    For Sale Workshop Clear Out Part 2 - Books

    These have been sat in my bookcase for some years now without being read so it's time for them to go off to new owners. Most of these will go large letter postage singularly but some are slightly too thick and so have given a separate price for them. I can combine postage if more than one is...

    Can you make a DC motor run more quietly?

    These are some good suggestions! I'm not sure what you mean by "showing"? I hadn't thought of a belt drive at all. The motor needs to run at around 18rpm. I did pick up this high torque motor as I thought it needs to be able to rotate a millers falls drill, so the motor is attached to the drill...

    Can you make a DC motor run more quietly?

    I did take the gearbox apart yesterday and run the motor without the gearbox on and it is a noisy motor. This was a cheap motor from china as the speed I need to run this automata at 18 RPM. Trying to find one in this country I wasn't able to find anything. This was baterry powered as well but...

    Can you make a DC motor run more quietly?

I've tried opening up the gearbox and spreading the grease around, boxing the motor in and even running the motor at 3 volts and still this loud drone is very...

    Wanted Coronet 3 Lathe Small Tool Rest

    I currently have an additional short tool rest for my coronet 3 lathe that I suspect isn't for my lathe as while it is a good fit it still slips down and seems to be getting worse. This isn't due to dust getting in the banjo slot either. In short I'm looking for a tool rest which has a rest...

    Any ideas on what this might have been?

    A fellow artist dug this up from her garden and gave it to me with a load of other rusty metal objects. One end is threaded and the the hole on the other side is too. Any suggestions?

    These 3 books might be of use to a fellow wood worker who is thinking of maybe making a dolls house for their grandchildren. The character book even contains plans on building your own pub or cider barn so there's something for adults too. Also there is a working water mill with built in...

    any carvers on here...

    That screams AI at me without even watching it. The size of the walnut grain on the base compared to the rest of the dinosaur. Either the dinosaur is tiny or it's AI. I chose the latter.

    101 uses for a hot melt glue gun.

    I use hot glue for a lot of my miniature art work. If you pull it as it cools it becomes hair, if you stab at it, it becomes foliage in a garden or boots and feet for my tiny carved figures if you shape it on e it has a skin over it. You burn your fingers a lot of the time though 😂 Some photos...
