    Sorry, I've confused. I'm talking about a "jack" or cramp used to cramp T&G flooring. I've used them in the last 6 months: they are one of those tools that sits about mostly but makes such a job...

    "Woden" also made floor jacks with a screw thread operated through a bevel gear and cross handle. I find them much more convenient than the long handled version, less getting up and down to set and...

    I wouldn't do it with a standard dado set but have had no issue doing it with dedicated tooling- as in a Wadkin dado set on a Wadkin BRA saw.

    Crox tool- still commonly used in this part of the world. I also have a version like a small sheet metal swager which was used for copper waste pipes way back when copper was affordable.

    Likely the concrete tank for iron staining water was used locally because it was cheap and durable, initially built on site and later precast.

    It's not just the ground water that stinks there, but the whole region. Curiously enough the water in the larger lakes is quite normal to taste and smell.

    My machine has the fractional pitches listed on a separate chart but I agree that 1/16 is 16TPI.
