    Wall mounted wifi controlled fan heater

    Perhaps a diesel caravan heater? Although I have a wood burning stove in my concrete sectional garage workshop there are times when I need some instant heat for a short time, or to preheat the workshop, so I invested in one similar to this - 12V 5KW-8KW Diesel Air Heater Remote Control For...

    Faithfull FPP WL36 lathe. Missing accessories and manual, help needed

    The chuck looks to be an old Record RP 3000. I don't have the instructions for it but IIRC someone on the forum does. This may help. The large circlip keeps the jaw spacing whilst an elastic band holds them together. - Record RP3000

    Joke thread

    Murphy and O'Brien go out into the woods, they come a clearing and see an abandoned well. Murphy said 'I wonder how deep that well is?' O'Brien said, 'There's one way we could figure it out'. Murphy says, 'What's that?' O'Brien says, 'We drop something down it, we time how long it takes to...

    Faithfull FPP WL36 lathe. Missing accessories and manual, help needed

    Looks like one of the single round bed bar clones similar to the Clarke CWL12D - manual attached. If so then the specs were fairly standard. A photo of both the lathe & chuck would be helpful.

    Joke thread

    In a Courtroom, the judge says to a double-homicide defendant, "You're charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer." A voice at the back of the courtroom yells out, "You bar steward!" The judge says, "You're also charged with beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer." The...

    Chuck removal

    Garno, you don't need another screw chuck as you have already got one. By removing the screw it becomes a faceplate. From memory, there should be a threaded insert, accessed from the rear, which captures the screw & stops it from rotating.

    Joke thread

    A drunken Irishman who smelled of beer sat down in an underground train, next to a priest.The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes...

    Chuck removal

    Can we start by saying that the photos show a face plate not a chuck. Whilst the comments in this thread are normally true they don't cater for a well used or even an abused machine. The amount of play on some lathe spindles has to be felt to be believed - as I had to prove to an established...

    According to my local branch they are no longer printing catalogues. Probably common knowledge but news to me.

    A painter by the name of Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to the town of Doolin in County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses. One day, a beautiful young...

    Tips & Tricks

    Bandsaw light. Even though it's fairly light in my workshop I always seem to be in my own light when using my little bandsaw. By chance I came across a 30 LED lamp on Ebay for £6, sold as a sewing machine aid. Conveniently it has a magnetic base & it's own power switch but the lead is a little...
