Lathe work?


#1

Do we still have the lathe and if so are there occasional training
sessions? I’ll eventually need the heads of some metric coachbolts
turning down so they fit into imperial-sized holes on a bell headstock -
see the hole below the (broken) wooden stay in this picture for an example:

Thanks,

It’s still possible to get imperial fixtures if needed. I think most of the
people who know how to use the lathe might currently be out of town.

Yeah, but they are difficult to source and tend to be a lot more expensive

There’s no immediate rush, the wrong bolts have been in there and in the
wrong way for many, many years - the whole installation dates from 1923 :slight_smile:

Yes we have the lathe. I am currently putting together training, which
should start later this year (hopefully).

Cool, I’ll look out for the announcement, I assume it will be on this list?

Thanks,

On here, in telegram, on the wiki, anywhere else useful.
