Thread: Was it better value?
08/09/2010 20:09:43
I have recently been looking at some old  Pratical Wood Working circa 1978 cost 50p.
 
It had eight projects to do plus other articles and previews,
What I liked it was produced on a monthly basis! not on this four weekly period favoured by  Good Woodworking. a clever merchantising  /marketing plan to get 13 instead of 12 subscriptions for the year!
 
 A Dewalt band saw giving 6in cut 12in throat was a healthy £273-24 a radial saw  was £385-56.
 
 Was it better value food for thought

 Very impressive, are you a "toxophilite" or did you just do the wood work, anyway it's right on target,
 
Well done George
Thread: Where can I get this?

 You are correct , you can get a chuck that moves the jaws  individually , and also simultaneously. , the one I looked at is made in the Punjab by Jagdev Machine Tools,  but it looked as if it was more for engineering the jaws could be adjusted to hold an odd shaped component . rather than off center turning.
 
You learn something new every day,
 
  Thank you Richard..

 I had that happen, I think I pressed the button marked ctrl instead of button to print a capital.
 If that makes sense but I am no computor wizard  George

I think you will find that a combination chuck is what we now call a scroll chuck, that takes all the accessories, and holds in compression and  expansion, I don't think you can get a chuck that is adjustable on each jaw, as well as self centering as a scroll chuck,
 
 I can of course be wrong, that would not be the first time.

Are you incinerating that Sparky's information is incorrect, I must agree  about it not being echo-friendly, the wood ash could be recycled on the garden as potash so long as it is only clean wood that is burnt.
 
 Did you ever come across the Salamander heater that used old oil for the fuel? I think that was even less friendly.

In Axminster catalogue on page 555 the very thing under the name of Carver Vice Arbor for £19-99 , but it does not have the index head that yours has got using the old shaft,
 
A good idea but already on the market
 
Sorry Ron another missed opportunity to make your fortune

Welcome Richard
 
 You don't say what chuck you have now  or what you don't like about it, if you go on WWW.axminster,co.uk you will find loads of chucks , with a wide range of jaws, I have a Multistar Titan which is a good chuck , it depends how much you wish to spend, but the choice is endless.

Recently  I have had some terrible gravy out , I had pie and chips and the gravy was  a thick brown multi purpose liquid that could have been used to paint the garden furniture , or on a cold day used for a replacement for tarmac .   twice that happened luckily I ask for the gravy on its own the second time so I was able to avoid having it over every thing in a coagulated mess.

His hands look safe. but where is the mask and dust extractor cutting stone is a very messy dusty job . his footwear dosn't look up to safety regulation either. and no hard hat! or ear defenders.

 Been away for a few days, so a bit late with my comments, I agree with Richard  my choice is the fruit it shows off  the use of colour, but there are some nice pieces on show, congratulation  the club  looks as if it is going from strength to strength.
Richard the club I go to is 15 miles away, but I don't get there as often as I would like.

Glad you found a use for the shaft, I actually had 3 shafts , that's another story, so I still have one to make a similar set up if I require, good idea I have welding gear so can add a box section.

The shape looks alright to me, if you had made the base smaller it would completely change the shape, good effort  was it on the new lathe??
