    I believe it's Arthur C. Clarke. The trick only works on the equator. Similar to synchronous satellites wich was his invention as well (or so he said!) fusker

    Cutting threads on an older TOS lathe.

    I own a medium size polish lathe, not a TOS though but an Andrychowska (year 1952 AFAIR). I believe they are similar in many respects. I have copied the manual (including a comprehensive thread chart) and will mail it if you're interested. Send me a PM! Regards, fusker

    Motor forward / reverse switch

    zebbguy, I know I asked for it but I got cold feet, looking at your drawing. I thought I knew enough of american relay and switch schematics but apparently there are holes in my knowledge. I read another PM thread recently about the different and confusing schematic styles and I fully agree...

    Motor forward / reverse switch

    Looks like Telemecanique switches but there must be many alternatives. Some questions come to mind: Hole size? Number of poles? (pull out the switch, draw a diagram). Multiple NO and/or NC contacts? Wiring? (see if you can get a BP diagram). Once you have an idea of this, get hold of a seller...

    German blueprint question

    AFAIK it means R = 0.5 mm. (Radius of corner). Does that make sense? To a german tool-and-die maker no corners are just 'sharp' but more or less rounded. I THINK its 0.5 but it just might be 0.05 so better ask a specialist. Gordon comes to mind! regards, fusker

    Moderator:Spam to former members

    Hydraulic press aeration

    I'm no expert but I thought the tank on #7 seemed too small. I installed a hydraulic centrifuge in Singapore and had to get two local experts to help me out. First thing they said was: Get a much larger tank! We bought one from them, and it worked. Can't explain why but it seems those guys had a...
