    Clarke CL300M motor

    I’m not much of a metalworker but I’ve had one of these lathes for a number of years now. It’s very useful for making smallish bits of metal scrap into even smaller bits of metal scrap🙄. I loaned it to my brother in law a couple of years ago but have now decided to sell it. The problem is the...

    Best place for Festool spares?

    Yeah, I’ve already tried that but no difference. I’ve managed to get a replacement from Nuts & Bolts although Miles did have them they were quite a bit more expensive. Miles did have parts for my small Mafell planer/jointer though so that’s two things fixed….

    Best place for Festool spares?

    The on/off switch has failed on my domino 500 so need advice on best place to get parts for these machines? Also wondering if this is a common issue? Mine will not switch off which isn’t the safest way to be using it😱😎🤔

    Radial arm saw

    I had one, scared the hell out of me every time I tried to use it. Gave up in the end and passed it on to a friend. It’s still gathering dust in the corner of his workshop

    Cleaning Small Parts - machine restoration

    Either or to be honest, it really depends on how bad the rust imps. If it’s just surface rust I would tend to use the brush in the drill method as you can then brush the whole thing without having to reposition it in the drill

    Loads of things for cleaning metal parts up, wire brush in the pillar drill, soaking in vinegar, soaking in EvapoRust, really deep rust or pitting can be sorted a flap disc in an angle grinder or for small parts try a Dremel (or similar type of machine). I also use a polishing mop to clean up...

    BlueMiG inverter MIG settings

    Afternoon all, I have recently replaced my old SuperMIG 160 with a BlueMIG 160 Inverter MIG. It is so much easier to set up and use BUT I could really use some advice on voltage settings v metal thickness. On some 3-5mm steel it works brilliantly. However I am currently welding up a rather...
