    When I look at that machine I scratch my head and wonder why K&T are no longer in business. That's a really beautifully designed and put together milling machine. You got a bargain there.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. The same sort of thing happened to most of the British Machine Tool industry 30 to 40 years ago.

    I'm out in Espana at the moment RC. Not back in the UK until September. Once upon a time I'd have volunteered to help but even I haven't got a magic wand. The thirty year old Tyrone would have...

    I think I've told this story before but I can tell it again.

    Make sure you put the new spring in the right way around. When I was young and foolish I managed to fit a replacement spring in the wrong way around. When I cut the retaining wires the spindle flew...

    If it's broken at the end as they usually do you could warm the spring up and create a new end. I've done that several times to get me out of jail.

    That's more or less just like the " Pryor " set I had. I can't complain too much about them going missing. I found them when I was moving a Hor Bore from the " Bryan Donkin " factory that was closing...

    I had that set but it vanished when they had builders in the shop one weekend. Obviously you can only use so many pieces at a time.
