra for the T38R as the chuck can easily 'unwind' when using cole jaws or even a heavy piece of wood ( centrifugal force and all that )...... but it seems I couldn't have anyway, :)

    Axminster SK114 variant question

    The two holes 'in the face of the chuck' are actually at the bottom of two of the jaw slide areas. There is a grub screw in each hole when you buy it which tighten down onto the shoulder of the spindle. There are 3 problems with this. 1, They only work if you drill a small recess for them to...

    Axminster SK114 variant question

    Thats the whole silliness of it. The locking system is unuseable. I had assumed that was why the T38R was made at an extra £20 on the price but presumably you are saying that they haven't actually made it ?

    Axminster chucks; Evolution SK114 vs. Clubman SK100...

    As an afterthought, what lathe are you going to use it on ? the evolution would look out of place on a mini lathe. :)
